Can Weight Affect Your Penis Size?

Fat Man Measuring His Belly

New York, NY – If you’ve gained a few pounds, especially around the middle, do you have a feeling your penis is shrinking? While that’s not actually happening, your weight does affect penis size – or at least how your penis appears.

We live in a culture that is conscious about health. Still, being overweight continues to remain a big health concern. While everyone understands that gaining excessive weight can lead to a range of health issues, very few people know that it can also have an effect on the penis size.

So, the big question is – ‘Are being overweight and penis size related to each other?’ If they are, what does it exactly imply? Below, we’ll discuss this crucial topic in some more detail. 

What is the Average Penis Size?

Before we answer the question at hand, it is important to know what the average penis size is.

Whether you know it or you do not, you might have certainly wondered about it at some point in your life.

A lot of men wonder if their penise size is adequate. Researches tell us that most men falsely believe that they have a small penis, but this is not true.

This is an illusion which can actually harm a man’s self-confidence.

According to the National Health Service (NHS), the average erect penis size is 5.16 inches. Most men have a penis of normal or average size. Only 5% of men have been reported to have a small penis, which measures less than 10 cm, as per a survey.

What Being Overweight Does to Your Penis?

Good and satisfying sex takes away stress. It allows you to achieve the well-being of both your mental and physical health.

When it comes to having sex, the majority of men show concern about the size of their penis. All men want to have a bigger penis and last longer in bed. 

But being overweight causes issues. In fact, the worst thing you can do to your penis health is gain excessive weight.

At Allure Plastic Surgery Center, we receive many calls from overweight men who want to talk about their penis size.

We have dealt with cases where the men are just too fat and they simply can’t see their penis at all. Excessively fat men have growth on the penises. When the surrounding areas of the penis gather extra fat, the penis gets buried under the skin.

Excessive growth of flesh and skin in this manner can also lead to different types of infections. All these are extremely worrying situations and serious attention must be paid for improvement. Circumcision is an answer to this problem, but every case is not the same.

It is best to seek the expert consultation of a plastic surgeon who specializes in penis enlargement.

In many cases, being overweight makes it difficult for the foreskin to be pulled back. This again is a crucial state which needs immediate attention.

Not paying attention and getting the required treatment can worsen the situation further and it can be the reason for multiple other issues including cancer.

Our weight affects our entire bodies, says Dr. Heller, who regularly performs penis enlargement procedures.

“For my patients, it’s important that they be at a healthy weight to get the best results possible from their procedure – and then they have to maintain that weight. Typically, the heavier you are, the larger this fat pad will be.

And because the pad surrounds the penis, the larger the fat pad is, the smaller your penis will look.” “What we term as a ‘pot-belly’ can absolutely have an effect on perceived penis size”. says Dr. Elliot Heller, a New York plastic surgeon.

“Carrying extra weight doesn’t make your penis shrink, it just makes it look as if it has. Everyone has what is known as a fat pad in the pubic area.

That means that when you lose weight, you’re decreasing the amount of fat that is around your penis. As the fat pad decreases in size, it will appear that your penis is growing in size.

In fact, some studies have shown that for every 30-50 pounds lost, men can expect to see one inch of added length to their penis that was previously lost to the fat pad.

So, if you are beginning to become self-conscious about your penis size, first look at the size of your belly. If it’s grown, chances are good if you lose weight, you’ll see your penis size come back to its normal self.

Fat men may think of losing weight as an option to improve their penis condition. But this doesn’t help a lot of people. In fact, a large number of overweight people do not get the desired results.

Even after losing weight, the additional skin and tissues stay there and so the problem remains. To increase the size of your penis, you should go for circumcision and penis lengthening surgeries.

Experienced plastic surgeons offer several ways to enlarge the penis size. What is crucial is that you need to keep your weight under control after surgery.

Men can have excellent results from their penile lengthening procedure with me, adding one or two inches, and increasing their confidence and self-esteem.

But, if they don’t take care of their bodies and begin to gain weight, the gains they achieved during the procedure will begin to be lost.”

How Else Does a Small Penis Result from Being Overweight?

While obesity doesn’t directly reduce the penis size, it does cause a lot of damage to the penis health over time. When a man is overweight, he may lose potency gradually and suffer from erectile dysfunction.

But what exactly leads to erectile dysfunction?

The excessive amount of fat in an overweight man’s body takes away the strength of blood vessels. When the blood vessels lose strength and become weak, the overweight man fails to have full and strong erections.

So when the penis erects, the size of the penis reduces compared to the length of the penis in the past.

It is highly recommended to keep your body weight under control. If you have gained weight over the recent past, you should start taking your health really seriously and take the required steps to lose weight.

While you can go ahead and try various types of weight loss diets and exercises, you should keep checking the results from the same too.

If weight loss tips and tricks don’t help you much or you are overweight for quite a long time, you should definitely turn to a doctor and discuss your health issues and get the effective remedies and treatment.

Being overweight makes it hard for men to take care of their penis health. If the size of your penis seems to have reduced due to extra body weight, you may want to consider penis enhancement surgery.

Penis Enhancement Surgery by Dr. Heller

Dr. Heller has a high satisfaction rate among his male enhancement surgery patients. His penile lengthening and widening procedures allow men to tackle their lives with confidence again.

But, it’s important that any patient considering such a procedure also understands the relationship between weight and penis size.

“If you’ve gone to the lengths to come to my office, I want you to fully understand everything that can affect penis size,” says Dr. Heller. “And keeping yourself at a healthy weight will offer you the best chance at maintaining your desired penis size, and maintaining your confidence.”
