Penis Enlargement Methods: Who is The Right Candidate For Surgical and Non-Surgical Procedures?

The size of the penis has been a matter of concern for most men. But does penis size really matter? This is a question that’s been asked again and again, and while a credible sexologist would say that penis size doesn’t matter, a lot of men think otherwise. Most men believe that having a longer, bigger penis is important because it gives a deep vaginal penetration to women.

Most men are convinced that a longer penis ensures a fulfilling sexual relationship and boosts their confidence and self-esteem.

You must have seen tons of commercials that claim to enlarge the size of the penis over a short time. The internet remains overpacked with advertisements for multiple methods that claim to increase the penis size. While many of these penis enlargement methods fail to deliver, some have shown improvement. Manufacturers who sell male enhancement products know that men really wish for a longer penis to improve their sexual life. Many advertisers make money by selling pills that give no results at all. This is simply because a lot of men believe that the claims might actually have some truth. That’s why herbal supplement for penis enlargement has now turned into a billion dollars industry worldwide.

Broadly speaking, penis enlargement methods can be categorized into non-surgical and surgical methods. Below, we discuss both of these in detail so that you are aware of what really works and what doesn’t.

Non-Surgical Methods for Penis Enlargement

While browsing online or reading men’s health magazines, you might have come across many of these methods.

Vacuum Pumps:

In the penis enlargement device genre, a vacuum pump is the most popular one. It consists of two parts – a cylinder and a pump. When using it, you need to put your penis inside the cylinder and then use the pump, which pulls more blood into the penis. As a result, the penis becomes erect and increases a little in size. But this type of penis enlargement is temporary. Excessive use of a vacuum pump can also damage the spongy tissues in the penis and affect erection, too. Penis pumps are, however, often used to treat erectile dysfunction in men.


You’ll come across a wide range of these pills that claim to increase the size of the penis. Usually, these herbal supplements contain a host of essential vitamins, minerals, and hormones. While every pill manufacturer makes tall claims of penis size lengthening, there’s no solid evidence to back such claims. Plus, most of these pills can cause serious side-effects to one’s health.


Enlargement creams are also widely available to enhance the size of the penis. These creams come along with attractive ads like ‘Achieve Mega Size Penis’ and ‘Enlarge Your Penis Up to 12 Inches’. Even Amazon sells some of these creams. Instructions on the packing tell you to massage the cream into the penis for 3-4 minutes three times daily. However, there’s no clear proof that these male enhancement creams really deliver.


This is a ring worn at the base of an erect penis. After wearing the clamp, you can reduce its diameter to build pressure at the base of the penis and push the blood that has flow in towards the front of the penis. Penis clamp method is used to increase the girth of the penis. Using this clamp properly for a few minutes over a period of 3-4 weeks can enlarge your penis a little. But you should always avoid applying this method for a long period, as using the clamp for over 30 minutes will cut the blood supply to the penis altogether and harm the penile tissues.


There are various exercises that are said to increase the size of the penis. Most of these exercises focus on stretching the skin of the penis, thereby lengthening its size. One such exercise is jelqing, which refers to the manual squeezing of the penis. The history of these exercises dates back to the old Arabs who passed on the technique from one generation to another. Jelqing is a type of exercise that is done without getting your penis erect. Such exercises take too much time on a daily basis and can cause pain. As far as penile exercises are concerned, it is important to understand that the tissues in the penis are elastic type, not like other body muscles that can be bulked up and grown over time.

Most non-surgical methods try to stretch the skin of the penis and all of them involve a lot of disciplined effort. While you may think that the size of your penis has grown bigger after trying one of these techniques, the actual length remains the same. It only appears that the penis has become longer. Such processes and techniques also come along with multiple risks. If you are not careful, you can easily damage the soft, elastic tissues in your penis and impact erection. Methods like hanging weights from the penis have also resulted in snapping the tissue.

Surgical Methods for Penis Enlargement

Penis Enlargement Surgical Methods

Surgery provides an alternative to enhance the size of the penis. But there are very few surgeons who perform this type of surgery because succeeding requires extensive experience and perfected skills.

The surgery conducted to increase the size of the penis is medically known as penile enlargement, penile augmentation surgery, phalloplasty, or penoplasty. Many critics admit that penile surgery does provide better results than other penis enlargement methods. But penoplasty isn’t free from risks, and so it’s highly recommended that you work with a surgeon who has a successful track record.

Penis enlargement surgeries can be done either to increase the length or the width of the penis – or both.


The penis remains attached to the muscles of the pelvic floor through a ligament, called the suspensory ligament. Due to this connection with the tough fiber, some portion of the penis shaft remains concealed from the view and as a result, the penis size appears to be smaller. Penile surgery can uncover the hidden part of the penis shaft, thus making the full length visible. The surgeon, therefore, cuts the ligament and most of the shaft comes into view. Post-surgery, you may be asked to do some exercises to keep the ligament detached during the healing period.


The penis size can be increased in width, as well. In this surgery, the plastic surgeon harvests fat from other areas of the body and injects it into the penis. Plastic surgeons also use another technique to widen the penis, termed as an implanted allograft. This surgical method involves using donor tissue for the penis grafting process.

Plastic surgeons use many other surgical methods to increase the size of the penis. The penis in some people appears to be smaller in size simply because those people are overweight. The extra fat at the base of the penis can also be removed through a surgical technique called liposuction, thereby improving the size of the penis. As the field of reconstructive surgery evolves more, you can expect more useful and precise surgery techniques to be used by surgeons. And with more and more people opting for male enhancement, surgeons predict that surgical methods for increasing the size of the penis will only become more common in the future.

Who is the Right Candidate for Penile Surgery?

The average size of a normal penis is 5-6 inches. Anyone whose penis length is below the average size can definitely opt for penile surgery. Reconstructive surgery is also a suitable option for men who have lost some or entire portion of their penis due to an accident or injury. Some people suffer from  “hidden penis syndrome”, which leads to anxiety and frustration. Penile surgery can be a better alternative to improve the penis size in this case. Getting operated on by an experienced reconstructive surgeon will ensure precise, long-lasting results.

Surgical methods can enhance the size of the penis, both in length and girth. Male enhancement cosmetic surgeons can use surgical techniques to treat a number of male discrepancies through a scrotal lift, pubic lifts, circumcision, etc. However, it is always advisable to seek the consultation of a trained surgeon and discuss the details of your unique case before making a final decision.

Lifestyle Changes to Increase the Size of Your Penis

While you may not be aware, making some positive changes to your lifestyle can also help you grow the size of your penis.

Here’s what you need to do:

Exercise Regularly:

Having a healthy penis is about improving the blood flow through the arteries. Erection occurs when blood from the arteries flows into the penis, which means exercise can really help. If you don’t exercise on a regular basis, make sure you develop this good habit soon. By exercising more, you can clear the blood vessels and improve blood flow to the reproductive organ. As a result, you can boost the length and overall growth of the penis.

Eat Lots of Fruits and Vegetables:

A healthy diet helps you improve the growth of the penis. Fruits and vegetables are a rich source of antioxidants, which you need to get rid of free radicals in your body. The less free radicals you have in your body, the stronger your blood vessels will become. This, in turn, helps your penis to grow and achieve a healthy length and width.

Get Rid of Negative Feelings:

Negativity is a silent killer. Many men ruin their sex life only because of their negative thinking. When you’re occupied with negative thoughts, it reduces blood flow to the penis. If you plan to have a  gratifying sex life and develop a healthy penis, you must get rid of negativity.


Practicing meditation helps people solve so many health issues. People who are frustrated with their sex life should spend time on meditating, as it will help them achieve a peaceful state of mind. If you meditate on an everyday basis, you can improve the overall circulation of your body. Increased blood flow helps develop the penis to its full length, as a result.

Take a Bath with Warm Water:

Heat expands things, it is a very well-known fact. Taking a cold shower shrinks the penis size because it reduces circulation. On the other hand, taking a warm shower improves the circulation of the body and the blood flow to the penis. If you are worried about the size of your penis, take warm baths every day and you’ll see the penis grow healthy.

Apart from opting for a non-surgical or surgical method (whichever suits your specific case), you should definitely try these natural methods to ensure the healthy growth of the penis. Though these are simple lifestyle changes, they can make a good, positive impact on your penis and overall health.
