Pubic Lift for Reconstructing Micropenises

Pubic Lift for Reconstructing Micropenises

Do you have a micropenis? The average penis size for an adult is 8.8 cm (3.5 in) when flaccid and 12.9 cm (5.1 in) when stretched. You have a micropenis if your erected penile length is less than 3.5 in. 

The occurrence of micropenis is a rare characteristic. However, if you happen to have a micropenis, you can plan to get it reconstructed through various penile reconstruction procedures. One such procedure is pubic lift or mons pubic lift. In fact, the pubic lift method is a popular and effective micropenis surgery. At the Allure Plastic Surgery Center, Dr. Elliot Heller has successfully performed a number of penile enlargement surgeries including penis reconstruction using the pubic lift.

Micropenis: Causes and Treatment

In simple terms, a micropenis is an abnormally small penis. Although only 0.6 of the world’s population suffers from a micropenis, those who have it feel shame and lack confidence when it comes to sex life. 

Since penile enlargement methods have considerably evolved over the years, someone with a micropenis can now have an enlarged and better-looking penis to restore his confidence and fully enjoy his sex life. Micropenis is a term referring to a penis size less than what is average. In the case of a micropenis, the other genital structures such as the scrotum, testicles, and perineum are normal. So, it is only the size of the penis which needs enlargement.


There are several factors that cause an abnormally small penis. Mainly, a micropenis is a birth abnormality. Testosterone deficiency during pregnancy is found to be the cause of micropenises. If during pregnancy, human chorionic gonadotropin (hCG) is produced in low quantity, it will result in abnormal development of the penis. This hormone is responsible for the stimulation of the developing testes, so as to produce testosterone.

There are other hormones, which also stimulate the developing testes. Micropenis is the result of the insufficient production of these hormones. Apart from birth defects, cases of micropenises can also arise when the pregnant mother experiences exposure to various types of toxic chemicals.

Micropenis can also be a genetic disorder. However, no single gene has been found to cause such a disorder. Taking some specific fertility drugs during early pregnancy can also result in an abnormally small penis.


The course of treatment is determined depending on whether the patient is a child or an adult. If it is a child, doctors will usually prescribe testosterone treatment to promote penis growth. Adults with micropenises can decide to go for one of the many penile lengthening procedures.

Pubic lift is, by far, the most effective surgical treatment available to increase the size of a smaller-than-normal penis.

What is Pubic Lift?

Penis Pubic Lift in New York, NY

Pubic or mons pubic lift is a procedure in which the surgeon removes the excess skin, tissue, and fat pad from the upper part of the genital area. The surgeons use this method to treat both men and women alike.

This form of surgery is used to treat men with micropenises by correcting the mons pubis area. Due to hormonal changes, the mons pubis area collects excessive fat and gets enlarged, thereby resulting in a micropenis or buried penis. The bulges created by the excess tissue and fat take away self-confidence as well as show when the person wears fitting clothing.

By removing excess fat from the upper genital area, the surgeon increases the visibility of the genitals, tightens the surrounding skin, and gives an aesthetically pleasing look to the genitals. The pubic lift procedure is not just effective, but it can also be performed in just 1-2 hours. Through this penile enhancement method, the surgeon can increase the penis size by almost an inch. If the patient follows a healthy lifestyle and controls their body weight, the results from the surgery become permanent. Most of all, the person gains confidence and enjoys his sex life. 

Micropenis Reconstruction 

The male pubic lift treatment requires detailed planning by an experienced cosmetic surgeon. Based on the specifics of your case and your aesthetic goals, the surgeon will chart out the entire treatment plan.

Dr. Heller will discuss the case with you in a private setting. He will first evaluate the length and size of your penis. He will want to know if you have any urological or sexual problems. After proper investigation, Dr. Heller will plan out the penile reconstruction while considering mobility and sustainability. The goal of the reconstruction is to achieve a functional and aesthetically acceptable penis. The procedure will allow you to have a fully gratifying sex life without the extra skin or fat getting in the way anymore, helping you to boost self-esteem in daily life.

Pubic lift is an outpatient procedure. So, the surgeon will be performing it under the effect of general anesthesia in an outpatient clinic. 

Before the surgery can begin, Dr. Heller will select the target areas which have the most fat and tissue deposits in the upper genital area. Next, he will make some small incisions through which the excess mons fat will be removed. Incision lines are made to avoid scarring later. Once all the excess skin is trimmed, removed, and repositioned, you will have a flat, smooth, and tightened mons pubis area. Incisions will be closed using sutures, which will stay for 1-2 weeks.

Dr. Heller has in-depth expertise in performing a wide range of surgical and non-surgical penile lengthening procedures. When it comes to pubic lift or micropenis reconstruction, he delivers the desired results.  


After your micropenis reconstruction surgery is complete, you can immediately go back home and return to your normal daily life. You may experience a little swelling or mild discomfort post-surgery, but it will go away in a couple of days by following Dr. Heller’s post-operative instructions.

All you will be asked to follow is abstinence from intense exercise or strenuous physical activities for a period of two weeks.

Why Get a Pubic Lift?

Male pubic lift is recommended for men who suffer from a buried penis or micropenis. A micropenis doesn’t only result in a person’s self-esteem and confidence in all aspects of daily life, but it also affects the genital region and the person’s ability to achieve and maintain an erection. 

You should be a suitable candidate for this procedure if you want to:

  • Increase penile shaft visibility
  • Reduce skin irritation
  • Avoid urinary tract infection
  • Get the ability to urinate normally
  • Improve sexual satisfaction
  • Restore self-confidence

In many cases, you can also decide to go for a combination of penile enlargement procedures with your pubic lift micropenis reconstruction. This will help you achieve a brand-new appearance for your penis. All penis lengthening procedures are carried out to correct the aesthetics as well as the functionality of your penis. The ultimate goal is to transform every aspect of your daily life.

What is the Cost of Pubic Lift?

The cost of the pubic fat pad removal procedure varies from one patient to another. During your consultation with Dr. Heller, you will have the opportunity to discuss everything in proper detail. If you choose to combine your mons pubic lift with a combination procedure, costs will go up.

Usually, the starting cost of a pubic lift comes around $5000 and it can go up to $9000 depending on your circumstances.
