What is Glanular Enhancement?
Manhattan, NY – Do you wonder if you might benefit from male enhancement surgery? The good news is, you’re not alone and there are more options than ever before in the world of penile enhancement. Dr. Elliot Heller is a New York specialist who explains how one technique, glanular enhancement, might benefit you.
The term glans refers to the rounded head of the penis. It feels spongy, due to the cap of the corpus spongiosum, which is the cylinder that surrounds the male urethra. Within the penis are two cylindrical, erectile bodies call the corpora cavernosa. They run parallel to the corpus spongiosum, and the glans surrounds and covers them. The size of the glans varies greatly from male to male, in proportion to the size of the penis.
When a male experiences an erection, the blood flow to the corpus spongiosum increases, causing the glans of the penis to become erect. This happens at the same time the rest of the penis becomes erect. Because there is a large network of nerves inside the glans, it is the most sensitive part of the penis. Because of this, many men benefit greatly from a glanular enhancement procedure.
Glanular enhancement isn’t a widely used technique in the penis enlargement world, and is one that has only been perfected by a few surgeons and Dr. Heller is one of them. A patient can choose between permanent or temporary enhancement. The temporary option will require maintenance to keep the desired size, however. If the patient opts for permanent enhancement, a plastic surgeon will use a graft of the patient’s own skin or AlloDerm to increase the size.
In the permanent surgery, the surgeon must first create a space for the graft within the glans of the penis. The placement will depend on if the patient is simply having a glanular enlargement procedure or that in conjunction with a penile widening procedure. The graft section that is used to enlarge the glans must fit appropriately into the pockets the surgeon developed in the glans.
Depending on the size of the grafts used during the surgery, glanular enhancement can increase the circumference of the head of the penis. The use of an AlloDerm graft can yield up to a 30 percent increase in the flare of the glans. The average increase is typically 15-20 percent. The procedure typically takes about an hour.
If performed in conjunction with a penile widening, there will be no need for extra incisions and there will be no need to use a penile stretching device to achieve the best results.
There are several benefits to this type of procedure. The first is that men no longer have to feel they may be inadequate due to the size of their penis. Additionally, because the glans is the most sensitive part of the penis, having it increase in size means there is a greater area to feel sensation in.
