What to Expect After Penis Enlargement Surgery

Male SurgeryNew York, NY – Perhaps you’ve been considering a penis enlargement surgery and are close to making your final decision. In addition to understanding the procedure itself, have you taken the time to ask your surgeon what to expect after the surgery?

“One thing I need to be sure I do well is handle expectations of my patients,” says Dr. Elliot Heller, a NY plastic surgeon. “After you’ve just undergone a penile enhancement, you’ll be anxious to get back to your normal activities. While you can’t jump back in the water right away, you might be amazed at how quickly you can resume your normal activities.”

The downtime after a penile enlargement surgery is actually pretty short. If you are looking into a fat transfer, you’ll only need to rest for about 24 hours following your procedure. A ligament release will only have you down about two days before you can return to work. If you are an exercise buff, you’ll want to avoid your normal routine the day following your fat transfer procedure. If you’ve opted for a ligament release to gain extra length, you may need to take about a week off before hitting the gym again.

But the most common question men ask is when they will be able to resume their sexual activity. The good news is, you don’t have to take too long to show your new member off to your partner. If you’ve had a fat transfer, avoid sexual activity for one week. If you’ve opted for Alloderm or a ligament release, you can resume your normal sexual activities in about four weeks. Dr. Heller does advise all of his patients that it can take three to six months to see the final results of their lengthening procedure, depending on what type of surgery they opted for. That requires a bit of patience, but it will all pay off in the end!

Post-surgery, your penis function will return as normal, so there is no need to be concerned with urination or erection ability. There may be some slight pain during an erection, but is very mild and will go away very quickly. And, there are some things you can do to assist in your recovery.

Massaging your penis each day can help you avoid asymmetry and prevent lumps from forming. In some cases, to assist with lengthening, your surgeon may recommend using penis extenders after surgery to gain the maximum length. Always carefully follow your surgeon’s directions for use.

While this is a fairly simple procedure with a very quick recovery time, it is important to remember that cosmetic surgery is still surgery, so there can always be possible side effects and complications. While very rare, risks can include bleeding, infection and negative reaction to anesthesia. Some patients may be experience swelling, numbness and bruising to the area immediately after surgery, but this will subside in a few days.

While results vary from patient to patient, a one to two inch gain in length is average for a lengthening procedure. Patients undergoing a fat transfer or graft can expect up to a 30 percent gain in width. Patients who opt for glanular enhancement will see a five to 20 percent increase in the head of their penis. Maximum results will be achieved by following all post-care directions and using the penile stretching device as advised by your surgeon.

“Immediate results will be seen for patients undergoing fat transfer or grafts,” says Dr. Heller. “For a ligament release procedure, final results may take up to six months to see. That means you’ll need to be patient while waiting to see the final length of your penis. But the surgery is highly successful, and with a quick turnaround, you can be back to your normal self, just with a little added confidence, in no time.”

Dr. Heller is a highly trained and experienced plastic surgeon who has a high satisfaction rate with his penile lengthening and widening procedures. When informed of reasonable expectations, most men will be highly pleased with their results and ready to confidently face the world.
