Warning: Penis Enlargement Products And Penile Surgeries Not Safe.
Source: Thailand Medical News  Oct 02, 2019
To some the topic might seem a laughing matter but the sad truth, in 2018 alone there was 167 deaths reported due to botched penis enlargements surgeries in China and India. . These were cases that were reported, there are hundreds more that are not.  98 of them were foreigners going there for the procedures off which 23 were Caucasian males, showing that the issues are not confined to Asian males.

The market for penile enlargement creams and tools is worth more than US$ 320 million with China being the largest supplier and America, Australia, Britain and Netherlands being the biggest markets, indicating that penis size envy is a growing issue worldwide among males. The proliferation of porn and also the issues that males do not talk openly about their concerns and problems, ends with many of them resorting to dubious online sites selling or offering dangerous remedies.
 
Penis size is a common source of anxiety. Ads for penis-enlargement products and procedures are everywhere. A plethora of pumps, pills, weights, exercises and surgeries claim to increase the length and width of ones  penis.
 
However, there's little scientific or medical support for nonsurgical methods to enlarge the penis. And no reputable medical organization endorses penis surgery for purely cosmetic reasons. Most of the techniques you see advertised are ineffective, and some can damage one’s penis.
 
Online sites offering  many types of nonsurgical penis-enlargement treatments, and often promote them with serious-looking advertisements that include endorsements from "scientific" researchers.

Monitor closely, you'll see that claims of safety and effectiveness haven't been proved.
Marketers rely on testimonials, skewed data and questionable before-and-after photos. Dietary supplements don't require approval by the Food and Drug Administration, so manufacturers don't have to prove safety or effectiveness. This article will look at the effectiveness and side effects of penis enlargement methods
 
Most people who consider penis enlargement treatments have normal-sized penises, meaning that they are adequately sized for sexual activity and urination.
 

The Penis Anatomy

 
Several structures within the penis  allow it to perform its main functions of urination and ejaculation:
 
The urethra  carries urine from the bladder. It is a thin tube running throughout the penis and carrying urine out of the bladder. The urethra is part of the corpus spongiosum, which turns into the glans penis, or the helmet of the penis.
 
The erectile body is also known as the corpus cavernosum. It quickly fills with blood to achieve an erection prior to ejaculation.
 
The corpus cavernosum surrounds the corpus spongiosum, extends from just behind the glans to the pelvis, and splits into two chambers that attach to the right and left ischial tuberosity (the bones that men sit on).
 
Manufacturers claim that products, including pills, creams, and stretching devices, can increase penis size. Some people also consider surgery that is offered by unscrupulous clinics in countries like China and India. However, the almost all medical studies have shown that none of these methods work and surgeries can be dangerous. We look at the evidence for various penis enlargement methods below:
 

a) Traction Devices

Traction devices aim to increase the length of the penis by stretching the penile tissue. A person places a weight or small extending frame on the flaccid penis to gently lengthen it.

According to a scientific review from 2010, penile extenders are the only evidence-based technique for lengthening, and the results may not be inferior to penile surgery.
 
Several studies have investigated the effects of traction devices, with varying results. Some results suggest that the devices can lengthen the penis by as much as 1–3 centimeters (cm).
In most of these trials, participants wore the devices for between 4 and 6 hours a day. In one, they wore the devices for 9 hours a day.
 
Researchers are also investigating whether using traction devices before or after penile surgery could improve outcomes. The evidence concerning traction devices is, however, limited. Determining their safety and effectiveness will require more research, and the US Urology Care Foundation currently does not support their use.
 

b) Vacuum Devices

A vacuum device contains a tube that fits over the penis. Pumping out air creates a vacuum that draws blood into the penis, causing it to swell.
 
People usually use vacuum devices to treat impotence, or erectile dysfunction. No strong scientific evidence suggests that they can increase penis size.
 
In addition, overusing a vacuum pump can damage penile tissue, which can lead to weaker erections or worst severe problems.
 

c) Supplements and Topical Creams

Many different pills and creams promise to increase penis size. They tend to contain various vitamins, minerals, herbs, or hormones. There are many companies trying to sell pills to enhance penis size. At best, they won't affect you at all. At worst, they may contain drugs such as sildenafil, which can be dangerous for men with heart disease.
 
Most supplements increase nitric oxide levels such as l-citrulline or l-arginine, which may improve blood flow to the penis. While this could give a partial erection, it won't actually lengthen the penis. Plus it can be harmful if you have any other underlying medical condition.
 
There is no evidence that any topical product can increase the size of your penis, and some may cause a skin reaction or skin irritation.
 

d) Exercises. 

Sometimes called jelqing, these exercises use a hand-over-hand motion to push blood from the base to the head of the penis.
 
Although this technique appears safer than other methods, there's no scientific proof it works, and it can lead to scar formation, pain and disfigurement
 

d) Injections

Some men get injections of their own fat or a synthetic material to increase the size of the penile shaft. It is unclear whether this is safe, and it has not been proven that injections can increase penis size. And as with the other procedures, this won't improve the function of the penis.
 
Injections of various oils and other materials have also been used, usually without medical supervision. These strategies can cause inflammation and infections, and there is no evidence that they work. Not only are they dangerous but they can lead to penile cancer or even a need to remove the whole organ in cases of severe infections that arises.
 

e) Cosmetic  Penis Surgery

(being promoted by unscrupulous clinics and hospitals in India and China)
 There are two main types of penis enlargement surgery.
 
Penile augmentation involves injecting fat cells into the penis. The aim is to increase girth, or width, as well as length, in some cases
 
The procedure carries risks. Side effects may include swelling and distortion of the penis. If a side effect is severe, the penis may require removal.
 
Another method of penile augmentation involves grafting fat cells from elsewhere in the body onto the penis. This is less invasive and can add an average of 2.39–2.65 cm after 12 months.
 
However, the organ can lose 20–80 percent of the new volume within 1 year of surgery, so people may need multiple surgeries to achieve the desired result.
 
The second main type of surgery is suspensory ligament release. This ligament anchors the penis to the pubic area and provides support during an erection. If a surgeon cuts the ligament, this changes the angle of the penis, which can make it look longer.
 
On average, suspensory ligament release can increase flaccid penis length by between 1-3 cm, but patient and partner satisfaction rates tend to be low. The lack of support during an erection can make penetration difficult.
 
Like the US Urology Care Foundation, the American Urological Association state that penile augmentation surgery is neither safe or effective.
 

Average penis size

 
The fear that your penis looks too small or is too small to satisfy your partner during sex is common. But studies have shown that most men who think their penises are too small actually have normal-sized penises. Similarly, studies suggest that many men have an exaggerated idea of what constitutes "normal” penis size.
 
According to one study, the average erect penis is 13.12 cm (5.16 in) long.
Penises come in all shapes and sizes, and they can vary considerably.
A study conducted in 2014, which included 15,521 men from around the world, determined that:
The average flaccid penis was 9.16 cm, or 3.61 inches (in), long and 9.31 cm (3.66 in) in girth.
The average erect penis was 13.12 cm (5.16 in) long and 11.66 cm (4.59 cm) in girth.
The researchers estimated that 5 percent of men have an erect penis longer than 16 cm. In another 5 percent, the erect penis would be shorter than around 10 cm.
 

When is one a candidate for surgery?

 
The medical community only deems surgery necessary if a person has a condition called micropenis. This term describes a penis that is 7.5 cm or shorter when stretched.
 
Penis enlargement surgery can cause several side effects, including swelling and infection. These can be so severe that the penis requires removal. Surgery can also cause erectile dysfunction.
 
The need for penis-enlargement surgery is rare. Surgery is typically reserved for men whose penises don't function normally because of a birth defect or injury.
 
Although some surgeons offer cosmetic penis enlargement using various techniques, it's controversial and considered by many to be unnecessary and in some cases permanently harmful. These surgeries should be considered experimental. There aren't enough studies of penis-enlargement surgery to give an accurate picture of risks and benefits.
 
The most widely used surgical procedure to lengthen the penis involves severing the suspensory ligament that attaches the penis to the pubic bone and moving skin from the abdomen to the penile shaft. When this ligament is cut, the penis appears longer because more of it hangs down.
But cutting the suspensory ligament can cause an erect penis to be unstable. Severing the suspensory ligament is sometimes combined with other procedures, such as removing excess fat over the pubic bone.
 
A procedure to make the penis thicker involves taking fat from a fleshy part of the body and injecting it into the penis shaft. Results may be disappointing, however, because some of the injected fat may be reabsorbed by the body. This can lead to penile curvature or asymmetry and an irregular looking penis.
 
Another technique for increasing width is grafting tissue onto the shaft of the penis. None of these procedures has been proved safe or effective and can even affect potency and your ability to obtain an erection.
 

The hormone that affects penis growth during puberty

 
The penis grows throughout puberty in response to a testosterone hormone called dihydrotestosterone (DHT). Men continue to make DHT throughout life, but the penis stops growing toward the end of puberty. Flaccid penis size can decrease with age. These are natural changes that are simply a fact of life.
 

Tips to improve sex life

 
While you can't make your penis bigger, there are a few strategies that can make it appear larger.
 
 
Negative feelings about penis size can inhibit a person's enjoyment. Most penis enlargement methods do not work, but counseling can help by building self-esteem and correcting distorted ideas related to body image.
 
Other top tips include trimming the pubic hair, which can make the penis seem larger.
 
Also, carrying extra weight around the belly can make the penis appear smaller.
 

When to see a doctor

 
A person with a condition called penile dysmorphophobia disorder (PDD) may benefit from talking with a doctor.
 
There are two types of the disorder, but both involve consistently underestimating the size of one's own penis, while overestimating the sizes of those belonging to others.
 
This can lead to feelings of depression, sexual anxiety, and sexual dysfunction. Some people with the disorder find it difficult to get or maintain an erection, and they experience a lack of sexual satisfaction.
 
PDD is a form of body dysmorphia. This classification describes an all-consuming preoccupation with what a person perceives to be a flaw in their appearance.
 

Small penis anxiety (SPA)

People with this condition are often so concerned that others will consider their penis to be small that they do not want to get undressed around people.
 
Thailand Medical News recommends that anyone concerned about the size of their penis should  talk to a doctor or sex therapist.
 
For several reasons, many men overestimate the size of the average penis, which can lead them to feel unsatisfied with their own. There are many factors involved in sexual arousal and penis size itself does not make a man more or less likely to become aroused or to perform sexually. However, 15 percent of men who underestimate their own penis size do experience erectile dysfunction, regardless of whether the penis is smaller or larger than average.

If you are concerned about erectile dysfunction be sure to see your doctor. Lifestyle changes and treatments may help But if you are a healthy man who simply wants enlarge your penis, remember that there are no safe and effective methods of doing this.
 
Save your monies by avoiding products that promise otherwise,  and consider seeking out a medical specialist in your area to discuss your concerns. Never attempt to self treat or seek treatments from unlicensed doctors or unscrupulous clinics and hospitals that offer cosmetic penile surgeries.
