  • Techniques & Expectations

    Surgical techniques used for penile enlargement (enhancement phalloplasty) -- penile lengthening and penile widening (girth enhancement) -- have been in the urologic literature for many years.

    There are various ways of enlarging the penis. In my practice, patients either have a lengthening or widening alone, or a lengthening and widening in a single session. Glanular enhancement may be performed alone or combined with any procedure.

    I personally see in consultation all of my patients before and after surgery and perform all the surgical procedures myself.

    PENILE WIDENING (PERICAVERNOSAL) Click to see before and after photos of widening procedures:

    We have noticed a permanent increase in penile girth (circumference) in the flaccid state with our pericavernosal (P/C) Allograft Dermal Matrix Graft (Alloderm ®) technique. While a 40 to 50% gain in girth (flaccid state) may be achieved, most men get an increase of about 30%. An approximate 10 to 15% gain in girth is obtained in the erect state.

    Because autograft dermal fat grafts for penile widening require a donor site(s) and, therefore, incision(s) and scar(s) --- 6 years ago I stopped using autograft dermal fat grafts and since then only use Allograft Dermal Matrix Grafts (Alloderm®) in my patients who wish penile widening.

    The advantages of Allograft Dermal Matrix Grafts (Alloderm®) over autograft dermal fat grafts are: it eliminates the need for incisions and scars at the donor sites (because there are none) and it significantly reduces the length of surgery.

    With the Allograft Dermal Matrix Graft (Alloderm ®) technique we are adding multiple layers of Allograft Dermal Matrix Graft (Alloderm ®) under the penile skin on top of the erectile chambers to give thickness by "stacking" or "folding" the grafts. I do not use strips of Allograft Dermal Matrix Graft (Alloderm ®), but create a conjoined graft. There are no contour defects and appearance and feel are normal. A penile stretching device is suggested after the widening procedure to combat Allograft Dermal Matrix Graft (Alloderm ®) contraction that might occur.

    I have found this technique to be effective with a high satisfaction rate.

    PENILE WIDENING (ALBUGINEAL/CAVERNOSAL)

    Some men wish a wider penis in the erect state. In the last 7 years several techniques of albugineal/cavernosal penile widening have been introduced that allow an increase in the volume of the tunica albuginea in the erect state. These techniques have utilized: dermal grafts, vein grafts and porcine grafts. Because of my experience with Allograft Dermal Matrix Graft (Alloderm ®) for pericavernosal girth enhancement in the flaccid state, I am now offering albugineal/cavernosal (A/C) penile widening using Allograft Dermal Matrix Graft (Alloderm ®) to obtain a wider penis in the erect state. Because albugineal/cavernosal penile widening is a new surgical technique, efficacy is not known and the risks and complications are not known. We expect an approximate 30% gain in girth in the erect state and 10 to 15% gain in the flaccid state. A vacuum device is advised postoperatively.

    COMBINED PENILE WIDENING PROCEDURE (PERICAVERNOSAL AND ALBUGINEAL/CAVERNOSAL)

    For men wishing a wider penis in the flaccid and erect state, I combine my standard technique of penile widening (P/C) in the flaccid state using Allograft Dermal Matrix Graft (Alloderm ®) with the new albugineal/cavernosal (A/C) penile widening technique using Allograft Dermal Matrix Graft (Alloderm ®) for flaccid and erect penile widening. Because the combination is a new surgical technique, efficacy is not known and the risks and complications are not known. We expect an approximate 30 to 40% permanent increase in penile girth in the flaccid state and an approximate 30 to 40% gain in the erect state.

    These procedures are performed in an outpatient ambulatory setting, either at a hospital or in a private surgical facility. State licensed personnel use a combination of anesthetic techniques that will assure you a painless experience.

    SECONDARY PENILE WIDENING

    Click to see before and after photos of widening procedures:

    Sometimes a patient who has had penile widening by: liposuction/lipotransfer (fat injection) or autograft dermal fat graft or Allograft Dermal Matrix Graft (Alloderm ®) wants additional girth enhancement.

    During the last six years I have used my Allograft Dermal Matrix Graft (Alloderm ®) penile widening technique to insert Allograft Dermal Matrix Graft (Alloderm ®) above or below the previously inserted graft with very satisfactory results in patients who had one or a combination of the above widening procedures.
