Penis Enlargement

What is Penis Enlargement Surgery?

An increasing number of men are seeking surgical penis enlargement either to increase the length or girth of their penis. Feeling that you are smaller than you should be can have serious effects on self-esteem, confidence and sexuality. A penis enlargement can increase the size and width of the penis permanently and safely. At the Nu, we know how valuable your time is, that's why we aim to secure your free consultation with your cosmetic surgeon swiftly and at a time and place convenient to you.

The Procedure

For penis lengthening, a small incision is made in the pubis (where there is pubic hair), and the top ligaments are cut (the underside ligaments are left in place to maintain stability). The penis is then lengthened by straightening it and using your own tissue to extend the length.

Penis girth or width is achieved by using your own fat from the thigh and very carefully transplanting it to the penis. This is a complex procedure that should only be performed by an experienced surgeon.

Penis legthening and widening can be performed at the same time. You can discuss this fully at your free consultation with your specialist cosmetic surgeon. Following your procedure, we aim to return you safely to your own home the same day or the morning after your surgery.

Later Progress

After surgery, you may feel bruised and sore but this will subside over the coming weeks. Normally, no more than simple analgesia such as paracetamol is sufficient. We normally recommend people have about a week off work to recover and recuperate from the surgery. All of your aftercare is included in your package, meaning you can relax, safe in the knowledge that all your follow up appointments, dressings, any required medications and much more is covered by your comprehensive aftercare programme.

When can I go back to normal day-to-day activities?

Depending on the surgery, we recommend that people take a week or two off work following the procedure (more if your job is particularly physical). Strenuous activities, heavy lifting and intense exercise should be avoided for about 6 weeks after your surgery. Sometimes, the area may be painful or sore for a few weeks afterwards, this should be considered if your job involves sitting for long periods.

Are there any alternatives to this surgery?

In some cases, certain forms of non surgical cosmetic procedures may be helpful. You can discuss this fully with one of our friendly advisors or surgeons at your free consultation.

Can I combine this procedure with other surgery?

Yes, you can normally combine this procedure with other surgeries. You can discuss this in full at your free consultation.

Will I have altered sensation in the area?

Whenever skin is cut, nerves are also cut; this may result in altered sensation to the area, particularly at the incision site. All care will be taken to maintain sensation as much as possible.

What weight should I be for surgery?

You should be at a healthy weight for your height when you have surgery as this lowers risks related to anaesthetic. For the best aesthetic results, we recommend that you are at your ideal weight at the time of surgery as further weight loss or gain can change the results of your surgery.

When can I fly after the procedure?

You should check with your surgeon regarding safe timings of air travel following your surgery. Many airlines have their own protocols and you should inform your travel insurance company if you have had recent surgery.

We recommend that in the weeks after surgery, you are close to a Nu Cosmetic clinic in case you have any concerns, so foreign holidays may be best avoided until a few months after your procedure.

Am I too young/ too old for this procedure?

All clients must be at least 18 years of age to have surgery. We do not set an upper age limit for our procedures, suitability for surgery will be discussed at your free consultation with your surgeon.
