Often men think that their penises are too short or narrow and feel the need to do something about it, whether out of embarrassment, self-esteem, or simply the need to please their partners. There are many treatments for penis enlargement, but do they work?

      Penis Enlargement Facts: What's the Average Size of a Penis?

      The studies are pretty surprising, and you should also note that you can't base them on your favorite pornographic film, as male actors often use penis pumps before a scene or have permanent penis enlargement surgery. A new study published in the British Journal of Urology International, used a standardized measuring procedure in order to yield the most reliable results.

      The study correlated about 15,500 measurements of men’s penises from around the globe. Using this data, they were able to compute averages. The correct measurement standards. Measurements were taken from the pubic bone to the tip of the glands on the top of the penis. To solely measure the penis, fat that coversthe pubic bone was compressed. In addition, any extra length from foreskin was also not measured. The circumference of the penis wasmeasured either in the middle of the shaft or at the base of the penis.

      According to this study and analysis, an average, flaccid penis is 3.61 inches and an average erect penis is 5.16 inches long. When it comes to girth, for a flaccid penis, 3.66 inches and for an erect penis 4.59 inches.

      Are There Any Societies That Have Practiced Penis Enlargement?

The purpose is to slice the penis and spread out the skin to make it appear larger. This society has also practiced penile implants and bloodletting practices. It's uncertain how long the methods have been happening, but they are still recorded today.

      What Works to Increase Penis Size?

      Many men may be doubtful of quick treatments to enlarge the penis. But like most treatments, they must be given in the proper manner or dosage, and it's essential to not self-treat to avoid embarrassment from a trip to the Emergency Room. Most of the treatments noted below may also offer some element of pain, so you'll have to decide if the treatment is proper for you, or perhaps just some counseling to accept your body is all that's required.

      What Are Some Non-Surgical Treatment Options?

      Since many men are hesitant to seek surgery, and many surgeons are reluctant to offer penile enlargement surgery unless it's for medical reasons, other non-surgical treatment options are available to explore.

      Is There an Oil or Herb for Penis Enlargement?

      Yes, oils and herbs will fall under the same category, as the oil should be distilled from the herb before it's applied to the genitalia. It's also essential to buy oils for this specific purpose. The last thing you want to do is use oil from your cabinet only to discover that it burns, and now you have a terrible red rash on your genitals. If you search online, you'll find several options.

      Will Penis Enlargement Creams & Lotions Work?

      Oils can be a bit slippery but perfect as a lubricant for sex, but some people may prefer a cream or lotion that not as greasy or slippery. Lotions will contain the same effective herbs and essential oils that oil will and have additional ingredients. It's best to seek a lotion that contains natural ingredients. The only problem with a lotion or cream is that the additional lotion ingredients will diffuse the properties from the oils. A cream or lotion is excellent for sex play but will probably not affect length or girth.

      Which Food Increases Penis Size?

      Food can increase penis size but not in the way you think. No one food will magically cure your problem, but if you have a health condition that affects your erections or length of time having one, you can certainly lose weight, exercise, and eat better. The weight loss will help remove the fat around your groin, thus making your penis look bigger. Men can certainly benefit from the nutrients of various foods, such as spinach, which is high in folate and boosts blood flow, which is known to improve erections too.

      How to Increase Penis Size in Ayurveda

      Ayurveda is a complete practice that includes various natural treatments to improve your health or medical condition. A better diet, treatment with herbs or oils, and multiple exercises, such as Kegel or Jelqing, can help to improve your penile function.

      Are There Any Penis Enlargement Pills That Work?

      There are some pills or supplements offered for penis enlargement that contain herbs and medication, but they may only provide a few millimeters extra. Some may contain hormones that can benefit erections but not increase penis size. These have similar herbs and oils as the products mentioned above. There can be risks in taking oral medications, and you should discuss these with your doctor before taking them.

      Vacuum Devices: Pumps, Weights & Stretching Can Offer Mixed Results

      Using a vacuum device is like stretching or pulling the tissues around the penis or hanging weights on it. These items are acceptable to use occasionally, but over time, using a vacuum device or other tools may not give a permanent increase in girth.

      What Is Jelqing and How Does It Work?

      Jelqing is an exercise involving repeatedly pulling the semi-erect penis using the thumb and index finger to increase erection size. It may be part of another practice, such as Ayurvedic medicine, to treat a specific health condition. It's basically to stretch your penis to create micro-tears in the tissues. This damage will make your penis look more extensive as it heals.

      What About Penile Extenders?

      A penile extender is a type of traction device that is worn for a specific length of time. It's strapped to the penis and worn for several hours. This has the benefit of stretching the tissue around the penis slowly to ease discomfort. Some studies have reported that penis length has extended up to two centimeters, but you should note that this may not be permanent.

      If Nothing Else Works, What About Penis Surgery?

      If your doctor has suggested trying the other methods first but doesn't work out for you, you can consult a surgeon about penis surgery. This method may be effective for you, but you should be aware that the recovery time and expenses are excessive and may not work.

      Penis Girth Surgery Vs. Penis Length Surgery

      There are about three main types of penis surgery. One will increase the width of a penis, and the other will increase the length. It's up to a man which he prefers. There can be a severe risk with surgery. It may simply not work at all, costing you heavy medical bills, or worse, it may cause damage to your penis and testes that will require further surgery.

      Surgical Methods of Penis Enlargement

      The most common technique involves cutting the ligament that connects the penis to the pubic bone. The next step consists of a skin graft (tissue that is removed from another part of the body) and sewn to the base of the penis, allowing for extra length. Another surgical method is installing a penile implant inside. You may constantly feel the pressure of this device.

      Can Liposuction Be Effective?

      Liposuction is a medical process that removes fat from around the abdomen and can also be used around the penis. The theory is that once the fatty tissues are removed, the buried penis will be more prominent, and the penile length will be longer during full erection. It can offer some difference in length up to 2 cm and can be a long-term change if a person's weight is managed in the future.

      How Much Does Penile Enlargement Surgery Cost?

      Unless the surgery is for medical reasons, most insurance companies won't cover the costs. Costs for the procedure can begin at $15,000 and increase after that.

      The Bottom Line

      If you have anxiety and worry over your partner not loving you for what you consider a small penis, you'll need to talk to them about it and seek a counselor's advice. But if you feel confident, you're ready to explore your options, try some of the non-surgical techniques first. It's essential to consult with a doctor first before attempting any treatment at home or penile vacuum pumps. Your doctor will assist you in making the right choices for you and your health. Surgery comes with higher risks, but most will advise that you first try some of the other treatments.
