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.

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

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.
