Dr. Whitehead was recently recognized in the August Issue of Urology Times for his work in penis enlargement surgery. A copy of the article follows:
IN THE PUBLIC EYE
Penile enlargement called 'safe and effective'
Penile enlargement may be a taboo subject, but E. Douglas Whitehead, MD, says this form of cosmetic surgery is very common now.
"Penile enlargement, if performed by a qualified and experienced surgeon and realistic expectations are stressed, is safe and effective," said Dr. Whitehead, associate clinical professor of urology at Albert Einstein College of Medicine, New York, and president of the American Academy of Phalloplasty Surgeons. "And as far as the 'cosmetic' issue goes, if a woman who feels her breasts are unattractive can take advantage of the numerous options in cosmetic breast surgery from augmentation to reduction to lifting, why can't a man have the same cosmetic options in terms of penile enhancement?"
Enhancement phalloplasty and girth enhancement have been discussed in the literature for many years and have been in use for about a decade. In Dr. Whitehead's practice, patients either have a lengthening or widening alone, or a lengthening and widening in a single session. Dr. Whitehead uses only Allograft Dermal Matrix Grafts (Alloderm®) that he considers state of the art. The technique is very safe and has a very high success rate, he said.
