There should be no doubt that Penis enlargement surgery is generally ineffective and can be harmful to men mentally and physically, according to a new study.
The analysis, published in Sexual Medicine Reviews, gives an overview of 17 studies that evaluated 21 different types of surgery used on 1,192 male penises. According to the survey results, two of the most common procedures are suspensory ligament incision which consists of separating the ligament that holds the penis from the pelvic bone and provides support during erection, and injections of dermafillers such as Sculptra and Juvederm.
As pointed out by The Guardian, the study showed that many men who submitted to penis enlargement surgeries are victims of charlatans and there is no evidence that any of these procedures lead to the desired results.
In contrast, these surgeries often cause serious complications such as penile deformity, shortening and erectile dysfunction, and 80 percent of patients remained dissatisfied, according to research conducted by researchers at the Institute of Psychiatry, Psychology and Neuroscience at King’s College London and King’s College doctor Gordon Muir.
These treatments should never be done according to Muir who told the guardian. Often a person ends up with a mutilated penis, and the percentage of satisfaction with these procedures is not more than 20 percent.
He added that these procedures can often cost between $40,000 and $50,000, and are carried out by scammers who are taking advantage of these vulnerable men.
“Many men who want to undergo penis enlargement procedures have generally an average sized penis but think their penis size is insufficient,” says Muir to the Guardian. Unfortunately, some clinics seem to ignore this. Private surgeons shouldn’t do that. This is bad at all levels.
The study states that people who are considering penis enlargement should first get some counseling, and if they still want to enlarge their penis, they should try penis extenders designed to stretch the penis over time. Penis extenders are still questionable, but they are much cheaper and safer than surgery.
