How Penuma® Penis Enlargement Surgery Works
Penis Enlargement Procedures And Associated Costs
There are different male enhancement procedures, each of which have a different approach and associated costs.
Penis enlargement surgery option: fat injections
One way to temporarily increase penis size is by fat injection. In this procedure, the surgeon takes cells from the fatty portions of your body and transplants them into the penile shaft. The surgeon then moves the fat along the sides of the penis through a series of incisions and injections.
Fat injections are temporary, and can cause a variety of side effects. Fat injections can cause penile deformities such as lumps and hardened areas on the penis.
Even for those who do not experience side effects, fat injections get reabsorbed by the body and so need to be administered repeatedly.
It’s therefore no surprise that the American Urological Association (AUA) does not consider this method effective or safe.
Penile enlargement surgery option: suspensory ligament division
Another method is called suspensory ligament division or release. This cosmetic procedure may appear to increase flaccid length by cutting the suspensory ligament that links the organ to the pubic bone.
Suspensory ligament divisions do not actually increase penile length or girth. Scarring may cause the procedure to backfire and result in a retracted or shrunken penis.
As with penile fat injections, this method is not recommended by the AUA.
Penis enlargement surgery with the Penuma implant
Penuma is the first implant for aesthetic enhancement of the penis cleared by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA).
The Penuma procedure can lengthen and widen the flaccid penis through the use of a crescent-shaped implant made of medical-grade silicone. The implant is slipped through a small incision made on the scrotum, then wrapped around the shaft of your penis.
The brief procedure is outpatient, meaning that, in most cases, you’ll be back home the same day.

Penis Enlargement Surgery Frequently Asked Questions
We invented the implant in the early 2000s and subsequently received 510(k) clearance. A large clinical study and several case studies have demonstrated the safety and effectiveness of the Penuma® implant.
Our IRB-approved clinical study done over a five year period found very high levels of satisfaction with the implant over the short and long-term and significant improvements in patient self-confidence.
This depends on the method you use for penile augmentation. With Penuma, there is short recovery time allowing the patient to return to routine activities within 2-4 days. The implant is made with soft, medical-grade silicone. It is designed to feel natural whether you’re flaccid (“soft”) or erect (“hard”). One recent study found partner satisfaction to be quite high.
The penile enhancement procedure is currently provided in Beverly Hills, Chicago, Washington D.C., Boston, Phoenix, New York, Louisiana, Austin, Atlanta, and the Bay Area.
Please let your consultant know if you have a preferred clinic location or find a physician near you. More locations will be available soon.
As with any procedure, there are potential benefits and potential risks.
Our IRB-approved, retrospective clinical study found that patients experienced high levels of satisfaction with the implant and increased levels of self-confidence as a result of the implant.
There were a very small number of adverse events reported (e.g., infection in 3% of cases and seroma in 5% of cases) and often due to patient non-compliance with post-operative instructions. Therefore, it is imperative that patients follow all post-operative instructions.
The medical staff will discuss all possible risks, complications, benefits, and alternatives, including no procedure, with patients prior to the procedure.
Does the Penuma® implant affect my ability to get or sustain an erection, sensitivity during sex or ejaculation?
Based on an IRB-approved clinical review of 400 patients over 5 years, there were NO cases of changes to penile function, ability to get or sustain an erection, ejaculation, or sensation during sex.
As with any surgical procedure, individual results may vary.
