Penis Enlargement Procedures And Associated Costs

There are different enhancement procedures, each of which involve different costs.

Male enhancement in the San Francisco area. Penuma is an FDA-cleared penile implant that can effectively increase flaccid length and girth.

Penis enlargement surgery via fat injection

In a penile fat injection, the surgeon will cut fat cells from a fatty portion of the patient’s body, then inject them into the penis through a series of small incisions on the organ itself.

Fat injections are risky. Possible side effects include infections, lumps, and other deformities. 

Even without side effects, any size gains are impermanent, meaning the procedure needs to be repeated regularly.

Subcutaneous fat injections are not recommended by the American Urological Association (AUA).

Penile enlargement surgery via suspensory ligament division

Another operation, called a suspensory ligament release, may seem to increase the apparent length of the flaccid organ by severing or “releasing” the suspensory ligament, which is responsible for connecting the pubic bone to the penis. 

For this procedure, the surgeon will cut and slide skin from the stomach down to the penile shaft. While the operation may slide the flaccid organ lower, it does not actually increase penile length or girth. 

Worse, suspensory ligament release can in fact shrink penis size, and is also not recommended by the American Urological Association.

Penile enlargement surgery via Penuma® implant

Penuma® is the first implant cleared by the FDA for cosmetic enhancement of the penis. This procedure uses a crescent-shaped piece of medical-grade silicone that can expand and elongate the penis.

In a brief, outpatient procedure, your Penuma provider inserts the implant through a small incision made along the scrotum.

The procedure typically sees patients home the same day.
