Penis enlargement surgery option: fat injection

Fat injections are a risky method that uses cells from the fatty portions of the body. The surgeon will transplant fat into the penile shaft, then use a series of incisions to inject it into the sides of the penis. 

Some risks associated with penile fat injections include infections, hardened lumps, and other deformities. Worse, even without side effects, any positive results are temporary at best. 

Penile enlargement surgery option: suspensory ligament release

Suspensory ligament release procedures can misleadingly appear to increase the length of the flaccid penis by cutting the suspensory ligament, the ligament which joins the penis to the pubic bone. 

This procedure causes scarring and does not actually increase penile length or girth. 

In fact, scarring on the penis may cause the length to decrease

It’s worth noting that the American Urological Association discourages this method as well as penile fat injections.

The FDA-cleared option: penis enlargement surgery with the Penuma implant

Penuma is the first 510(K)-cleared penile implant for cosmetic penis enlargement.

This procedure uses a tube-shaped implant made of medical-grade silicone that can increase penis girth in both flaccid and erect states. 

Unlike other penis enlargement methods, the Penuma procedure does not leave scarring on the penis itself. A small incision is made on the scrotum to insert the implant in a brief outpatient procedure that allows most patients to return 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 most recent, 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”).

In two recent studies, patients reported high satisfaction rates with the results

The penile enhancement procedure is currently provided in Beverly Hills, Chicago, Washington, DC, Boston, Phoenix, New York, Austin, Louisiana, 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. 

The Penuma® implant is made of a soft, medical-grade silicone to provide a natural feel. The implant contains no liquid or gels.
The Penuma® implant is manufactured in an ISO-certified facility under U.S. quality controls

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.

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.
