1. Silicone implants 

Silicone implants are surgery that involves the insertion of a crescent-shaped piece of medical-grade silicone under the penile skin to make the penis longer and wider. Nowadays, the Penuma procedure is the only penis enlargement surgery that has been cleared for commercial use.

During the surgery, the surgeon initially makes an incision above the penis and then inserts a silicone slip through it onto the shaft of the penis. The process will shape the silicone implant to ensure that it fits the size and shape of the penis.

2. Fat transfer

In this procedure, a surgeon will remove fat cells from a fatty area of the body and inject them into the shaft of the penis. They initiate it by making a small incision into the sides of the penis and injecting purified fat cells into these areas.

Injecting the fat cells from elsewhere in the body into the penis aims to enhance the girth or width of the penis. The process of injecting fat cells can add an average of 2.39-2.65 cm (0.94-1.04 in) after 12 months. With this surgery, you might get some possible side effects such as swelling and distorting of the penis, lumpiness, disfigurement, and scarring.

By doing this surgery, the graft can also lose 20-80% of the new volume within 1 year of surgery, so people may need multiple surgeries to achieve the desired result. This is proven that injections may increase girth but they came with a high complication rate.

3. Suspensory ligament division

This surgery offers a way to make the flaccid penis appear longer by cutting the suspensory ligament. During the process, the surgeon will sever this ligament and move the skin from the abdomen to the shaft of the penis. The process of cutting the ligament increase the length of the penis. Though the process makes the flaccid penis hang further down, it does not enhance its size.

It can lead to a lack of support for the penis during an erection and the process can make penetration difficult during sex. Also, there are some other procedures such as removing fat from the area surrounding the penis. It may make the penis appear larger, but again it does not change its length.

Who should have surgery?

This surgery is necessary for a person who has a condition called micropenis. The micropenis condition is when an adult has a penis of 9.3 cm or shorter when stretched. It usually results in the form of hormonal factors and it can occur with some genetic conditions.
