Size Sometimes Matters
Penis Enlargement Surgery is a cosmetic procedure to increase the size of a penis. There are cases where penis enlargement is medically necessary, such as patients with a micropenis, a congenital condition, or a buried penis, which can be congenital or due to age. Penis enlargement, in these cases, is to restore a functional penis or the ability to stand up and pee and have penetrative intercourse.
The ads are everywhere. Pills, gels, weights, stretches, vacuum tubes, or supplements promise to make a man’s penis larger. Even a popular cosmetic surgery promises to lengthen your penis by snipping a ligament. The truth is none of these work. Some cosmetic procedures, such as surgical removal of the suprapubic fat around the groin, will reduce the amount of tissue around the buried penis and show its true length, but it will not add length or girth.
The belief many men have that their penis is too small is real. However, most men have a normal-sized penis and overestimate the size of others’. Still, there are times when penis enlargement is recommended in non-medical cases. It is important that you visit a urologist such as Dr. Karpman when considering this type of surgery. On average, only one 510(K)-Cleared implant is proven to increase penis size by one to two inches - a Penuma Implant.
The Penuma Implant is the first 510(K)-Cleared implant for male cosmetic enhancement. Made of medical-grade silicone, the crescent-shaped sheath is inserted beneath the skin of the penis through an incision on the scrotum. Only a few medical professionals across the country have been certified to perform this surgery, and Dr. Karpman at El Camino Urology in Mountain View, California, is one of them.
When medically necessary, the benefit of penis enlargement surgery is a functional penis. Whether medically necessary or cosmetic, a few benefits of our Mountain View Penuma procedure are:
Expert Men’s Health Provider
During the consultation, Dr. Karpman will review your medical history and discuss your reasons for wanting the surgery and your expectations. The ideal candidate for Penuma in Mountain View is over 21 years of age and circumcised. If you aren’t circumcised, Dr. Karpman can perform one before your enlargement surgery. As one of the few surgeons in the United States approved to perform a Penuma surgery, rest assured Dr. Karpman’s advice toward the correct treatment plan comes from an expert men’s health provider looking out for your best interests and not trying to sell you an unnecessary cosmetic procedure.
Short and Sweet
In preparation for Penuma Mountain View patients will receive general anesthesia for the, on average, one-hour surgery. The medical-grade silicone sheath will be inserted beneath the skin of the penis through an incision on the scrotum. Most procedures are performed on an outpatient basis. Coming out of general anesthesia, you will need to have a friend or family member drive you home.
Live Your Life to the Fullest
Results vary by individual, but most patients report an increase of one to two inches in length, and some report an increase in girth, as well. Self-esteem and an improved sense of well-being are also common results after having a Penuma Implant.
Take it Easy
Penuma patients can walk around after the surgery, but it is essential not to do too much too soon. Take time to relax and heal. There will be some soreness and discomfort post-op, and you will need to follow closely the post-op instructions you are given to ensure a smooth recovery. Patients can usually resume normal activities, including sex, within a few months of surgery.
Penis Enlargement Surgery is not covered under insurance. However, Dr. Karpman will discuss costs with you during your consultation.
