Navigating the topic of penis enlargement can feel daunting, especially when considering the financial implications. This guide seeks to simplify the process, offering clear insights into the costs associated with various penis enlargement options.
Making the leap into penis enlargement is exhilarating. Many men feel anxiety about their penis size, both erect and flaccid, and want to make a change to improve their self-esteem. Having a penis you are proud of can improve your sexual health as well, making it easier to have a satisfying sex life and romantic relationship. However, there is often one question that men find to be confusing: how much does penis enlargement cost?
While choosing penis enlargement is an exciting decision, the financial aspects are critical pieces of the process. It’s an important conversation to have, as it sets realistic expectations and helps you plan for the procedure.
Understanding Penis Enlargement
Penis enlargement procedures vary from surgical to nonsurgical methods. They aim to enhance length, girth, or both, depending on the individual’s needs and expectations.
Generally, surgical male enhancement is more expensive than nonsurgical penile enlargement procedures due to the need for a surgical team, anesthesia, and recovery costs.

Penile Enlargement Surgery Procedures
There are varying methods of penis enlargement surgery. It is important to understand the differences in surgical techniques and possible risks and outcomes.
Here are the two most common penis enlargement surgery options.
Penile implant surgery can enlarge the penis, but it is often performed to help men with erectile dysfunction that has not responded to other types of treatments. Some penile implants do not increase size and only help support erections, while others will increase length and girth.
The procedure involves placing inflatable or flexible implants, often made from medical-grade silicone, into the penis.
There are a few different methods for penile implant surgery. Here’s an overview of how penile implant surgery generally works:
Some penile implant surgeries require the patient to have a circumcision procedure before the surgery if not already circumcised.
The patient is put under general anesthesia to ensure comfort throughout the procedure. This is considered a significant surgery, so general anesthesia is the standard of care.
The surgeon makes an incision above the penis, at the base of the penis, or in the lower abdomen.
Placement of the Implant
The penile implant is inserted through the incision. If the implant is inflatable, a pump and valve are placed inside the scrotum.
Once the implant is in place, the surgeon will close the incision with stitches or sutures.
After surgery, there’s a recovery period before the implant can be used for sexual intercourse, typically around 4 to 6 weeks.
Furthermore, like any implantation surgery, penis enlargement surgery carries risks, such as infection, perforation of the implant, implant breaking apart, blood clots, and internal erosion or adhesion.
For men seeking less invasive penis enlargement, nonsurgical methods may be a more suitable option. Minimally invasive procedures like our proprietary fillers can enhance penis size without the need for invasive surgery or general anesthesia. Always consult with a professional, like Dr. Malik and the team at Prometheus, to determine the best course of action for your specific goals and needs.
Ligament Release Surgery
Suspensory ligament release surgery is a type of penis enlargement surgery that aims to increase the perceptible length of the penis. This procedure does not add any length to the penis, but increases the amount of the penis you can see.
The penis is attached to the pubic bone by the suspensory ligament, and this surgery involves cutting this ligament to allow the penis to hang more externally, thus appearing longer.
Here’s a step-by-step overview of how the procedure generally works:
The patient is put under general anesthesia or local anesthesia with sedation to ensure comfort throughout the procedure.
The surgeon makes an incision in the pubic area.
The suspensory ligament, which holds the penis up during an erection, is cut. This causes the penis to drop downwards, increasing its visible length.
The incision is then closed with sutures.
Post-surgery, the patient may need to use weights or stretching devices to prevent the ligament from reattaching.
It’s important to note that this surgery generally doesn’t increase the size of the penis when erect. Also, it carries risks, including infection, nerve damage, and reduced sensitivity.
Moreover, a potential downside of this surgery is that it will decrease the angle of an erection. The penis may not stand as firm as it did before when erect, which may impact sexual function. Many medical journals report a high rate of functional issues after suspensory ligament release surgery. Without the suspensory ligament intact, the penis is unstable during erections and lacks support. This can make sex uncomfortable.
Overall, outcomes from suspensory ligament release have not consistently been favorable. Patient and partner satisfaction rates range from 30–65%.
Nonsurgical Penis Enlargement
When it comes to nonsurgical male enhancement, there are also lots of options available to men. However, most of the most common over-the-counter options are not effective and other nonsurgical procedures are only temporary. Here is an overview of nonsurgical penis enlargement procedures.
Pills, Lotions, Oils, Supplements, and Penis Enlargement Products
Unfortunately, there are no over-the-counter penis enlargement products that have been proven to work. Pills, lotions, oils, and supplements are usually made with fillers and herbs that have not been tested for effectiveness. Some can cause skin irritation due to poor-quality ingredients or cause interactions with other medications you are taking.
Temporary Dermal Fillers
Penis enlargement using hyaluronic acid does add size, but only temporarily. Hyaluronic acid fillers break down in the body over time. Results typically last 12 to 24 months.
Permanent Enlargement at Prometheus by Dr. Malik
Unlike temporary dermal fillers, our proprietary filler creates a permanent size increase without any touch-ups. After numbing the area sufficiently, Dr. Malik applies microinjections to the penile area. According to your goals, we can treat the penile shaft, glans penis (head), and scrotum in the same appointment.
Our filler encourages your body to produce more collagen, adding bulk and size to your penis. Since the collagen is your own, your penis will still look and feel natural. The collagen will not break down and the effects are permanent.

Factors That Affect the Cost of Penis Enlargement
Several elements influence the cost of penis enlargement, including the procedure type, geographical location, and the practitioner’s experience and reputation. Additional treatments or procedures, if required, will also affect the total cost.
Breakdown of Penis Enlargement Surgery Cost
Surgical penis enlargement costs can include the surgery itself, anesthesia fees, surgical facility costs, medical tests, and post-surgery care expenses. It’s essential to understand that these costs can vary widely based on the specific procedure and individual requirements.
Penis enlargement surgery costs on average between $16,000 and $30,000 depending on the method you choose, your goals, and your geographic location.
Breakdown of Nonsurgical Penis Enlargement Cost
Non-surgical penis enlargement is typically more affordable and includes costs per treatment session and the total number of sessions required.
Temporary dermal fillers for penis enlargement start on average at $10,000. To maintain your size, you will need to pay for touch-ups as needed.
The permanent penis enlargement procedure we use at Prometheus starts at $6,000 depending on your size goals. In the long run, permanent penis enlargement dermal fillers will be less expensive because they do not require any touch-ups to maintain your size.
At Prometheus, our team led by Dr. Malik ensures that costs are transparent and competitive, with no hidden fees or additional unexpected costs.
Insurance and Financing Options for a Penis Enlargement Procedure
Unfortunately, penis enlargement is often categorized as a cosmetic procedure and is not usually covered by insurance. However, we offer convenient financing options, and it’s worth exploring these to understand what is affordable and manageable for you.
Why Penis Enlargement Cost Shouldn’t Be Your Only Consideration
While cost is a significant factor, it shouldn’t be your only consideration when deciding on a penis enlargement procedure. The experience, skill, and reputation of your specialist are paramount. Quality results and safety are invaluable and often justify the investment.
When a cosmetic procedure is performed by an underqualified person, the procedure can cause devastating results. Lack of sexual function, unnatural appearance, infection, and other side effects are common risks of unethical cosmetic and aesthetic penis enlargement practices.
