The Battle for the Bulge: What You Should Know About Your Flaccid Penis Size and How to Make It Bigger

It’s not something that men talk about often, but we all know it’s true: you want to be the biggest in the room, even when you’re not erect. 

Research tells us that men who report their penises as being larger than average also believe they are more attractive overall. That is some strong mojo at work. So it makes sense that those feelings of confidence would extend to nonsexual nudity as well. 

But what if you feel lacking in your non-erect flaccid size? Can you get a bigger flaccid penis? Fortunately, the answer is yes. Prometheus by Dr. Malik offers a procedure that encourages your body to create more collagen, permanently increasing your size—both flaccid and erect.

Why Look Bigger Flaccid?

Even in nonsexual situations, you still want to feel confident in your body and your penis. 

Nude beaches, resorts, and cruises are getting more popular, making “nakations” a multi-billion dollar industry. People all over the world are embracing nudist, also called “naturist”, tourism. It can be a freeing experience—unless you are too worried about your flaccid penis size to relax. That can ruin a great getaway.

And it doesn’t just come up on vacation. From locker rooms to saunas, to simply hanging out with your partner, nonsexual nudity happens. You still deserve to feel confident in your penis size, no matter the situation or company.  

How Big Should My Flaccid Size Be?

According to a recent study, the average flaccid penis size falls between 2.8 and 3.9 inches in length. The average flaccid penis girth was between 3.5 and 3.9 inches.

However, there is no relationship between flaccid size and erect size. So there is no one answer to how big your flaccid size should be; just what size would make you feel the most confident. 

Growers vs Showers

You have probably heard about the difference between “growers” and “showers” before—you maybe even know in which camp you belong. Men who are growers have a bigger difference between their flaccid penis size and their erect penis size. Showers don’t gain as many inches between the two states. 

There is definitely truth to this, and it simply comes down to age and genetics. 

Some men are predisposed to be either a grower or a shower due to their genetics (just like they are more likely to have a certain hair color or height). According to an international survey, approximately 79 percent of men are growers while 21 percent are showers.

Recently researchers have also found that as men age, changes in their hormones and penis tissues, such as decreases in collagen, can affect their penis size (both flaccid and erect) as well as whether they are a grower or a shower. 

What Is Collagen?

Collagen is a protein that provides a foundation for your body’s bones, skin, muscles, and connective tissues. Collagen accounts for 30% of your body’s protein. 

A youthful, healthy body has an abundance of collagen to give tissues structure, elasticity, and strength. As we age, our bodies create less collagen in our skin and tissues. The lack of collagen and elastic fibers is what causes older skin to be thinner and less resilient. This happens to both men and women throughout our bodies.

Collagen is an important tissue in the penis, and as men age collagen in the penis decreases. Testosterone also decreases with age, so these factors together can affect your flaccid penis size. This can also cause men to become showers as they get older.

Penis Size FAQ:

Can I Increase My Flaccid Size?

While some dubious companies market products for penis enlargement, most nonsurgical options simply don’t enlarge flaccid or erect penis size. 

Does Penis Enlargement Surgery Work?

When most men begin researching penis enlargement, they seek surgery. Penis enlargement surgery may increase penis size, but not without risks. Surgery comes with several risks as possibilities, including scar tissue, erectile dysfunction, and infection.

Do Vacuum Pumps Enlarge Your Penis?

Although vacuum pumps are often marketed as a solution to make your penis larger, their only purpose is to assist with erectile function. A man with a small penis who uses a vacuum pump will only experience the feeling of a bigger penis because the vacuum pressure brings all the blood to the penis, temporarily creating an immediate erection.

However, this size difference is not permanent and will diminish after sexual intercourse when the blood rushes back out of the penis.

Are Penile Traction Devices and Stretching Exercises Dangerous?

Penis stretching, using a penile extender, or performing penis enlargement stretching exercises such as jelqing are not reliable ways of increasing penis length or girth. No medical studies have shown these attempts to work. However, they can be harmful and tear or bruise the penile tissue when misused.

Are There Other Ways to Increase Penis Size?

There are some simple ways you can make your flaccid penis look bigger: 

  • Stop smoking to improve blood circulation 
  • Avoid cold temperatures when you will be naked
  • Give your penis a tug while flaccid, increasing a small amount of blood flow
  • Losing weight helps ensure more of your penis is visible instead of hidden under your belly or a suprapubic fat pad
  • Keep your pubic hair trimmed

How to Make a Flaccid Penis Bigger Permanently

As mentioned before, collagen plays a big role in the size of your flaccid or erect penis. Increasing the amount of collagen in the penis permanently increases the size of the penis. 

The Prometheus Procedure includes microinjections of dermal filler that encourages your body to create more of its own collagen. This permanently increases your penis girth, both flaccid and erect. Unlike temporary filler or fat transfers, the collagen stays put. Your body will not reabsorb it.

How Does The Prometheus Procedure Increase Flaccid Size?

To encourage your body to create more collagen in your penis, Prometheus by Dr. Malik applies dermal filler to the penis. It is a simple process and takes just one hour. 

  1. Numbing Cream

After you get comfortable, the first step is applying a topical numbing cream. 

  1. Local Anesthetic 

Once the numbing cream has taken effect, a lidocaine injection will ensure the procedure is virtually painless.

  1. Collagen-Stimulating Permanent Filler

Dr. Malik treats the penile shaft, glans, and scrotum as per the patient’s procedure plan with multiple microinjections of the collagen-layering activation filler. At the end of the procedure, the affected areas are wrapped in gauze. Over the following weeks, your body will absorb this filler and replace it with its own collagen. The additional collagen creates more girth. Since it is permanent, this collagen is visible when you are flaccid and when you are erect.
