Penis Enlargement Surgery: The Pros, Cons, and Options

For many men, considering penis enlargement surgery isn’t solely about physical augmentation; it’s a quest for improved confidence and enhanced sexual satisfaction. But as with all surgical interventions, it is crucial to weigh the potential benefits against the possible downsides.

Luckily, doctors of men’s sexual health, like Dr. Farhan Malik, have developed modern methods of penis enlargement. Prometheus by Dr. Malik offers a minimally invasive, permanent, and guaranteed penis enlargement procedure to add the size you want without the risks of anesthesia or invasive surgery.

This article aims to guide you through the pros and cons of penis enlargement surgery, as well as the non-surgical enlargement alternatives, to help you make an informed decision.

What Is Non-Surgical Penis Enlargement?

Non-surgical penis enlargement involves minimally invasive procedures to add length and/or girth to the penis. There are a few kinds of non-surgical male enhancement, but they do not all offer the same benefits or results.

Fat Transfer

Fat transfer procedures encompass the extraction of fat cells from a high-fat region of the body and their injection into the penis shaft.

Surgeons carry out this operation by producing small cuts on the penis sides and introducing the refined fat cells into these sections.

Temporary Fillers

Temporary penis enlargement fillers, also known as injectable dermal fillers, are non-surgical procedures designed to enhance the appearance of the penis temporarily. These fillers are typically made of hyaluronic acid (HA) or other biocompatible materials.

The effects of this kind of penis enlargement filler are temporary and can last from several months to up to a year, depending on the type of filler used and individual factors. Over time, the body naturally absorbs and metabolizes the filler, causing the size enhancement to gradually diminish.

Permanent Penis Enlargement with Collagen-Activating Filler

Non-surgical penis enlargement with permanent collagen-activating fillers is a modern approach to male enhancement. It is a minimally invasive procedure that aims to increase the size of the penis without the need for surgery, or general anesthesia.

Prometheus by Dr. Malik uses a proprietary filler designed to stimulate the body’s natural production of collagen, a protein that provides structure and elasticity to the skin and other tissues.

The results you see are your own body’s collagen, so your size increase is permanent and natural.

What Is Penis Enlargement Surgery?

Penis enlargement surgery, also known as phalloplasty, is a surgical procedure that aims to increase the size of the penis.

It’s important to note that the American Urological Association does not recommend penis enlargement surgery for men who are unhappy with the size of a normal penis, given the significant risks associated with the surgery.

How Does Penis Enlargement Surgery Work?

There are two main methods of male enhancement surgery:

Silicone Implants

One approach to penis enlargement surgery involves placing a curved, medical-grade silicone piece beneath the penile skin to augment both its length and width.

In this operation, a surgeon initiates by creating an incision over the penis. They then introduce a silicone sheath through this cut and position it along the penis shaft. The surgeon molds the silicone implant to match the penis’s size and contour.

This surgery is performed under general anesthesia.

Suspensory Ligament Division

Suspensory ligament division surgery, also known as ligamentolysis, presents a method to enhance the visible length of the flaccid penis. It involves severing the suspensory ligament that links the penis to the pubic bone.

During this surgical process, the surgeon detaches this ligament and repositions skin from the abdomen to the penis shaft. While this might cause the flaccid penis to droop lower, it doesn’t truly increase its size.

To create an illusion of a larger penis, the surgeon might also propose accompanying procedures such as fat removal from the penile surroundings. However, it’s vital to note that this procedure only alters the penis’s appearance, not its actual length.

How Much Does Penis Enlargement Surgery Cost?

Penis enlargement surgery cost can vary across regions and depending on the type of surgery. On average penis enlargement surgery costs from $15,000 to $30,000.

What Are The Pros and Cons of Penis Enlargement Surgery?

The Pro:

Increased Size

The most obvious advantage is the increase in penis size, both in terms of length and girth. This physical change can lead to enhanced sexual satisfaction for both the individual and his partner.

The Cons:

Surgical Risks

Penis enlargement surgery, like any surgery, comes with inherent risks such as infection, bleeding, or adverse reactions to anesthesia.

Postoperative Pain

Some degree of postoperative pain and discomfort is expected, which may require pain management interventions.

Potential for Dissatisfaction

There is a risk that the results may not meet the individual’s expectations. Misaligned expectations can lead to dissatisfaction and regret after enduring such an invasive procedure.

Risk of Complications

Specific to penis enlargement surgery, potential complications could include erectile dysfunction, scarring, or deformity.


Penis enlargement surgery can be expensive, and as it’s usually classified as a cosmetic procedure, it is not covered by insurance.

Recovery Time

Post-surgery recovery can take time, requiring you to take a break from sexual activities and normal activities until complete healing occurs.

Potential for Implant Issues

Over time, the implant may shift, warp, or become misshapen, requiring further surgery to correct.

What Can Non-Surgical Penis Enlargement Do For You?
