What Is Penis Enlargement?

Commonly known as male enhancement, penis enlargement refers to a variety of techniques and procedures intended to improve the length and girth of the penis. Andrologists in Dubai can provide both non-surgical and surgical methods for this purpose.

Read on to know more about how it works, the different types of procedures, and the things to consider before going under the knife.

Minimally-Invasive non surgical procedures

As discussed above, there are non-surgical or minimally invasive ways for penis enlargement. Specialised Urologists (andrologists) in Dubai provide this alternative to traditionally invasive or penile surgery.


The Priapus shot, otherwise known as P-shot is considered as a natural way for penis enlargement. This procedure uses the patient’s own platelet-rich plasma or PRP, which is taken from the patients blood in a special way.

This PRP contain proteins or growth factors that are then and after activation, injected into the penis under local anesthetic. PRP is said to rejuvenate and promote penis enlargement by facilitating the growth of penile erectile tissue, especially when used with a penile stretching device. A series of 2-3 injection’s are usually required to gain about 1-1.5 cm, permanent result.

Dermal Fillers

Fillers are used primarily to improve penile girth, without necessarily increasing the length or enhancing the strength of erection.
Results are normally seen within the same day of the treatment. an increase of at least 2cm in circumference is gained. a small top up may be required after 9-12 months as some of the filler can get absorbed by the body.

The fillers used for this kind of penis enlargement are hyaluronic-acid fillers and have been safely administered for more than a decade in different parts of the face and body.

This method has gained popularity in countries like the United States, United Kingdom, South Korea, and Germany. Fortunately, this procedure is now offered by Dr. Shawket Alkhayal, at Novomed Centers.

Surgical procedures

Surgical procedures are gaining popularity amongst men who prefer going under the knife to increase their manhood. This is also called Penoplasty. To put it simply, penoplasty is a surgery aimed to improve the penis size either by its length, girth or both.

Penis Length

To increase penis length, an incision will be made just above the base of the shaft. The shaft is then brought forward by releasing the superficial penile ligaments and partially the suspensory ligament of the penis.
This lengthens the penis by 1inch. To prevent postoperative shortening of the ligament, advanced techniques are usually utilized.
Liposuction can be carried out at the pubic area for men with a noticeable amount of pubic fat. This procedure increases the length, only in the flaccid position. In addition, some men may see a change in the angle of their erection.

Penis Girth (Width)

To increase penis girth, a small amount of fat is taken from either the stomach or thigh areas through liposuction. The fat is then purified and injected with a special cannula under the skin along the penis shaft.
The circumference of the penis will be about 1 inch wider in circumference. It should be noted that girth enlargement should only be slightly bigger than the tip of the penis. The improvement in the circumference will be noticeable in both erect and flaccid states of the penis.

To give the penis a natural appearance, it is preferable to improve both the length and girth at the same time. While it is also possible to have either of the two, penile function will remain normal in terms of urination, erection, and sensation.

How long will the procedure take?

In general, penoplasty takes between 60 and 90 minutes as a day case surgery. It also depends whether you are having your length increased, your girth improved, or both.

The procedure is pain-free since the patient will be under local anesthetic and sedation. no general anesthesia is required. one week of bed rest and 3 weeks of no exercise is advised. no sexual activity for 4 weeks.

How successful are these Procedures?

The success rate of the surgery is high especially when performed by an experienced Andrologist. In fact, the Journal of Sexual Medicine conducted a study evaluating 400 men who underwent the penis enlargement procedure.

The study found that 81 percent rated their satisfaction with their results at least “high” or “very high” resulting in boosted levels of self-confidence. If you have any questions or if you want to learn more about penis enlargement, talk to our urologist in Dubai.
