Penile Enlargement Surgery

A micro penis is a small penis that is a congenital condition whereas a buried penis refers to a penis hidden and trapped under the skin of the stomach, thighs, and scrotum.

Different procedures of penile surgery
There are different approaches to fulfill the goal of an enlarged penis and that can be done by the following procedures-
Penile Enlargement surgery involves the insertion of a crescent-shaped piece of medical-grade silicone under the penile skin to make the penis longer and wider. To do so, the surgeon first makes an incision above the penis and then inserts the silicone implant through the incision on the shaft of the male penis. The surgeon will ensure the silicone implants fits the shape and size of the penis.
Transfer of fat cells
During a fat transfer procedure, a surgeon will remove the fat cells from the fatty area of the body and inject them into the shaft of the penis. This is done by making small incisions into the sides of the penis and injecting the purified fat cells into the operating site. For better results, fat cells are mixed with PRP.
Suspensory ligament division
