Penile Enlargement Q & A
What is penile enlargement?
Penile enlargement, also known as penile augmentation, is a cosmetic urology procedure designed to increase the length and width of your penis. Dr. Blick proudly offers penile enlargement with the cutting-edge Penuma® silicone implant. If you’re self-conscious or embarrassed about the shape or size of your penis, penile augmentation is worth considering.
How does penile enlargement work?
Penile augmentation with Penuma® is an outpatient procedure.
The Penuma® is a crescent-shaped piece of medical silicone inserted under the skin of your penis. Once placed, the Penuma® makes your penis longer and wider. There are three different types of Penuma®: large, extra-large, and extra-extra-large.
During penile enlargement surgery, you’re placed under general anesthesia. Once you’re asleep, Dr. Blick makes a small incision in your groin, just above the base of your penis. After making the incision, Dr. Blick carefully puts the Penuma® device through the hole. The device stretches the skin and soft tissues of your penis, making it look and feel larger.
Prior to Penuma® surgery, Dr. Blick creates a custom Penuma® tailored to the unique size and shape of your penis. This preemptive procedure ensures natural-looking, custom results.
Are there any risks associated with penile enlargement?
Penile augmentation surgery is safe and well-tolerated. Patient satisfaction rates are very high; however, like any operation there are risks associated with the procedure. Besides the routine risks of anesthesia, the most important risk is infection of the implant which only occurs in 3-4% of patients.
Following surgery, make sure to follow Dr. Blick’s recovery instructions carefully. Take your medications as prescribed and be patient during recovery.
Is penile augmentation covered by health insurance?
No. Health insurance doesn’t cover penile augmentation with Penuma®, because it’s an elective, cosmetic urology procedure. If you have questions about the overall cost or concerns about making payments, Dr. Blick will be happy to work with you.
Is penile enlargement always successful?
Penile augmentation with Penuma® has a proven track record of success. Since 2004, thousands of men have undergone the procedure, with 81% of them reporting they rated their satisfaction as “high” or “very high.”
