Study Reveals Penis Enlargement Ineffective and Often Dangerous

Wednesday May 15, 2019

Penis enlargement may be hazardous to your health. Nor does it work, according to a British research paper revealed this week. The paper was published on the website Sexual Medicine Reviews, the official journal of the International Society of Sexual Medicine.

As reported in The Guardian, penis enlargement procedures "do not work, are 'ineffective and risky' and leave many men physically or psychologically scarred.

"There is 'scant' evidence that the range of procedures men undergo in a bid to enlarge their penis actually produce that result, according to a review by British experts," writes The Guardian.

The findings were outlined in the paper published on the website Sexual Medial Reviews from the study by Gordon Muir, a urologist at King's College hospital in London along with researchers the Institute of Psychiatry, Psychology and Neuroscience at King's College London.

"These procedures should almost never be done," said Muir in the Guardian story. "They can cost up to £30,000 or even £40,000, often the man ends up with a penis that is disfigured and there is no more than 20% satisfaction rates with these procedures."

"The researchers reviewed 17 previous studies which assessed 21 different types of procedure, both surgical and non-surgical, performed on 1,192 men, in Britain and abroad," the Guardian report continues.

"The two commonest involve injections of dermal fillers into the penis and an operation called suspensory ligament incision, in which the surgeon makes a cut above the penis and divides the ligament that anchors it."

"The vast majority of men who may wish to have their penis made longer have a penis of completely normal length, but they often feel that their penis is too small," Muir explains in the Guardian story.

Muir also hit out at "the bunch of charlatans out there preying on these vulnerable men" by offering them procedures that are usually of no value.

"Many men who wish to undergo penis enlargement procedures have an average-sized penis but believe their size to be inadequate. Sadly, some clinics seem to ignore this. Surgeons in the private sector should not do this. It's wrong on every level."
