Breaking The Taboo: Busting Myths About Penis Enlargement
Updated: 7 days ago
Perhaps something that all men can agree on is the desire or fantasy of having a considerable size for their manhood. And when we say considerable, we mean big. The bigger the better, as many men would believe. While some women argue that size doesn't matter and it’s all about the performance - it cannot remove the fact that some men still wish they were bigger.
Surprisingly, a large number of men who desire bigger manhood believe they have below-average sizes. The first truth is that they usually have normal-sized tools. And while in fact, the micropenis does exist, a considerably small number of men's penises fall under that category. Secondly, there are several ointments, medications, exercises, and procedures claiming they can effectively enlarge a man’s knob. However, these things almost entirely never work and may even do more harm than good.
Our experts at Medicci Aesthetics let us in on a few myths surrounding penis enlargement to settle the score once and for all.
Does Penis Stretching Work? - Not Scientifically Proven
There is little to no evidence that penis exercises such as jelqing actually improve penis length and girth. The majority of claims on penis stretching are purely anecdotal.
Jelqing involves manually stretching the flaccid penis with a repetitive hand-over-hand motion to encourage more blood flow at the head. By doing this, individuals claim that it can extend the size of the penis.
At present, there is no scientific data that supports this claim. While it may seem like a harmless practice, you may run the risk of irritation, pain, and discomfort.
Pills, Ointments, And Medication - Not Scientifically Proven
The availability of size-enhancing pills, herbal “organic” concoctions, miracle ointments, and lotions that claim to promote penile length can stretch over miles (pun intended).
However, these are far riskier, especially ones that are illegally sold and are not government-approved. There are several health risks that come with taking these “enhancing” supplements such as nausea and chronic pain.
Weights - Plausible But Unlikely
Perhaps considered as the oldest size enhancing procedure, several men believe that hanging weights at the tip or the head of the penis can extend its length. Although it may likely increase the flaccid length of the penis, considering weights are hung continuously over a long period; it does not improve its girth or thickness. And who would want to have something tied to their willies for eight hours or more every day?
Surgery - Proven But Risky
Various surgical procedures can be performed to improve the length and girth of the penis. This generally involves two types of surgeries.
To make the penis appear longer, the suspensory ligament which connects the penis to the pelvis is cut (open). This, in turn, extends the part of the shaft that’s hidden from the body. To improve the girth, implants can be inserted into the shaft via surgery.
Non-Invasive Fillers - Proven And Risk-Free
There’s a non-invasive penis enlargement procedure popular in different aesthetic clinics across the UK. It involves the use of temporary dermal fillers to increase the length of the flaccid penis and at the same time improve its girth or thickness as well.
Hyaluronic acid fillers are commonly used since the substance is safe and easily dissolves inside the body. As these derma fillers are temporary, its effects usually last for six to eight months and can even go as long as a year.
Another non-invasive method is through fat grafting. This entails the harvesting of fat at a specific part of the body, it is then purified and used as a “natural filler”.
Consult An Expert
If you’re considering having a penis enlargement procedure, it is critical to consult an expert before proceeding. Get yourself educated about any risk factors, allergies, or sensitivities. You can always speak to our experts at Medicci Aesthetics.
