Penis Enlargement Surgery FAQs

Is penile enlargement surgery effective?

This is the number one question that anyone considering penis enlargement surgery asks. Well, it’s quite reasonable for someone to wonder before making that important appointment with a renowned surgeon. Apparently, whether or not penis surgery is effective is dependent on some factors.

For starters, penis enlargement is effective if you are expecting to gain not more than two inches of your penis. If your expectations are higher than this, you will not find the surgery effective. Supposing you are okay with one or two inches more, your choice of a penis enlargement surgeon will significantly impact the end results. This explains why you must find a highly reputable and experienced surgeon. Choose someone who has performed several successful penis surgeries. It is vital that you dedicate enough time to searching the most appropriate surgeon.

Is penis enlargement surgery painful

Well, not during the actual operation. Since you will be put under anaesthesia, you will not feel pain during the procedure. However, a few hours after the surgery, and all the way to recovery, you will have to endure some pain. The level of pain usually varies from one person to another. I guess it just has to do with how different individuals are tolerant to pain. No need to worry, though; your surgeon will recommend effective pain relievers to help you manage the pain during recovery.

How soon after penis surgery should I resume my normal life?

This is dependent on the type of surgery that has been performed on you. Your doctor is the best person to advise you on this issue. Within a week after surgery, you may go back to work. However, it isn’t advisable for you to engage in strenuous activities or sports, until after six to eight weeks. On average, however, you may go back to your swimming routine two or three weeks after the surgery. As far as taking that hot shower is concerned, you may have to wait for three or four days. The area operated on shouldn’t be exposed to water. During the four days after the operation, use a sponge to clean your body.

What are some of the risks associated with penis enlargement surgery?

It is important to note that there isn’t a surgery that is 100 percent safer. Going under the knife to have your penis enlarged exposes you to a range of possible complications. They include bruising and bleeding, scarring, the formation of fluid under the penis skin and lumping. Other severe risks include difficulties in breathing or thrombosis (blood clots). Should you notice any of these complications, it is advisable that you contact your doctor immediately.

What are some of the post- surgeries activities?

Firstly, daily penis massage is advisable to avoid possible lumping and fluid formation under the penis skin. Secondly, you should take sufficient rest for a minimum of one week. Thirdly, smoking and drinking should be avoided a few weeks after the surgery as they have an adverse interference on the recovery process. You are safer keeping them at bay for the time being. Lastly, take your pain medication as advised by your surgeon. It will go a long way in helping you manage your pain- if not, the pain can be quite traumatising.
