Alistair took out a £5,000 loan to add to £3,000 of savings, and paid to go under the knife. (Surgery is difficult to obtain on the NHS, though it can be offered for psychological reasons, or to correct a true micropenis.) “It was the worst thing I’ve ever done,” he says. “The pain afterwards… I couldn’t sit, I couldn’t stand. It was beyond anything they told me to expect. The wound got infected, and when they gave me antibiotics, it kept seeping pus. The scarring has barely faded even now.” He says the fat injection became lumpy, while his erection no longer stands straight. “It just doesn’t look right. It’s deformed.”
William O’Connor, a 38-year-old mechanic from Northampton, is one of his satisfied customers – and it’s easy to understand why. Think of a large can of aerosol deodorant and you have, roughly enough, his new dimensions. “There was one woman who took one look at it and just went, ‘That thing is coming nowhere near me,’” he says. “But mostly it goes down very well. I’ve seen a lot of eyes light up.”
Of course, even if you feel like you could use a boost in the size department, there’s a good chance your penis is actually average. The average erect penis length for most men ranges between 5-6.5 inches, while the average flaccid length ranges between 1-4 inches . Although studies haven’t found a relationship between penis size and race, the evidence does show that normal stretched penile length varies between ethnic groups, with East Asians having a slightly shorter stretched penile length compared to African-American and Caucasian ethnic groups .
Salvini moonlights as a pastor and views Matters of Size as a Christian brotherhood — it’s tribal, he says. Men call each other “brother,” which makes it feel like a family rather than a business. The most common issue, he says, is men who were mocked about the size of their dick. “That’s 80 percent of it,” he says. “A lot of women are vindictive and know exactly what to shoot for to hurt a man. If you have a six-inch dick, she’s gonna say it’s eight inches and stroke your ego when she falls in love with you. But when the relationship ends and she suddenly hates you, she’ll deduct two inches and go around saying you have a four-inch nubby cock. That’s just the way it is.”
Androgen Deprivation Therapy – Androgen deprivation therapy is used to eliminate as much testosterone as possible in the body to treat prostate cancer. This may be done with GnRH or LHRH agonists, which reduce the amount of testosterone in the body or with anti-androgens, which block the use of testosterone by cancer cells. Unfortunately, the reduction of testosterone can cause genital shrinkage . While other treatments are available if you’re worried about shrinkage, it’s important to weigh the pros and cons with your medical professional when making a decision.
As previously noted, gaining weight can result in the penis appearing shorter because the base becomes buried in fat. Liposuction may be used to reduce the pubic fat pad to make the penis appear larger . Studies show that suprapubic liposuction is very safe and successful with minor or no complications when it is performed meticulously, and long with improving associated esthetic concerns, it may help improve self-esteem as well .
