Peyronie’s disease refers to an abnormal curvature of the penis that is caused by scar tissue, also called a plaque, in erectile tissue [31]. Peyronie’s disease has the ability to make your erection shrink or become deformed. Prompt treatment for the disease is important and can include treatments like vitamin E, steroids, collagenase, and verapamil. In some cases, surgical intervention is required, although conservative therapies should be exhausted before turning to surgical procedures [32]. Other studies have found that administration of these ED medications for penile fibrosis is not only safe, but these medications have anti-fibrotic properties that may relieve fibrotic plaques in localized and widespread fibrosis in penile tissue [33].

Richard, a mechanic from upstate New York, is a muscular, athletic guy. He has a loving wife who has always enjoyed their sex life. But ever since he was a young boy, Richard couldn't get over the feeling that his penis was too small. In public bathrooms, he'd use the handicapped stall. He felt embarrassed in gym locker rooms and when standing naked before his wife. "I didn't feel manly enough," he tells WebMD.

The fact is verification is sadly lacking for nearly all of the male enhancement products on the market, while in many cases, there are definite warnings against these products. Specifically, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) issued a warning against dietary supplements to enhance male sexual performance, noting many have undisclosed ingredients that may be harmful. This government agency also cautioned against penis enlargers and erection-maintaining rings in at least one public alert.


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 [18]. 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 [19].
