Not all operations leave happy customers – infections and scarring are both potential side-effects (“This is the same as an operation of any kind,” Viel says). Some men report a decline in angle after the suspensory ligament is cut, but according to David Ralph, a professor of urology at UCL, “By and large, patients don’t complain about that. The operation doesn’t change the erect length at all – this is only for men who have anxiety about how they look in the changing rooms. The average increase in size is 1.3cm, less than the diameter of a 1p coin. In my clinics, I show patients one of these and ask if they still think it is worth it.

As we started to analyze these products we found that there is way too much marketing hype which is completely misleading and is causing people to buy products that not only have no effect, but can also be harmful. There are countless brands to choose from and many of them make outrageous claims about what their product can do without any legitimate studies to back it up.

Hence they think that they are below normal when actually they’re average.” (For the record, the average erect penis measures 5.6 inches, according to research published in the Journal of Sexual Medicine.)
For several reasons, many men overestimate the size of the average penis, which can lead them to feel unsatisfied with their own. There are many factors involved in sexual arousal, and penis size itself does not make a man more or less likely to become aroused or to perform sexually. However, 10 percent of men who underestimate their own penis size do experience erectile dysfunction, regardless of whether the penis is smaller or larger than average.
Penile size differs between men of different ethnic backgrounds and large studies of penis girth and length have been conducted by condom manufacturers. What many men perceive as a short penis actually falls into normal range size. Based on many published charts, scientific articles, and self reported web based surveys, 95 % of Caucasian men will fall into one of the following categories of size:
