“Size don’t matter” is a common phrase that people, men in particular. However, as much as they say that, they don’t mean it most times, especially those overly egoistic and insecure types. According to studies, an average penis length is 7.5cm to 10cm when it is flaccid and 12.5 to 17.5cm when erected. Having a small penis may not only affect the self-confidence. When the penis is shorter than 7.6cm during an erection, it is when there is a problem of micropenis.
Micropenis is usually detected at a very young age. It is considered as an abnormality of the genitals and the hormone levels. Micropenis is caused by the inability to produce testosterone or converting it to its active form. Hence, for micropenis treatment, it is usually done with testosterone replacement.
Small penis (not micropenis) however, can be enlarged via surgery. Through surgery, the penis can be enlarged visually, often only over an inch.
How does penis enlargement surgery works?
One of the techniques of penis enlargement is dermal implant. It is the transfer of fat cells from other parts of the body to the penis to increase the girth and length of the penis. The head of the penis however, cannot be increased.
