Penile enlargement surgery (or phalloplasty) is a procedure to enhance the size of the penis in length, width or both. Surgery is the only permanent option for penis enlargement. According to the general information site the Plastic Surgery Portal, procedure costs vary widely. However, to date, there is no complete statistical information available to consumers. Personal caution, therefore, is necessary in choosing the right provider and acceptable cost.
In a penis-lengthening procedure, the ligaments that hold the penis in place are cut, then weights are used to increase the penis length. In penis-widening surgery, fat cells from the stomach area are withdrawn and transplanted to the penis.
Why Do Phalloplasty Costs Vary?
Penile enlargement surgery is complicated and risky, and therefore few surgeons are qualified and experienced enough to perform the surgery, limiting choice and driving high costs. Post-surgery costs can vary depending on the recovery time of the patient and any complications. In addition to surgeon costs, other expenses include anesthetic provider costs, the potential need for follow-up surgery and the location and charges of the surgical center.
