other men usually choose one procedure, or both?
percent of our patients opt for both procedures.
can I return to work?
is performed on an outpatient basis. The majority of our patients feel
ready to return to non-physical work within a few days. Those whose
jobs involve physical labor generally require more time, depending on
the nature of their work.
there any discomfort? When can I return to sexual activity?
varies from person to person. Most require medication to relieve discomfort
for the first week to 10 days. It usually takes two to three weeks before
aerobic excercise is comfortable. Sexual activity can be resumed in
30 days; however, it takes three to six months to achieve maximum erection
length gained from the elongation procedure.
are the chances of complications? What kind?
percent of the procedures we've performed were completed without incident
or complications. However, there are risks that accompany any type of
surgery--bleeding or infection, for example. The lengthening process
can alter the angle of erection to some degree, but such chances are
usually minor. There have also been occasions where fat transferred
to the penis has been reabsorbed by the body, resulting in a loss in
circumference gain. These losses can easily be corrected with a relatively
minor follow-up procedure.
there other surgical procedures that can be done during my procedure?
circumcision, vasectomy, testicular enhancement or any other basic cosmetic
surgery can also be performed during penis enlargement.
surgery make me a better lover?
main sex organ is your brain; no one can predict how an individual will
react after surgery. Nevertheless, we've found that most men feel better
about themselves after the procedure, and this feeling does affect behavior.
there be a scar or other signs that I had the procedure done?
surgery does involve an incision and leaves a visible scar, the entrance
is made in the pubic hair region. When the hair grows back in about
four weeks, the scar is almost impossible to detect in most cases.
are the risks of the fat cells being reabsorbed?
seen an average of 5 to 15 percent reabsorbtion of fat cells. We can
adjust for this by enlarging the shaft slightly beyond your desired
size, knowing that the shaft may decrease to the size you requested
over a period of a few months. Our procedure also includes a cell cleansing
and separation process prior to reintroduction which helps minimize
there a risk of impotence or loss of sensitivity?
proceedures do not interfere with any of the normal physiologic functions
of the penis. In some cases there may be a temporary loss of sensitivity
in the flap area during the healing process, where the skin is pulled
to cover the lenghened penis.
heard that some doctor's use Dermal Graft Augmentation. What is it?
Graft Augmentation is an experimental augmentation technique where whole
fat strips are placed in the penile shaft. The theory is that these
strips will not be reabsorbed as easily as uncleaned fat cells. We feel
strongly that this procedure is ineffective and can result in numbness
and uncorrectable scarring when the fat strips are reabsorbed. Also,
this procedure requires three to six hours of surgery, which means there
are the attendant risks that come from being under anesthesia for long
periods of time.
about other techniques?
surgeon's technique and experience are of the utmost importance. CSI
doctors spent several years perfecting the techniques he now uses over
the course of 1,000 operations. There are few--if any--physicians whose
experience in this type of surgery comes close to equaling that of the
team at Cosmetic Surgery International. Other techniques have not proven
as consistent or, more importantly, successful.
I've had surgery performed by another doctor and didn't get results,
can you do the procedure again? What are my chances for improvement?
is a common problem. Patients often come to us for a "touch-up" necessitated
by another physician's mistakes. Of course, the best way to maximize
your results is to have the surgery performed only once. If you've had
a previous operation, we require an extensive physical to determine
whether or not a second surgery would be of benefit. Generally speaking,
we have been able to improve on previous results, but this varies depending
on individual circumstances.
