How to Get More Girth: Exploring Penile Girth Enhancement Options 

Many men have questions about penis size, and a specific aspect that can be of concern is penile girth, the thickness of the erect penis. While girth can play a role in sexual satisfaction for both partners, it’s important to remember that a healthy sex life is about much more than measurements.

This focus on well-being is key. The good news is that there are ways to address concerns about girth, but it’s important to explore these options with a healthcare professional. Here, we’ll delve into the world of penile girth enhancement, a distinct concept from penile lengthening, and explore some of the available approaches.

Understanding Girth Size: What’s Normal?

Let’s talk numbers. When it comes to penile girth in an erect state, the average falls somewhere between 4.6 and 4.9 inches (11.6 – 12.5 cm). It’s important to remember that size varies naturally, and a healthy girth can fall outside this range. However, if you have significant concerns that extend beyond this range or are impacting your sexual function, consulting a urologist is crucial.

A urologist can assess your individual situation and address any underlying medical conditions. One potential factor to consider is Peyronie’s disease. This condition involves the formation of scar tissue in the penis, which can cause pain, curvature and sometimes a decrease in girth during erection. Early diagnosis and treatment by a urologist are essential for managing Peyronie’s disease and its impact on sexual health.

Beyond the Ruler: Perception vs. Reality

There’s more to girth than meets the eye, or rather, the ruler. Erection quality, specifically blood flow to the penis, can significantly impact perceived girth. A strong erection leads to a fuller appearance, while inadequate blood flow can result in a decrease in perceived size.

It’s also important to acknowledge the role of psychology. Societal expectations and comparisons can fuel anxieties about penis size, even when within the normal range. These concerns can be addressed through open communication with a partner and potentially with a therapist specializing in sexual health.

Exploring Options for a Fulfilling Sex Life: Non-Surgical and Surgical Approaches to Penis Enlargement

There are various approaches to consider when exploring penile girth enlargement. Here, we’ll break them down into non-surgical and surgical methods.

Non-Surgical Methods

  • Healthy Habits for Enhanced Sexual Health: Maintaining a healthy lifestyle can have a positive impact on your entire body, including your sexual performance. Eating a balanced diet rich in fruits, vegetables and whole grains can improve blood flow throughout the body, potentially leading to firmer erections and a fuller appearance. Regular exercise also plays a role, as it can improve circulation and overall well-being.
  • Supplements with a Side of Caution: While some supplements advertise themselves as girth enhancers, their effectiveness is largely unsubstantiated by scientific evidence. In some cases, they may even pose health risks. It’s important to consult with a doctor before taking any supplements, especially if you have any underlying health conditions.
  • Kegel Exercises: Kegel exercises, well-known for strengthening the pelvic floor muscles, can also benefit sexual function. These exercises improve blood flow to the genital area, which can lead to firmer erections and potentially a perception of increased girth.
  • Dermal Fillers: Dermal fillers, often containing hyaluronic acid, are a minimally invasive option for penile girth augmentation. A urologist injects the filler into the shaft of the penis to increase girth. These fillers are temporary, typically lasting between 6 to 18 months. 

Surgical Procedures

  • Silicone Implants: Silicone implants were once used for girth increase, but due to a higher risk of complications such as infection and migration of the implant, they are rarely used today.
  • Phalloplasty: It’s important to clarify that phalloplasty is a surgical procedure used for reconstruction, not enlargement, of the penis. This procedure is typically performed on individuals with birth defects or injuries to the penis.
  • Penile Implants: Penile implant surgery is a treatment option for erectile dysfunction, not primarily for girth enhancement. While implants may create the appearance of increased size when erect, their main purpose is to address erectile dysfunction and improve sexual function.

UroFill: A Safe and Effective Option for Male Enhancement

Dr. Wierschem prioritizes patient safety and satisfaction. He believes UroFill offers a safe, effective and long-lasting solution for men seeking a modest increase in penile girth.
