What is Girth?

Girth is the width of the penis measured by circumference. The average girth of a non-erect penis is 3.67 inches in circumference. The average girth of an erect penis is 4.49 inches in circumference. In addition, the average length of a non-erect penis is 3.61 inches and the average length of an erect penis is 5.21 inches.

Is there a Long Wait Period Between the Consultation and the Procedure?

No, in fact, most patients have the procedure done on the same day as the consultation.

How is the Procedure Performed?

Dr. Wierschem is a board certified Urologist with over 25 years’ experience of surgical training in male genitalia. He has specialized training in penile girth enhancement which he has been performing for several years.


Local anesthesia is used to anesthetize the area under the skin. The filler will then be injected into the tissues around the shaft of the penis using a specialized non-traumatic cannula which specifically avoids damage to tissue and blood vessels. The penis will be massaged to smooth out the filler. The entire procedure will take approximately 15 – 30 minutes.


Dr. Wierschem does NOT recommend treatment of the penile head (or glans). It can result in abnormal appearance, discomfort and typically does not last more than a few months.  Please refer to the before and after picture section to see a photograph of a necrotic penile glans that was treated with hyaluronic acid at another facility.  He subsequently came to Dr. Wierschem for his expertise in penile surgery who treated him successfully as you can see in the photo.

What Should I Expect After the Procedure?

You will notice an enlarged penis immediately after the procedure. You can expect 0.5 – 1 inch of width improvement after your initial treatment. This new width will be present when your penis is erect as well as when it is not erect. The improved width lasts over 2 years in most patients. The filler that is placed looks and feels natural. Your partner will likely not be able to tell you have had this done. Some patients may need a “touch-up” procedure and many more desire to have more filler placed for an even larger penis.

Is There Anything I Need to do After the Procedure?

We recommend Neosporin the sides of the penis twice a day for the first 3 days. We also recommend no intercourse for 7 days. Dr. Wierschem will instruct you after the procedure on how to massage and mold your penis to create a smooth appearance if needed.

Will This Effect My Partner?

Your partner will be very impressed with you after the procedure as your looks and feels completely natural while being much larger.


In fact, your partners will likely have a more fulfilling sexual experience. Female partners have noticed a much more satisfying sexual experience as their tissues become looser over time and the increased girth of the male partner drastically improves sensation during intercourse.

Will This Also Increase the Length of My Penis?

Girth enhancement will not increase penile length. There are a few things you can use to create some length including a vacuum device and traction device. Dr. Wierschem can discuss these with you at the time of your consultation. There are some doctors that provide a surgical means for penile lengthening however, this is ill advised. Most of these procedures result in significant complications, poor outcomes and unhappy patients. Remember, over 90% of male partners prefer increased penile girth over length!

Can I Have Girth Enhancement if I am not Circumcised, Have a Penile Implant, or Peyronie's Disease?

Yes, in fact, Dr. Wierschem has treated many men like this with excellent results. Men with indentations of their penile tissue from Peyronie’s disease or other penile injuries look entirely normal after girth enhancement in these areas.

How Many Girth Enhancement Procedures has Dr. Wierschem Performed?

Dr. Wierschem was the first doctor in Texas and the Southwest to offer penile girth enhancement procedures and has been doing so for over 6 years. He is by far the most experienced doctor in the area and one of the most experienced in the country and performs several hundred procedures every year.

Will I Look Bigger When I am not Erect?

Absolutely, you will! In fact, many patients have had this procedure done for this reason alone.

Does it hurt?

Most patients experience little to no discomfort. Dr. Wierschem applies a lidocaine (numbing) cream to the tissue prior to the procedure.  The filler that is injected also has lidocaine within it so that the procedure is essentially painless.

Will this effect my erections or sensation?

Dr. Wierschem has never had a patient describe erectile dysfunction or sensation loss after this procedure. Although complications are possible, research has shown that they occur in less than 0.006% of patients. Most patients and their partners notice improvement in their sensation from the increased friction during intercourse.

What if I Live Outside of the Dallas Area?

Dr. Wierschem has treated many patients from across Texas as well as outside of the state. Many drive hundreds of miles just for this procedure. We provide transportation to and from the airport to our clinic at no cost to our patients. That way you will not need to burden the cost of a rental car.
