Is A 5 Inch Penis Small


Penis enlargement surgery has been hyped by spam advertising. Most men expect the penis to be cm longer than is actually possible after the operation. During the operation the ligaments that attach the penis to the pubic bone are cut. This makes the penis hang down further when it is limp. The average increase in length is only about 1. The size of your erection will not be increased.

Also, because it no longer has the support of the ligaments, the erect penis will not point as high as before.

The operation can be risky, because important nerves that carry sensation can be damaged and infection or bleeding can also occur, and unsightly scarring is common. If you are considering this operation, make sure that you find a reputable surgeon look at the section on cosmetic surgery.

This may be difficult, because not many surgeons are willing to do this operation, because of the problems associated with it.
