Many men are wondering the same thing about the length of their penis. Is it normal or not? Is it too big or too small? In most cases, this question can be the source of insecurity and can cause many problems for these men.
As a result, some men who are anxious about this issue are turning to cosmetic surgery to increase the size of their penis. Let’s take a look at the male genitalia and the reasons why men opt for a penoplasty.
Penis size: what is it?
The penis and testicles form the male genital organs. It enables sexual intercourse but also urination in mammals, particularly humans. The man’s penis is made up of three different layers:
- Two cavernous masses
- The spongy mass.
The glans, surrounded by the foreskin, is actually the distal end of the spongy mass. The foreskin is a fold of skin that can be pulled back to show the glans. It is attached under the glans by a fold of skin called the frenulum.
The urethra crosses the spongy mass and is the final part of the urinary tract. And at the end of the glans is the urethral meatus, the entrance of the urethra. The urethra is used for both ejaculation and urination. The human penis does not contain any bones, in contrast to other mammals. Nevertheless, it becomes engorged with blood during an erection, which enables sexual intercourse.
The size of a man's penis varies from one person to the next but also for the same person. Generally, the penis is measured from the join between the pubis and the upper side of the penis to the glans. On average, it measures 10 cm when flaccid and 13.5 cm when erect.
Penis size: Why?
In certain cases, men may not be satisfied with the size of their penis. That said, the perception of size may vary between men. However, it is important to note that a micropenis can only be detected during adulthood. Indeed, the penis only measures 4 cm at birth and grows throughout the person’s life up until adulthood. When erect, a micropenis only measures 7 cm.
If you are a man with a penis that is deemed to be too small or underdeveloped, it can be the source of much insecurity and can become a real inhibition, especially when it comes to undressing.
How can you increase the size of your penis?
As a result, men who feel insecure about their penis size undergo real suffering and may turn to cosmetic surgery to lengthen or thicken their penis thus, phalloplasty can help men feel good again.
However, it is important that the man’s expectations for this procedure are realistic. Even though most of the men who use this intervention have a normal penis, a penoplasty can be performed so that they can regain their psychological well-being and say goodbye to their complexes.
