Many men are curious to know the same thing about the length of their penis. Is it natural or is it not? Is it too big or too small? In most cases, this issue can be a root of insecurity and can cause many problems for these men.
As a result, some men who are worried about this problem are turning to cosmetic surgery to increase the size of their penis. Let’s take a look at the male genitalia and the explanations why men opt for a penoplasty.
Penis size: what is it?
The male genital organs consist of the penis and the testicles . It allows sexual intercourse but also urination in mammals, in particular humans. The man's penis comprises three layers:
- Two cavernous masses
- The spongy mass.
The glans, enveloped by the foreskin, is actually the distal end of the spongy mass. The foreskin is a fold of skin that can be drawn back to reveal the gland. It is connected to the gland by a fold of skin called a frenulum.
The urethra crosses the spongy mass and is the last part of the urinary tract. And at the end of the glans is the urethral meatus, the entry point of the urethra. The urethra is used for ejaculation and urination. The human penis comprises no bones, as opposed to several other mammals. Even so, during an erection, it becomes engorged with blood, which allows sexual intercourse.
The size of a man's penis differs from one person to the next but also for the same person. Usually, the penis is measured from the join between the pubis and the upper side of the penis to the glans. It measures on average 10 cm when flaccid and 13.5 cm when erect.
Penis size: Why?
In certain cases, men may not be happy with the size of their penis. That said, the perception of size can differ between men. It is important to remember, however, that a micropenis can only be identified during adulthood. Indeed, the penis only measures 4 cm at birth and develops throughout the person’s life up until adulthood. When erect, a micropenis measures just 7 cm.
If you are a man with a penis that is perceived to be too small or underdeveloped, it can be a source of much insecurity and can become a real inhibition, particularly 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 experience real pain and can resort to cosmetic surgery to lengthen or thicken their penis, thus phalloplasty may make men feel good again.
That being said, it is essential 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 done so that they can recover their psychological well-being and say goodbye to their complex.
