Do I Need the Procedure of Penis Enlargement

What are your thoughts on penis enlargement?

In case you’re wondering, penis enlargement in Canada is something that many people have questions about, and for some, worrying too much about penis size can harm their mental and physical health.

Let’s Talk About Penis Enlargement

We’ll discuss the serious stuff today, and we’ll also answer the questions we get asked most frequently:

  • Is there a penis enlargement exercise that works?
  • Are there any natural penis enlargement methods?
  • Are there any side effects of penis enlargement?

You may frequently compare your penis size to others, or perhaps you’re concerned there’s a defect with your penis. There’s a medical name for when this issue affects how you think and feel.

Before You Look for Penis Enlargement in Canada

It’s essential to be aware of penile dysmorphic disorder (PDD), a more specific type of body dysmorphic disorder (BDD) where a person thinks his penis is too small while believing other people have much larger penises.

This mental health issue is expected but not based on reality. When it comes to the penis, there is an average size, and most people fall into this typical range.

What’s the Normal Penis Size?

Some people are concerned about the size or length of their non-erect penis, so knowing that size is accurately measured when the penis is erect can be a relief. 

That means an erect penis that measures 5 inches (13 cm) or more during an erection is normal-sized. However, there is a rare medical condition called micropenis, where a person’s penis reaches 3 inches (approximately 7.5 cm) or less when erect.


Let’s discuss this more and why penis enlargement (penile augmentation) may be something to consider.

Main Reasons to Consider Penile Augmentation

A mental health issue can make people think they need penis enlargement, but there are medical or physical reasons behind an abnormally sized penis. Here are the main physical problems.

Physical Reasons for a Smaller Penis Size

There are physical or medical issues for why a penis looks or measures smaller. Here are the most common biological or medical reasons why.


This rare condition generally stems from a person’s abnormal development before birth. In addition, other genetic issues, such as a pituitary disorder, can affect a person’s sperm count and decrease their ability to conceive. 

Peyronie’s Disease

This medical condition occurs when a person’s penis develops an abnormal curvature caused by fibrosis in the tissues of the penis that make the penis bend, looking shorter and narrower. Erectile dysfunction (ED) and painful erections are often present too. 

Prostate Cancer Surgery

People who undergo a radical prostatectomy due to cancer (removing their whole prostate and the surrounding tissues) may be affected by a reduced penis size (on average, 16% smaller).

Buried Penis

A buried penis happens in boys who are obese before puberty and can appear to have a buried penis (excess fat around the pelvis concealing a normal-sized penis). Many young men outgrow this condition.

Treatment Options for Physically Smaller Penises

Surgery can be an effective treatment depending on how severe the issue is. 

The most important thing to know is that each surgical technique currently used in Canada has benefits and risks, and you should always consult with a specialist in men’s sexual health.

Suspensory Ligament Surgery

This surgery cuts the ligament attached to the pubic bone and grafts skin from the abdomen onto the shaft of the penis. It makes more of the penis hang down, so it looks longer, but the actual length of the penis remains the same.

The risks of this procedure include less support for the penis and an increased chance of sexual injuries. The ligament can also grow back naturally, so the penis looks shorter again.

Fat Injections

This surgical procedure claims to make a penis look thicker by injecting fat from another body part into the penis shaft. Still, the results may disappoint because fat injections can be uneven or even absorbed back into the body. 

Tissue Grafting

This technique claims to increase penis length or width, similar to fat injections because it takes an entire piece of fat layer and skin from elsewhere on the body and sews it directly on the shaft. Risks include infection and scarring that further deforms the penis.  

Penis Implants 

Any current procedure called a penis implant will claim to make the penis look thicker, but the risks may include scarring or shortening of the penis or causing the penis to curve.

Do We Recommend Penis Enlargement Surgery?

As qualified and experienced men’s sexual health specialists, we may consider penis enlargement surgery as the best treatment option for people with a genetic defect or a current severe injury or to address side effects from prostate surgery.

If a person wants penile augmentation for cosmetic reasons, it’s crucial to understand that the current risks of physical harm to the penis outweigh any unproven or inaccurate claims.

But that doesn’t mean you should just give up! 

Natural Penis Enlargement Methods

Natural penis enlargement

You can get your mojo back with non-surgical procedures that are an effective treatment option with little to no risks. Here are the real benefits of two natural penis enlargement methods.

Hormone Replacement Therapy (HRT)

HRT is a non-surgical method to boost low testosterone levels (T levels) back to normal within the body. HRT can benefit people with micropenis, although the best results have been seen in boys before puberty.


The focus of injectables as a natural penis enlargement method is on strengthening and straightening the penis for longer and stronger erections.  

Injectables can boost the healing and regeneration of scar tissues within the penis, improving sensations during sex and maximizing the benefits of other sexual therapies.

Penis Enlargement Exercise

One of our favourite sayings is, “the good things are hard.” When it comes to penis enlargement, there is a penis enlargement exercise called jelqing that can help strengthen the penis during an erection.

Jelqing involves pulling on your non-erect penis continuously with the forefinger and thumb. When this exercise is done correctly and diligently, it may stimulate blood flow into the penis and make the erect penis look longer and stronger.

It’s important to note that jelqing doesn’t permanently increase penis size, and this penis enlargement exercise has risks, including pain and fibrosis, that could cause the penis to shorten.

Penis Enlargement Products

Many people want more information on penis enlargement products. While some products exist for valid medical use, they don’t permanently change penis size.

Traction Devices

A penis traction device is an extending frame that can stretch the non-erect penile tissue enough to increase penis size temporarily. Still, the safety and effectiveness of these devices have yet to be proven, so we can’t recommend their use.


Natural supplements containing ingredients like L-arginine can increase nitric oxide levels in the blood. That benefits longer, stronger erections because nitric oxide can improve blood circulation within the penis, but it doesn’t make the penis bigger.

Topical Treatments

Any oil, cream, or lotion for direct application on the penis often includes hormones or over-the-counter medications that alter blood flow to the penis. Please speak to your doctor or a men’s health specialist about the benefits versus risks of any topical treatment.

Penile Rings

While there is no evidence that a wearable device can lengthen the penis, the Xialla penile ring is clinically proven to treat ED. It is also beneficial in promoting longer, stronger erections.

Vacuums and Pumps

When prescribed by a men’s health specialist, the safe usage of a penis pump can renew blood vessels within the groin area and improve blood flow to the penis. Penis pumps are an effective treatment for better erections, although the penis doesn’t physically grow bigger.

Side Effects of Penis Enlargement Products

Side effects of penis enlargement products

Penis enlargement products exist to help you get longer, stronger erections, but there is no current evidence that any product will make the penis bigger. 

There are also side effects of penis enlargement products to be aware of and avoid. Here are the side effects to know about:

  • Some supplements contain ingredients harmful to people with heart disease.
  • In addition, some lotions, creams, and oils can cause skin irritations or allergic reactions.
  • Improper use of an unprescribed penis pump may injure the penis and impair an erection, especially when the suction is too powerful or the device is worn too long.
  • Penis enlargement products can be expensive with few benefits or false claims.
