Sex after Penoplasty: What to Expect
Penoplasty has emerged as one of the most popular cosmetic surgical procedures among men. It appeals to those who wish to get a larger penis by increasing its length and girth. Also known as penis enlargement surgery, this procedure is very common, but most men are ashamed to talk about it and ask the right questions.
Whether you’re preparing for surgery or you’ve just had it done, you might wonder what your sex life will look like from now on. This depends largely on your recovery time. In general, patients report greater sexual satisfaction and increased self-confidence after penoplasty.
What Is Penoplasty?
More and more men are looking to improve their physical appearance and perform better in bed through penile enhancement. This procedure involves inserting platelet-rich plasma mixed with your own body fat into the penis to increase its girth, and the excision of the pubic ligament to increase the length.
According to experts, this type of cosmetic surgery is now as safe as breast augmentation, with a low chance of complications and a high success rate.
Penis lengthening surgery can add up to 4 centimetres to your penis in a flaccid state. With penis girth surgery, you can expect to see an increase in circumference of 1.4 to 4 centimetres (generally a 30% increase of your natural girth). These improvements will boost your confidence and body image, which will reflect positively on your sex life.
Most men who undergo this procedure want to feel good naked in front of their partners. Even those with penises within the normal range may not feel confident enough. This can affect their sexual experiences and romantic relationships. Penoplasty helps eliminate these insecurities and enhance your self-esteem.
How Does Penoplasty Influence Your Sex Life?
Penoplasty doesn’t directly influence your sex life, but it can improve it by restoring your confidence and self-esteem. Not thinking about your penis size will make you more focused on your partner and will make you feel better around women. Many patients report that removing this block from their mind has made them feel less self-conscious during sex and has improved their sex life dramatically.
The procedure is moderately painful for the first day, but the discomfort goes away by itself as you recover. The doctor will prescribe painkillers and anti-erection tablets that you will need to take for up to one week after surgery. These medications help distribute the fat in the tissues surrounding your penis and accelerate healing.
Most patients can resume their sexual activities one month after surgery. If you have intercourse too soon, it may damage the fat graft. Also, it’s recommended to avoid heavy lifting and manual labour in the first few weeks.
Once you recover, your penis will function normally. It will have more thickness or girth, and may hang slightly lower when soft. You might also notice changes in the angle of the erection, which are due to its increased weight.
Considering that up to 2,000 penoplasty interventions take place each year in the UK alone, it’s safe to say that most patients are happy with the results and recommend this surgery. It might be exactly what you need to enjoy a better sex life and feel more confident in your own skin.
