What It’s REALLY Like to Get a Penis Enhancement
Even if you don’t have a penis, it’s easy to feel titillated at the thought of penis filler. Yes, it’s a real thing used to increase girth. And according to some, it’s life-changing. We spoke to one anonymous man who subjected his penis to the procedure. Read on for the hard facts, as told to POPSUGAR.
I have always wanted to have a more appealing penis. Most of my life, my penis was considered average, maybe slightly above average, but only when I was erect. So somewhere along the line, I started to think: “OK, how do I go about getting that?”
I have several female friends who have gone through breast augmentation. I don’t know what it’s like to be a woman, but I am sure they face pressure to look like the perfectly styled, airbrushed images of femininity you see in magazines. I think we’ve evolved so that we talk about that problem today.
In my opinion, we don’t really do the same for men. How your penis looks — its size, girth, whether it’s circumcised or not — is supposed to portray a man’s virility. Men look at theirs and wonder, “Am I masculine or not? Is it big enough? Will it perform?” I would say the porn industry most often shows well-endowed men, so I think that also influences how certain people view penis size.
I’ve been happily partnered for more than 13 years. When I was first considering this procedure, I asked my partner, “I’d like to be bigger. Are you cool with that?” He responded, “Sure. That’s perfectly fine. It works great, but if that’s what you want, let’s talk about what you have in mind.” I think if you want to do something from an aesthetic perspective, you should do it for your own reasons. I don’t think it’s right for someone to undergo a procedure like this because a significant other pressures them to.
I began Google searching for different options. There are essentially three ways to add girth. Two of the options involve surgical procedures, and one of those specifically uses cadaver tissues. The doctor actually takes dead tissue and puts it into the internal cavity between your penile duct’s fascia and your skin. If you Google it, it looks pretty horrific. The other way involves cutting the pubic ligament open. The pubic ligament is a part of the organ that’s helpful for achieving an erection, so I didn’t want to harm that. I started thinking: my penis is my friend. It’s been my friend for a very long time, and I want to keep being friends with it going forward. So I began looking at filler, because it sounded less invasive.
There are generally two kinds of filler. One is much more permanent, and it involves a dermal filler that has microspheres: tiny plastic spheres that stay in the area after the filler is absorbed. That means you have to get plastic embedded into your skin, so any irregularity, deformity, or shifting that could be a side effect of that has to be addressed with further surgery. I wasn’t comfortable with the safety of that.
