Penuma surgery is a relatively new procedure that involves the insertion of a silicone implant into the penis to increase its length and girth. There is limited data on the long-term effects of Penuma surgery, but some studies have shown that it can lead to changes in sensation or sensitivity of the penis.
One study published in the Journal of Sexual Medicine found that men who underwent Penuma surgery reported a decrease in penile sensitivity in the first few months after surgery. However, the sensitivity gradually improved over time, and by one year after surgery, the men reported no significant difference in sensitivity compared to before surgery.
Another study, published in the journal Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery, found that men who underwent Penuma surgery reported a decrease in penile sensation immediately after surgery. However, the sensation gradually improved over time, and by six months after surgery, the men reported no significant difference in sensation compared to before surgery.
It is important to note that these studies are small and observational, so they cannot definitively say whether Penuma surgery can lead to changes in sensation or sensitivity of the penis. More research is needed to determine the long-term effects of this procedure.
Penuma surgery can potentially lead to changes in sensation or sensitivity of the penis, although the extent of these changes can vary among individuals. Sensation changes might be influenced by factors such as the surgical technique, the size of the implant, individual healing responses, and the anatomy of the patient.
Here are a few points to consider:
- Temporary Changes: After any surgical procedure, it’s common to experience temporary changes in sensation due to swelling, healing, and nerve responses. Sensation often improves as the healing process progresses.
- Implant Placement: The implant used in Penuma surgery is positioned under the skin of the penis. While the implant itself is not designed to directly interfere with nerve function, individual variations in nerve distribution could potentially impact sensation.
- Nerve Trauma: Surgical procedures can potentially impact nerves in the surgical area. While surgeons take care to minimize trauma to nerves, there is always a risk of temporary or permanent changes in sensation.
- Long-Term Changes: Some individuals might report long-term changes in sensitivity after Penuma surgery. These changes could include increased or decreased sensitivity, or altered sensations during sexual activity.
- Realistic Expectations: Having realistic expectations about the potential impact on sensation is important. While some individuals might experience changes, others might not notice significant differences.
