The permanence of the results achieved through penile augmentation surgery can vary depending on the specific procedure performed and individual factors. It’s important to understand that while some results might be long-lasting, no surgical procedure can guarantee permanent changes. Here’s a general overview:
- Lengthening Procedures: Procedures aimed at increasing penile length, such as ligament release or V-Y plasty, might result in a more visible flaccid length. However, the impact on erect length tends to be limited, and the increase achieved might not be permanent.
- Girth Enhancement Procedures: Girth enhancement procedures, such as fat transfer or dermal grafts, can provide noticeable improvements in penile circumference. However, some of the transferred fat or tissue might be reabsorbed by the body over time, potentially affecting the longevity of the results.
- Implants: Penile implants, whether inflatable or semi-rigid, can provide a reliable and lasting solution for individuals with erectile dysfunction. However, they are not typically used for the primary purpose of enlargement, but rather for restoring erectile function.
- Non-Surgical Options: Non-surgical methods, such as using pumps or extenders, generally offer temporary improvements and require ongoing maintenance for any visible effects.
