Dr Miriam Stoppard: Penis extensions too often result in failure

The phrase “size matters”, in the minds of both men and women, really means penis size, and some men in pursuit of improving their length have gone in for penis extensions .

The sad news is they don’t work. So don’t bother.

These are the depressing findings published in the Sexual Medicine Reviews journal by Gordon Muir, a urologist at King’s College Hospital, London, and his colleagues.

“These procedures should almost never be done,” said Muir.

“They can cost up to £30,000, or even £40,000, and often the man ends up with a penis that is disfigured, and there is no more than a 20% satisfaction rate.”

A review of 17 studies, which looked at 21 types of procedure in Britain and abroad, both surgical and non-surgical, and performed on 1,192 men, found penis enlargement was “ineffective and risky”.

Furthermore, it leaves many men physically or psychologically scarred.

Muir believes the various types of penis enlargements should almost never be carried out and that men were being exploited by “charlatans”.
