The penis can be long but thin, however thickness is often associated with the length.
There are several techniques to thicken the penis: injecting biological substances permanent mesh, absorbable substances or fat grafts. If a patient wants to try how it would be a thicker penis, we advise injecting hyaluronic acid under the skin of the penis, which will be reabsorbed within a few months. If, however, you want a permanent thickness, our advice is to inject your own fatty tissue from the abdomen or flanks or even better, place a biological skin mesh.
All procedures are performed under local anesthesia and on an outpatient basis.
Thickening with own fat involves removing fat from the abdomen or flanks using very fine cannulas that leave no sign or stiches and place the fatty tissue (previously filtered, decanted and centrifuged) under the skin of the penis. A good choice for long but narrow penis. If it is a short or retractable penis we advise to use biologic mesh.
Thickening with biologic mesh consists on placing a collagen membrane that is integrated, behaving like a biodynamic tissue, leaving an increase of the thickness completely homogenous and hard. We best advise the mesh over own fat although each patient should be assessed separately. Both techniques have their good indications.
