Penis Enlargement Surgery: What are the Serious Complications
Repair of Penis Enlargement Surgery Complications performed in our clinic with Graft and Flap procedures (Bovine pericardium, Pig dermal acellular matrix grafts), PMMA and Silicone.
Penis enlargement procedures have witnessed a rise in popularity over the years, driven by societal expectations and individual desires for a better physical appearance. However, it is crucial to investigate the potential complications associated with each method in order to make informed decisions about a person’s health and well-being.
Among these procedures, the ones with the most serrious complications are Graft and Flap procedures (Bovine pericardium, Pig dermal acellular matrix grafts) and PMMA applications. These procedures, often promoted as safe surgeries with minimal risks, have led to serious complications.
In 2023, we have seen and treated dozens of men in our clinic who presented with severe scarring of the penis root, migrated material that caused cosmetic deformity, sexual dysfunction, penis shortening, crippling curvature, and decreased penis sensation.
Graft Procedures with Bovine Pericardium
1. Graft Thinning and Shrinkage:
Frequently, bovine pericardial grafts may experience shrinkage, which may affect the intended expansion results. This can cause deformations and compromise the overall success of the procedure.
2. Calcification and infection:
There is a risk that the graft material may calcify over time, causing stiffness, discomfort, or changes in appearance. This may lead to undesirable results such as shortening of the penis instead of lengthening. Complications of his surgeries include penile shortening due to fibrosis, mild curvature, and erectile dysfunction unresponsive to oral medication. Foreign material inherently carries infection risks. It increases calcification.
3. Allergic Reactions:
Rarely, individuals may develop allergic reactions to bovine-derived materials, ranging from itching and rash to more severe reactions. Allergic complications can affect patient satisfaction and well-being.
4. Wound Scar and Deformity
Poor wound appearance and healing can often be observed in V-Y plasties performed on the penis root.
Dermal Acellular Grafts
1. Risk of Infection:
Any surgical procedure inherently carries infection risks, and dermal acellular grafts are no exception. Infections can lead to serious complications that affect both the cosmetic and functional aspects of the penis.
2. Graft Rejection:
Despite efforts to remove cellular components, there is a risk that the body will recognize the graft as foreign and trigger an immune response. Graft rejection can lead to inflammation and deformations, compromising the intended outcome.
3. Scarring and Fibrosis:
Excessive scarring and fibrosis may occur, leading to an uneven or lumpy appearance. This can compromise both the cosmetic and functional aspects of the expansion, affecting overall satisfaction.
Severe decreases in penile sensitivity have a high risk of increasing over months and years.
Polymethyl-methacrylate (PMMA) Microspheres
1. Displacement of Microspheres:
There is a risk of microspheres migrating within the tissue over time. This can cause irregularities, asymmetry and discomfort, affecting both the appearance and comfort of the penis.
2. Infection and Inflammation:
As with any injection-based procedure, there is a risk of infection and inflammation. The introduction of foreign substances may trigger adverse reactions that require careful evaluation.
3. Permanent Swelling:
Some people may experience persistent swelling or allergic reactions to the injected substance. This condition can cause discomfort and affect the overall appearance and functionality of the enlarged penis.

A Safer Approach in Our Clinic
While the pursuit of penis enlargement is a personal choice, it is crucial to prioritize safety and health. In our clinic, we advocate safe surgical methods and reversible surgeries. We also use advanced techniques to minimize scarring, ensuring our patients achieve the results they want with minimal risk and complications. It is crucial to consult with qualified medical professionals before opting for any expansion procedure and make decisions with a thorough understanding and consideration of potential complications.
