Current Urology Reports, 06/26/2012
Shaeer O et al. – Penile augmentation is an ongoing debate. Emerging evidence proves a relationship between dissatisfaction with penile size and sexual dysfunction. Despite a widespread belief of the value of penile size, and the prevalent complaint of a “small penis,” penile augmentation still stands short of addressing the demand. This report highlights the studies added to medical literature on penile augmentation in 2011–2012, including data on normal penile dimensions and the expected dimensions for a normal person, determination of the prevalence of the dissatisfaction with penile size, its effect on erectile function, female partner’s opinion of the value of penile size, as well as further experience with augmentation techniques.
