The Penile Glans is also called the ‘Head of the Penis’. We prefer to use the term ‘glans’. The Glans is a vascular structure, just like the rest of the penis, and is similar to a balloon. When the Glans has blood in it (during the erect state), it expands like a balloon expands when air is placed in. When the Glans shrinks down, (when blood leaves the Glans,) it is like a balloon losing its air.
The challenge we have the enlarging the Glans is the very anatomic structure that prevents significant enlargement. It is a vascular structure with no ‘space’ under the skin to place fillers, unlike the penile shaft that has abundant space under its skin to place fillers.
Even though Glans enlargement is challenging, Glans enlargement is becoming a primary topic of concern and discussion. Most patients would like to have not only an enlarged penile shaft but also a proportionately enlarged Glans. Penile Glans enlargement has been proven to be not only a risky surgical procedure but relatively unsuccessful one using Traditional Surgical methods. Considering that enlarging the girth of the Penile Shaft without enlarging the Penile Glans may result in a ‘disproportionate’ shape or look, this has placed a limiting factor on how wide the Penile Shaft can be made, if one is concerned about asymmetry or disproportion.
Dr. Loria has performed many Penile Glans Enlargement procedures and has concluded that there are only moderate gains even after several treatments, resulting in an increase in girth size (circumference) ranging from ½ to 1 inch. The Images below demonstrate the result of 3 glans treatments and a ¾ inch gain in girth/circumference. Please note that the patient had prior fat transfer and now needed to have the glans in a more proportional balance.
Keep in mind that the Penile Glans Enlargement treatment can be performed simultaneously with the Penile Shaft Treatment, in other words, they are performed on the same treatment day if desired (and is highly recommended). It is recommended that Penile Glans treatments should be done whenever you have a Penile Shaft treatment. Try to take advantage of all opportunities to treat the Glans, because of the modest gains that result with each treatment. Keep in mind that the Penile Glans normally varies in size, and thus, to have a Penile Glans the same size or even little smaller than the Penile Shaft is not necessarily considered ‘disproportionate’. If one chooses not to have a Penile Glans and Penile Shaft treatment performed simultaneously, he may feel, after the Penile Glans is too small in comparison to the now enlarged Penile Shaft, an obligation to enlarge the Penile Glans to allow for a more ‘proportioned’ look. It is for this reason it is recommended to do both Penile Shaft and Penile Glans treatments simultaneously. In addition, it is also very time & cost effective when done together (see Fees, Specials & Financing).
Lastly, the Penile Glans may be treated for not only Penile Shaft –Glans proportion issues, but for Penile Erect Length gains. The Penile Erect (and flaccid) Shaft can lengthen because treating the Penile Glans does contribute to Penile Length, albeit marginal amounts.
