Hype and Hoopla: Penis Mightier than the sword (read: Enlarged Penis)
LONDON: Think a dozen times before deciding upon a penis enlargement procedure. Too much hype and hoopla about size-lift surgeries to the Penis, advertised extensively over the internet and spam mails, has led many size-fixated enthusiasts to the operating table. According to the researchers, it is still under weather down under, post penis enlargement surgeries, with most men dissatisfied with the outcome.

Nim Christopher, a urologist at St Peter's Andrology Center in London, said that "For patients with psychological concern about the size of the penis -- particularly if it is normal size -- there is little point in offering them surgery because it makes no difference." Christopher and his team spoke to 42 men who had undergone a penis enlargement surgery. The unhappiness levels were still very high, and most of them wanted another corrective surgery. Christopher further added that "The average increase in length is 1.3 cm (0.5 inches) which isn't very much and the dissatisfaction rate was in excess of 70 percent," said Christopher.

According to Christopher, psychological counseling and non surgical options should be explored rather than resorting to futile surgical measures. These findings have been reported in the Journal of European Urology.
