Can a Man Increase the Size of His Penis?

No other question has so vexed men more than the question of “how can I get a bigger penis?” It is one of the most common questions males ask.

It is common for a man to perceive his penis as too small. The average length of a flaccid penis is between 3.4 to 3.7 inches, and the average length of an erect penis is between 5.1 to 5.7 inches. In fact, a penis is considered to be abnormally small when it’s less than 3 inches.  

Self-perception is extremely important and has a powerful effect on many areas of life. Evidence from one study found that men who reported feeling most satisfied with their genital self-image had lower levels of sexual anxiety and better sexual functioning overall. Researchers found the opposite to be true in some, but not all cases. Men who reported feeling dissatisfied with their bodies also reported feelings of anxiety and various issues with sexual difficulties. 

If you need any further proof of the prevalence of this issue, a simple Google search would give you a glimpse of the hundreds of various treatments and products that promise a larger penis and a satisfying life. 

We’ve compiled a list here of some of the so-called tips for increasing your penis size:


First and foremost, remember the penis is not a muscle but a collection of spongy tissue that relies entirely on engorgement to become erect. Unlike muscles, you cannot exercise the penis to make it bigger or stronger. Most alleged “exercise” techniques involve some combination of stretching, pulling, and squeezing an erect penis. There is no scientific proof that these exercises (sometimes called “jelqing”) work at all. 

Pills, Lotions, Ointments, & Supplements

Over-the-counter products claim their special combination of vitamins, minerals, or herbs will naturally boost penis size. Again there is no proof these will help. In fact, some products could be harmful. The FDA has issued warnings that penile supplements might contain hidden and dangerous ingredients. It is important to consult your physician before you take any supplements or medications. 


Penis pumps and stretchers promise natural penile enlargements, but the truth is, using these products will most likely lead to injury. A pump draws more blood to the penis, causing it to swell and appear larger, but only temporarily. If used too often or for too long, it can damage the elastic tissue within the penis. 

A stretcher or extender is another mechanism that claims to naturally enlarge the penis. The stretcher attaches to an erect penis to exert traction. The devices look like something out of the Inquisition, but a few low-quality studies have shown traction could add 1-2 cm to an erection. More rigorous research is needed on the subject before a definitive endorsement for this method can be made.

Penis Enlargement Surgery in Nashville

There are different surgical procedures to lengthen and widen a penis. To lengthen the penis, a surgeon can sever the suspensory ligament that attaches the penis to the pubic bone, and move the skin from the abdomen to the shaft. Severing the suspensory ligament, however, can make an erect penis unstable. 

To increase the girth of a penis, surgeons can graft in fat or tissue. Fat grafting removes fat from a fleshy part of the body and injects it into the penis. The other technique grafts tissue onto the shaft of the penis. Surgery is risky though, and may not work. Results have also shown that the majority of men who undergo penis-enlargement surgery aren’t satisfied.  

Before you undergo any of these questionable and risky procedures and products, please consult a physician first.

An Option that Works: RestoreMore

Girth Maximizer Penis Enlargement is a dermal filler treatment that can help increase penile circumference by two inches. The PRP procedure uses the body’s own healing factors to increase circulation to the penis. This increased circulation has effectively improved both erectile quality and size. 

Hormone therapy isn’t just for women. Men can benefit from bio-identical hormones because, after age 30, men steadily lose testosterone production by 1% each year. A contributing factor to reduced libido is an imbalance in the levels of progesterone, estrogen, and testosterone.
