Penile Girth Enhancement

Penile Girth Enhancement

Penile Girth Enhancement


”Size matters“ – “too big“ or “too small“ play a role in many areas of life. This phenomenon does not even stop at your own body and its proportions. It may be very stressful if individual parts are perceived as deviating from the ideal, and may lead to pronounced avoidance behavior.

Studies show that up to 70% of men in Germany are not satisfied with the size and shape of their penis. In a comparative research study on penis size, German men have only reached 12th place out of 16.

Penile girth enhancement may, therefore, lead to an improved feeling of well-being and more self-confidence.

Penis augmentation with autologous fat transplants or possibly also with hyaluronic acid is the least intrusive method to enlarge the penis. Circumferential enhancement of up to 2 cm is possible, even permanently, if autologous fat is used.

Fatty tissue will be harvested from the abdomen or thigh without leaving noticeable scars. Subsequently, the tissue is processed with a specific method before it is reinjected into the body. Finally, the experienced specialist injects small fat cell units under the penis’ skin into the subcutaneous fatty tissue to replace missing volume and rejuvenate the skin.

This procedure is also known as autologous fat transplantation. It is based on the fact that living fat cells can be removed from one part of the body, carefully cleaned, processed, and reinjected at another part of the body. With the correct technique, the living fat cells will start growing again and cause a permanent increase in girth. How much fat is injected into your penis, and where, will depend on your penis and your individual desire, and will be discussed before the treatment in a personal consultation.

Scientific research has demonstrated that only 40 to 80 percent of the fat cells will survive the process, even with the correct, state-of-the-art surgical technique. Since the procedure involves living cells harvested from your own body, the treatment’s success depends to no small extent on the quality of the fat cells themselves and on your compliance in following the instructions during the follow-up treatment.

Erectile function and fertility remain unaffected by penile girth augmentation.

In a personal consultation, Dr. med. Dr. med. Christina Irene Günter will discuss sensitively and in detail which treatment or therapy is to be recommended in your individual case.

It goes without saying that your health is always given priority. Surgery that negatively affects your health or physical integrity is not recommended. Detailed consultations are mandatory before any surgical procedure. It is essential to talk about the motivation for this kind of surgery, to discuss whether the desired result can be achieved, and to speak about possible limitations. Other important topics are alternative treatments, as well as potential adverse side effects and possible risks. 

The surgery can be performed on an outpatient or inpatient basis. However, general anesthesia or twilight sleep or local anesthesia will be necessary.


Penile girth enhancement may lead to infections, local bleeding and hematoma, swelling (possibly prolonged), temporary loss in sensitivity at the donor site, and slight asymmetries.

The post-operative treatment will depend on the type and extent of the procedure. For 9 to 12 weeks after surgery, you should refrain from intense physical exercise. To achieve a perfect result, a second operation may be necessary after 9 to 12 months.

If you decide on a surgical procedure, it is essential that you are cared for professionally and personally during the entire process. 

I attach great importance to perceiving, advising, and treating you as an individual, with all the facets of your personality. My many years of experience, expertise, empathy, and communication are central pillars of my therapeutic success. Intensive and personal post-treatment care is as much a focus of my work as the preparation and the treatment itself. After all, a perfect result can only be achieved by working together as a team.
