If you have ever been worried about the size of your penis, know that you’re not the first man to feel this way. Most men have an average size penis while some are diagnosed with a micropenis.
A micropenis is generally 7cms or smaller in length and less than 10% of men are diagnosed with this condition. Fortunately, there is a treatment available that can lengthen the penis.
Understanding More about the Micropenis
The average male newborn has a penis of 3 – 4cms if it is gently stretched out to be measured. If a baby is born with a micropenis, it will be less than 2cms in length and can be diagnosed at an early age. To determine whether a male has a micropenis, the penis will be measured along the dorsal aspect. If there is a deviation of 6cms or more from the average length, a micropenis diagnosis can be made.
What Causes a Micropenis?
Hormonal or genetic abnormalities that occur in the womb are the leading causes of a micropenis. The penis begins to develop at about 8 weeks and by week 12, growth will begin to occur.
Male sex hormones are what will encourage further growth but if anything interferes with these hormones, growth will be stunted.
Some studies also show that pesticides can also cause a micropenis in certain cases.
Micropenis Side Effects
While a micropenis will never be harmful to your health, it can affect a man’s ability to urinate properly and it leads to physiological problems that will also affect sexual intercourse. Men with micropenises will generally suffer from depression and low self-confidence.
How to Treat a Micropenis
When a child is diagnosed with a micropenis, testosterone treatments can be used to stimulate growth, however, this isn’t always enough to achieve a full, average size penis. It’s for this reason that penis growing at CALIBRE has become so popular.
Using fillers that contain hyaluronic acid, the size and shape of the penis can be altered in an effort to achieve a larger size. Using a fine needle, the fillers are injected into the penis to achieve the desired result. Since hyaluronic acid occurs naturally in the body, the effects of the treatment can also be reversed should the patient be unhappy with the results.
There are other options such as devices that stretch the penis and penile implants but these are more invasive and can lead to complications, which is why they’re not the first option for many men who are concerned with the size of their penis or have a micropenis.
Even though fillers are safer than other products and procedures, it’s still important to remember that this is a delicate procedure and it should only be performed by a medical professional who has the necessary experience and qualifications.
The product that is used in the injections and how the injections are administered can make a difference to your wellbeing and the end result so choose a reputable clinic that specialises in this treatment.
