Question: Is there any surgical procedure to enlarge the penis?
Answer: Yes there are a number of surgical techniques that can increase the girth and length of the penis. A ligament that holds the penis in place can be released extending the penis by about an inch.

Dermal implanting can add length and girth.

As with any surgical intervention you must consider whether the perceived gains are worth the risk. There are a number of side effects and the cosmetic result can look odd.

Many urologists will not perform this type of operation unless there is a deformity or some other specific medical rationale.
