This shouldn’t come as a surprise, but as much as women are dissatisfied with their bodies, so are men. Some don’t like their nose, some don’t like the shape of some muscles or other things that can be fixed with a little plastic surgery, while some are generally not happy with their manhood.
The constant struggle in a society that all men battle is the size and girth of your manhood. Don’t act like you didn’t have this discussion with your friends, and that this is the first time you hear about this. From the beginning of time men have fixated on their manhood, particularly on the length of it while others prefer both length and girth.

Well since we are at that point in age where everything is possible, even penile transformation, today we have an article regarding a Penuma implant and its growing popularity.

What is a Penuma implant?
This thing is a soft silicone medical grade implantation that looks like a sleeve that is positioned on either side of the penis to increase its size and girth. The implant idea itself stemmed from the silicone breast implants and it was made to replace the organic or non-organic material injected directly into your penis. If you weren’t familiar the organic material could be fat taken from your own body – stomach, buttocks, or thighs and they were directly injected into your penis. The non-organic compounds included silicone that was pretty much introduced into your manhood the same way. This was not effective which is why the Penuma implant was made. It consists of flexible mesh-like silicone that is supposed to be inserted just above the shaft where the penis is attached to the body, and it is designed to wrap around your penis. The mesh-like silicone is designed in a way that will conform to various natural movements and expansions of your manhood whether flaccid or erect which will add to the natural feel.
Who is the Penuma implant for?
Well, there are a lot of men with penile issues that are real and there are those who are simply not satisfied with what the good Lord provided them. Both of these groups can have this surgery done, but it is always better if you have some real issue with your manhood. But what exactly does make you eligible for a Penuma implant? Well, if you have a desire to change the aesthetic appearance of your penis if you have any sort of irregularities or indentations to your penis if you have what is called a retractile penis or any other irregularity that may be linked directly to your manhood. This means that nearly anyone is eligible for this implant whether there is a real medical urgency for it or you not being satisfied with what you have. One more, and we cannot stress this enough, if there is only an aesthetic purpose to the implant please think again, because any surgery no matter how deemed safe by the medical staff, is still a surgery and by many doctors, there is no such thing as a standard procedure with no risks involved.
Physical and psychological requirements
As with any procedure, you do have to have certain physical and psychological requirements met. This means that there will be testing that you have to undergo and the results of those tests will deem you fit or not for this kind of procedure. Physically you have to get cleared by your primary care provider to make sure you can undergo the anesthesia required for the procedure. One more thing to answer is if you had any other penile procedures done in past because most of the patients that already have other procedures done to their manhood didn’t do well with this implant and thus you will not be cleared for this procedure. Circumcision is a must if you want this procedure done, so there is another thing to think about. Skin abnormalities or scar tissue is also something that can stop you from having this procedure as well. Psychological requirements mean that doctors will test if you are in the right state of mind for this procedure which means that you will have normal expectations afterward. This means you will undergo specific grading scales that will assess what you think your penis will look like after the surgery. Then there is a specific questionnaire that will determine whether you do or don’t have a body dysmorphic disorder that will make you less satisfied or even dissatisfied after the surgery.
One of the things that makes this penal implant so popular is that among many others out there, this is the only one approved by the FDA, at least so far. It is also studied and reported in the scientific literature and there have been extensive researches regarding this device. They had people studies for several years determining their satisfactory levels, expectations, a boost in their self-esteem and confidence. Thanks to those researches they found out that the increase in girth of the penis is by 57% or 1.9 inches from the baseline. Linked to that people that underwent this procedure had a boost in confidence and self-esteem at the rate of 83% while the long-term increase in the same factors came down to slightly at 72%.
Now, this is the make or break part of this thing, and it is what you have been waiting for. As we previously mentioned there is no such thing as a routine operation or no risk involved. The risks, although reported low with this procedure, exist and you should expect something called Seroma that happens in 5% of these surgeries and it is a fluid collection underneath the incision. Less than 5% reported scar formation while less than 4% reported any signs of infections. These are overall good results but keep in mind that these come from the study that we mentioned earlier and that study was done on 400 patients. The big thing to ask yourself is will you have the same results with a doctor that hasn’t done 400 of these types of surgery and can you expect the same things. If you opt for this procedure try and go to someone that has several of these already done and even before that think good if this is really what you need. It would be a lot safer thing to learn to live with small shortcomings or defects than undergo something that in the end might cost you dearly.
