Post-Surgical Penis Retraction

Prevention penis shortening Androsurgery (Andropeyronie Surgery Edition) is a medically prescribed device to avoid penis shortening during urological post-surgery processes, due to penile retraction produced by scar creation. This Penis stretcher is a US patented penile traction device with comfortable tech. It is FDA approved.

Post-Surgical Retraction Prevention

Surgeries often have side effects, one of which is scar retraction. As the name implies, this is when the surgery results in a scar, and as this scar heals, the area around it shrinks. Whereas scar retraction is not a problem in most surgeries, it becomes a serious problem in prostatic surgery because the body part that eventually shrinks is the penis. In this case, a penis enlarger is a huge benefit.

A reliable solution to post-surgical penile shortening is Andropeyronie (Surgery Edition).

Usually, penile shortening takes place after any of the following surgeries:

andropeyronie display
  • Prostate cancer surgery in T1 or T2 Phases.
  • Curvature correction surgery.
  • Peyronie’s disease correctional surgery. (most of the cases resulted in a shortening of up to 3 cm, according to scientific studies).
  • Surgery for traumatic lesions to the Penis
  • Urethral narrowing correction surgery
  • Penis enlargement surgery
  • Penile implant surgery
  • Bladder related surgeries for bladder cancer, urinary incontinence, and surgery to heal traumatic lesions to the bladder

All of the surgeries listed above commonly cause penile shortening. An effective alternative to prevents penis retraction after a prostatic surgery is by using Andropeyronie (Surgery Edition). By keeping a constant force of traction on the penis, pulling it outwards, it prevents scar retraction from pulling the penis inwards and shortening it. In some cases, the use of an extender not only prevent penis shortening but can also produce a visible penis augmentation.

Penis Enlargement, Surgery (surgical procedure): is based mainly on the section of the suspensory ligament. Inside the body, the penis is extended, and the technique is based on extracting a little from the underside of the penis. An incision is made by cutting the suspensory ligament attached to the pubic bone. Once separated, part of the penis is extracted and finally stitched. Penis enlargement may be an average of 1.5 cm (karger), however, in the postoperative phase; generally, there is a retraction of the penis. Said shrinkage is caused by the healing process which has the unfortunate effect of reducing the results and therefore the frequent dissatisfaction of many patients.
Many surgeons advise the use of our extenders postoperatively to maintain the penis in tension and thereby prevent retraction of the penis.

Post-Surgical Studies

The Andropeyronie (Surgery Edition) product, facilitating male enhancement, is becoming the preferred medical treatment option, alternative to invasive surgery, for several andrological situations. . But in some cases, surgery is inevitable. Even in those situations, Andropeyronie (Surgery Edition) can be helpful. Scientific literature shows that keeping a constant force of traction on the penis and pulling it outwards prevents scar retraction (which otherwise would pull the penis inwards and shorten it).

Conclusions: The removal of fibrous plaques from the cavernous bodies albuginea and its substitution with autologous veins represent quite a codified procedure today. The added use of FosfoEsosolsomerase inhibitors to increase the cavernous microcirculation and the use of mechanical penile extenders can easily avoid the cavernous patch retraction and guarantee increased surgical results.

Treatment options for “hydiopathic short penis”: what is the evidence?

Conclusions: Penile additive surgery remains a controversial issue, dominated more by opinions than a scientific background. In our opinion, a more open view should be directed in the field of conservative methods of penile lengthening. Theoretically, there is no reason to believe that a penile stretcher may be less successful than surgery in elongating the suspensory ligament. Additionally, the use of non-invasive options gives the opportunity of widening considerably the indications for a treatment that, in the majority of cases, is merely cosmetic.

Following radical prostatectomy, a significant number of patients notice a progressive shortening of the penis, a fact confirmed in recent studies. To better understand why, Italian researchers measured the length of the flaccid and stretched penis in 126 patients at five time points: just before surgery, when the catheter was removed 7 to 10 days later, and at 3, 6, and 12 months postoperatively.

They reported that shortening peaked at the time the catheter was removed and continued, though to a lesser extent, for at least a year. (The average reduction in length after one year was just over a half inch when flaccid and nearly an inch when stretched.) Interestingly, men who had nerve-sparing surgery, as well as those who recovered some erectile function during the year of follow-up, lost less length than other study participants.

The researchers theorize that the death of nerve cells and reduced blood flow (and thus a loss of oxygen) to the penis during surgery and recovery may contribute to shortening. Although penile rehabilitation remains controversial, they suggest that it might help temper shortening, a conclusion supported by a study from a team of researchers in Minnesota. They found that starting the use of a vacuum erection device one month after surgery improves sexual function and helps to preserve penile length.

Treating Penis Shrinkage Due to Age or Surgery
Size does matter; at least it does to most guys when it comes to the length and/or girth of their penis. The truth is, penis size varies among men and is influenced primarily by ethnic background. Since you can’t change that factor, we will focus on what you can change as well as what works and what doesn’t when it comes to stopping penis shrinkage as you age.

Why does penis shrinkage happen?
Penis shrinkage occurs for several reasons as men age. As men get older, more and more plaque tends to accumulate in the arteries in the penis, which interferes with blood flow. Scar tissue (the protein collagen) also can build up in the fibrous sheathe that surrounds the chambers in the penis involved in erections. Blockages within these chambers can result in smaller erections. Aging is also characterized by muscle atrophy and a decline in testosterone, both of which can be associated with a slight decline in penis size.

Can prostate surgery affect penis shrinkage?
Radical prostatectomy results in penis shrinkage in about 70 percent of men who have the procedure. The amount of length men can lose after radical prostatectomy varies, although it averages about 0.5 inches (1.3 cm) for a flaccid penis and about 1 inch (2.3 cm) when the penis is stretched.

Three months after 31 men had a prostatectomy 71 percent of them experienced a reduction in the length of their penis: the reduction was 0.5 cm in seven men, 1.0 to 2.0 cm in 11 men, and more than 2.0 cm in four men. No change was reported in five men, and four men showed an increase in length of 0.5 to 1.0 cm.

What else can cause penis shrinkage?
Two penile conditions are among the reasons why penis shrinkage happens. One is Peyronies disease, in which an abnormal curvature of the penis can both shorten the penis slightly as well as cause a loss of girth. The other condition is congenital chordee, a rare health issue in which excessive elasticity in a part of the penis causes the organ to bend and be slightly shorter.

What lifestyle habits can help prevent penis shrinkage?
You should pay attention to your nighttime erections. Do you wake up hard? Do you experience erections during the night? These are indications that your penis is receiving decent blood flow and is functioning properly. With that good news, there are a few lifestyle habits you can adopt that can help prevent penis shrinkage, whether you are a healthy male or have undergone prostate cancer surgery. If you are in the latter category, also check out the post-surgical tips below.

Practice masturbation, which helps promote blood circulation in the penis and thus reduce the risk of penis shrinkage.
Engage in more sexual activity, which can help keep your penis from shrinking. The “use it or lose it” adage applies here.
Keep your testicles slightly (about 3 degrees F) lower than body temperature to help prevent shrinkage. Use boxers rather than briefs which can help keep temperatures lower.
Avoid tight underwear and pants, as they can restrict blood flow and over time may contribute to a smaller penis.
Lose those extra pounds if you are overweight or obese. Weight loss can improve blood circulation below the waist and reduce stress on your groin area.
Consider using medications that promote blood circulation, such as erectile dysfunction supplements (e.g., ANDROPHARMA VIGOR, ANDROPHARMA PENIS), which may help reduce penis shrinkage.
Get off the couch and exercise regularly, especially aerobic activities, which promotes blood circulation throughout the body
Stay well hydrated by consuming at least 8 to 10 glasses of pure water daily. Dehydration causes your tissues to contract and blood flow to become more sluggish.

Penis shrinkage is a decrease in penis size. Sometimes, the shrinkage is permanent, and other times, it is the result of a treatable condition or due to lifestyle habits.

Penis size varies amongst men, and in some cases, considerably. A study shows that neither race nor ethnicity has anything to do with penis size.

While many men may think they have above average size penises, most fall into the range experts consider normal size.

Research from BJU International finds average penis size falls within the following ranges:

  • Average length of a flaccid penis: 9.16 centimeters (about 3.6 inches)
  • Average length of a flaccid stretched penis: 13.24 cm (about 5.3 inches)
  • Average length of an erect penis: 13.12 cm (about 5.2 inches)
  • Average circumference of a flaccid penis: 9.31cm (about 3.7 inches)
  • Average circumference of an erect penis: 11.66 cm (about 4.6 inches)
