For men unhappy with the shape and size of their penis, often the first place they start is with lotions and pills. Considered soft options, many fall prey to the marketing hype and use lotions or take pills designed to improve the length and girth of the penis.

But which treatment is really best? Penis enlargement surgery or penis-enhancing pills? Read on to find out, once and for all.

Penis enlargement pills simply do not exist

According to an array of medical sources, including Medical News Today, Healthline and a variety of medical journals, despite manufacturers leading claims, there is no scientific or medical evidence that penis enlarging supplements work.

Companies claim their male enhancement pills can enlarge the penis and increase their energy levels and sexual performance. This is often achieved, according to manufacturers, by combining a cocktail of vitamins, herbs, hormones, botanicals, and minerals specifically formulated for male biology.

However, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has found that many manufacturers actually hide active ingredients that could be harmful within the mix of vitamins and minerals. These ingredients, such as tadalafil and sildenafil, are active ingredients which make up the branded medications Cialis and Viagra respectively, that are used to treat erectile dysfunction.

As such, users taking their penis enlargement pill may in fact simply be experiencing the effects of these medications, which can make the penis seem longer.

More shockingly, however, is the unexplored side effects of taking these supplements unknowingly, especially if you already take medication. Side effects can include:

  • Mood changes and anxiety
  • Hallucinations
  • Life-threateningly low blood pressure
  • Irregular heartbeat and increased risk of heart attacks
  • Increased cancer risks
  • Seizures
  • Headaches
  • Constipation
  • Allergic dermatitis

This is possible because supplements do not go through the same testing and don’t necessarily need approval before they can be sold, unlike medications.

Realistically then, the only safe and effective solution for penis enlargement is surgery.

Penis enlargement surgery is the only solution for increasing penis size

Reputable hospitals for penis enlargement surgery should be run by qualified, experienced medical professionals who do the work beforehand to ensure surgical intervention will not endanger the patient.

Such steps to look out for include hospitals or medical professionals that:

  • Fully consider patient health during consultations
  • Carefully review your medical history and current conditions
  • Check any medications you take for contraindications
  • Carry out thorough pre-surgery checks
  • Only employ experienced medical professionals
  • Performing surgery in private hospitals registered with the CQC (Care Quality Commission)

If your chosen provider checks out, they will then use surgical interventions to increase the length and girth of the penis, leaving patients with permanent results that do not risk their health.

Penis enlargement surgery can be the answer

If you find a reputable andrology clinic to perform your penis enlargement surgery, it can be an easy and safe way to increase the length and girth of your penis.

Such clinics can be found using thorough research, by talking to customer service agents, and by using websites such as Google Reviews and Trustpilot for impartial, verified reviews.
