Penis extensions don’t work, study finds
Procedures carry high risk of complications ‘and should almost never be carried out’
“These procedures should almost never be done,” said Muir.
“Many men who wish to undergo penis enlargement procedures have an average-sized penis but believe their size to be inadequate. Sadly, some clinics seem to ignore this. Surgeons in the private sector should not do this. It’s wrong on every level.”
An unknown number of men who seek such treatment have either body dysmorphic disorder or penile dysfunction disorder, both of which involve an obsessive dissatisfaction with their appearance.
Body dysmorphia should not be treated by not very effective surgery.
