The website http://www.lpsg.org
has released the news of a new surgical
breakthrough which promises hope for those unfortunate men suffering with
what doctors call a "micro-penis."
A micro-penis measures less than 2.8 inches long when fully erect, and
some micro-penises are even less than one inch long (that really sucks!).
Surprisingly, penises of this length are not as rare as you would think,
with as many as one in two hundred men suffering this affliction either
due to birth defects or due to chemotherapy treatments given as infants.
But now, a ray of hope from surgeons in Britain, who have perfected a
technique which uses skin from the forearm to reconstruct the penis.
The new technique not only increases the size of the penis, but also
preserves erogenous sensation, which was not possible with previous
For those who want to go all the way, full sexual function can also be
accomplished by inserting a penile prosthesis -- complete with a tiny
pump to create an erection -- inside the newly created penis.
