Many men who take off their clothes and stand in front of a mirror like what they see. Others may find flaws, including what they perceive to be a small penis. When a guy believes he has a small penis, this can have an impact on his self-esteem, his self-confidence and his sex life. Sometimes it can even have an impact on his penis health, especially if he attempts to make his equipment larger by engaging in techniques which may do physical harm to the penis. There are many techniques that claim to enlarge a small penis, some of which are harmless and some of which are not. One of the more recent developments in this area, and one increasing in popularity, is the use of penis fillers.

Is small so bad?

Before discussing penis fillers, it pays to spend a little time talking about a man’s perception of his penis as small. Very often a man may believe he has a small penis when in fact his equipment is perfectly adequate. Almost all penises, when erect, are of sufficient size to provide sexual pleasure to a partner, even if they are not "monster sized." The emphasis on enormous male appendages is likely exacerbated by the omnipresence of online pornography, which often features men with exceptionally large penises or uses camera angles to give an impression of greater size.

But even when a man does have a penis that is somewhat on the small side, that doesn’t necessarily mean his penis is inadequate. A four inch penis is perfectly capable of bringing about great ecstasy in a partner, provided a man knows how to use it to its best advantage. Except in the cases of a true micropenis, skill counts for much more than size.

Penis fillers

Despite this, there are plenty of men anxious to make their penis larger, and penis fillers are one avenue some are pursuing. Basically, penis fillers work the same way that "lip plumping" works. With lips, an injection of certain approved substances makes the lips fuller. With penis fillers, several injections are made to insert a substance into the shaft to add to the girth of the penis. (At this point, penis fillers do not add to the length of the member.)

An anesthetic is first applied to numb the penis, and then several injections are made at various points along the shaft in order to ensure the filler is evenly spaced. Sometimes the procedure is repeated a couple of weeks later. When done properly, there is some soreness afterward, but not a great deal. The effects are not permanent, lasting usually three to six months.

It is very important to note that fillers are not FDA-approved for use in the penis at all, and that there are significant risks associated with this procedure. It should only be performed by a licensed plastic surgeon; many men have had their penises injected with fillers that turned out to be toxic, which can be damaging and potentially fatal. In addition, there can be other risks, such as a potential "numbing" in the penis or a misshapen look if the fillers do not spread out evenly.

Bottom line: Men who believe they must use penis fillers should do so with the knowledge that there can be complications.

Small penis or large, and whether penis fillers are used or not, a guy needs to utilize a top flight penis health crème (health professionals recommend Man1 Man Oil, which is clinically proven mild and safe for skin) for better penis care. Choose a crème with both Shea butter (a high-end emollient) and vitamin E (a natural hydrator) to provide double-moisturizing power for the penis skin. The crème should also include vitamin D, which is made only in limited quantities in the body. Adding vitamin D can help boost its benefits to the penis.
