SMSNA Position Statement: Penile Lengthening and Girth Enhancement Surgery

The Society for the Study of Impotence has found no peer-reviewed, objective or independently-monitored studies, or other data, which prove the safety or efficacy of penile lengthening and girth enhancement surgery.
 
The Society believes that, in men who do not have congenital anatomical anomalies of the penis, the safety and efficacy of penile lengthening and girth enhancement surgery have not been established.
 
Therefore, penile lengthening and girth enhancement surgery can only be regarded as experimental surgery.
 
The Society is aware of complications and adverse outcomes which should be clearly disclosed to patients considering such surgery.
 
The Society believes that those government agencies charged with the regulation of medical practice and the enforcement of laws prohibiting false or unsubstantiated advertising claims should give careful attention to claims made with regard to these surgical procedures.
