Hey thanks for your response. I dont understand what all the argument is about but I thought you responded politely and gave me advice. Yes, I couldve searched, but I kept seeing mixed results about size increasing/decreasing. I guess the best thing is to go to a good surgeon. This alleviated my concerns a lot that I will likely not lose much size if at all, I might even gain!

Gentlemen,

Enough of the bun-fighting please. Exchanges like this will serve to dissuade future posters. Allow me to interject my own self for a moment and mediate.

First, when entering a new forum with newbie status it’s good form to take a bit of time binge-reading whatever has been posted before. This is true be it a sailing forum, a travel forum, or an implant forum. Asking questions that have been frequently answered serves to elicit a collective eye-roll (“this again??”) from the veterans. It implies a bit of laziness and disregard for the existing wisdom contained in the forum.

Next, this forum happens real-time with many posters in the real-time stress of their ED, their fears, their upcoming surgeries, or their post-surgical experiences. Sometimes the reassurance of real people, real-time, responding specifically to them is a great comfort. Friendships have been formed here. Because of this forum i actually have befriended and met up personally with another member, i n Thailand. Having this common experience lent itself to an experience of great comeraderie.

So, everyone cut the other guy some slack. The newbies, the annoyed, the misinformed, and the regulars.

This place is about helping. Not fussing.

OP. I gained overall girth. However, my dick has a somewhat more oval appearance. This is mitigated by full inflation and arousal, and any partner who didn’t know me before would not suspect anything was off. It just looks hard and engorged. Only I am aware of the change. My girlfriend now loves it.

I’m 4.5” midshaft and 4.25” base. Will they be sizing me for midshaft size or will I be limited by the smaller base size? Also, will I be smaller post-op? I dont have much girth to give so even every .1 counts…


Hi Goose,

I think your girth will remain the same and most likely increase based on the measurements you posted. Some guys with 5.5+ girth have reported loss in girth but i havent seen/ remember anyone with your measurements getting less girth.

Thank you.
Have you started working with a surgeon? If not this should definitely be a question you ask them as you interview them, its a common and warranted question they should answer candidly.
Everyone’s situation is different and while I have seen all the postings that say implants help with girth, I was the exception and have lost girth. In fact my dr told me prior to examination that I would likely gain girth. After exam he told me I may lose girth. Everyone situation is unique

The mixed results is very easy to explain. During the first few months of recovery men will quickly start posting about the size that they lost. They either forget or don't understand that it generaly takes a year to recovery from surgery. Successful recovery requires consistent & dedicated cycling also. Much like many forms of exercise. You need repetition & constantly challenging your previous max routine.

Three months after surgery my dr measured me at .5cm of length increase over my stretch test length. About a week ago I was 1cm longer than my 3 month dr visit. So in 6 months I've gained 1.5cm from presurgery. I think that is a significant amount.

I always had good girth. I don't have an exact pre ED girth measurement but I do know how well my fingertip met my palm. I'm not quite there yet but I'm really close. I hesitate to post my exact sizes as I continue cycling. Seems some guys get hung up on a size when a member has passed that size a month or two later. Two days ago, I reached 6" girth at mid shaft. I feel like all is going well.

As to challenging myself on cycling. After reaching 6", I took a day off from cycling. My dick had a dull ache. It takes time. Please be prepared to do the work to cycle every day that you can. Count on a full year, maybe 18 months. It does happen, it is just so very slow that its hard for you to notice.

Solving ED is one hell of a journey. Somewhere I read that only about 3% of men will travel the entire path. Most just give up & live with being impotent or nearly impotent. That is a choice that only you can make.

Apparently your objection to questions about topics already covered has nothing to do with saving your or anybody else's time.

To answer your question. If you spend some time thinking about your penis size, as in if its tapered. All that taper is natural. Adding cylinders is basically only going to make it rigid. The taper in the tissue should still be there. My penis is tapered a bit, always has been. My CX hasn't changed that at all. It just gets hard, really hard & last until I want to stop.

Sorry if I'm behind the narrative. My eyes glazed over and I went to bed no closer to any answers.

I just celebrated one year Coloplast Titan. Over time I had girth growth starting from the lower third and over time it increased on the lower two thirds and today it's almost even. Awhile ago I was thinking Urofil and I'm glad I waited so as far as I'm concerned both increase in length and girth especially girth.
