Sexual Health Q&A

What are some of the risks of penile surgery?

Bleeding and infection are common complications. This is because the penis has an intricate network of blood vessels – arteries that allow blood in for an erection and veins that take the blood out after ejaculation.

There is also the risk that a man won’t be satisfied with the results. He may think that his sex life will greatly improve after surgery. This might happen, but it might not. Any man considering surgery should have realistic expectations and understand all possible outcomes.
