Not all operations leave happy customers – infections and scarring are both potential side-effects (“This is the same as an operation of any kind,” Viel says). Some men report a decline in angle after the suspensory ligament is cut, but according to David Ralph, a professor of urology at UCL, “By and large, patients don’t complain about that. The operation doesn’t change the erect length at all – this is only for men who have anxiety about how they look in the changing rooms. The average increase in size is 1.3cm, less than the diameter of a 1p coin. In my clinics, I show patients one of these and ask if they still think it is worth it. Less than 5% decide to, and of those who do, the satisfaction rate is just 20%.”
Alternatively, your surgeon may recommend surgery. For the lengthening procedure, a small incision is made in the pubic area. To widen the penis, small amounts of processed fatty tissue from your body are injected through tiny incision sites around the circumference of the penis. If the allograft technique is selected, the AlloDerm sheets will be inserted through the same incision as for the lengthening procedure.

Big Al has been a pioneer in penis enlargement for going on two decades. The 44-year-old Miami native tells me he was a “thin, shy and bookish child” until age 14, when he began lifting weights and caught the self-improvement bug. After a five-year stint in the Army, he became a self-taught expert on nutrition, kinesiology and biomechanics. While researching a book on steroid-free natural bodybuilding, Big Al noticed the muscle mags were all filled with ads for penis enlargement pumps, pills and surgical procedures, so he developed a natural penis enlargement program as a free bonus for his bodybuilding course. “Surprisingly, nine out of ten weightlifters I spoke with were only interested in male enhancement,” he says.
Depends. Some methods seem to be getting better responses than others. “Studies are being done to improve male girth through injections of hyaluronic acid, which is used as a filler (and is used in orthopedics to improve knee arthritis),” says Dr. Steve from SiriusXM's Weird Medicine on FactionTalk. (Here's a study that supports what Dr Steve is talking about). “The average vagina is 4 inches deep, so girth is much more likely to enhance pleasure for the woman than an increase of length, given that the average male penis length is approximately 5.5 inches,” says Dr. Steve.
In an operation to increase penis length, the surgeon cuts the suspensory ligament, which attaches the penis to the pubic bone. The result is that the flaccid penis appears longer (but not much), because more of the upper part of the shaft is exposed outside the body. Skin from the abdomen is used to cover the new longer shaft of the penis. The risk involved in cutting the suspensory ligament is that its function, that of supporting an erection and angling it upwards, may be lost. The erect penis may be unstable or point downwards.

In Warshak's case, the government had used a retrospective process to gain access to prospective messages. The SCA does allow the government to issue "preservation" requests, but these apply only to existing records that might be at risk of deletion; they do not apply to future messages. The Department of Justice's own surveillance manual made this clear even at the time, reminding agents that preservation requests "have no prospective effect....[Preservation] letters can order a provider to preserve records that have already been created, but cannot order providers to preserve records not yet made."
It’s time to cut through all the hype and tell it like it is. We’ve looked at all of the data to bring you objective and comprehensive reviews on all major male enhancement products in the marketplace.* Listed below are important factors that we’ve analyzed for each brand, so that you don’t have to play Russian roulette with your erection. Here are the factors which we took into consideration-
The Stored Communications Act (SCA) covers situations like this one in which user data is held by a third-party service like NuVox or Google or Yahoo and is stored on that company's servers, and it makes that data fairly simple to get. Full warrants are often not required, in part because such surveillance is "retrospective;" the government gets access only to messages already stored on the server by a suspect. Even the name of the act makes this distinction clear—it was meant to cover "stored" material.
What customers got for their money was a supply of herbal supplements designed to look as much like a pharmaceutical as possible, right down the shape and color of the tablets. Berkeley lacked scientific evidence that Enzyte worked, but it's fair to say that efficacy wasn't one of the company's chief concerns. For instance, Berkeley at some point reformulated Rovicid, its prostate-health/sex-enhancing supplement, as a "heart-health dietary supplement" instead. Rather than throw out the old Rovicid, Berkeley simply slapped new labels on the old containers—even though the new ingredient list didn't match what was in the tablets. In 2004, when Food and Drug Administration (FDA) inspectors came through the company's warehouse, the second shift manager went to the "sick aisle" of mislabeled products, packed the relabeled Rovicid into a rental truck, and drove it to the parking lot of another Berkeley-owned building. He restocked it after the inspectors left.
In a last brief conversation with Alistair, he asks if I would ever consider going under the knife. I tell him I’ve seen such a bewildering array of shapes and sizes over the past few weeks, I don’t even know what normal is any more. If it does the job nature intended, I say, that should be enough. For many men wanting an enlargement, it’s probably not so much about what’s in their pants as what, somewhere along the way, has got into their minds – and that can’t be fixed by a fat injection and a severed ligament.
