Loss of Penile Size with Age?
Two out of five men suffer effects of penile atrophy and related medical conditions.
Penile Enhancement Surgery
Restore your Self-confidence and Performance.
Due to the natural aging process, various medical conditions, prescription drug side effects and genetic predispositions – countless men suffer loss of self-confidence and performance from reduced size and tightness. At Morganstern Urology and Men’s Health Clinic, our penile augmentation and rejuvenation procedures can enhance and improve those areas with maximum results and minimal downtime.
Loss of Penile Length from Male Aging
It is estimated that without preventative measures a 30-year-old man will lose between a half inch to one full inch of penile length1 by age 70 on average. As men grow older, blood flow to the penis diminishes because of fatty deposits within the blood stream These deposits start to trigger blockage in the tubes that supply blood and cause a reduction in muscle size within the corpus cavernous (penile organ). As the tubes that supply blood become constricted, erections become smaller and less firm. Another factor with reduced size is known as “sagging,” which is discussed more fully at WebMD2.
With Morganstern’s advanced enhancement procedures, patients are able to regain these losses and often get even more length than before, thereby preserving functionality, performance, and a sense of well-being. Both lengthening and widening procedures are available at our men’s clinic. We also provide both surgical and non-surgical penis augmentation options.

Loss of Thickness from Vascular Insufficiency
Due to aging, various health diagnoses and certain surgical procedures, many men experience a reduction in the force behind their vascular blood flow, according to the National Center of Biotechnology Information (NCBI)3. A negative side effect of vascular insufficiency is that penile girth shrinks because of the reduced volume and force of blood flow available to maintain the corpus cavernous (penile organ). Since the penis organ is situated on the very edge of the human body, any noticeable reduction in vascular force is going to impact its size, particularly when the penis is flaccid.
We offer both surgical and non-surgical procedures that will improve penile girth complications.

Reduced Size and Performance from Weight Gain or Excess Skin
Weight Gain / Fat Pad
Another common diagnosis is a noticeable reduction in sexual performance from weight gain and/or an engorged pubic fat pad, located just above the penile organ, as researched and documented by VeryWell Urological Health4. Excess weight in this area can visibly shrink the penis by drawing it inward within the adipose tissue atop the pelvic bone. In extreme cases, the penis becomes known as “buried or hidden” penis. Some men struggle with this sort of penile shrinkage even without being significantly overweight. They are simply genetically predisposed to maintain an inordinately larger pubic fat pad, leaving them with less size.

Excess Scrotal Tissue at Base of Penis
Excessive scrotal tissue that crowds around the base of the penis is a relatively common source of less visible length and a reduced ability to achieve maximum penetration depth. The tissue build up bunches around the penile base and is most commonly considered a genetic trait but some speculate significant changes in bodyweight could trigger such build up.
Morganstern Urology provides a unique and successful solution to this condition known as its FoundoplastyTM – where the excess skin at the base of the penis and top of the scrotum is excised and parts of the removed tissue is used to slightly reposition the base of the penis at the pelvic bone to jut out further. The combination of creating a visibly longer and jutted penis provides a sometimes extraordinary outcome from a relatively simple procedure and less downtime than more extensive enlargement procedures.
Penoscrotal webbing (aka webbed penis) is yet another diagnosis that inhibits penile size and performance. This condition can occur both genetically and from a botched circumcision at birth. It’s manifested when the full thickness scrotal skin adheres to the ventral penile skin. Lots of patients aren’t even aware they have a less pronounced penoscrotal condition, having lived with it their entire adult life. However, rectifying the condition often results in an increase of an inch or more in visible penile length, and significant upsurge in penetration depth. Resolving more severe cases through scrotoplasty surgery is often life changing for both self-image and sexual performance. While a prototypical urologist will only remove what’s clinically necessary to overcome the diagnosis, Morganstern takes extra time and care to sculpt the tissue in a manner that provides the absolute maximum increase in penile appearance and penetration.
Morganstern Urology provides a wide variety of penile skin augmentation procedures plus multiple variations of fat pad reduction to help resolve complications from weight gain and diagnosis related to excess or deformed skin within the penile region.
Diminished Penile Size from Prescription Drug Side Effects
Several of the more powerful stimulant drugs prescribed for weight loss, depression and a popular drug used to treat Attention Deficient Disorder (ADD) have been noted to trigger a reduction in penis size.
The most popular drug prescribed for Attention Deficient Disorder diagnosis is the most significant drug to potentially trigger a reduction in penile size. Clinical studies in this regard are still in their infancy but the primary problem appears rooted in the fact it breaks down the protein elastin which is present in the penis in sinusoids, arterioles and in the tunica albuginea. Any breakdown of this tissue would result in penile shrinkage in both the flaccid and erect states from constricted blood flow. Another potential penile problem that could be generated by this popular stimulant comes from its powerful signaling properties (a drug aspect that makes it successful treating ADD). The potential for a subsequent cascade in the muscle cells within the penis could result in tissue death, and thus, subsequently – loss of penile size. Some medical practitioners theorize that any size reduction should return after the medication is no longer prescribed. However, a growing number of men within online forums claim otherwise and the whole matter is now being considered by a couple of different university studies in the future.
The good news is that Morganstern Urology offers a wide array of surgical and non-surgical augmentation procedures that can easily offset the penile shrinkage effects from select prescription drugs.
Genetic Predisposition’s Impact on Male Endowment
Sexual organ size is a genetically determined trait which most men had no control over since birth. Those born with “less than average” penile size often suffer from negative self image beginning at a young age when peer comparisons first begin.
Some of the problem is rooted in the false assumptions regarding what’s actually “average size”. While the pop culture response to average erect length is “six inches” – a detailed clinical study published in the official peer-reviewed medical journal, the British Journal of Urology International (BJUI) of the British Association of Urological Surgeons (BAUS)5 revealed “average” is actually quite smaller than the six inch pop culture myth.
A quick summation of average sizes from their randomized study includes:
- Average length of a flaccid penis: 9.16 centimeters (about 3.6 inches)
- Average length of a flaccid stretched penis: 13.24 cm (about 5.3 inches)
- Average length of an erect penis: 13.12 cm (about 5.2 inches)
- Average circumference of a flaccid penis: 9.31cm (about 3.7 inches)
- Average circumference of an erect penis: 11.66 cm (about 4.6 inches)
A man with a micro penis diagnosis (two inches or less in length, when erect) is often the most socially traumatized by his genetic predisposition. Many patients we surgically extended with a micro-penis diagnosis confessed to years of celibacy because of their inborn condition.
Some men confuse aspects of buried and / or hidden penis with micro penis, equating a diminished flaccid size because of an oversized pubic fat pad-based penile withdrawal to its micro equivalent. They are not the same thing. If such a patient can press down at the base of their penis and achieve length in excess of two inches when erect, their size is not a urological diagnosis for micro penis.
Our proprietary Micro-penis surgical lengthening procedure, invented and performed by one of the leading penile urologic plastic surgeons in America, provides the absolute most additional length your body will safely allow to increase penile length.

What is Penile Rejuvenation?
Penile Augmentation and Rejuvenation, also called Phalloplasty, is male enhancement procedures designed to increase penile size, self-confidence and sexual gratification to offset conditions associated with penile atrophy and lack of size. Common causes include:
- Type-2 Diabetes
- Prostate Cancer
- Genetic Predisposition
- Prescription Drug Side Effects
Medical outcomes from these conditions affect millions of men each year. At Morganstern Urology, we provide both non-surgical plus minimally-invasive surgical solutions for penile augmentation and rejuvenation. We will discuss our many options these with you during your male-to-male phone consultation and help you choose which option is best for you and your individual condition. All procedures are performed our in-office surgical center, some in as little as one hour. All result in measurable improvement, lasting results, and minimal downtime.
