Penis enlargement surgery is not free from complications, and results can be variable, particularly in regard to penis lengthening surgery. This high rate of complications and absence of industry standards is partly the reason why penis enlargement surgery is almost exclusively carried out privately, rather than by the NHS. There are exceptions, however, in the case of a micro-penis, or if the penis has sustained damage as the result of an accident. If you feel that either of these situations might apply to you, then it may be possible to have penis enlargement on the NHS.
Normal Penis Size vs Micro-Penis
The average penis length is between 5 and 6 inches in, although results do vary across a number of studies, and there is a degree of variation in the penis size among different races and nationalities. The vast majority of penises fit within quite a narrow erect length range of 5 to 6 inches, and a narrow girth range of 4 to 5.5 inches. Of note, the length of the vagina is only about four inches when aroused, so the vast majority of men have sufficient length to stimulate the entire vagina.
In the case of a micro-penis, the patient may be eligible for surgery on the NHS. This would normally be restricted to cases in which the penis length is less than 3 inches when fully erect. In such cases, a referral from your GP would normally be required to see an NHS urologist. The NHS generally takes a negative view on penis enlargement procedures.
