Men Who Lose Penile Length After Prostatectomy Could Regain It Within a Year: Study
Save the Date for the 21st World Meeting on Sexual Medicine
New research published in BJU International suggests that men who lose penile length after radical prostatectomy could recover that length within a year of surgery.
The news could be encouraging for many men, for whom penile length and girth is connected to self-esteem.
For the study, researchers measured the stretched penile lengths of 102 men who had undergone robot-assisted radical prostatectomy. The measurements took place before surgery and at specific follow-up points over the next two years.
The penises were shortest ten days after surgery, but length gradually recovered.
