What is the Average Penis Size, & What is the Need for Safer Enlargement Methods Such as Fillers?

One study showed that only 1 in 3 men were satisfied with their penis size: one-third were completely dissatisfied, and the rest were somewhere in between.

When we’re self-conscious about our appearance, it affects our performance in and out of the bedroom. Our mindset and self-image affect how we view ourselves, others, and the world around us.

Often, it helps to take a step back and look at the facts. What are the real numbers? What is the actual average penis size?

What is the Average Penis Size?

If you’ve ever talked about penis size with your buddies, know that the numbers might just be exaggerated. One study revealed that many men overestimate their penis size when sharing numbers, both in social settings and in medical surveys.

But we’re here to look at the facts. A comprehensive study in 2014 analyzed over 15,000 men and over 20,000 measurements of flaccid and erect length and girth size to get real answers. Here’s what they found:

Average Penis Length

Measured from the base of the shaft to the tip.

  • Average flaccid penis length: 3.58 inches / 9.09 cm
  • Average erect penis length: 5.16 inches / 13.1 cm

Average Penis Girth Size

Measured around the circumference of the shaft.

  • Average flaccid penis girth size: 3.66 inches / 7.6 cm
  • Average erect penis girth size: 4.59 inches / 11.7 cm

What’s Considered “Big” vs. “Small?”

In the same study, men in the 90th percentile for erect penis length measured at 5.9 inches (15 cm) or longer.

Less than 1% of the group had a “micropenis,” a flaccid length below 2.04 inches or about 5 cm. Supporting studies estimate approximately 2.2% of the population has a flaccid length of 2.36 inches or 6 cm.

Why Do Men Get Penis Enlargement?

There is no “normal” penis size — the numbers show us how much size truly varies. Yet, we know that only 1 in 3 men are satisfied with their size. As a result, many men are turning to penis enlargement treatments to help.

Besides bigger results, men often experience life-changing benefits after treatment. This all ties back to why men get penis enlargement procedures done in the first place.

Here are a few common reasons:

Increased Confidence and Self-Image

Research shows the majority of men get penis enlargement procedures to improve confidence and self-esteem.

One study showed that men are just as concerned with penis size as they are about height and weight.

These self-image concerns overlap with fear and anxiety about being alone, rejected, or mocked for their size, whether around women or other men. Poor self-image is closely connected to feelings of anxiety and depression.

Improved Sexual Satisfaction and Performance

Penis enlargement treatments can enhance your sex life in multiple ways:

For one, the larger girth size can increase stimulation in partners, heightening satisfaction and orgasms.

If you struggle with premature ejaculation like nearly 30% of men, procedures like glans penis augmentation can help combat hypersensitivity. As a result? You and your partner can enjoy longer, more satisfying sex.

Of course, improved confidence can help combat performance anxiety and increase satisfaction in the bedroom.

Relieve Mental Health & Body Image Disorders

In serious cases, some men may experience PDD (Penile Dysmorphophobia Disorder) or SPA (Small Penis Anxiety). Those with PDD may see their penis as smaller than it is in reality, affecting their self-image and performance.

Those with SPA can experience severe anxiety when others see their genitals, whether during sex or in the locker room, causing disruptive stress and worry.

If you believe you may be experiencing either of these conditions, penis enlargement may help. However, reach out to a mental health therapist first to find the right step in your journey to regain confidence.

What is the Need for Safer Enlargement Methods?

Penis enlargement isn’t anything new. Throughout civilization, penis size has been somewhat of a symbol among men. Some ancient cultures even developed dangerous practices (two words: snake bites!) to increase their length and girth size.

Fortunately, society is becoming more and more accepting of the treatment. Like other popular cosmetic procedures, penis enlargement helps boost confidence and enjoy desired results.

With this acceptance, experts in the field have advanced enlargement procedures,
developing safe, effective treatments such as dermal penis fillers.

Dermal Penis Fillers

Dermal penis fillers are non-invasive, painless male enlargement injections proven to increase penis girth.

Clinical doctors often use hyaluronic acid, a safe filler often used for cosmetic procedures. This can be carefully inserted beneath the skin of the shaft and in the head of the penis to increase girth size. It can be done in less than an hour and requires no downtime. The best part is? The results can be seen instantly.

Penis fillers are 100% reversible and increase the girth size of the erect and flaccid penis. By using a substance naturally produced by the body, side effects are rare, and the results are natural looking and feeling.

As a result, clients can safely and effectively experience:

  • Increased penis girth size.
  • Improved quality of erections.
  • Enhanced sexual satisfaction for both partners.
  • Empowered confidence and body image.
  • All with no impact on fertility or long-term health.
