Objectives: Increased penile circumference up to 5 cm with 10% polymethylmethacrylate (PMMA) in adults with penile circumference within the anthropometric curve.

Material and Methods: Use of PMMA (10%) in the 20 ml volume under local anesthesia (xylocaine), 20 days after postectomy and allergic test. Outpatient. Although polymethylmethacrylate was used by us 18 years ago to increase the circumference of the penis, in this study we followed the 64 patients who performed the procedure in 2015 (2 years). They answered the questionnaire by email, whatsapp or telephone, 23 patients (35.94%).

Results: All patients reported increased penis circumference. Earnings vary according to the table below:

Increase Percentage

No increase 0%

Increase of 1 cm 4.3%

Increase of 2 cm 8.7%

Increase of 3 cm 56.5%

Increase of 4 cm 17.4%

Increase of 5 cm 8.7%

Increase over 5 cm 4.3%

New applications were performed in 73.9% of the patients for new increases in circumference. There was no loss of erection quality, nor did the ejaculation pattern change in 100% of cases.There were no complications during the 2 years, 65.2% of the cases. Formation of small nodules in 30.4%. Allergy in 4.3% of respondents.

Conclusion: PMMA was effective in 100% of the patients who underwent the procedure of increasing the penile circumference up to 5 cm, volume dependent, low complication rate (rejection and infection, inflammation), no change in erectile quality or ejaculatory pattern. There is possibility of absorption when using caffeine, whay protein, steroids, cancer medications. The patient should be advised of this possibility before the first application. Post-procedure care is required (use of mechanical traction for 3 months 8 hours a day, interspersed every hour and 7 days of sexual abstinence). There is a possibility of cross-reaction with pathogens (viruses, bacteria), leading to potentially inflammatory and infectious processes in methacrylate. A product is required that does not absorb, form nodules and does not produce allergic reactions.
