Penile Size Enhancement
Penuma Implant Improves Length and Girth
Have you heard of Penuma? It’s the first ever FDA-cleared device shown to successfully increase penile flaccid length as well as flaccid and erect girth of a man’s penis. It has been used in thousands of men since 2004.
Men who have had the Penuma procedure report improved self-esteem and a high rate of satisfaction with the look, feel, and function of their penis after the implant surgery.
Dr. Laurence Levine at UroPartners Urology Specialists is proud to offer his patients this unique and effective solution that can dramatically improve relationship and sexual satisfaction for men and their partners.
How Much Length, How Much Girth?
While individual results vary – and will depend on your current length and girth – the Penuma implant, on average, adds 1.5” – 2.5” in length and girth.
Depending on your needs, the Penuma implant is available in three sizes: large, extra-large, and extra-extra-large. Dr. Levine will determine the best size for you and can contour the implant to fit the specific shape and size.
The implant fits like a sheath over the top of your penis shaft, just under the skin, and contains no gel or liquid. The implant is designed to look and feel entirely natural, whether you are flaccid or erect.
What to Expect During the Procedure
The implant is made of soft, medical-grade silicone and is customized to fit the shape of your penis. It is put in place during a relatively simple outpatient procedure.
During the surgery, Dr. Levine accesses the shaft of your penis through a tiny incision on the side of your scrotum. This ensures you have no tell-tale scarring after your recovery.
The silicone implant is then placed under the skin of your penis, above the corpus cavernosa (the spongy erectile tissue at the top of the shaft that helps create an erection). The implant stretches skin and tissue in the area, which makes your penis look and feel longer and thicker – up to a 2.5” increase in flaccid length and flaccid and erect girth!
Advantages of the Penuma Penile Implant
Now, you can finally get the look, feel, and function you’ve always wanted. The advantages of choosing a Penuma penile implant are many and include:
- Natural look & feel, whether flaccid or erect
- Contoured to fit your penis shape
- Does not interfere with penis function or sensation
- No incision on the penis itself, so no risk of scar formation on the shaft
- Same-day surgical procedure and a quick recovery

The Penuma implant was created in the early 2000s. It subsequently received 510(k) clearance from the FDA. The safety and effectiveness of the Penuma implant was demonstrated in a large clinical study of more than 400 men, in addition to several case studies. Adverse events were few and similar to other silicone implant procedures.
Dr. Levine will choose the most appropriately sized implant for you. He can also contour it so that it best fits your individual penis shape.
The implant is made of soft, medical-grade silicone for a natural look and feel. The implant contains no liquid or gels. It is not reabsorbed by the body, like many injected substances used to improve penile size.
The implant is manufactured right here in the U.S., at an ISO-certified, FDA-registered facility.
As with any surgery, there are potential benefits and potential risks.
A retrospective clinical study approved by the Institutional Review Board (IRB) found that patients experienced high levels of satisfaction and increased levels of self-confidence and self-esteem as a result of the implant. There were very few adverse events reported – such as infection in 3% of cases and seroma in 5% of cases. Most often, these adverse events were due to patient noncompliance with post-op instructions.
Our medical staff will discuss all possible risks, complications, benefits, and alternatives (including no surgery), with you prior to the procedure.
The current total cost for the Penuma surgery is about $17,000. This includes fees for the surgical facility, anesthesia, and your surgeon. At UroPartners Urology Specialists, we work with several financing companies to ensure the implant can be cost-effective.
Many men we treat consider the implant a long-term investment in their overall well-being and quality of life.
Based on an IRB-approved clinical review of 400 patients over 5 years – and Dr. Levine’s own clinical experience – there were NO changes to penile function, the ability to achieve or sustain an erection, to ejaculate, or in penile sensation during sex.
A Penuma penile implant is not for everyone. If any of the following apply to you, you may not be a good candidate for the procedure:
- Uncircumcised penis
- Previous length or girth enhancement procedures using injections of fat or other grafts
- Uncontrolled diabetes
- Advanced Peyronie’s disease
- Current tobacco smoker
If you are unsure, ask Dr. Levine about whether the Penuma procedure is right for you.
