User :   Ok

User :   Let me brief you.
User :   ok
User :   From the details provided by you, I do not find any symptoms indicating a growth or developmental problems.
User :   Penis size can vary among individuals.
User :   why so small
User :   what about tight clothing
User :   can that stop development
User :   A size of above 3.5 inches in the erect state is normal for a sexual function.
User :   can anything be done
User :   to increase size
User :   Tight clothing can affect the size of the penis, if such an exposure was around during times of puberty.
User :   yes it was
User :   At present, based on the evidence and scientific facts, an absolute increase in the size to a significant amount is unlikely.
User :   However straightening surgeries can be done, to relatively increase the size of the penis.
User :   u think the tight clothing could have stopped the development
User :   Such surgeries are beneficial in both length and girth.
User :   i was a teenager following the fashion
User :   Its difficult to predict, if the tightening of the clothes was the lone cause.
User :   would hormones help me
User :   increase size and girth
User :   You can get your testosterone and DHEA levels checked to make sure that there are no deficiencies.
User :   If any abnormality is detected, you might be put on supplements.
User :   would they increase penis size
User :   if there was a deiciancy
User :   If hormone deficiency is found, then there can be effective increase in size with the supplements.
User :   Please confirm your age?
User :   even after puberty
User :   45
User :   At your age of 45 as mentioned by you,
User :   the increase in both length and girth is difficult with hormones alone.
User :   can hormones still work
User :   You might need to consult a cosmetic surgeon for the needful.
User :   The surgery will give you long term benefits and results.
User :   Have you followed what I have suggested?
User :   does hormones not work after puberty
User :   to increase size
User :   The effectivity of the hormones on penis size is unpredictable after the age of 25 years.
User :   Hence, I would strongly recommend you to go ahead with evaluation by a cosmetic surgeon or an urologist.
User :   Both can perform the surgery for you.
User :   i should have went to doctors when i was teenager
User :   Have you followed what I have suggested?
User :   Surgery can help you at this age too.
