It's a myth

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for using Healthcare Magic for posting your query.
I have gone through your question and I can understand what you are going through.
Penis length doesn't change with change in abdominal weight. It's only that apparently it looks a bit more prominent on loosing weight. Otherwise it is covered under the belly. It's advised to loose weight to people with obesity, who have a small penis... So that it starts liking bugger. But there in snow actual change in size.
Kind regards
