Penile Dysmorphic Disorder: When Penis Size Concerns Get Out Of Control

Penile Dysmorphic Disorder: When Penis Size Concerns Get Out Of Control

The penis tends to be the most common part of the body that men are dissatisfied with and wish they could change.

As a result of this social pressure, guys are increasingly going under the knife in order to enhance the size of their packages. But do these surgeries work as promised and are they worth the exorbitant costs?

Breast augmentation is one of the most popular forms of cosmetic surgery in the United States, with hundreds of thousands of women opting for this procedure each year. Likewise, the penile enlargement industry is booming, with pills, creams, surgeries, and stretching devices flooding the market. So how do men and women really feel about their own bodies?
