Dr. Paul Edward Perito MD: Why Impotence Shortens the Penis

Genetics are a significant determining factor of penis size, but there are instances when a man’s penis grows shorter during his life. Radiation treatments for cancer, for instance, as well as Peyronie’s Disease can both negatively impact penile size. But research has also shown that impotence has a direct correlation with a decrease in penis size, and Dr. Paul Edward Perito MD, a Miami urologist, explains why.

Founder of Perito Urology, Dr. Paul Edward Perito MD has performed thousands of surgeries to treat erectile dysfunction. This research shows the importance of treating erectile dysfunction, Dr. Paul Edward Perito MD says. Over time impotence can have a negative effect on a man’s penis, with a loss of elasticity being partly to blame, explains Dr. Paul Edward Perito MD.

According to Dr. Paul Edward Perito MD, an erection stretches the tunica albuginea—the fibrous tissue that covers erectile bodies of the penis. When a man goes too long without an erection, Dr. Paul Edward Perito MD explains, that fibrous tissue is believed to lose elasticity.  The tunica albuginea has a direct correlation to achieving erection and to penis size and shape.

A metanalysis of several papers on the topic reveal that any man suffering from impotence could lose .5 to 5 cm’s every year and a half they manifest the disease.  Dr. Perito explains that nocturnal erections, erections occurring 6 to 10 times a night act to exercise the penis and keep it healthy.  The old saying “If you do not use it, you will lose it”, certainly applies here.  For men suffering from erectile dysfunction, Dr. Paul Edward Perito MD and others in his field are able to surgically implant an inflatable device that will restore patients to normal function in a matter of weeks. An added benefit to this surgery, Dr. Paul Edward Perito MD explains, is that patients will stretch the tunica albuginea and result in retention of penis size.

Lifestyle factors like smoking often play a role in both erectile dysfunction and penis size, Dr. Paul Edward Perito MD says. According to Dr. Paul Edward Perito MD, experts believe smoking can damage the blood vessels of the penis, just as it damages other blood vessels. But for Dr. Paul Edward Perito MD and his staff, it is of greater concern that smoking has been directly connected to erectile dysfunction. As Dr. Paul Edward Perito MD points out, men who smoke more than a pack of cigarettes per day are 50% more likely to suffer erectile dysfunction than non-smoking men. As always, patients should live a healthy lifestyle and refrain from behavior that might be detrimental to health, Dr. Paul Edward Perito MD concludes.
