The Doctors welcome urologist Dr. Aaron Spitz, the author of "The Penis Book," to discuss genital enhancement and it's possible risks. In one study, researchers found that people who underwent the procedure were not satisfied and suffered complications like deformity and in some cases even a shortening!

Dr. Spitz says most men have unrealistic expectations about size due to pornography. He says some treatments that use fillers to increase size can be successful for some men, but Dr. Spitz warms that in many cases -- that are not carefully planned -- the enhancement can lead to "lumpy, bumpy, abnormal" results.

So what is normal when it comes to penis size? Dr. Spitz explains the average size for men worldwide is just a little over 5 inches. He stresses that the majority of men are adequate when it comes to size and says they should not stress about adding length. 

And when it comes to dealing with the medical condition of having a micropenis, which only affects less than 2 percent of the population, Dr. Spitz says the vast majority of men who measure under 4 inches actually report having a satisfying and fulfilling sex life. 

Clinical psychologist Dr. Judy Ho also notes that 85 percent of women reported being pleased with the size of the man's penis.
