A man who has ‘Britain’s largest penis’ says the accolade comes with a number of problems but he doesn’t plan on getting size reduction surgery. 

Matt Barr, 40, a Cambridge university graduate, first realised he had a bigger penis (measuring in at more than 12 inches) than his peers during showers after PE at school. 

But being so well-endowed has actually come with a whole host of problems, including difficulties while dating, and people getting the wrong idea during a yoga class. 

However, penis reduction surgery is very rare, complicated and expensive – and is usually only carried out for medical reasons.  

During an appearance on This Morning on Tuesday, when host Ben Shephard asked if Matt had considered having an operation to minimise the size of his penis, he explained that he likely wouldn’t.

Matt explained: ‘I have looked into this – it’s very expensive surgery, it costs about £15,000 roughly. 

‘It’s not done very often. It’s only done normally, in the cases of tumours and things like that. In the case of normal function, it’s not common.  

‘It’s difficult, because it’s not something you really spring on people as a surprise, because it just does scare people away generally. 

‘But obviously [you don’t want to be] creepy and bring it up too early. [So] how you start that conversation?’

Reduction corporoplasty is a highly specialised procedure used to reduce the girth and length of a penis. 

Matt, who is in the top 0.01% cent of penis sizes, previously appeared on Channel 4 programme ‘My Massive C***’ where he discussed his surgery options with Dr Nenad Djakovic, a specialist in urology. 

He said he’d always wondered about what life would be like if he lost three or four inches from his length.  

But after he was told that even losing an inch from his penis could be ‘life-changing’, he decided against getting surgery.

Dr Djakovic explained that the surgery would take place while he was erect that they would amputate the amount he wanted gone before reconstructing it. 

Matt asked if he could be reduced to nine inches, and have a couple of inches taken away from the girth. 

‘We can’t do a salami technique,’ the doctor said. ‘Once you’ve had the surgery, that’s it.

HOW DOES PENIS REDUCTION SURGERY WORK? 

Penis reductions are incredibly rare, complicated and expensive. 

The first instance only occurred in the US in 2015 – and they have been few and far between ever since. 

In this case, surgeons embarked on a surgical technique normally used to treat Peyronie’s disease, a condition where scar tissue develops along the penis, causing it to bend. 

The surgeons sliced along an old circumcision scar, unwrapped the skin of the penis, and cut out two segments of tissue from either side. 

The doctors were able to bypass the urethra – the tube which carries urine through the penis – and all of the nerves that provide sensation.

Dr Nenad Djakovic, a urologist, told Channel 4’s ‘My Massive C***’ that they would make the penis erect and then amputate the desired amount. 

Once complete, they would reconstruct it for the final look.  

‘First of all, you should know that they are performed very seldomly because there are no clear statistics regarding success rate nor a clear statistic regarding the complication rate.

‘Per year we have two or three patients performing this type of surgery.’

Matt told the Metro: ‘It’s super rare actually. It can lead to poor erectile health afterwards, it’s visually unappealing because of the way they cut away at it – you’re left with stitches and scars – and it’s a very severe choice.

‘If I was in a long term relationship I’d want that to be an option we could pursue, but you also have the thought of “what if I get a reduction and then I meet someone who would really like [me] when [I] was big?”.’

Sometimes, Matt has even felt light-headed when wearing a condom and has struggled to find one that fits him.  

While many men around the world have requested enlargements from their plastic surgeons, having the size of a penis reduced is much rarer. 

Where reduction surgery can cost £15,000, enlargement surgery costs around £3,000 at its cheapest. 

In 2015, a 17-year-old boy became the world’s first patient to undergo penis reduction surgery. 

The American teen requested the surgery after his penis grew too large and meant he found it difficult to have sex or play competitive sports. 

It measured seven inches in length with a circumference of 10 inches while flaccid. It didn’t actually grow while erect, but just became firmer.  

His surgeon, Rafael Carrion, a urologist at the University of South Florida, said they decided to embark on a surgical technique normally used to treat Peyronie’s disease, a condition where scar tissue develops along the penis, causing it to bend.

The surgeons sliced along an old circumcision scar, unwrapped the skin of the penis, and cut out two segments of tissue from either side.

Dr Carrion told MailOnline previously: ‘Lord knows there’s a global race on how to make it longer and thicker in plastic surgery circles, but very little on how to make it smaller.

‘It was a bit like having two side tummy-tucks – that’s how we explained it to him.’ 

The doctors were able to bypass the urethra – the tube which carries urine through the penis – and all of the nerves that provide sensation.

The teenager spent just two days in hospital before returning home, apparently ‘ecstatic’ with his new penis.

The doctors did not take final measurements of the penis, although Dr Carrion told MailOnline the result was ‘generous’.

‘It’s slightly longer and slightly thicker than the average male, but now it looks symmetrical, and the patient was very satisfied,’ he said.

The teen now has no problem having normal erections and has full sensation.

‘It looks cosmetically appealing, and he said it was a life-changing event, he’s all smiles,’ said Carrion.

Whereas the first teenager had an obvious medical condition that needed treating, performing surgery on someone who is completely healthy but having difficulties with the size of his penis is another matter, said Dr Carrion.

‘These are controversial waters we’re stepping in,’ he added. ‘Who is to judge what is a legitimate complaint and what isn’t?

‘You don’t normally have men complaining about this kind of thing. These are very unique cases.’

In the case of the 15-year-old, he had suffered from several bouts of priapism – and unwanted erection – which caused his penis to swell up, leaving it bloated and misshapen.  

In Matt’s case, he said he’d always had a bigger penis, but that he’d first noticed it aged 12 when getting changed in PE.  

And he said that despite the myth that bigger is better, as a shy youngster, he wanted to be ‘normal’ like his peers.

In addition, he added, the size of his penis comes with its own set of problems, including difficulties when he was dating.

He added that the size of his penis had got him into trouble once during a yoga class, when he was asked to leave as it was thought he was aroused due to the size of his appendage.

According to Matt: ‘I was wearing a very baggy shirt and shorts [but because of the] yoga positions, people just got the wrong idea. 

‘And that’s the way it sometimes goes, but you can you can dress normally, baggy clothing, and it’s not too difficult.’

But that wasn’t the worst experience he has had  – describing a worse situation, Matt revealed that once he went on a date, during which the woman he was seeing had an ‘ulterior motive’.

While Matt thought it was a ‘normal date’, it turned out he’d been asked out by the woman as she wanted him to appear on her OnlyFans and use him to make money.

With his penis measuring at more than 11 inches, Matt is more than double average size, which in the UK is 5.2 inches while erect.  

Speaking about Matt’s situation, Ben noted that ‘people are very mistaken about what benefits and gives you in life’ – and that it must be tricky for Matt to talk about, as he is quite shy and it’ an intimate subject. 

According to Ben: ‘It’s fascinating, because you can you can imagine that the majority of people watching will be going “what an absolute gift to be able to stand there and have more than more than enough”. 

‘Would you say having a smaller penis would mean you’d be happier than having you big one?’

Matt jokingly replied that there are more positive qualities a person can have, like ‘the good looks of Ben Shephard’.

Discussing how tricky it is discussing the intimate topic as someone who is shy, he said: ‘I’m trying to dispel some of the stigmas. 

‘I don’t see why there’s any difference talking about this and talking about your breasts or any other bodily part…it’s not sexualised. It’s just a fact of life.’

In the Channel 4 documentary, he described a ‘degrading’ experience where an ex-girlfriend had made him use a penis pump so he would be even larger than usual. 

She would then enjoy looking at him while they were doing mundane activities like playing scrabble or watching TV. 

Matt said he was ‘treated like a piece of meat’, especially when she said images of him around without his consent. 

To discuss the issue further, Matt has written a book about his predicament, titled A Long Story: Life With One Of The World’s Largest Penises.

While he has no specific release date as of yet, he revealed it is likely to hit shelves next year. 

The world’s largest penis is thought to belong to Robert Esquivel Cabrera from Mexico, who has a manhood measuring in at 18.9 inches.
