A man's penis stops growing around the age of 20. Most men are satisfied with the sizes that nature has gifted them with, while the rest of the male sex is looking for ways to enlarge their genitals. Various medications can be used (their main drawback is the numerous side effects), new-fangled technologies (extenders, pumps, etc. ), manual massages, stretching, etc. But only a part of men resort to the help of a plastic surgeon, who offers the patient a ligamentotomy - an operation to enlarge the penis.
Surgical penis enlargement: all the pros and cons
To understand the principle of male penis enlargement surgery, you should refer to information about the anatomical structure of this organ. Thus, the penis is supported by the pelvic area and is attached to it by a special ligament called a ligament. The purpose of the operation is to change the size of this ligament, which allows you to increase the size of the penis.
It seems that this technique allows us to solve many problems that arise due to the small size of the manhood (physically and psychologically). However, some risk factors for such manipulation should be taken into account:
- The possibility of injury to the patient or infection in his body during surgery.
- If the ligament ligament is too short, the intervention will not produce the expected effect.
- A penis that is not supported by a ligament is hypermobile. In addition, the suppression of the ligament leads to the fact that during an erection, the penis will be directed downward, and not forward or upward, as it usually happens.
- The specialist is not able to fully predict the results of the manipulation, as a lot depends on the patient's body and his compliance with the rules of the rehabilitation period.
Indications for ligamentotomy
Since penis enlargement surgery is a plastic procedure, there are no strict and definite indications for its application. However, in some cases it is simply necessary to perform genital enlargement, and the indications can be divided into two subgroups: medical and aesthetic.
- Micropenis (the so-called hidden penis).
- Cavernous fibrosis.
- Peyronie's disease. In this pathology, a deformation of the phallus is observed, reducing its size.
- A man's desire to increase his self-esteem.
- The desire to increase one's attractiveness.
- Penile dysmorphophobia. This condition is expressed in dissatisfaction with the appearance, including the penis.
The lower limit of the dimensions of the male reproductive organ is 12 cm (including the erection). A smaller value may be considered a reason for ligamentotomy.
There are several contraindications to the genital enlargement procedure, including:
- mental illness;
- impaired blood clotting.
The symptoms of these pathologies can worsen after surgery to enlarge the male penis.
Preparation for the operation
Before performing a ligamentotomy, the patient must undergo an examination consisting of the following:
- consultation with a urologist;
- blood tests (clinical and biochemical, for syphilis, hepatitis and HIV);
- consultation with anesthesiologist.
Before the ligamentotomy operation, you should stop eating and drinking for about 8-10 hours and remove vegetation from the groin area.
There are two types of penis enlargement surgery. One of them is characterized by a classic performance, the other includes the addition of elements of adipose tissue. However, according to expert reviews, the extension of the second type is carried out much less often than the first. Often the blood flow in the tissues is slow, which leads to various infectious complications.
In addition, ligamentotomy is divided according to the type of access. In this regard, it is much easier for the plastic surgeon to cut the ligament above the pubic bone. However, the intervention performed through the scrotum is considered much more painless and less dangerous. Penis enlargement surgery using this approach can take longer, involves a much larger incision, and leaves a noticeable scar in the pubic area. In addition, such an intervention damages tissues and fat tissue, making it difficult to continue wearing the aid. The price of the operation performed through the scrotum is higher, but the risk of complications is minimal, as well as the appearance of postoperative scars.
Ligamentotomy is performed under anesthesia (general or epidural). The total time from the beginning of the surgeon's manipulations to the patient's exit from anesthesia is 40-50 minutes. A bandage is applied to the place where the incision was made.
It is believed that the removal of the ligament that fixes the hidden inner part of the penis does not directly lead to an increase in the reproductive organ itself. The penis remains in place, and the cut ligament is only necessary for subsequent improvement of the result with the help of a special device - an expander. Thus, ligamentotomy has an extremely auxiliary character and requires the indispensable use of an expander in the future. It is also worth considering that the result depends on the immediate initial length of the penis. In other words, the ligamentotomy helps increase the size of the phallus, which is regulated by the extender, allowing it to act on the inside of the penis.
The day after the ligamentotomy, a special device called a stretcher is applied to the operated organ. Unlike the extender, it is used continuously until the stitches are completely removed after 12-14 days.
During the first three weeks after penile enlargement surgery, a man should follow the following recommendations:
- Refusal of sex, sports and intense physical activity.
- Constantly carrying a stretcher or a special weight - this method does not allow the penis to return to its original position.
- After the formation of the scar (after about 1-2 months), the stretching of the phallus continues with the help of an extender and lasts up to six months.
The duration of use of the extender is increased gradually. The first tangible and visually traceable results can be observed six months after the operation.
Recommendations for using the expander
After the ligamentotomy, the extender is placed over the penis to avoid pain and discomfort. An additional function of this device is to provide the necessary tension to the muscles and ligaments of the penis. New areas consisting of connective tissue are formed at the site of the cut ligament. Their future size largely depends on compliance with the recommendations for the postoperative period, including the systematic wearing of an expander.
In order for the device to work properly and have the maximum effect, you should keep in mind some tips for its use:
- The extender is placed on the penis only during the day and must be removed at night.
- Initially, the device is worn for 1. 5-2 hours per day. Gradually, the time increases to 5-6 hours.
- The expander is worn until a new ligament forms and takes its place to replace the cut ligament. As a rule, this takes from 3 to 7 months.
Modern extensions are made of latex or hypoallergenic plastic. For this reason, they are comfortable, practical and almost unnoticeable when worn.
A qualified specialist who has performed an operation to enlarge the penis, through his professional actions, eliminates all risks of possible problems after ligamentotomy.
In extremely rare isolated cases, the following complications are observed after such an intervention:
- deformation of the penis (it can also stand at an atypical angle or rise partially);
- suppuration of the suture placed after surgery;
- testicular infection;
- development of scars and adhesions;
- unstable erection;
- impaired sensitivity of the scrotum or penis.
Ligamentotomy is considered by most specialists in the field of urology to be a completely safe procedure. At the same time, the absence of possible problems both during the operation and during the rehabilitation period is noted.
Advantages of penile correction surgery
The main advantages of penile enlargement surgery include:
- Long lasting effect.
- Relatively quick rehabilitation.
- The ability to increase the penis not only in length, but also in thickness.

Which clinics perform penis enlargement surgeries?
Ligamentotomy of the penis is performed both in private clinics and in large urological centers.
How much does penis enlargement surgery cost?
The cost of the penis enlargement procedure starts at $315. The amount largely depends on several parameters, including the qualifications of the practicing surgeon, the quality of equipment available at the clinic, the cost of the extender, etc.
Thus, some elite clinics are equipped with the most modern equipment and offer patients comfortable rooms. In such establishments, you can extend your penis by paying $1, 270 or more.
When choosing a clinic where you plan to perform a ligamentotomy, you should carefully study not only the price policy, but also the work experience and qualifications of the doctor. It would also be a good idea to find reviews from real patients about the work of this specialist.
Reviews of men who underwent procedures for penis enlargement
Reviews of men who have undergone the ligamentotomy procedure are mostly positive. This is not surprising, since such an enlargement of the penis brings not only aesthetic results. A penis of the desired size improves a man's emotional comfort, removes obsessive complexes and improves the quality of intimate life in general.
"My 'little brother' was always small, which gave me terrible complexes and made it difficult to communicate with girls. Our town is small, only one clinic does procedures for penis enlargement, and that's where I went. Ligamentotomy was performed through the pubis, leaving a small scar. Afterintervention, the increase was about 2. 5 cm. The problem appeared after I was too lazy to wear the extender for the required time - instead of 3 weeks, I lasted only 2. The result is + 1. 5 cm, since the penis slightly returned to its original state. If I waswore the genital extender as much as i was told it would probably be more. "For almost 25 years, I was convinced that you have to live with what God gave (or nature, depending on who). In terms of penis size, to be honest, I wasn't given much. On the advice of a friend, I decided to do a ligamentotomy and I have never regretted it - I "grew" by another 4 cm, I am incredibly happy. Among the disadvantages, I can note that the process of wearing an expander is not very comfortable, but for the sake of "big" goals you can be patient, especially since it is temporary. "As a teenager, I kind of didn't deal with the small penis problem, I thought it was normal until I got a girlfriend. The sex was like that, but I wasn't worried - the main thing was the feelings and I had nothing to compare it to. But then we broke up, not quite civilly, and the last words of my former passion were about my unfortunate "friend" and the fact that she was not at all comfortable in bed with me. I must admit, this worried me. And althoughthe said can be attributed to a normal female bitch, for the first time I really looked at my penis size. And was unhappy. In the end I decided to enlarge my penis surgically. It took me two weeks to find a plastic surgeon and now, instead of my 12 cm, i am already 15 and i can see some penis thickening! i am dating another girl now, my sex life is great! my self esteem has increased to 100%. still the ligamentotomy is a great thing in terms of solving the small penis problem. "For a long time I could not find a permanent partner - the relationship did not work out because of my, frankly, small manhood. Of course, most of the ladies didn't tell me directly about my problem, but there were a few who did talk about it. And they also say that for women size doesn't matter, it really does! Eventually I found a suitable clinic and made an appointment with a doctor. Slight pain, discomfort and recovery period (not very long though) - all this is worth the result - now I have an impressive 18 cm, plus the thickness has started to increase! Relations with girls have already reached a qualitatively different level, and my previous complexes gradually disappeared. Ligamentotomy is a super procedure for anyone who has a "little brother" complex and whose goal is to boost self-esteem and have great sex!
