For more than 40 years, men with congenital penile anomalies or post-operative problems after penile cancer or Peyronie’s disease surgeries, or any kind of trauma (men accidentally or deliberately amputated) have been given the opportunity to undergo penile enlargement operations.
In the US, plastic surgery for penis enlargement emerged at the end of 80th decade. Over 10,000 men have undergone this operation so far; yet, no data on the results and possible side effects has been published subsequently in magazines approved by independent experts for example. Actually, this fact is very amazing, as well as quite uncanny, considering the huge number of surgical interventions that have been carried out.
Penis Enhancement: The most frequent technique to increase the size of the penis consists of cutting the suspensory ligament and then resort to cosmetic surgery to cover the extended part of the penis
The outcomes of such surgery are difficult to assess because the data have not systematically been collected by the practitioners. However, it is demonstrated that just dividing the suspensory ligament increase penis length of circa 0.5 cm on average vs. up to 1.6 cm for skin advancement. Obviously better results can be obtained depending on surgeons and some private clinics also achieve better outcomes according to their advertising pledge.
The mission of the suspensory ligament is to help the penis remain erect. But once cut it can no longer uphold the penis. For certain men this surgery increases the length of the penis at rest to a couple of centimeters, but leads to no significant change in erection, except for one thing: the penis is still straight but points down!
Penis girth enlargement is a procedure that can be carried out with a lengthening surgery or by itself. The two following techniques are frequently performed:
Injecting fat from abdominal wall liposuction under the penis furrow.
Transplanting dermis grafts (from the layer of skin beneath the epidermis with significant bloodstream) and fat from the thighs in the penis furrow.
Many times, only disappointing outcomes can be obtained after a fat injection surgery. Only 10% of the fat will remain after a year. Even though grafts appear to be a better deal, no reliable data on long-term outcomes have ever been published.
