Penis length surgery : Penis enlargement
This procedure takes around one to two hours to complete.
Your groin area will be shaved prior to surgery and anaesthesia will then be given. If you are not circumcised then a circumcision will be carried out as well to prevent any swelling of the foreskin.
The surgeon will make an incision just above the base of the penis. This will sever the ligament – known as the basal penile ligament -which runs from the pubic bone to the base of the penis.
This causes the penis to drop forward which increases its length by about 1 to 2 inches. But this increase differs between men.
The surgeon will re-attach this ligament lower down before grafting a flap of skin from this area and using it to cover the new extension. The incision is closed using dissolvable stitches although some surgeons prefer to use non-dissolvable stitches as well. These will need to be removed a couple of weeks following surgery.
Your penis will have been wrapped in surgical bandages which have to be replaced at regular intervals.
You need to bear in mind that the increase in length only applies to when the penis is flaccid. An erect penis will remain the same size but at a slightly different angle.
Post-surgery care involves taking painkillers, resting and avoiding exercise for a month following surgery. This is discussed in further detail in our recovery after penis enlargement surgery section.
