Ligamentotomy - surgical intervention to enlarge the penis, pros and cons

Representatives of the stronger sex are almost always dissatisfied with the size of their maturity. To increase the length of the penis, they start using various drugs, ointments and creams. Desperate men undergo penis enlargement surgery - ligamentotomy. This procedure allows you to enlarge the penis by several centimeters.


Ligamentotomy is a surgical procedure to enlarge the penis, characterized by the intersection of the suspensory ligament. These ligaments are located deep in the pelvis and are attached to the bony apparatus, and can also be long enough to cross them and enlarge the penis. Ligament dissection allows the penis to be stretched using an extender, resulting in an increase in length of up to 5 cm.

Surgery is performed when:

  • penis length less than 12 cm;
  • cavernous fibrosis;
  • congenital pathological conditions of the virility;

  • hypospadias and epispadias;
  • visible changes in a man's adulthood;
  • prolonged sexual arousal and prolonged pathological erection;
  • decreased self-confidence with insufficient penis size;
  • a man's individual desire to increase his virility.

Consult with a plastic surgeon before ligamentotomy


To perform a ligamentotomy, repeated consultations with a surgeon are required. During the visit, the doctor collects the patient's medical history, warns about the risks and effectiveness of the operation, and also delivers a diagnosis. You have to go through:

  • fluorography;
  • HIV test, syphilis;
  • blood test for sexually transmitted diseases;
  • examination by a psychiatrist;
  • electrocardiogram;
  • general, biochemical analysis of blood, urine;
  • blood test for Rh, blood group;
  • diagnosis of the presence of hepatitis B and C;
  • bacteriological smear from the urethral canal;
  • consultation with an anesthesiologist, as well as, if necessary, visits to other specialists.

Surgical manipulation is prescribed in the morning. The night before surgery you should:

  • Avoid drinking alcoholic beverages and smoking;
  • limit food intake;
  • eliminate the use of medications;
  • remove hair in the groin area, genitals and scrotum.

Arrive for ligamentotomy exactly at the appointed time with all necessary documents and examinations.


The manipulation mechanism is carried out in several stages. Initially, the patient is given an anesthetic to relieve pain. During the consultation, the type of anesthesia will be discussed.

Surgical intervention is carried out in two ways.

Through the genitals

Initially, surgeons used this method. This technique is not positive due to the large number of scars, trauma to the penis, and the duration of the intervention is more than 60 minutes. This type of ligamentotomy has more contraindications and negative factors, so it is no longer performed.

Through the scrotum

The surgeon makes an incision at the top of the scrotum. This dissects the ligament, after which it is possible to separate and remove the penis from the tissue. The doctor fixes the phallus in a new position. The penis is removed from the tunnel space using a special tool - an extender. The cavity is filled with autologous fat. After that the stitches are applied. The duration of surgical intervention is 15 to 30 minutes.

During the healing period, a scar forms between the pubic area and the penis, so that the penis cannot return to its place.


The manipulation is not a complicated process, so complications and side effects are rare. Rare cases may show:

  • suppuration and infection of the wound;
  • bloody;
  • lack of results;
  • swelling of the penis;
  • deformation of male dignity;
  • erectile dysfunction;
  • hematoma;
  • decreased penile sensitivity;
  • formation of scar tissue on the surface of the phallus.

If any of the symptoms appear, you should contact your doctor for help and elimination of the defect.


After surgery, the patient remains in the health facility under the supervision of medical personnel.

To prevent negative pain and inflammatory processes, patients are prescribed antibiotics, anti-inflammatory and painkillers. Medicines, duration, dosage and type of administration are determined by the doctor individually for each patient.

Stitches are removed 7-8 days after the procedure. After discharge, the doctor determines the home regimen and wound care. Rehabilitation includes:

  1. Use medication regularly according to doctor's recommendations.
  2. Avoid sexual and physical activity for up to three weeks.
  3. Wearing special underwear that supports the penis in one position.
  4. Regular hygiene and seam maintenance.
  5. Visit your doctor.

After the operation, a special stretcher device is installed, which helps to keep the manhood in one position and does not allow it to return to its original position. It is characterized by a gentler effect and will not press or rub the scar. The duration of use is determined by the doctor, but not less than 21 days.

After three months, an extender was installed on the man's phallus. At first, the device is worn for several hours, while the length increases. Daily usage time increased to 8 hours a day. Long traction devices should be used daily for a minimum of 4 months. After two months the results will be visible.

The use of extenders and the duration of use are determined by the attending physician individually for each patient, based on the structural characteristics and physiological characteristics of the man.

If all recommendations are followed and the special device is used correctly, the results will be visible within six months. The manhood can be increased in length up to 5 cm by cutting the ligaments and stretching the phallus.


Modern diagnostics and methods of performing operations do not cause severe disorders, as well as pathological changes in the process of performing ligamentotomy. This procedure has a minimum of contraindications, but complications may arise due to incorrect work of specialists:

  • the phallus has shrunk or remained unchanged;
  • manifestation of coarse scarring on epithelial tissue;
  • deformation of male dignity;
  • testicular swelling, testicular prolapse;
  • tissue death;
  • transfer of groin hair to the phallus;
  • erectile dysfunction;
  • penile instability during sexual intercourse;
  • severe sensitivity of the penis or its absence.
Reducing the size of the penis is one of the complications of surgical intervention

If these symptoms occur, you should immediately contact a doctor to find out the cause and provide qualified assistance.

Before carrying out a surgical intervention, you need to visit several specialist doctors, make a complete diagnosis, find out all the risks and positive aspects, and then decide on plastic surgery. Monitoring of the clinic and the doctor performing the ligamentotomy is mandatory.

Penis enlargement surgery costs between $400 and $1, 300. The price varies depending on the medical institution, specialist, anesthesia.

Modern technology and techniques are the main advantages in carrying out operations. Manipulation is a new innovative way to enlarge the penis, so it should only be performed by modern and experienced doctors.

Penis enlargement using ligamentotomy allows you to increase its length by several centimeters and for the rest of your life. Increasing masculinity helps increase self-esteem, improve well-being and improve men's sex lives.
