Penis enlargement surgery: types, effectiveness of the intervention

penis enlargement surgery

Absolutely every man can increase the size of the penis with the help of surgery. However, surgery can have negative consequences. Sometimes the most reliable procedure to increase the length or thickness of a man's body can result in such an unpleasant surprise. It is possible to enlarge the penis without surgery. There are many proven techniques available today, but if their application does not yield serious results, surgery comes to the rescue.

What are penis enlargement surgeries?

Surgery is used to both increase the length and thickness of the penis. In the first case, ligamentotomy, the most common operation in the world, is performed (removal of the hanging ligament of the phallus). After undergoing surgical manipulations, the man waits for a long course of rehabilitation. Up to six months, the result of genital elongation is corrected by wearing an extension.

As for the increase in penis diameter, lipofilling is used among the common methods. Thickening occurs by injecting fatty tissue under the skin of the penis. Unfortunately, this procedure is short-lived. As a rule, about half of the injected adipose tissue is absorbed in the first year after surgery. Such a plastic method minimizes the risk of allergic reactions, but does not exclude the development of inflammatory processes with subsequent complications.

Muscle tissue transplantation. Unlike lipofilling, such an operation to increase the thickness of the penis keeps the result for a long time. However, we are talking about microsurgical transplantation, which is explained by the complexity of the intervention. The use of a muscle cap minimizes the risk of rejection of the implanted natural material while maintaining the blood supply process.

Another way to enlarge the penis is with a falloprosthetic. This method is used for sexual dysfunction and small penis. The role of the prosthesis is played by special elastic and elastic materials, the accumulation of cartilage tissue. Inflatable implants allow you to adjust the level of the upright position. Given the complexity of the surgery, it is easy to understand that it will require large financial outlays.

Penis enlargement with ligamentotomy

As already mentioned, the operation consists of dissecting the hanging ligament of the phallus. Previously, the operation could take up to 90 minutes, and there was a scar at the incision in the pubic area. Currently, the intervention is performed through the scrotal area. As a result, the duration of the operation is reduced to 15 minutes, and the incision heals without a trace, so it is practically impossible to recall the operation.

The non-erect penis extends a few centimeters due to the intersection of the supporting ligament that goes to the depths of the pelvis. The effectiveness of the operation depends directly on the length of the ligament. To finally correct the result, it is necessary to wear an extension for a long time, as a rule, up to six months.

On the one hand, ligamentotomy looks like a simple and quick operation, on the other hand, due to the rupture of the ligament, the penis will move downwards, the angle of erection will be lost. The base of the phallus will be more mobile, so it will not be directed upwards during arousal. It is known that the man faces additional difficulties by releasing the hidden part of the penis in the pubic area. The cost of a ligamentotomy can actually be much higher than what plastic clinics describe.

Lipofilling is a relatively simple surgical procedure aimed at increasing the diameter of the penis. Liposuction removes fat from the abdomen or hips, after which the biological material is injected evenly into the subcutaneous tissue of the phallus with a needle. This procedure does not require a long recovery period.

Thanks to lipofilling, the diameter of the penis increases by one centimeter. However, the procedure must be repeated over time, because the adipose tissue is absorbed. And it becomes uneven, which causes a bulging shape to appear on the penis. At the same time, it is not recommended to inject as much oil as possible, as it can cause side effects.

Muscle transplantation can have long-term results, but there is still a risk of musculoskeletal valve necrosis applied under the subcutaneous tissue. You should take into account that scars remain after removing material from the back or other part of the body. With the successful implementation of a complex surgical procedure, the thickness of the penis can be increased up to 4 centimeters. This result is certainly impressive, but high quality can be guaranteed only by a true microsurgery specialist.

Penis measurement after surgery

He also performs penis enlargement with the help of plastic surgery, synthetic gels, pastes and fluids.

Such methods are rarely used because of the increased risk of material rejection and uncontrolled distribution. Therefore, experts recommend using your own biological material to increase the thickness of the penis through surgery.

Implantation of absorbable collagen matrix. Harmless materials are used during surgery. Blood cells from a human are placed in a special incubator, which is then placed in a collagen matrix.

After implantation, active cell division is observed, which leads to the growth of connective tissue. Resorption of the matrix occurs in parallel. However, an expensive operation does not guarantee maximum tissue growth, so it can be repeated.

Advantages and Disadvantages of Penis Surgical Enlargement

The man is surprised by the size of the penis after the operation

Penis lengthening or thickening is considered completely safe, but last year such surgery was fatal. It happened to a 30-year-old Swede who planned to make his manhood not only longer but also thicker. One day, the specialists performed a ligamentotomy and then began lipophilicity. My heart failed during the injection of fat. An increase in heart rate led to a heart attack. Resuscitation did not help save the patient. It was later determined that the death was caused by a fat embolism. According to experts, performing two operations on the same day can lead to such a terrible thing.

Surgical penis enlargement involves even the smallest risks that no one is immune to. According to patients, ligamentotomy can achieve the desired result with a long-lasting ligament, but to achieve this it is necessary to go through a long postoperative course with the use of an extender.

Advantages and disadvantages of penis enlargement surgery:


  • be close to the maximum or desired result;
  • the effect of surgery lasts a lifetime (ligamentotomy, muscle tissue transplantation);
  • save personal time, excluding possible recovery periods;


  • the transaction involves significant financial costs;
  • in the case of ligamentotomy, you should use an expander to strengthen the result;
  • can be rejected during tissue transplantation and implantation;
  • there is a risk of infection with any operation;
  • lipofilling should be repeated to maintain thickness and proper shape;
  • after ligamentotomy, the penis falls, the angle of erection changes;
  • surgery can adversely affect the sensitivity of the phallus.
