Ligamentotomy - surgical intervention for penis enlargement, advantages and disadvantages

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


Ligamentotomy is a surgical procedure for penis enlargement, characterized by cutting the suspensory ligament. The ligament is located deep in the pelvis and is attached to the bony apparatus, and can be long enough to cross it and enlarge the penis.

  • hypospadias and epispadias;
  • changes that manifest in the adulthood of a man;
  • prolonged sexual excitement and prolonged pathological erection;
  • reduced self-confidence due to insufficient penis size;
  • a man's individual desire to increase his masculinity.

Consultations with a plastic surgeon before ligamentotomy


Performing a ligamentotomy requires repeated consultations with the surgeon. During the visit, the doctor collects the patient's history, warns about the risks and effectiveness of the operation, and sends for diagnostics. You must go through:

  • fluorography;
  • tests for HIV, syphilis;
  • blood tests 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 drugs;
  • remove hair from the groin, genitals and scrotum.

Come to the ligamentotomy exactly at the appointed time with all the necessary documents and examinations.


The manipulation mechanism takes place 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 performed in two ways.

Through the pubis

At first, surgeons used this method. This technique is not positive due to numerous scars, trauma to the penis, and the duration of the intervention is more than 60 minutes. This type of ligamentotomy has several contraindications and negative factors, which is why it is no longer performed.

Through the scrotum

The surgeon makes an incision in the upper part of the scrotum. It dissects the ligament, after which it becomes possible to separate and expand the penis from the tissue. The doctor fixes the phallus in a new position. The penis is extended from the tunnel space using a specialized device - an extender. The cavity is filled with autologous fat. After that, stitches are applied. The duration of the surgical intervention is from 15 to 30 minutes.

During the healing period between the pubic area and the penis, a scar is formed that prevents the penis from returning to its place.


Manipulation is not a complicated process, so complications and side effects occur quite rarely. Rare cases may show:

  • suppuration and wound infection;
  • bleeding;
  • lack of results;
  • swelling of the penis;
  • deformation of male dignity;
  • erectile dysfunction;
  • hematomas;
  • reduced sensitivity of the penis;
  • formation of scars on the surface of the phallus.

If one of the symptoms appears, you must contact your doctor for help and elimination of deficiencies.


After the operation, the patient remains in a health facility under the supervision of medical staff.

In order to prevent negative painful and inflammatory processes, the patient is prescribed antibiotics, anti-inflammatory and painkillers. Medicines, duration, dosage and type of administration are determined by the doctor individually for each patient.

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

  1. Regular use of medicines according to the doctor's instructions.
  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 treatment of stitches.
  5. See your doctor.

After the operation, a special stretcher device is placed that 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 action and will not press or rub the scar. The duration of wearing is determined by the doctor, but not shorter than 21 days.

After three months, an extender is placed on the man's phallus. At first, the device is worn for a few hours, while the length increases. The daily wearing time has been increased to 8 hours a day. The length traction device must be used daily for at least 4 months. After two months, the result will be noticeable.

Wearing the extender and the duration of use is determined by the doctor individually for each patient, based on the structural characteristics and physiological characteristics of the man.

If all recommendations are followed and specialized devices are worn correctly, the result will be visible within six months. The manhood can be increased in length by up to 5 cm by cutting the ligaments and stretching the phallus.


Modern diagnostics and methods of performing operations do not cause serious disturbances, as well as pathological changes in the process of performing ligamentotomy. The procedure has a minimum of contraindications, but complications may arise due to improper work by the specialist:

  • phallus decreased or remained unchanged;
  • manifestations of rough epithelial tissue scars;
  • deformation of male dignity;
  • testicular swelling, testicular prolapse;
  • tissue death;
  • movement of hair in the groin to the phallus;
  • erectile dysfunction;
  • instability of the penis during sexual intercourse;
  • severe penile sensitivity or absence.
