Ligamentotomy - surgical intervention to enlarge the genital organ, pros and cons

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


Ligamentotomy is a surgical operation to enlarge the penis, characterized by the transection of the suspensory ligament. The ligament is located deep in the pelvic cavity and is attached to the bony apparatus and may also be long enough to pass through it and enlarge the penis. The rupture of the ligament allows the penis to be lengthened by means of an extension, resulting in an increase in length of up to 5 cm.

The operation is performed in the following cases:

  • changes that manifest themselves during the man's puberty;
  • long-term sexual arousal and long-term pathological erection;
  • decreased self-confidence due to insufficient penis size;

Consultation with a plastic surgeon before ligamentotomy


A repeat consultation with a surgeon is necessary to perform a ligamentotomy. During the examination, the doctor collects the patient's medical history, warns about the risks and effectiveness of the operation, and also sends for diagnostics. You need to pass:

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

Surgical manipulation is prescribed in the morning. The evening before the operation you will need:

  • Avoid alcohol and smoking;
  • limit food intake;
  • eliminate the use of drugs;
  • remove hair from the pubic area, genitals and scrotum.

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


The manipulation mechanism is implemented in several stages. First, the patient is given anesthesia to relieve pain. The type of anesthesia will be discussed during the consultation.

Surgical intervention is performed in two ways.

Through the pubis

At first, surgeons used this method. This technique does not give positive results because of numerous 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, as a result of which it is no longer performed.

Through the scrotum

The surgeon makes an incision at the top of the scrotum. It breaks the ligament, after which the penis can be separated from the tissues and extended. The doctor fixes the phallus in a new position. The penis is extended through the tunnel cavity using a special device - an expander. 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, a scar forms between the groin and the penis, preventing the penis from returning to its original position.


Manipulation is not a complicated process, so complications and side effects occur very rarely. In rare cases, it may show the following:

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

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


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

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

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

  1. Regular use of medicines as prescribed by the doctor.
  2. Avoid sexual and physical activity for up to three weeks.
  3. Wearing special underwear that holds the penis in one position.
  4. Regular hygiene and sewing treatment.
  5. Visit your doctor.

After the operation, a special stretcher is worn, which helps to keep the penis in one position and does not allow it to return to its original position. It is characterized by a softer effect and will not press or rub the scar. The wearing period is determined by the doctor, but it should not be less than 21 days.

After three months, an expander is inserted into the man's phallus. First, the device is worn for several hours, its length is increased. The daily usage time is increased up to 8 hours a day. The length traction device should be used daily for at least 4 months. After two months, the result will be noticeable.

The duration of wearing and using the expander is 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 special devices are used correctly, the result will be noticeable within six months. The length of the penis can be increased up to 5 cm by cutting the ligaments and lengthening the phallus.


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

  • phallus reduced or unchanged;
  • manifestations of rough scarring of the epithelial tissue;
  • deformation of male dignity;
  • swelling of the testicles, prolapse of the testicles;
  • tissue death;
  • displacement of pubic hair on the phallus;
  • erectile dysfunction;
  • instability of the penis during sexual intercourse;
  • severe penile sensitivity or lack thereof.

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

Before surgical intervention, you should consult several specialists, make a complete diagnosis, learn all the risks and advantages, and then decide on plastic surgery. Monitoring of clinics and doctors performing ligamentotomy is mandatory.

The price of penis enlargement surgery varies between 400-1300 dollars. The price varies depending on the medical institution, specialist, anesthesia.

Modern technologies and techniques are the main advantage in conducting the operation. Manipulation is a new innovative way to enlarge the penis, as a result of which it is performed only by modern, experienced doctors.
