Surgical penis lengthening
Surgical penis lengthening and enlargement
During a surgical penis enlargement (penis augmentation), normally, the lateral ligament between the pubic bone and the cavernous body is cut
(ligamentum suspensorium penis) and the gap fills with endogenous tissue. Artificial substances, such as silicone have not proven effective for
this medical procedure.
Often, this penis surgery is carried out under general anesthetic, yet due to continuous research and development in this sector, sometimes outpatient.
Besides the risk of the conventional surgical penis lengthening, there is also a risk of loss of sensation of the penis.
Results of the surgical penis lengthening
The results vary greatly, dependent on the method used. Almost all methods result in a higher increase in size of the non erect penis compared to the erect penis. To strengthen and train the penile tissue after the surgery, normally a penis lengthening device is prescribed.
Costs for the surgery
As with most aesthetic surgeries, the insurance companies do not cover the cost for the procedure. The cost for a surgical penis enlargement is usually in high four digit range (Euros).
