Surgical technique for penis lengthening
The penis organ consists of a foremost section outside of the body (the visible part commonly referred to as the ‘penis’) and an internal section. The ratio between the external and internal sections is approximately 50:50.
The penis enlargement procedure involves a small incision (of approximately 3 cm in the pubic hair region) and restructuring of the front internal ligaments of the penis. The rear ligaments are left intact, thus maintaining lengthwise stability.
By inserting the patient’s own tissue sideways, we create a new anchor-point for the foremost section at the site of the actual lengthening using suture techniques and materials specially developed by us (no foreign tissue such as silicone or similar is used), which straightens the internal path of the penis that was previously sloped and bent.
We make use of a special geometrical feature here: By straightening the internal path of the penis we produce an extra length, in fact two extra lengths (a slope and a bend into a straight line), which combine to lengthen the penis. What we actually do is alter the ratio between the internal and external sections to enlarge the outer part, your visible ‘penis’.
In doing so, our surgical technique avoids contact with the penis root, the area in which the urethra, vessels and nerves enter into the penis, and leaves these unchanged.
The use of special materials and modified suture techniques ensures that any retraction forces from scarring that could influence the results are minimised as much as possible.
No incisions are made in the penis itself, thus avoiding any possible risks this could involve.
The amount that a penis can be lengthened depends on its current angle and length of the symphysis (the anchor-point to the pelvis), as well as the way that the ligaments are structured.
The existing area of skin covering the penis and scrotum is entirely sufficient to encompass the enlarged part of the penis. Our technique therefore avoids the need for skin grafts or tissue transfer.
Post-op care that may be required:
Patients whose tissue tends to scar excessively should wear a post-op stretching device for some time afterwards. You can find out more about the different applications available for your specific case in your consultation.
