Ligamentotomy: description of technique. Patient reviews, before and after photos

Ligamentotomy is a plastic operation during which the outer part of the male penis is enlarged. This occurs due to cutting of the ligaments that hold the subcutaneous part of the corpora cavernosa in the inguinal area. After the procedure, the penis lengthens, and new connective tissues are formed at the site of the operation. Ligamentotomy is a simple and safe technique for penis enlargement. It is an excellent replacement for penile prosthesis, hardware penis enlargement and the use of expensive medications.

Characteristics of surgical phallus augmentation

Doctors recommend resorting to penile ligamentotomy in three cases:

  • when the length of the phallus is less than 12 centimeters and the man experiences difficulties in intimate life;
  • when the member begins to decrease with age;
  • when a person is dissatisfied with the size of his penis and is faced with psychological discomfort that interferes with normal relationships with the opposite sex.

Also an indication for surgery is micropenis, penile trauma and fibrosis.

What results to expect

When choosing this technique, you must know that in 100% of cases it helps to increase the size of the penis, but what the final result will be will be known only after surgery. This is due to the individual characteristics of the patient's body, ie the structure of his penis. Some men gain +1, 5 centimeters after the operation, while in others the phallus increases to 3 cm or more.

Ligament dissection in the inguinal region requires the use of spinal anesthesia. In this case, the man loses the sensitivity of all parts of the body below the waist. This method of pain relief is not suitable for people who have recently lost a lot of blood or are allergic to an anesthetic. Also, spinal anesthesia is contraindicated in such pathologies:

  • heart disease;
  • intracranial pressure;
  • blood clotting disorder;
  • neuralgic and mental illness.

The operation itself is not suitable for men suffering from venereal or urological infections, and for those who belong to the highest age category (over 60 years). In addition, the procedure will have to be abandoned in the presence of smoothed coronary sulcus, polyps in the urethral canal and oncology.

Bitan! If for some reason ligamentotomy is contraindicated, then you can use an alternative - hardware phallus stretching. To do this, you need to buy an extender.

Despite the fact that plastic surgeons call ligamentotomy a safe procedure, it can lead to many negative consequences. The most common problem that patients face is inflammation under the skin in the groin. This often happens due to insufficient sterilization of the surgical instrument or inexperience of the medical staff.

Other shortcomings of the technique include:

  • painful relationship;
  • long and awkward period of rehabilitation;
  • high probability of fertilizing seams;
  • difficulty urinating;
  • impaired erection (first month after surgery).

Preparation for the procedure

Penile ligamentotomy is a surgical intervention, before which the patient must undergo an examination. He was awarded:

  • general blood test;
  • chest fluorography;
  • ECG;
  • allergy test for anesthetics;
  • cardiogram of the heart;
  • general urine analysis;
  • Ultrasound of the pelvic organs (with suspicion of abnormal development of the penis or scrotum).

The man is also referred to a consultation with a psychologist. This is necessary to identify mental abnormalities that are contraindicated for the procedure.

If the patient's health is normal, then he is given a list of preparatory procedures. This list includes the following:

  • do not take alcohol or drugs the day before surgery;
  • in the morning, 5-6 hours before going to the clinic, it is forbidden to drink and eat;
  • before the operation, you have to put yourself in order - shave the inguinal area and take a bath.

Doctors also recommend that you do not take strong medications 2-3 days before the operation. This primarily applies to anticoagulants - drugs that inhibit blood clotting.

If it is not possible to temporarily stop taking any of these medicines, you should inform your doctor in advance.

How is penis enlargement surgery performed?

The duration of the operation is only 15-20 minutes. The procedure of cutting the inguinal ligaments is performed according to the following scheme:

  1. The patient is given spinal anesthesia, and the medical staff monitors his reaction;
  2. When the lower part of the body becomes insensitive, the surgeon makes a small incision next to the scrotum (about 1, 5-2 cm);
  3. Through the incision, the doctor touches the ligament ligament and cuts it with a scalpel;
  4. The surgeon then pulls the penis to an acceptable length. This is done slowly and carefully so as not to injure the cavernous tissues.

When the penis is stretched to the limit, the incision is sutured, and a sterile bandage is placed on top.

rehabilitation period

The next day after the operation, a stretcher is placed on the patient's genitals. Some call it a medical extender, but they have nothing in common. Stretchers must be worn constantly until the seams are removed.

After 14-20 days, new connective tissue will complete the formation between the severed corpora cavernosa and the pubic bone. The sutures are then removed at the clinic. At the same time, the man can get rid of the stretcher, but doctors still insist on wearing them 30-45 days after the operation.

At the end of the recovery period, a man can enter into intimacy, but in the beginning, you must be careful with your "dignity". New connective tissue is still sensitive and can be damaged during hard sex.

Bitan! During the rehabilitation period, the person should refuse to go to the beach. Until the scar heals, swimming in a public pond can cause wound infection and the appearance of an acute inflammatory process.

General recommendations

During rehabilitation, a man must adhere to the following rules:

  • it is necessary to monitor intimate hygiene and prevent infection from entering the wound on the skin left after surgery;
  • you must not have sex and use devices intended for masturbation or penis enlargement (vacuum pumps, extenders, etc. );
  • it is forbidden to treat the scar with creams, ointments and other cosmetic products;
  • the stretcher cannot be removed;
  • sterile bandage is changed 2-3 times a day;
  • you need to give up physical activity and switch to a healthy diet.

Where the operation is performed and how much it costs

Ligamentotomy is included in the list of services of any major plastic surgery center. This procedure is not performed in a city hospital.

The average cost of surgery is low and affordable for almost all segments of the population. If desired, the patient can order lipofilling. The essence of the service is to fill the penis with fat taken from the thighs, buttocks or abdomen of a man. This is an auxiliary technique that allows you to make the penis thicker, because a thin and long penis is ugly.

The final price of lipofilling is determined by the size of the penis that the client wants to get. A cheaper service is hyaluronic acid injection. In this case, an artificial filler is introduced under the skin of the phallus, as in lip augmentation.

Ligamentotomy or penile prosthesis - what to choose?

For men who want to have a penis, surgeons offer two options:

  • phalloprosthesis (implantation of a silicone implant in cavernous tissues);
  • ligamentotomy.

Both procedures are related to plastic surgery, but they differ in the principle of performance. According to doctors, they can be called an alternative to each other, but each of these methods has its advantages and disadvantages. For example, penile prosthetics give good results (sometimes the penis can be extended up to 7 centimeters), but it will not be able to return the penis to its previous shape, and the implant will have to be changed every 5-6 years. In turn, ligamentotomy is a quick and somewhat safe procedure, but to many its effect will seem insignificant.

Both methods are quite effective, so it is advisable to make a choice based on the required results. If you need to add a few inches, then the second option is suitable, and for a significant increase in the phallus, it is best to resort to the installation of a silicone implant.

Patient reviews

Male, 39 years old

For a long time, I could not decide to go under the surgeon's knife, but the positive reviews on the clinic's website and photos before and after contributed to the decision. The operation was performed quickly, without complications. The only thing that bothered me was the long recovery. It has been six months since my visit to the clinic. The scar healed, the doctor said that everything was fine, but sometimes during intercourse I feel a slight pain. I don't mind, but it's still embarrassing.

Boy, 26 years old

I did a ligamentotomy two years ago and I was satisfied. I was lucky, the penis lengthened by 4, 5 centimeters. Before that, I tried a bunch of drugs, bought an extender - all to no avail. In my opinion, it makes no sense to spend money anywhere, it is better to pay once, though a lot, but get the right result.

Male, 31

And the doctors offered me - or prosthetics or an incision in the ligaments. Unfortunately, I chose the first one. As a result, I faced a series of unpleasant consequences. First, the implant did not take root. I had to get it out. Second, when wearing the prosthesis, the tissues of the penis stretched, and when it was removed, the penis looked like a blown ball. To get everything back in place, I had to pay a large sum. There were 3 more plastic surgeries, lipofilling. Anyway, I regretted it a hundred times, it would be better to apply for a ligamentotomy immediately.
