Surgery on the penis

Men often think about the question of what constitutes a surgical enlargement of the penis. It should be remembered that this intervention refers to methods of surgical treatment. Therefore, it is impossible to change the size of the organ for everyone who does not have an indication for such a procedure.

Penis enlargement surgery: How the penis is changed surgically

The normal size of an erect penis is 11-19 centimeters. A penis shorter than 10 centimeters is considered small, and a penis shorter than 5 cm is considered a micropenis (this is an anatomical pathology). With deviations from the norm, which interfere with normal life, the man is recommended plastic surgery. A man with normal male dimensions can also resort to the operation - although it is not necessary, there are no prohibitions, and everything is decided by the owner of the penis. In this article, we will tell you how it is performed, how much penis enlargement surgery costs, and what opinions are left by men who decide to undergo surgical resizing.

Changing the size of the penis by ligamentotomy

Now the main operation is the lengthening of the penis using the ligamentotomy method. At the same time, the size of the penis itself does not actually change, but it visually seems longer, as a centimeter redistribution takes place towards the visible part. This operation was first performed in 1990.

The surgical enlargement of the penis is carried out according to the following scheme:

  • The surgeon cuts the ligaments at the base of the penis.
  • It frees the corpora cavernosa to the point where the arteries enter them.
  • Fixes the corpora cavernosa in a changed position at the level of the cut ligaments.
  • After the surgical sutures are removed and the swelling subsides, the penis will be 3-5 cm longer.

There are several types of surgical intervention depending on the location of the incision (penis enlargement can be achieved through suprapubic, scrotal, subcoronary incisions). Which type is chosen depends on the morphological characteristics of the man's penis - this is determined after consultation with the plastic surgeon.

This does not mean that penis enlargement surgery is a simple and painless procedure. Plastic augmentation surgery is only performed under general anesthesia. If the patient has a contraindication to anesthesia, then this operation is not performed.

It should also be remembered that a few months after the operation, the penis must be fixed with a bandage or a plastic expander so that the ligaments remember the new position. The picture shows one of the options for the expander that can be worn with the combined method of penis enlargement.

"It hurts to lengthen the penis with surgery, will there be consequences? "many men ask. Read the reviews and make sure that the surgical procedure is not pleasant. The surgery itself, as already mentioned, is done under anesthesia, but after that the man has to endure pain (lasts a couple of days), and then unpleasant, unusualdiscomfort due to the condition. Ideally, the healing process will take at least two to three weeks. After the clamps or expander is removed, there may be some mild discomfort, and then everything will return to normal.

Insertion of the prosthesis into the organ

Another type of penis enlargement surgery is insertion of the prosthesis through a transverse incision in the albuginea (this penis enlargement surgery is also called a corporotomy). The enlargement of the penis is due to the fact that an obviously longer prosthesis is inserted into the intracavernous space. This leads to stretching of the penile skin. In order to enhance the effect, in addition to the operation to enlarge the penis, the tissues of the penis are also mechanically stretched (with a dilator).

Various "components" can be used as implants. For example, many clinics now use silicone implants that increase the length of the penis by 5 centimeters. The implant is inserted through a small incision in the groin. The entire procedure is performed under local anesthesia.

Recovery after such surgery takes several weeks. A man can walk and sit within 4-5 days, but the erection returns only after 1-2 months.

There is also a downside to the introduction of a silicone implant - it may not be able to take root after the operation. To avoid this, surgical augmentation can be ordered, in which fat is pumped in instead of an artificial implant. Adipose tissue is the most natural and safest type of penile filler. It is 100% compatible with male tissue, which minimizes the risk of inflammation. It does not move after insertion (the fat implant is stable), and it also looks the most natural.

The surgical enlargement of the penis with the help of a certain amount of fatty tissue has additional advantages - recovery after the operation takes about 5-6 days, and the result is immediately visible. According to the doctors, the surgery allows to increase the size of the penis by up to 40% - it can be a surgery to thicken and change the length of the penis at the same time.

The downside is that some of the fat cells dissolve after a year or two, and the skin begins to accumulate due to stretching and cavities. It's not very pretty - you have to have an additional cosmetic procedure to pump in new fat or cut away the sagging skin.

Changing the size of the penis according to the Perovich method

Operations aimed at increasing the penis with the method of Savva Perovich is a complex procedure, but it allows you to achieve tangible changes in the size of the male penis. Penis enlargement surgery is performed under general anesthesia. The scheme of the procedure is as follows:

  • The surgeon cardinally divides the organ into its constituent parts - the doctor surgically separates the corpora cavernosa along the entire length of the hanging part of the male penis (from the spongy body to the glans penis).
  • Pieces of a man's rib cartilage are placed between the cavernous bodies and the head, or an artificial (silicone or helium) prosthesis is inserted.
  • As a result, the elements of the penis are lengthened to the desired size (maximum - up to 7 centimeters).

It is worth doing this enlargement operation, only after careful consideration of the advantages and disadvantages, it is impossible to restore the penis to its previous state after surgery. It is also worth preparing for a long recovery period. For example, a full erection after surgery returns only after 2-3 months.

Lipophilization of male dignity

Lipofilling of the male penis is a microsurgical, non-invasive procedure that does not require open incisions. This penile enlargement surgery involves the intermittent subcutaneous injection of the patient's own tissue. It is not used to increase the length - it can only be used to correct the diameter of the penis (by 5-15 millimeters). The material required for the procedure is extracted by liposuction from places of excessive deposition in the male body: in the suprapubic zone, hips, abdomen, buttocks.

Since this is actually not a penis enlargement surgery, but rather a cosmetic procedure, recovery is quick. A man stays in the hospital for only one day and is then discharged, but the patient must abstain from sex for 4-5 weeks.

The disadvantage of the procedure is that, like fat grafting, the result will not last forever. During the procedure, the tissue injected into the penis tends to dissolve. You will need to repeat the injections every two to three years.

Transplantation of muscle tissue from the abdominal cavity

There is another type of surgery that can be used to enlarge the penis - the muscle flap transplant. As a starting material, a part of the rectus abdominis muscle of a man is used, next to which there are fragments of the vascular system. During the operation, the muscle is pulled back towards the penis, where it is attached to the natural tissues.

Summarize. In the article, we listed the main methods of surgically enlarging the penis. Many men are thinking about this, but they must remember that augmentation surgeries can be successful and complications can occur, so you need to weigh the pros and cons before getting on the surgeon's table. In half of the cases, no surgery is needed and the man's size is normal (lengthening or increasing the thickness is just a whim). Despite this, the doctors' opinions are unanimous: the operation should only be performed according to medical prescription - but the man still decides on surgical penis enlargement.
