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

Ligamentotomy is a plastic surgery in which the outside of the male penis is enlarged. This is due to the incision of the ligaments that hold the subcutaneous portion of the cavernous bodies in the groin zone. After the procedure, the penis lengthens and new connective tissue is formed at the surgical site. Ligamentotomy is a simple and safe penis enlargement technique. It is an excellent replacement for penis prosthesis, hardware penis enlargement and the use of expensive medications.

Characteristics of surgical enlargement of the phallus

Doctors recommend using a ligamentotomy of the penis 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 faced with dissatisfied penis size and a mental discomfort that disrupts normal relationships with the opposite sex.

Also surgical indications are micropenis, penile trauma, and fibrosis.

What results are expected

When choosing a technique, you should know that it will help increase the size of your penis in 100% of cases, but what will be the end result will only be known after the surgery. This is due to the individual characteristics of the patient's body, or rather the structure of his penis. Some men get +1. 5 centimeters after surgery, while others grow their phallus to 3 cm or more.

Dissection of the ligament in the groin region requires spinal anesthesia. In this case, the man loses the sensitivity of the 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 anesthetics. In addition, spinal anesthesia is contraindicated in such pathologies:

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

The surgery itself is not suitable for men with a sexually transmitted or urological infection, or for those in the highest age group (over 60 years). In addition, the procedure should be discontinued in the presence of a smoothed coronal furrow, polyps in the urethral canal, and oncology.

Important! If, for some reason, ligamentotomy is contraindicated, you can use an alternative — hardware stretching of the phallus. To do this, you need to buy an extension cord.

Underwater rocks

Although plastic surgeons call ligamentotomy a safe procedure, it can have a number of negative consequences. The most common problem that patients face is subcutaneous inflammation in the groin. This is often due to insufficient sterilization of the surgical instrument or inexperience of the medical staff.

Other disadvantages of the technique are:

  • painful intercourse;
  • long and unpleasant rehabilitation period;
  • there is a high probability of suture accumulation;
  • difficulty urinating;
  • weakened erection (in the first month after surgery).

Preparation of the procedure

Penile ligamentotomy is a surgical procedure that requires the patient to undergo an examination. Who is assigned to:

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

The man is also referred for a psychological consultation. This is necessary to identify mental disorders that are contraindicated in the procedure.

If the patient's health is normal, you will receive a list of preparatory procedures. This list includes:

  • do not drink alcohol or drugs the day before surgery;
  • in the morning, 5-6 hours before going to the clinic, do not drink or eat;
  • you need to put yourself in order on the eve of the surgery - shave your groin and take a bath.

Doctors also recommend that you do not take strong medications for 2-3 days before surgery. This is especially true for anticoagulants - medicines that prevent blood clotting.

If you are temporarily unable to stop taking any of these medicines, you should tell your doctor in advance.

How is penis enlargement surgery performed?

The operation takes only 15-20 minutes. The procedure for notching the groin strips is carried out according to the following scheme:

  1. The patient receives spinal anesthesia, and the medical staff monitors his reaction;
  2. When the lower body becomes numb, the surgeon makes a small incision next to the scrotum (about 1, 5-2 cm);
  3. Through the incision, the doctor feels the bandage and cuts it with a scalpel;
  4. The surgeon then pulls the penis to an acceptable length. This should be done slowly and carefully so as not to damage 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 day after surgery, the patient is placed on a stretching device - a stretcher. Some call it a medical filler, but they have nothing in common. The stretcher should be worn until the stitches are removed.

After 14-20 days, the formation of new connective tissue between the severed cavities and pubic bone is complete. The sutures are then removed at the clinic. However, a man can get rid of a stretcher, but doctors still insist on wearing it for 30 to 45 days after surgery.

At the end of the recovery period, a man may get into intimacy, but first he has to be careful with his "dignity. " The new connective tissue is still sensitive and can be damaged during hard sex.

Important! During the rehabilitation period, the person must refuse to swim. 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, the man must follow the following rules:

  • intimate hygiene should be monitored and infection of the skin left after surgery should be prevented;
  • do not have sex or use devices designed for self-satisfaction or penis enlargement (vacuum pumps, extension cords, etc. );
  • it is forbidden to treat the scar with creams, ointments and other cosmetics;
  • the stretcher cannot be removed;
  • the sterile dressing is changed 2-3 times a day;
  • you need to stop physical activity and switch to a healthy diet.

Where the surgery takes place and how much it costs

Ligamentotomy is on the list of services for all major plastic surgery centers. This procedure is not performed at the city hospital.

The average cost of the operation is low and affordable for almost every segment of the population. If required, the patient can order lipofilling. The essence of the service is to fill the penis with fat taken from the thigh, buttocks or abdomen of a man. This is an auxiliary technique that allows the penis to be made thicker as the thin and long penis is ugly.

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

Ligamentotomy or penile prosthesis - which to choose?

For men who want penis enhancement, surgeons offer two options:

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

Both procedures are related to plastic surgery, but differ in the principle of execution. Doctors say they can be called alternatives to each other, but each of the methods listed has its advantages and disadvantages. For example, a penis prosthesis gives good results (sometimes the penis can be extended up to 7 centimeters), but the penis cannot be restored to its former shape and the implant needs to be replaced every 5-6 years. Ligamentotomy, on the other hand, is a quick and somewhat safe procedure, but its effect seems insignificant to many.

Both methods are quite effective, so it is advisable to choose based on what results are needed. If a few centimeters need to be added, the second option is appropriate, and for a significant increase in phallus, it is best to install a silicone implant.

Patient opinions

Male, 39 years old

For a long time, I couldn’t decide to go under the surgeon’s knife, but the positive feedback on the clinic’s website and the photos before and after contributed to the decision. The surgery was completed quickly and without complications. The only thing that upset him was the long recovery. It’s been six months since I visited the clinic. The scar healed, the doctor said everything was fine, but I sometimes feel slight pain during intercourse. It doesn’t bother me, but it still annoys me.

Guy, 26 years old

I had a ligamentotomy for two years and was satisfied. I was lucky, my penis lengthened by 4. 5 inches. Before that, I tried a lot of medication, bought an extender - all in vain. In my opinion, there is no point in spending money anywhere, it is better to pay once, although we get a lot of real results.

Male, 31

The doctors also offered me - either a prosthesis or a bandage. Unfortunately, I chose the first one. As a result, I had to face a number of unpleasant consequences. First, the implant did not take root. I had to take it out. Second, while wearing the prosthesis, the tissues of the penis were stretched, and when removed, the penis looked like a deflated ball. I had to pay a large sum to get everything in place. There were 3 more plastic surgeries, lipofilling. I usually regret it a hundred times, it would be better if I applied immediately for ligament surgery.
