Many times, a man’s sense of the size of his penis, even if it is normal, can affect his relationships with his sexual partners. In many cases even self-confidence and self-esteem depend on the “sufficiency” of their genitals.
The lengthening procedure aims at stretching outwards the part of the penis that is inside the body. 1/3 of the penis is inside the pelvis. To achieve protrusion of the inner part further outwards, the ligaments that hold the body of the penis attached to the public bone are released.
An incision is made on the pubic hair area. No incisions are made on the penis. In obese patients a better result is achieved when lengthening is combined with simultaneous liposuction in the abdomen. Length gain cannot be estimated before surgery. The usual increase is two to two-and-a-half centimetres in flaccid state, while there are cases where length gain can reach up to five centimetres. The lengthening rate in the state of erection is relatively slightly smaller.
The duration of the procedure is 60 to 90 minutes under local or general anaesthesia. One overnight stay at the hospital is recommended while the patient should take one week’s leave from work. Sexual activity is forbidden for approximately 40 days. The lengthening procedure does not affect the functionality of the penis as to urination and erection, while the erection angle is slightly modified and is closer to horizontal
