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

Ligamentotomy is a plastic operation in which the outer part of the male genitalia is enlarged. This is due to the rupture of the ligaments that occupy the subcutaneous part of the cavernous bodies in the inguinal area. After the procedure, the penis stretches and new connective tissue forms at the site of surgery. Ligamentotomy is a simple and safe method to enlarge the penis. Penis prosthesis is an excellent substitute for penis enlargement and the use of expensive medications.

Features of surgical enlargement of the phallus

Doctors recommend ligamentotomy of the penis in three cases:

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

Indications for surgery are micropenis, penile injury and fibrosis.

What results can you expect

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

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

  • heart disease;
  • intracranial pressure;
  • blood clotting disorders;
  • neuralgic and mental illnesses.

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

It is important! If for some reason ligamentotomy is contraindicated, then you can use an alternative - hardware elongation of the phallus. To do this, you need to buy an expander.

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

Other shortcomings of the technique include:

  • painful contact;
  • a long and unpleasant rehabilitation period;
  • high probability of stitches;
  • difficulty urinating;
  • weakened erection (first month after surgery).

Preparation for the procedure

A ligamentotomy of the penis is a surgical procedure that the patient must first undergo. He is instructed:

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

The man is also sent for a consultation with a psychologist. This procedure is necessary to identify mental disorders that are contraindicated.

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

  • 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;
  • On the eve of the operation you need to adjust yourself - shave and bathe the inguinal area.

Doctors also recommend not taking strong medication 2-3 days before surgery. This primarily applies to anticoagulants - drugs that prevent blood clotting.

If it is not possible to temporarily stop taking any of these drugs, the doctor should be notified in advance.

How is penis enlargement performed?

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

  1. The patient is given spinal anesthesia and the medical staff monitors his reaction;
  2. When the lower body becomes invisible, the surgeon makes a small incision near the scrotum (about 1, 5-2 cm);
  3. Through the incision, the doctor looks for a connecting ligament and cuts it with a scalpel;
  4. The surgeon then draws the penis to an acceptable length. This is done slowly and carefully so as not to damage the cave tissue.

When the penis is stretched to the limit, an incision is made and a sterile bandage is placed on it.

rehabilitation period

The next day after the operation, the patient is put on a stretcher - a stretcher. Some call it a medical enhancer, but it has nothing in common. It should always be worn until the seams are removed.

After 14-20 days, the formation of new connective tissue between the cut cavernous bodies and the pubic bone will be completed. The stitches are then removed at the clinic. At the same time, the man can get rid of the rash, but doctors still insist on wearing it for 30-45 days after surgery.

At the end of the recovery period, a man can approach you, but first you have to be careful with your "dignity". The new connective tissue is still sensitive and can be damaged during hard sex.

It is important! During the rehabilitation period, a person must refrain from going to the beach. Until the scar heals, swimming in a public pond can lead to wound infection and the appearance of an acute inflammatory process.

General recommendations

During rehabilitation, a man must follow the following rules:

  • intimate hygiene should be monitored and postoperative wound infection should be prevented;
  • you cannot have sexual intercourse and use devices designed for masturbation or penis enlargement (vacuum pumps, expanders, etc. );
  • It is forbidden to treat scars with creams, ointments and other cosmetics;
  • it is not possible to remove the bed;
  • sterile dressings are changed 2-3 times a day;
  • you should stop physical activity and go on a healthy diet.

Where the operation is carried out 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 the operation 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 a man's penis with fat from the thighs, hips or abdomen. This is an auxiliary technique that allows you to thicken the penis, because a thin and long penis is ugly.

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

Ligamentotomy or penile prosthesis - what to choose?

For men who want to build a penis, 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. According to doctors, they can be called an alternative to each other, but each of these methods has its advantages and disadvantages. For example, a penis prosthesis gives good results (sometimes the penis can be extended up to 7 cm), but restoring the penis to its previous shape will not work and the implant will need to be replaced every 5-6 years. In turn, ligamentotomy is a quick and relatively safe procedure, but its effect will seem insignificant to many.

Both methods are quite effective, so it is advisable to make a choice based on what results are needed. If you need to add a few centimeters, the second option is appropriate, and it is better to resort to the installation of a silicone implant to significantly increase the phallus.

Patient reviews

Man, 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 before and after photos helped me decide. The operation was completed quickly and without complications. The only thing that bothered me was my long recovery. It's been six months since I came to the clinic. The scar healed, the doctor said that everything was fine, but sometimes I feel a little pain during sex. It doesn't bother me, but it's still annoying.

Boy, 26 years old

I had a ligamentotomy two years ago and was satisfied. Luckily, the penis stretched 4, 5 centimeters. Before that, I tried a bunch of drugs, bought an expander - to no avail. I think it makes no sense where to spend the money, it is better to pay at least once, but get a real result.

Man, 31

The doctors also offered me a prosthesis or an incision in the ligaments. Unfortunately, I chose the first one. As a result, I faced a number of unpleasant consequences. First, the implant did not take root. I had to take it out. Second, when the prosthesis is inserted, the tissues of the genitals are stretched, and when it is removed, the genitals looked like a dead ball. I had to pay a lot of money to get everything back in place. There were 3 more plastic surgeries, lipofilling. In general, I regret a hundred times, it would be better if I register for a ligamentotomy immediately.
