What is Phalloplasty?
We are pleased to announce that we are now offering the newest procedure in cosmetic surgery for men. This is a penile shaft enhancement procedure that is simple, safe and designed to increase both the length and circumference of the penile shaft. No foreign material or implant is used. This procedure does not interfere with sensation or function and is done on an outpatient basis in the confidential setting of our outpatient surgical facility. Healing is quite rapid and you are up and about the next day and back to work in a day or so; as a rule.
The Phalloplasty Procedure
Penis enhancement surgery is a relatively simple, safe operation performed on an outpatient basis under light general anesthesia. Surgery actually involves two separate procedures. Both are completely natural and do not involve the introduction of implants or other foreign materials.
In the penile lengthening procedure, the doctor releases the suspensory ligaments that attach the penis to the under surface of the pubic bone. This allows access to the section of the penis hidden behind the skin wall. He is then able to extend the length of the penis in proportion to the length of the internal portion.
The increase in length varies depending on a patient’s anatomy. However, results generally range from 1-1/2″ to 2.” The limiting factor is the patient’s own anatomy. There is no way to predict what that length gain will be prior to surgery. Post-operative stretching is essential to success.
Penile Lengthening surgery
The penile lengthening procedure involves a simple transfer of Dermofat graft. The patient’s own tissue is used for augmentation because they do not run the risk of rejection of the body. The result is a penis of the same shape and length but greater in circumference. Because the penile shaft is narrower than the maximum diameter of the head, the doctor usually fills out the shaft slightly beyond the head’s maximum diameter to maintain proper proportion.
Circumference can be increased by 50 percent or more, depending on the results desired by the patient.
In this procedure, increases occur in both the flaccid and erect state although length gain in the flaccid state is generally greater.
In this procedure, no actual length is created, rather, the internal portion of the penis is “advanced” or “externalised,” exposing greater length. This is accomplished by resecting (cutting) a portion of the suspensory ligaments which hold the penis against the undersurfaces of the pubic bone between your legs.
The advantages are:
A smaller 1″ incision, therefore, less pain, swelling and bruising and also quicker healing. There is less scar tissue produced to possibly obstruct the lengthening and therefore a better overall result is more likely. The ligaments are then reconstructed to prevent any change in the angle of erection and prevent scar retraction compromising the results. The use of the operating microscope also makes this a more precise operation.
Actually, another 3-4″ of the penis is located inside the body. This penile root actually arches upward inside the body and by resecting the suspensory ligaments, this upward arch is extended forward. A simple 1″ curvilinear incision in the pubic area is all that is required to gain access to the ligaments. For overweight men, removal of some of the fat in the pubic area will also add to the perceived length increase of the penis. There is a small percentage (3-4%) of men who get no length gain at all in the erect state and rarely may even lose a bit of length due to scar tissue formation and retraction.
Post Operative Complications and Penis Enlargement
As with any form of surgery, there are a number of potential risks both psychological and physical.
The results of penis enhancement surgery do not satisfy everyone. This is partly because the hope such procedures will cure, or be the answer to a problem, are often not fulfilled.
Anxiety may detract from the pleasure or fantasy of a bigger penis. During any surgical technique, things can go wrong, albeit, very rarely.
- Postoperative infections.
- Damage to surrounding tissue and nerves.
- Side effects of an Anesthesia.
