What Is Penile Length Enhancement?
When it comes to penile length enhancement, non-surgical options are concurrent to increase in both girth and flaccid length. One must note, though, that when the penis is in the erect state, these non-surgical methods typically yield little to no increase in length compared to pre-augmentation measurements.
To achieve a significant increase in erect penile length, a minor surgical procedure is required. Normally, the penis is attached to the front of the pelvis, specifically the pubic symphysis, through suspensory ligaments. This anatomical arrangement results in a portion of the penis, up to approximately one-third of its length, being concealed behind the bone and not visually apparent or functionally utilized. By detaching the suspensory ligaments responsible for maintaining this position, the penis can be advanced forward, allowing for an increase in the visible and functional length of the penis.
During an erection, the augmented portion of the penis will also experience expansion, resulting in increased functional length. The surgical procedure for penile lengthening can typically be performed using local anesthesia, and patients experience minimal downtime, with the exception of refraining from sexual activities for a brief period determined on an individual basis by our expert surgeons.
Historically, there has been a tendency for divided ligaments to reattach themselves, leading to a loss of gained length. However, advancements in surgical techniques have addressed this concern, preventing ligament reattachment and ensuring the preservation of the achieved increase in length.
Alternative methods exist to enhance the functional length of the penis. In some cases, excess fat in the pubic region surrounding the penis can diminish its effective length by “hiding” it beneath the fat. By either removing the fat or tightening the pubic skin, the perceived “length” of the penis can be increased. Additionally, in certain individuals, the junction between the scrotal skin and the penile shaft may be positioned too low, resulting in a shorter functional length. This condition can be effectively corrected through a minor plastic surgical procedure.
How Does Penile Length Enhancement Work?
The true length of the penis cannot be increased when it is erect. What we strive to accomplish is to push the penis outward, thereby exposing more of its length for visibility and functionality. Approximately one-third of the penis is concealed behind the pubic bone, and only the portion in front of the pubic bone is observable and utilizable. The suspensory ligaments of the penis play a crucial role in maintaining its position.
There are two types of suspensory ligaments: the superficial and deep ligaments. Detaching these ligaments allows for pushing the penis outward, revealing more of its length and enabling its use. One criticism of this procedure is the potential for ligament reattachment, resulting in a loss of gained length. However, this issue can be mitigated by interposing fat, skin, or other adjacent tissues between the cut ends of the ligament to prevent reattachment. Another concern is the destabilization of the penis due to ligament division. This can be prevented by partially detaching the suspensory ligaments, leaving 80% to 90% of the ligaments intact.
An additional approach for achieving penile elongation involves the application of traction soon after the surgical procedure. Initially, manual traction is employed, and as the wounds heal, weights can be utilized to provide a controlled and gradual stretching force over a specified duration. Our team at Beverly Hills Male Enhancement has developed a discreet device tailored specifically for this purpose, allowing for easy concealment during use. Detailed instructions regarding the implementation of this technique will be provided during the consultation. It is noteworthy that even without surgical intervention, traction devices have shown potential in lengthening the penis. However, it is important to recognize that once traction is discontinued, the penis tends to retract back to its original position. In contrast, surgical detachment of the suspensory ligament offers a greater likelihood of sustaining the elongation achieved through traction, minimizing the chances of retraction.
