Penile lengthening surgery is a procedure that involves extending the length of the penis by releasing the suspensory ligament. This ligament attaches the penis to the pubic bone and provides support during an erection. When the suspensory ligament is released, the penis can drop down and hang longer. Penile lengthening surgery can add up to an inch to the length of the penis. It is important to note that this surgery does not increase the girth or width of the penis. The results of the surgery are permanent.
Penile lengthening surgery is typically performed by a urologist or plastic surgeon. Penuma is the only penile lengthening device approved by the FDA. The surgery usually takes less than two hours and is done on an outpatient basis, meaning you won't have to stay in the hospital overnight.
The Penuma device is a silicone elastomer sleeve that is inserted under the skin of the penis. It does not include taking fat from another area of your body and injecting it into your penis.
During the surgery, the surgeon will make an incision in the base of your penis. They will then release the suspensory ligament, which will allow your penis to hang lower. The surgeon may also remove some of the skin from the penis shaft to make it appear longer.
After surgery, you will need to wear a penile splint for six weeks. This will help support your penis as it heals. You should also expect some bruising and swelling.
