In my opinion, Ligamentolysis
is quite perplexing and mysterious. With penis thickening procedures there are many different ways, with many kinds of fillers and graft materials, but when it comes to lengthening there is only one procedure: Ligamentolysis
. With fillers the penis will always become thicker, and while I read that some surgeons claim to be able to tell how much someone can gain in length from Ligamentolysis
, it seems very much a gamble.
Of course guys want length increase, but many are unaware that Ligamentolysis
is mostly only for Flaccid
gains. All reputable surgeons will say this, although Erect
gains is possible, but they will say that anyone promising it is a conman. I believe this is one reason why many people who had the surgery might have ended up disappointed, but even if they were aware of the nature of the surgery, many might have hoped for much bigger gains in length and especially Erect
Another problem is that the Flaccid
gains do not even seem to be guaranteed. Supposedly, the stretching after the procedure is very important, and here both surgeons and forum members will say very different things: some surgeons will claim 30-60 minutes a day for 1-3 months is enough, but some surgeons and forum members say that wearing the stretching device for 6-12 months for most of the day is required to have any significant gains.
It seems that most people have Flaccid
gains right after the surgery, but then some of the gains can be lost unless you do stretching, and supposedly this will "cement" the gains. In the past, there was risk of the penis shrinking due to the ligament healing and the penis retracting, but I suppose this is so well-known by now that since long surgeons use techniques to prevent this from happening. I read that it is pretty much impossible to happen if the right techniques are used.
Another thing that is often mentioned is changed Erection
angle and even loss of penile stability. It seems this is something that has stuck around, but both surgeons and forum members say it is either unheard of or greatly exaggerated. Ligamentolysis
is actually the one surgery offered everywhere in the world, so it seems they are quite comfortable to perform it, while many doctors have strong hesitations when it comes to certain fillers and dermal graft.
It is interesting because fillers have guaranteed results, albeit with possible complications, while Ligamentolysis
hardly have any guarantees to it; meaning that Ligamentolysis
is probably a rather safe surgery, even in comparison to fillers, which might have all kinds of unwanted complications such as lumpiness. Even if for example PMMA
might have great results for most people, many surgeons might be uncomfortable to deal with the complications whereas Ligamentolysis
seems more acceptable.
As for those who had Ligamentolysis
done: I am one of those people, but I am not a good example, because I had my procedure done 3 months ago and because of swelling of the Foreskin
I have been unable to stretch. For that reason, I am not sure if I have had any gains at all in length, but I am quite certain that my penis has not become shorter either. I would not be surprised at all if I had gains if I could do stretching, but without stretching I can say that I had no gains.
