TOPIC: 6 week delayed hanging???

6 week delayed hanging??? 10 years 6 months ago #1271842689

I spoke with Rosenthal the other day. I have heard good things about him. He does not use reps, is a urologist, and has been doing this for a long time.
I am looking to do the lig cut and belloderm on one procedure to save money. I am not convinced on pmma because it is not a natural element. (Please no derail on this).

He said that he prefers to have the patient wait to hang weights until 6 weeks or complete healing of the belloderm. I have heard of belloderm healing at 3 weeks and assume he evaluates healing and gives the go ahead on Hanging.
He says he applies a fat scaffold between the pubic bone and the lig to slow reattachment. I have only been researching this for a few months now, but it seems the general consensus is that Hanging should start right away.
I mentioned this. He said that the belloderm needs to heal and that they have not seen any difference in starting the Hanging later. He did however say that you might lose 1\" EL initially until the Hanging program got in full swing.
So, am I going to lose 1\" EL even after a lig cut until I start Hanging? I was hoping for Girth and length gains.
Thanks for all of you guys sharing your experiences and information. This is a great board.

You may lose some length and then you may not. And if you do lose any length there are no guarantees you will gain it all back. That\'s important to take note of.
Furthermore, if you have modest goals for Girth, Belladerm can give you somewhere between 0.5\"-1.0\" EG gains.
Tommygun, what are your before erect stats?
As with any surgery, keep in mind that there are risks.

Oh, and as for Hanging - I\'d follow the doctor\'s orders. I too would be tempted on Hanging earlier, but I\'m not sure there is enough documentation/testimony on the forums or internet suggesting otherwise for post-op Belladerm protocol.

Doc is probably also covering his ass by adding in a few more weeks. We are not all exactly the same and some of us heal more quickly, or less quickly. I\'m sure he\'s accounting for that. That would be MY guess.

@Tommygun
Next time you get a chance to chat with Dr. Rosenthal, mind asking him if he\'s heard of this forum? And if he has, can you also ask him to what extent he\'s browsed/read-up on the content found here? Thanks.

Also ask him whether you could manually stretch your penis before those six weeks are over, prior to Hanging. How soon you could start stretching it lightly at first then with more force later on.
