The length of the penis can be increased by 2 to 4 cm at rest, by cutting the anterior part of the suspensory ligament. This increase in length will only be seen to a very limited extent during erection, unless liposuction of the pubic area is associated with it.
It is also possible to increase the circumference of the penis, thanks to hyaluronic acid or fat injections, by 2 to 3.5 cm. This difference will be seen significantly at rest and more discreetly when erect.
Technique of penile augmentation:
Local anesthesia. Incision of 3 cm in the shape of an inverted V at the base of the penis, hidden in the hairy area and in the natural shadows. The anterior part of the suspensory ligament is freed and incised. Closure, then placement of biological surgical glue.
Sometimes, liposuction of the pubic area is associated to optimize the result.
Time to final results: 4-7 days (hematoma, swelling)
Longevity of results : definitive
Stop smoking 1 month before
Do not take Aspirin 10 days before surgery, inform Dr. Lucas of any anticoagulant medication (Sintrom, Coumadin, Eliquis, etc..) to arrange for its discontinuation or replacement.
Take Arnica capsules 5 times a day for 5 days before surgery to prevent hematoma
Shave pubic area 3 days before surgery.
Pain: the pain during the intervention will be almost non-existent, with an adapted anesthesia
Duration of the procedure: 60 minutes
Anesthesia: local with sedation or general if the patient wishes
Location: operating room
Ambulatory (without hospitalization)

Dr Lucas check-up 2 days, 2 weeks, 3 months
