Most patients who undergo penis lengthening surgery weren’t satisfied with the results, a study revealed.
On average, the surgery added half an inch to the length of the patients' flaccid, stretched penises but only 35 percent of the patients were satisfied with the outcome of the surgery.
The surgical technique used was division of the penile suspensory ligament. This is the most common penis-lengthening surgery and allows the penis to hang lower.
Some men also got a spacer inserted to prevent the ligament’s reattachment. Three patients also had excess fat removed from the pubic area. The use of the spacer seemed to bring the best results, but didn’t change the findings, the researchers note.
Most of the men who were studied actually had normal-sized penises and were preoccupied with the idea that their penises should be longer, the researchers note.This preoccupation with an imagined problem in penile appearance is called penile dysmorphic disorder.
