Anyone who has researched penis enlargement surgery has probably come across the term “suspensory ligament division.” This is a surgical procedure in which the ligaments that attach the penis to the pubic bone are cut, allowing the penis to hang lower and appear longer. While this may sound like a dream come true for some men, there are several potential drawbacks to this surgery that patients should be aware of before making a decision.
Decreased Erection Rigidity
One of the most common complaints after suspensory ligament division surgery is that erections are not as rigid as they were before. This is due to the fact that the ligaments being cut are responsible for approximately 50% of the erection rigidity. For some men, this decrease in rigidity is not a big deal, but for others, it can be a serious problem. Another possibility is that the erections may become less rigid over time as scar tissue forms and further laxity occurs. This can be a particular issue for men who have sex with partners who prefer a very hard erection.
Changes In Penis Position During Erection
Another potential downside of this surgery is that, because the penis is no longer attached to the pubic bone via ligaments, it can change position during an erection. In some cases, this may mean that the penis points downward more than it did before surgery. For other men, it may point to the side or even upward. This can obviously be quite frustrating and make sex less enjoyable for both partners.
Increased Chance Of Penile Trauma And Curvature Problems
Another concern with suspensory ligament division is that it increases the chances of penile trauma and curvature problems. This is because when the suspendory ligaments are cut, there is nothing holding the penis in place except for skin and scar tissue. As a result, if an erect penis hits something hard or gets bent too far to one side or the other, it can result in serious injury. In addition, because there is now extra skin on the top side of the shaft (due to releasing of tension), some men may experience more pronounced curvature when they get an erection. For example, instead of pointing straight up, their erections may now point slightly to one side or curl up at the end.
As you can see, there are several potential drawbacks to suspensory ligament division surgery that anyone considering this procedure should be aware of. While it can certainly lead to a perceived increase in length, it may also cause issues with erection quality and positioning, as well as increasing your risk for penile trauma and curvature problems.
Therefore, it’s important to weigh all of these factors carefully before making a decision about whether or not to proceed with surgery.
