Does Penis Lengthening Surgery Give You
A Bigger Erection?

Penis lengthening surgery can be very effective for giving you a longer flaccid (limp) cock.

But, during erection, your cock will be no longer than it was before the surgery.

And after surgery, your cock will no longer point upward. Instead it will be loose at the base, stick straight out or point downward, and be much more susceptible to injury and penis fracture.

What Penis Lengthening Surgery Does

This is a surgical procedure that releases (cuts) the suspensory ligaments that attach the shaft to the under surface of the pubic bone.

When these ligaments are cut, the portion of the shaft that is normally inside of the body is released and moves outward.

The cock then appears longer when it is limp. As much as 1 1/2 inches.

HOWEVER, almost all of this internal portion of your shaft extends out when you get an erection. So after penis lengthening surgery, your erection will not be much longer. Usually no more than 1/4 inch (that's correct, only one quarter of an inch!).

In every study no shaft ever attained more than 1/2 inch in erectile length gain after penis lengthening surgery.

Disastrous Results

Your cock is a very sensitive and delicate organ. That’s what makes it so fantastic! And penis lengthening surgery is a risky procedure.

In a Europen Urology study on penis lengthening surgery, Dr. O'Leary (a famous European penis plastic surgeon) states: “I’ve seen some real disasters".

He goes on to describe times he has repaired the damage caused by this type of augmentation when it has gone wrong. Complications including scarring, infections, loss of a normal erection angle, decrease in sensation, and impotence.

Occasionally, he found penis lengthening surgery actually made the shaft shorter. This happens when the scar tissue reconnects the shaft to the pelvis and pulls more of the shaft into the body.

Risks of Penis Lengthening Surgery

There are a large number of risks associated with this surgery.

These risks include and are not limited to:

  • Erectile dysfunction (difficulty with erection).

  • Nerve injury resulting in decrease of penile sensation.

  • Loss of erect upward angle of the erection. li>

  • Scarring causing a shorter shaft and/or a now curved erection

  • Fibrosis of superficial vein. - May lead to Pyronies Disease: a bent penis

  • Infection.

  • Ecchymosis (bruising).

  • Skin incision separation.

  • Loss of some penile skin.

  • Bleeding.

  • Seroma (collection of serum fluid under skin).

Some of these complications may require further surgery.

Penis Psychosis

Even though the average erect penis is 4 - 6 inches long, the corresponding flaccid or limp penis may range from only 1 inch to almost 5 inches.

Some men don't care about a longer erection, they just want to look good at the gym or in front of their partner.

These men too often risk all the side effects and possible complications of this penis surgery just so that they can feel "more masculine" in front of others.

Undergoing surgery for this reason is not really sane. It is clinically called: penile psychosis. And, it's a lot more common than you may think!

Men with a normal penis, who insist they are too small, have the honor of having earned the psychiatric diagnosis of: penile dysmorphic disorder.

These men would undoubtedly benefit from seeing a psychologist instead of a surgeon.

I'm not being rude with that comment. If these men felt comfortable knowing they were perfectly normal, they would not risk the health or function of their penis with an unnecessary penis lengthening surgery.

Fat Men

A lot of the men who legitimately think their penis is below average are considerably overweight. Their penises are normal. But, their penises look shorter because they are buried in fat.

Being well overweight can also make a man's normal penis look proportionally smaller than the rest of him.

If you are fat, slimming down can help your penis look bigger and longer. Dropping 35lbs or more, and adding a little abdominal exercise, will reduce the fat pads in the pubic area considerably. This can make a man's penis look much larger!


This penis surgery is also expensive.

The costs include:

1) surgeon's fee

2) assistant's fee

3) anesthesia fee

4) operating room and recovery room

5) related surgical supplies

6) followup care

You can easily be looking at between $5,000 and $12,000 in costs.

When Penis Lengthening Surgery Is Appropriate

There are only two conditions where this special surgery may be appropriate.

When a man has a:

  • Burried penis

  • Retracted penis (similar to, but less severe than a buried penis)

These are congenital defects (birth defects, not necessarily hereditary) that can make a man very self conscious and uncomfortable being naked in front of his partner or in a locker room type situation.

In boys and young men, a retracted or buried penis can cause serious ridicule from his peers. It can result in severe mental trauma and emotional dysfunction.

There is nothing wrong with taking the necessary cosmetic surgical actions to correct this problem and give a young man the sense of "feeling normal".

If you have a retracted or buried penis, this surgery may be your only cosmetic option. And the reward may outweigh the consequences.

Outside of this, there is just no sane reason to risk this specialized surgical procedure.

Achieving A Longer Erection

If you are trying to lengthen an erection, lengthening surgery is not the answer! This surgery should really be called "flaccid (limp) dick lengthening surgery".

For lengthening an erection, correct traction has been clinically proven to be the best and safest method. (Not to mention a very inexpensive method also.)

All the cost, misery, and erectile misalignment from penis lengthening surgery has never added more than 1/2" to any penis when erect. Usually far less. It's a misuse of the surgery and a totally wrong answer for a longer erection.

This surgery was never designed as a method for increasing erectile length. It was designed for those who suffer from penile retraction (when the shaft is pulled inside of the body).

And although there are a number of surgeries available for widening a cock, there is in fact NO surgery available for effectively lengthening an erection.

Correct traction is now medically recommended and endorsed in 29 countries world wide for both lengthening a cock, widening a cock, and straightening a bent or a curved penis.

The Advantages of Correct Penile Traction

Correct penile traction:

  • Can add up to 1 1/2 inches in length to an erection

  • Has none of the possible side effects of penis lengthening surgery


Penis lengthening surgery has a distinct purpose: The surgery can release a retracted or buried penis so that it will look normal when it is flaccid (limp). But, this surgery has definite consequences and many post operative risks.

Penis lengthening surgery is NOT something that will make an erection noticeably longer. It was never intended for that purpose.

Correct traction, on the other hand, has been clinically proven over and over again to be the best, safest , and most effective method for attaining a longer and wider erection.

Correct traction is medically approved and currently recommended in 29 countries around the world for this purpose!

Be Well.....
