Phalloplasty

This surgical procedure enhances penis length and it is particularly requested by men suffering from penile shortness

 

Preparing for phalloplasty

During the preoperative examination, the surgeon evaluates the best surgical methods to use, comparing them with the expectations of the patient, and prescribes related preoperative blood chemistries and instrumental assessments.

 

Phalloplasty procedure

Phalloplasty involves release of the suspensory ligament of the penis accomplished by a plastic of the pubic skin, V-­->Y plastic (penis lengthening) and / or the injection of hyaluronic acid and fat transplantation (penis widening). Generally, surgery is performed under locoregional anaesthesia in day surgery and lasts about 1 hour.

 

Postoperative care instructions

Postoperative course is painless, even though after anaesthesia may persist a minimal discomfort that subsides within 12-24 hours and, within 48 hours after surgery, patients can return to work. Sports can be restarted within 2 weeks.  Post operatively, patients are restricted from sexual activity for one month. The gain varies depending on the suspensory ligament length, located in depth. Generally, it ranges from 2 to 4 cm and it is visible both at rest and, in a lesser extent, in erection.

 

Scars in phalloplasty

A small V incision is made along the pubic skin at the base of the pubis and sutured with small stitches. After hair regrowth, the scar is inconspicuous.
