Many of those studies I referenced were reporting erect gains, others BPFSL gains, and none were only flaccid gains; and the first two things I referenced were performed by third parties. The third one was conducting by the plastic surgeons, but as I noted appeared very honest, but I can’t be sure.
So I guess the points here are:
Can lig snipping create gains in erect or BPFSL in some situations? Yes, it appears it can.
Has this been repeatable? Yes, with the results of the objective observer falling into a consistent range for over 20 years.
Does it always produce length gains? Absolutely not. Due to complications such as reattachment and fibrosis, length gains can be minimal or actually negative.
Should it be someone’s first option? Hell no! The satisfaction rate is low, and the complication rate is extremely high.
But what is relevant to our discussion is that it has produced length gains in both BPEL and BPFSL in many cases, ONLY through excision of the suspensory ligament.
