“Division of the penile suspensory ligament with or
without the additional procedures of suprapubic fat
pad excision and inverted VY plasty is a simple and a
commonly used penile lengthening technique.
Although this has been related to serious morbidity
[9,10], in this series, the complication rate was low as
shown by others . The procedure is simple to
perform and gives similar results to more complex
types of penile lengthening surgery [2,3].
The operation does lengthen the ﬂaccid penis but
usually only by 1 cm. In some patients who
persevere with postoperative stretching exercises,
as much as 3 cm gain can be achieved, but patients
must also be warned that a small degree of penile
shortening may also occur.
