The most common technique involves cutting the ligament that attaches the penis to the pubic bone and performing a skin graft at the base of the penis to allow for the extra length. Professor Wylie says the surgery can result in an average gain in length to the flaccid penis of 2cm, but there will be no change to the size of the erect penis. Furthermore, the erect penis won’t point as high as before the operation because the ligament which was cut no longer offers support. “A lot of men who have this treatment don’t truly appreciate this loss of angle,” says Professor Wylie. “It can make sex quite uncomfortable. You’ve got to do a lot more manoeuvring with your partner. The advantage of a 2cm gain in flaccid length is far outweighed by the loss of angle of erection.”

There are numerous websites that recommend penis exercises to increase the length or girth of the penis. The rationale behind these exercises is that repetitively rubbing the penis creates “micro-tears” in tissues that look engorged when healed. There is one popular technique called jelqing in which the thumb and forefinger are wrapped around the penis to repetitively stretch the shaft from the base to the tip for 20 minutes every day. Despite claims to the contrary, there has never been any evidence that physical exercise of any sort, including jelqing, can increase penis size. In fact, the persistent rough handling of the penis can cause injury or scarring.Barbarian XL
