The purpose of Suspensory Ligament Surgery is to attempt to lengthen the penis. This procedure, like all surgical procedures, carries benefits, risks, and complications. Before one considers this surgical treatment, please be aware that in ALL cases a pubic scar will result, which has been a major complaint among many patients. No surgeon can predict the type of scar formation you will get… it may be a wide thick scar, or it may be a very thin scar…but only after the procedure is done will you find out the final look and feel of the scar. In addition, lengthening of the penis with this technique, has resulted in length changes ranging from zero-inches to 1.0 inch. On occasion, actual shortening has occurred, but is not common.
