This procedure has been very popular in the last few years and there is an increasing tendency worldwide to elect to have this surgery. Contrary to popular belief, this surgery is minimally invasive and only involves sectioning the suspensory ligament of the penis, which attaches the latter to the pubic bone. This allows the penis to ‘free’ itself from the pubic bone. Upon doing this, the patient can see anywhere from a half an inch to an inch and a half of improvement. It is worthwhile to note, that many patients elect to have this procedure in combination with fat injections.
