Suspensory ligament of the penis
|Suspensory ligament of the penis|
|Latin||ligamentum suspensorium penis|
|Gray's||subject #262 1249|
Surgically cutting this ligament allows more of the penis to hang outside the body, thereby increasing its length. The ligament is then encouraged to heal in an extended state, promoting a longer penis overall. Until this ligament is properly healed, the penis cannot achieve a high angle of erection when engorged.
