Greetings all

I stumbled upon this great forum while lurking around the internet and was pleasantly surprised that many of us here do share experiences (both good & bad) and learn off each other.

Hence I thought that I share my experience here as well. I have also attached quite a few photos to document my "progress".

To start off, the size of my erected penis is considered small, even among asian men, flaccid was 1 1/2 inches on a good day and slightly less than an inch when its cold or after exercise. Erected was slightly above 4 inches (10.8cm), and girth of 4.3 inches (11.0cm). Although small, I fall right into the category of "growers".

Also, I'm not obese and am pretty fit, just inadequate genetics on the penis-side of things [wink]. Basically after swimming, there is not even a bump on my trunks where my penis is supposed to be, there might just be a small bump where my testicles should be.


First ligamentolysis & alloderm grafting

Anyhow, I decided to visit one of the leading phalloplasty surgeons here in Taiwan and Dr Lee the surgeon was very patient and explained the whole procedure to me. Then I decided to undergo the ligamentolysis & alloderm grafting procedure.

The surgery was very painful in short, even under local anaesthesia. My penis was stitched for 10 days, no showers taken during that time.

Result: I gained an inch (2.5cm) in erected length (total 13.5 cm) and 0.5 inches (1.3cm) in erected girth (total 12.3 cm). These measurements were taken 3 months after surgery so swelling has subsided. You can see the erected state photos which were taken by my girlfriend attached. In short, I was very happy as I could "feel" and see a small bulge through my underwear or swimming trunks even in flaccid state.

I had to hang weights on my penis for 3 to 4 months to make my length gains "permanent" as I was advised that if I do not do that, my length gains will be minimal. My ligamentolysis was done via V-Y flap and there is a scar below my pubic hair now.

However I wanted more girth now that my size fell into the "average" range here.


Second alloderm grafting

I visited Dr Lee 8 months after my first surgery. He checked out my penis and felt that the alloderm graft has already softened and blood vessels have grown into it, therefore I can be ready for a second graft on top of the first one. However he also warned me that the risks of infection on secondary grafting was about 50/50, due to tight skin around my penis and also the lack of blood flow to the penis.

I thought about it for a while but still decided to go ahead with it after a couple of weeks. Hence I underwent a second alloderm grafting.

1 week after the surgery, I was getting woken up by sharp pain on my erected penis and I thought that it is normal since I have to get up to pee anyway. To my shock, my penis was swollen and red and there was bleeding at the wounds. I checked into Dr Lee's clinic first thing in the morning and yes, my second graft got infected...

In short, my wounds were opened up, Dr Lee cleaned it up - for 10 consecutive working days (except weekends when I had to soak my penis into iodine/ saline solution for 10 mins once/ day). Wound and infection clearing was terribly painful, I was also put under antibiotic drip daily during the "clean-up sessions". At the end of 10 days, Dr Lee assessed my penis to be clear of infection and stitched me up again. 

Even though I got infected, but the aftercare and attention of Dr Lee's staff and his attention to detail, my penis was well-looked after and I was relieved.

3 months after my second alloderm grafting, my girlfriend took some photos, as attached. I gained another 0.4 inches (1.0cm) to my erected girth (total 13.3cm now)

Conclusion

Lastly, I apologise for such a "long-winded" post but I hope that my experience can help someone out when they are considering phalloplasty via ligamentolysis & alloderm grafting. a few main points that I have gathered from my own experience:

1) Do not expect to have a penis like Peter North or John Holmes if my penis is small to begin with
2) Regarding alloderm grafting, it successfully added modest gains to my girth and feels really natural till today, 1 year after my last surgery, there are no losses on my gain. On the whole, I'm satisfied with it.
3) Regarding ligamentolysis, I had to hang weights for 15 mins everyday and there is a V-Y scar below my pubic hair. All for 2.5 cm of length gain. I won't recommend this procedure to anyone, especially if your length is already average or above. Besides, length gain via ligamentolysis was not much, in my case that is.
4) INFECTION! - For those considering secondary grafting, especially done with belladerm or alloderm where another sheet is placed on top of the first sheet - The RISKS of infection are REAL! Make sure that the surgeon is responsible enough to give due after-surgery care and follow-up.

I hope fellow friends here who are considering ligamentolysis and especially alloderm grafting will be able to get some information from this post of mine.

Cheers!

Thank you for sharing your experience. I also had an Alloderm grafting, but I only had one round and it was about 9 years ago. I would have never thought about the high probability of an infection from a 2nd graft. I decided against having another one only because I didn't want to go through the pain of the post-op recovery all over again. My penis would still retract, almost exactly like yours too (even long after recovery).

Gaining an inch in erect length is some of the best I have seen here. I think your results look very very natural, good for you. Your lady's hand make it looks like you have a great looking tool, and you do...enjoy it and thx for the report...

Can you share with us the Dr's site and the cost? Cheers!

Thanks guys for letting me know that an inch gained erected length is a good result. Honestly, I was expecting like up to 2 inches length gain but I guess that my expectations were not realistic.

This surgeon is based in Taipei, his website is as follows. Although it is in Chinese, Dr Lee did his grad school in cosmetic surgery (including phalloplasty I think) at UCLA and speaks good English.

In hindsight, after my modest gains as stated, I am reasonably satisfied. Especially when my girlfriend can no longer put my whole length into her mouth and I need to use bigger condoms. However thinking about the infection experience that I had after my second graft, I wouldn't do it again.

Cheers

Sorry I forgot to mention the costs.

Ligamentolysis & alloderm graft + hyaluronic acid into glans to make it bigger (although glans became bigger, there was a bubbly look on glans and is temporary gain so I wouldn't recommend it), total damage for all = US$12,640.

2nd alloderm graft = US$6,240.

Excellent results and looks very natural without any of the common lumps, bumps, or ridges pmma patients often have to live with.

Looks huge in your girlfriends hand [smile]

Good looking result. What did you girlfriend think of the whole experience? Does she like the result?

@purple donkey: my glans was enlarged to match my new girth. Although I didn't measure it, visually it is the same circumference is the same as my girth so I guess it to be around 13.3cm now.

@gsxr7501941: the legendary gsxr! my girlfriend enjoys it much more now. She can only try to deep throat me now as opposed to being able to do so with ease prior to the operations. Penetrative sex feels better for her too because I get hard as a rock (literally) and the bigger girth stretches her a bit more now.

My wife said your result looks good. Glad your girlfriend enjoys it. It is nice to make our significant others happy, but it's more important that we are happy.

Thanks all for your encouragements! Yes, it does look and feel natural. I guess that having undergone girth enlargements now leave me hungry for more girth...

I'll keep reading up people's experiences over here, however I'm unsure of what other options are available for me having done alloderm grafting twice... target girth 5.5 to under 6.0inches...

I can tell you for sure that it is best to leave it as is. You lucked out with no problems and you and your lady are happy, why take a chance now?

Good luck anyway.

Thanks Mustang. After much research on this forum about Lipen-10/ PMMA mixture, I'm tempted to go for only 1 injection to get my EG to 5.5", and also a larger flaccid size as my penis now still retracts in flaccid state.
