Penis Lengthening and Thickening Surgery
The dressing applied in the hospital must remain for 3 days following surgery.
After the 3 days the dressing should be removed and the wound should be gently cleaned each day with Betadine or Hibitan (obtained from any major chemist) and apply a clean STERILE dressing.
Do not get the penis wet for 3 days after surgery (take care when showering)
The Sutures are dissolvable and will disappear in the days and weeks after surgery.
Massage the penis gently once daily, every day, using Vaseline. Start this process for one week after surgery
A good quality penis stretcher device should be used starting 6 - 8 weeks after the operation and for a period of 3 - 8 months. The device should only be used when the wound has healed completely. If in doubt please ask. Penis stretcher devices are available to purchase from the office or can be bought online. A stretcher device helps prevent retraction of the penis following surgery.
Please begin to massage the penis a week after your surgery. Use Vaseline to avoid friction. You should massage gently for ten to fifteen minutes to help achieve symmetry of the transferred fat along the shaft.
Repeat the exercise each day for the first two weeks after surgery. Your Surgeon will advise you thereafter.
Please stretch the penis manually 10 times each time you go to the toilet starting 7 days after surgery. This should be continued until you start with the stretching device.
