|Suspensory ligament of penis|
Vertical section of bladder, penis, and urethra.
|Latin||ligamentum suspensorium penis|
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.[dubious ] Until this ligament is properly healed, the penis cannot achieve a high angle of erection when engorged.
