Phalloplasty Malpractice

The Risks of Phalloplasty Surgery

Phalloplasty is a type of plastic surgery meant to increase the size of the penis by length, width or both. However, you may not have realized the risks behind it. We do not know a single medical school in the country that teaches surgeons how to perform this procedure. It is unregulated by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and some of the products involved, such as AlloDerm or BellaDerm, are also not approved by the FDA.

Phalloplasty is Ineffective

On top of the lack of safety regulations, phalloplasty is not effective. The procedure involves grafting fat and cutting the suspensory ligament but neither of these truly enlarges penis size. Cutting the ligament only gives the appearance of lengthening the penis but the actual length does not increase. Over time, the body absorbs the fat that was grafted so the width will not permanently be increased either.
