Elongation of the penis is not recommended in men who have completely functional penis.
Elongation might be achieved by releasing the fundiform ligament and the suspensory ligament that attaches the two erectile bodies to the pubic bone (ligamentolysis). After the operation, the penis is stretched in order to prevent the severed suspensory ligament from healing shorter than it was previously. This elongation is only visual and does not affect penile structures. Skin redistribution in patients with deformities of the penile skin and liposuction in obese patients are other ways of visually elongating the penis.
Real lengthening of the penis includes lengthening of the corporeal bodies, but has a risk of losing the ability to have erection.
