Approximately a third of the penis lies inside the body, beneath the pubic bone. In the lengthening surgery, called phalloplasty, the suspensory ligament above the penis is released, which causes the penis to extend further outside the body. This is done through a small incision in the pubic area and will be covered by pubic hair. Although this procedure will result in erections that point downward, this will not interfere with normal function.
Especially strechers are aggressively marketed because manufacturing costs are only about $20 in China and they sell to consumers from $150 up to almost $500. Don’t believe it? Check chinese websites/marketplaces like Alibaba for wholesale prices.
