Objective: To investigate the application of MEDPOR surgical implant in modified penile elongation.

Methods: The suspensory ligaments were divided, and cavernous bodies of crus were partially mobilized, so as to release part of the cavernous bodies from inferior ramus of pubis. Then, the penis was elongated sufficiently. MEDPOR surgical implants (MEDPOR; high-density porous polyethylene, Howmedica Osteonics Corp. Newnan, Ga) were inserted between the cavernous bodies and pubic symphysis. Local fat flap was transposed to fill the front space of pubis to make sure of the effective elongation of penis and improve the appearance of mons pubis.

Results: Nineteen cases of micropenis were treated. The average length of the penis was 5.23 cm in the static state and 7.83 cm in erectile state before operation. After the operation, it increased to 8.63 cm in the static state and 11.36 cm in erectile state.

Conclusions: Application for MEDPOR surgical implant in modified penile elongation can make sure of the effective elongation of penis and improve the appearance of mons pubis.
