Well I've read this from author Benjamin A Sherer, Laurence A Levine:
Peyronies Disease patients with more severe disease (dorsal curvature >60⁰, hourglass deformity,
penile hinging, and/or extensive plaque calcification) are candidates for plaque incision
and grafting (PIG) or partial plaque excision and grafting (PEG) 72,83 . To qualify for a
grafting procedure, it is critical that patients have good preoperative erectile function
(adequate rigidity for penetrative sex with or without use of PDE5-i’s) preoperatively 84,85 .
Compared to TAP, grafting procedures have higher rates of postoperative ED, likely due
to disruption of the tunica albuginea and underlying corporal tissue. In the largest
contemporary series of grafting procedures, rates of postoperative ED range from 20-
32% 86-89 .

Don't they check erection quality before... or maybe just mild or nondetected ED gets postoperative ED later? Who knows most of these studies have small followups anyway (12-18 months after).

Still it was misinformation on my part, since postoperative ED seems to be also a possibility in plication technique. The main difference seems to be Plication more shortening, Grafting less sensitivity and more recurrent curvature, maybe because they start with more curvature anyway (>60 degrees) and hinge effect, etc

Edited to add: the best surgeons like Levine and others may have different personal experiences, here they're just reviewing the literature and various studies. But it has to be seriously considered.

The whole penis is stretched, it’s just part of the penis is buried inside the body so you can’t see it.

It should be stretching the internal portions of the penis as well.

There are traction devices that can do that??? Or is it just cuz it starts pulling it out further or something?(that sounds like a dumb question but I’m tryna think of how that could work)

Mine found no abnormalities :(

Not consistent with my symptoms. It was done while flaccid.

I had excision and grafting with no issues. First I have heard that there is a loss of erection quality. Dr. Levine told me that my erection quality should be the same before or after. Excision and grafting doesn't directly have anything to do with the mechanics of obtaining and maintaining an erection. The risk is where the plaque is. The most risky being if you have an upward curve. This would indicate the plaque is on the top of your penis and that the excision/grafting would involve manipulating the nerve bundle which runs along the top of the penile shaft from base to glans.

Dr. Levine is my doctor. He doesn't have a prescribed protocol. Just that the longer you can wear a traction device he feels you get more benefit from it. The spring loaded rod type traction devices you need to take a break every 2 hours.

The last time I spoke to him he was recommending the Phallosan Forte type device because it is a little easier to use and you can wear it longer.

Edit: How is the SIZE of the plaque determined?

Some doctors will do an ultrasound. From this they can determine the location and size of the plaque.
