Male enhancement procedures can help men to feel more confident in intimate situations. These treatment options include phalloplasty, skin grafts, fat transfer procedures and dermal fillers. Working with a qualified Houston cosmetic surgeon can help you determine the right choice for your needs. Here are some key facts about injectable dermal fillers for male enhancement purposes.
A Range of Choices in Injectable Dermal Fillers
Most dermal fillers used for penis enlargement consist mainly of hyaluronic acid, which is a natural lubricant produced by the body. When injected in significant volumes into the shaft of the penis, these absorbable dermal fillers can increase its girth to a surprising degree. Some of the most common brand name dermal fillers used for male enhancement include the following:
- Juvederm® and Ellanse® are hyaluronic acid fillers that are often used to enhance the girth of the penis. Juvederm VOLUMA products are infused with lidocaine, making it a more comfortable choice for most men.
- RADIESSE® injections consist of calcium hydroxylapatite in a gel solution. In some cases, however, this injectable treatment can become lumpy and may not be the best choice for penile enhancement.
The number of syringes used for these injectable treatments generally varies between one and eight and depends on the degree of increase desired by the patient and the professional opinion of the cosmetic surgeon. You can usually expect an increase in girth of about 20 percent after an injectable procedure.
The Injection Procedure
During the procedure, your cosmetic surgeon will typically numb the area before injecting the base of your penis with the filler materials. You can expect some bruising and discoloration for a couple of days following the injections. In most cases, you can return to work right away and can have sex within 48 hours after your procedure. The effects of dermal filler treatments can last for one to two years, depending on the type of injection and the speed with which your body breaks down the ingredients of these fillers. Because dermal fillers are designed to break down naturally over time, you may require multiple treatments to maintain the increase in girth and to ensure the best results for your procedures.
