How do penis enlargement injections work?
Penis enlargement injections are performed using dermal fillers that are usually injected into the face; products such as Hyaluronic acid and collagen stimulators. In most cases between 10 and 15ml is injected in the first treatment to achieve girth increases of 2 to 5cm (depending on the length of the penis). The injections plump up the tissues in the same way that they do in the face. Top up treatments are usually required between 1 and 2 years depending on the type of product used and how long it takes for the body to break the filler down.
Do penis enlargement injections work?
Penis enlargement injections do work. They are able to plump up the tissues of the penis to achieve a thickening of the penis which will be visible both in the flaccid and erect states. The products do dissolve over time as they do in the face. Products that are generally used to create volume in the face are preferred in the penis. This is because they also last longer than HA fillers that are used for lip augmentation for example.
How long do penis enlargement injections last?
The longevity of penis enlargement injections depends on the type of filler used. There are some well known HA fillers that are the choice of most UK Andrologists. These tend to last 12 to 18 months before you need a top up treatment. More recently, products that stimulate production of natural collagen have become very popular. These can last longer than Hyaluronic acid injections, some up to 4 years duration. The longest lasting penis filling option however is with fat transfer, however this is a minor surgical procedure performed under general anaesthetic.
Can you get a penis enlargement with injections?
Injections to thicken the penis have become very popular in recent years. It is now possible to use products that were traditionally used to replace lost volume in the face. These include Hyaluronic acid injection and products that stimulate your own collagen production. They are the choice for men who have very little downtime or those that want a lower cost option than fat transfer, a surgical procedure that is more expensive but with longer lasting results. Penis enlargement injections are performed by Urology Doctors on an outpatient basis.
How much penis enlargement do you get from injections?
The increase in size of the penis from penis enlargement injections depends on the amount of filler injected at any one time, and the size of the penis to start with. The more filler that is injected, the bigger the penis will be. Most Doctors will not inject more than 20ml at any one time. In the first instance 10 to 15 ml is the usual amount suggested. Repeat treatments can be performed to make the penis even bigger as it is not a surgical treatment they can be repeated quite easily. Another factor in the size is the length of the penis to begin with. Patients with a shorter penis may see more of an increase in girth because the product injected is concentrated in one area.
