Ads for penis-enlargement pills, pumps, creams, and other similar products are found everywhere. They all vouch for an increase in the length and girth of the organ, but there’s only a little evidence that supports their claims. Rather than taking chances on these products, you might want to try penis dermal fillers instead.

So how do injectable filler treatments work for penis augmentation? A dermal filler injection is administered into the penile shaft using a microcannula to increase the penile girth of both the flaccid and erect penis. Men prefer non-surgical penis augmentation treatment with synthetic fillers because it produces an immediate result.

Male Enhancement Procedure Using Dermal Fillers for Penis

Penis size is often a taboo topic for men. Although some of them think their size is average, about 45% of men wished their penises were larger. Modern medicine has already come a long way and now it offers excellent alternatives to cosmetic surgery when increasing the size of a penis – like dermal fillers.

The fear that a man’s penis is too small to look at or to satisfy their partner is a common issue for most men. Using dermal fillers is an effective way to slightly increase the girth of a penis without the usual risks associated with plastic surgery.

If you’re considering a male enhancement procedure with dermal fillers, then here are some important things you must know first:

a) How Dermal Fillers for Penile Enlargement Work

Penis filler injections work in the same way as facial fillers do: they instantly provide additional volume to the treatment area. This kind of penis enhancement procedure doesn’t increase penis length, but the increase in penile girth makes it look naturally thicker and longer.

When injected directly into the penis, this non-surgical penile girth enhancement increases the thickness and improves the overall appearance of the male private part. It gives the patient a huge confidence boost and makes them comfortable in their own skin.

b) How Much Girth After Dermal Filler Injections for Penis

Unfortunately, penile augmentation using injectable fillers doesn’t increase penile length. Patients are always advised to have realistic expectations about the treatment – it increases penile girth, but it won’t double the size of the penis.

The increase in penis size after a non-surgical penile enhancement procedure varies per patient because of different factors, such as the total surface area of the treatment site, the number of syringes used, the patient’s metabolism, and the condition of their skin.

The typical penis shaft girth increases for most patients are about 20% to 35%. They usually require about 6 to 15 injections of the penile filler to achieve aesthetically pleasing, sexually desirable, and confidence-boosting results.

c) How to Inject Dermal Fillers into Penis

The penile enlargement procedure is straightforward so it usually only takes less than an hour to complete. The treatment area is cleaned first with an antiseptic agent and then numbed with an anesthetic cream. Once the anesthetic has taken effect, the penis filler is injected into the areolar tissue using a blunt-tip microcannula to ensure that it’s evenly distributed along the penile length.

Small blunt-tipped cannulas are used for the procedure for two reasons: first is to ensure that it stays and glides easily through the areolar tissue. The second reason is to minimize trauma to the surrounding tissue and ensure the patient’s safety.

d) Average Penile Dermal Filler Cost

The exact price of a penis enlargement procedure using dermal fillers depends on the type of filler used, the number of syringes needed, the provider’s credentials, and the location of their practice.

Since patients require multiple HA filler treatments to achieve the ideal results, they might need to spend anywhere from $1000 to $25000. This body contouring treatment is considered cosmetic, so treatment sessions might not be covered by health insurance companies. Patients often need to pay the entire cost out of their pocket. 

e) What Kind of Dermal Filler for Penis is Used?

Most providers use hyaluronic acid fillers to provide excellent girth enhancement results that are instantly noticeable. The HA filler is also highly resistant to external compression, giving the penis a natural feel even when it’s erect or flaccid. Additionally, hyaluronic acid fillers can be dissolved using hyaluronidase if needed.

Here are some of the most commonly used HA filler brands for non-surgical penis augmentation:

  • Juvederm XC
  • Juvederm Voluma XC
  • Restylane Lyft
  • Restylane Defyne

f) How Long Do Penile Dermal Fillers Last?

The duration of results usually depends on different factors, like the brand of filler used and the patient’s rate of metabolism. Most patients may enjoy penile enlargement results for around 12 to 24 months. Maintenance treatments are also recommended to maintain the penis size for longer.

Although hyaluronic acid penis fillers eventually dissolve, the results are still noticeable after the injectable is completely absorbed by the body. This is because HA fillers also increase collagen production in the area, leading to longer-lasting results.

What Problems Can Dermal Fillers on Penis Solve?

Most patients undergo penile girth enhancement using dermal fillers to experience a visible increase in penile girth. They may use the treatment for other benefits, such as:

  • Reducing bumps and lumps along the penile length
  • Correcting unusual curvature of the organ
  • Increasing the penile girth even in its flaccid state
  • Increasing longevity during sexual activity
  • Improving the balanced appearance of the organ

Am I a Good Candidate for Penis Enlargement With Dermal Fillers?

Although most men can benefit from this treatment, the results might be better for some than others. It can also be performed on both circumcised and uncircumcised men. The ideal candidate for this procedure is a non-smoking man with good general health who wants a modest increase in penile girth.

Smoking affects the longevity of fillers, as well as the patient’s recovery after the treatment. If you’re unsure whether you’re suitable for this procedure, you can always consult a trusted provider nearby.

An increase in the penis size may increase longevity during sexual intercourse, but remember that non-surgical penile enlargement isn’t a treatment for erectile dysfunction. To find out the best procedure for this condition, make sure to consult a medical professional.

Penile Enhancement With Dermal Fillers Risks

Male enhancement procedures using dermal fillers are considered safe and effective, as long as they’re administered by an experienced provider. This low-risk treatment is safer than cosmetic surgery because no incisions or stitches are involved.

Mild but common risks associated with  dermal filler treatments may occur, including swelling, redness, bruising, and hypersensitivity in the treatment area. These symptoms usually go away on their own after a few days, but make sure to contact a medical professional immediately if they persist or worsen.

According to a 2021 study, about 4.3% of patients experienced complications like infection, subcutaneous bleeding, and subcutaneous nodules. All of these were treated accordingly to prevent further deterioration.

The biggest risks of this treatment are usually caused by subpar products or improper injection techniques by inexperienced providers. Penis enhancement fillers are usually administered with a cannula because using a needle increases the risk of accidentally injecting the filler into a blood vessel. This results in vascular occlusion that might progress into embolism or necrosis if left untreated.

The anatomical and technical nuances of penis enlargement fillers are different from facial fillers, so it’s crucial to find a provider who knows how to perform this particular treatment well.

How to Take Care of the Treatment Area After Penile Dermal Filler Treatment

Since penile enlargement treatments don’t require surgery, only minimal recovery time is needed before patients can return to normal activities. To minimize the risk of infection and ensure that the injection sites heal quickly, here are some aftercare tips to follow:

  • Keep the area clean at all times
  • Avoid sexual intercourse or masturbation for the first 7 to 14 days
  • Massage the treatment area gently to even out the filler injection
  • Put a cold compress or ice pack on the treated area for about 10 to 20 minutes to alleviate discomfort
  • Limit strenuous physical activities for at least 7 days after the treatment

Dermal Fillers vs. Other Penile Enhancement Procedures

Dermal fillers are safe and effective for subtly increasing the girth of a patient’s penis, but it might not be the best treatment for everyone – especially for those looking for dramatic or permanent results. Here are other penile enhancement procedures and how they compare to penile dermal fillers:

1) Autologous Fat Transfer

This procedure involves taking fat from another fleshy part of the body and injecting the fat into the penile shaft to increase its girth. However, this treatment isn’t recommended for thinner patients who may not have enough body fat to transfer to their penis.

Most patients are generally happy with their results, but this treatment has a higher risk of uneven-shaped penises than dermal fillers because the injected fat may be unevenly distributed. The fat may also be reabsorbed by the body in some cases, requiring patients to undergo the procedure again. 

2) Priapus Shot (PRP Therapy)

Priapus shots (or P-Shots) involve drawing the patient’s own blood and processing it to separate the platelet-rich plasma layer. The PRP layer contains essential elements that promote tissue growth. This penile injection may also give patients better erections and help manage their erectile dysfunction.

However, most evidence of P-shots indicating an increase in the length and girth of an individual’s penis is anecdotal. There isn’t enough proof that this treatment may reshape the penis and increase its size as much as penis dermal fillers do.

3) Penuma Penis Enlargement Surgery

Penuma is a type of penis enhancement surgery that involves inserting a crescent-shaped silicone implant under the penis to increase its length and width. This FDA-approved cosmetic treatment produces dramatic and permanent results for most patients. However, its expensive cost is shouldered by patients alone because the treatment is unlikely to be covered by health insurance.

Since this treatment requires surgery, it’s also associated with possible serious complications like loss of sensation, infection, perforation of the implant, suture detachment, and blood clots in the penile tissue. Dermal fillers are much safer for patients who aren’t ready or qualified for this type of surgery.
