Frequently Asked Questions About Penile Enhancement

What Is Penile Enhancement?

Penile enhancement, or penile enlargement, is a non-surgical procedure designed to increase the width or add “girth” to the penis.

What Can I Expect at the Initial Consultation?

During your initial consultation, Dr. Ortiz will discuss the procedure in-depth, learn about your goals, and provide you with an idea of what kind of results you can expect related to recovery, long-term effects, and additional treatments in the future.

How Is This Procedure Performed?

This is a minimally invasive procedure in which Dr. Ortiz injects hyaluronic acid filler under the penile shaft and skin. This is a safe, hyaluronic acid dermal filler that is also used to correct volume loss in cheeks and shape the chin. After the procedure, the penis is wrapped using mild pressure to minimize swelling and maintain symmetry. Generally, light activity can be done for a day or two and normal activity afterwards.

From the time the anesthesia takes effect to the final injections, the procedure only takes about 30 minutes.

What Is Included In the Cost?

The cost includes all consultations both before and after the procedure as well as the procedure itself and all materials used. We design this to be a comprehensive, no-hidden fee, cost to you.

What Kind of Anesthesia Is Used?

We want to ensure you have a comfortable experience with no discomfort, so we administer a very mild sedative and a nerve block to ensure the area is completely numb.

What Is Recovery Like?

After the nerve block wears off, there may be some mild discomfort that is easily controlled with pain medication. Some patients also report a bit of bruising, swelling, or inflammation in the area, but this is generally mild and doesn’t last long at all. Dr. Ortiz will provide you with instructions for post-injection care.

Will This Affect Sexual Abilities or Activity?

An overwhelming majority of patients report the same or improved sensitivity. In fact, many patients feel more confident following the procedure, allowing them to enjoy the sexual activity more.

When Can I Engage in Sexual Activity?

Dr. Ortiz generally recommends waiting one week after the procedure to resume sexual activity.

What Should I Expect After Penile Enhancement?

You will notice an immediate increase in girth after the procedure though the filler does expand over two weeks or so. After two weeks, you should see your final result, which is generally around a 20 to 30 percent increase in girth.

Is There Scarring Following the Procedure?

No, the injections are very small and heal quickly.

Is Penile Enhancement Permanent?

Hyaluronic fillers are designed to break down naturally over time, so your results can be expected to last around 12 to 24 months. Many men choose several treatments or annual “touch-ups” to maintain the increased size of their penis.

Are There Complications with Penile Enhancement?

The primary effects of the procedure are swelling, bruising, and discomfort. However, in very rare instances, the filler may settle into a lumpy appearance though massage can help even it out or additional treatments can improve symmetry.

Will Penile Enhancement Add Length?

No, this procedure will only add width to the penis, it doesn’t make it longer.

Can I Get This Procedure If I’m Uncircumcised?

Yes, this procedure can be performed on men who are either circumcised or uncircumcised.
