WHAT CAN I EXPECT DURING MY MALE ENHANCEMENT PROCEDURE?
This procedure is performed comfortably, safely and privately at our Palo Alto office using just local (numbing) anesthesia. At Illuminate Plastic Surgery, our practitioners are trained to perform this procedure both safely and without discomfort. Anywhere from six to ten syringes of Voluma are fanned along the shaft of the penis at a time. Bruising and soreness can occur immediately after treatment and the majority of men will take Tylenol for the first few days.
HOW LONG IS RECOVERY TIME FROM A MALE ENHANCEMENT PROCEDURE?
The great thing about this minimally invasive treatment is that there is virtually no downtime. Patients can return to work the same day, exercising a few days later, and sex after a few weeks. Soreness and bruising are expected after treatment but will subside within a week or so. We recommend you avoid masturbation for two weeks after the procedure and refrain from sex for four weeks after the procedure, after which you are free to resume any activities as normal.
YOU ARE NOT ALONE.
Dissatisfaction with penis size can lead to decreased self-esteem, feelings of embarrassment with a partner or at the pool or gym, and a lackluster sex life. According to RealSelf, interest in penis enlargement has increased 120% compared to 2017. In the past, some men who wished to have a larger penis refrained from taking action because of concerns about the risks of surgery, but male enhancement with HA fillers is a much safer, minimally invasive alternative to penile implants that many men are seeing as an ideal option for treating dissatisfaction with penis size.
DOES THE MALE ENHANCEMENT PROCEDURE TREAT LENGTH OR GIRTH?
Juvéderm Voluma® is an excellent hyaluronic acid (HA) filler at creating structure and adding volume. While the goal of the male enhancement procedure is to increase girth, the added weight from the filler will often lengthen the penis as well. Men are thrilled to see a change in their penis immediately after the treatment but are even happier to learn that the results will continue to get better over the next two weeks.
HOW LONG WILL RESULTS LAST?
Results from the male enhancement treatment will last for about one year. Most men will require a touchup at this time to maintain their results. It is unlikely that touch-ups will require as much product as the initial treatment.
HOW MUCH DOES MALE ENHANCEMENT COST?
The average cost of male enhancement using Juvéderm Voluma® can vary widely depending on the amount of change you are seeking and the number of injections required. It is typically somewhere between $6,000 – $10,000. Most men are so pleased with the change that they end up adding more product than they initially anticipated. If you would like to finance your treatment, we recommend applying through CareCredit or Alphaeon. Additionally, many of our patients will choose to apply for credit cards with longer terms at 0% interest.
