WHAT IS PENIS AUGMENTATION?

Penis augmentation is a non-surgical treatment that involves the injection of dermal fillers into the penile shaft to increase the thickness and flaccid length of the penis. Hyaluronic acid based dermal filler is the material most commonly used to enhance the penis.

This type of dermal filler is our preferred option to increase penis size as it is safe, reversible and biocompatible, being naturally found in the penile tissue. The dermal filler version has been modified so that it lasts longer once injected.

HOW DOES PENIS FILLER WORK?

Penis filler works by adding volume around the penile shaft. This gives an immediate increase in the flaccid and erect thickness of the penile shaft. The added weight and structural support also works to prevent shrinkage, increasing your average flaccid length and reducing turtling.

CAN THE PENIS FILLER PREVENT TURTLING?

Yes, penis fillers are a great option for men concerned about turtling of the penis. Turtling is where the penis retracts, becoming very small when flaccid.

Dermal filler prevents turtling due to the increased rigidity of the subcutaneous tissues preventing penis retraction.

DOES IT MATTER IF I AM CIRCUMCISED / UNCIRCUMCISED?

No because penis fillers can be performed on both circumcised and uncircumcised men.

CAN PENIS FILLERS ADD THICKNESS TO MY PENIS?

An effective way to increase the thickness of your penis is with injections of dermal filler. Dermal filler adds volume beneath the skin of the penile shaft, increasing the circumference.

Other penis thickening treatments are either ineffective, or very invasive surgical penoplasty procedures.

Penis filler has the advantage of taking less than an hour, having no downtime, and being fully reversible. It is the gold-standard treatment option when it comes to enhancing penile girth.

CAN PENIS FILLERS INCREASE MY PENIS LENGTH?

Penis fillers can be used to increase the average flaccid length of the penis. This is achieved by the added weight and structural support the fillers add to the penile shaft. They reduce shrinkage, taking you from a ‘grower’ to a ‘shower’, reducing turtling and giving you a longer-looking flaccid penis.

ARE PENIS FILLERS WORTH IT?

Penis fillers have an extremely high satisfaction rate. This is because they are simple, low-risk, quick, reversible and have limited downtime. They achieve a consistent increase in the size of the penis.

CAN PENIS FILLERS INCREASE MY PENIS GIRTH?

Yes, you can increase the girth of your penis. An effective way to increase penile girth is with dermal filler injections such as these. Penis dermal fillers add volume to the shaft, increasing the circumference.

Other treatment options include dermal fat grafting phalloplasty. A surgical procedure with more risk and downtime.

Traction devices won’t increase girth but can be used to help increase length, however results are highly variable and require a lot of time and dedication to achieve a significant result.

ARE PENIS FILLERS BETTER THAN A PENOPLASTY?

Penis fillers have a number of key advantages over a penoplasty. Penoplasty is a surgical procedure, whereas penis fillers are non-surgical.

They are therefore lower in cost, come with lower risks, have less downtime and can be fully reversed.

Penis fillers are ideal for most men looking to increase the size of the penis. A penoplasty is more suitable for men with conditions such as a micropenis, or those looking for a permanent solution who are accepting of the risks and downtime that come with surgery.

ARE PENIS FILLERS BETTER THAN PHALLOPLASTY?

Phalloplasty involves using skin flaps, which are areas of skin moved from one area of the body to another. The skin flap is then reshaped, contoured and reattached to the groin to create the penis.

Compared to a phalloplasty, penis fillers have many benefits. Whilst not permanent, they can achieve significant, long-lasting increases in the size of your penis.

The procedure is non-surgical and takes around 60 minutes to inject, and can be reversed and adjusted if needed.

HOW MUCH FILLER IS REQUIRED TO INCREASE MY PENIS SIZE?

Most men take 10-20mls of penis filler to achieve a satisfactory increase in the size of their penis.

The amount of dermal filler you need to augment your penis will depend on your starting size, the tightness of your skin shaft and how much of a difference you want to achieve.

The bigger the penis, the looser the skin or the greater the size goals, the more filler will be needed.

You can always build up your result over time if needed. Starting with a conservative amount is often a popular choice for men who aren’t too sure on how much of a size gain they want.

Dr Philippe will advise you on dermal filler dosage at your initial consultation which you can book here.

IS PENIS AUGMENTATION MEDICARE CLAIMABLE?

No penis augmentation is a non-surgical cosmetic procedure, and is not claimable on medicare.

CAN I CLAIM VIA PRIVATE HEALTH?

You are welcome to check with your private health cover, however it is unlikely that penile augmentation is covered on your policy.

DO YOU OFFER PAYMENT PLANS?

We follow Australian Health Practitioner Regulation Agency (AHPRA) Guidelines and therefore do not offer payment plans for cosmetic procedures.

We require that full payment of the procedure is paid before your appointment.

Please contact our friendly reception staff for more information.

WHAT TYPE OF FILLER IS USED?

The most common type of filler used to enhance the penis is a dermal filler based on a naturally occurring compound known as hyaluronic acid. This is the gold standard option for the following reason:

  • Achieves natural-feeling results
  • Biocompatible product with years of safety data
  • Completely reversible for added safety
  • No effect on natural penile tissue

Other less common options include collagen stimulating injections and permanent fillers.

Permanent fillers are not ideal as any complications may require surgery to fix. Collagen stimulating injections are not reversible, and can make future treatments much more technically challenging owing to the fibrous tissue they produce in the shaft.

HOW IS THE PENIS FILLER ADMINISTERED?

Following your comprehensive and confidential consultation, the penis will be cleaned, marked and numbed with strong anaesthetic to ensure a comfortable procedure.

Tiny pilot holes will then be made at key areas along the shaft. Through these holes, a fine, blunt-tipped dermal filler cannula will be inserted beneath the skin.

Dermal fillers will then be precisely placed along the penile shaft using the cannula.

After the penis filler has been placed, it will be moulded smooth to ensure an even result.

The penis will be cleaned again and a dressing applied.

HOW LONG DOES THE PENIS FILLER TAKE?

Enhancing the penis with dermal filler generally takes under an hour, however we always advise patients to book off around 90 minutes per treatment to ensure your comfort and time for recovery.

IS THE PROCEDURE PAINFUL?

When performed correctly by an appropriately qualified and experienced health practitioner, there should be minimal discomfort felt from penis filler injections.

 

At Verve Men’s Clinic, our resident penis filler doctor and qualified Specialist Urologist Dr Philippe Wolanski, uses a careful approach, strong numbing injections and premium products that contain local anaesthetic. This ensures you will experience minimal discomfort at your penis filler appointment.

WHERE IS THE DERMAL FILLER INJECTED INTO THE PENIS?

Dermal filler is injected along and around the penile shaft between the two main fascial layers. This layer is ideal for the injection of dermal filler as it is void of any important structures, simply containing mostly fatty tissue that dermal filler integrates very well with.

WHEN WILL I SEE A RESULT FROM THE PROCEDURE?

You will see an immediate increase in the size of your penis after having dermal filler injections. It is important to allow time for any treatment-related swelling to resolve and wait 2-4 weeks for the filler to settle.

At this time you can assess the final result and add more dermal filler if you would like further increases in the size of your penis.

We also advise that patients avoid sex or masturbation for at least 7 days post-procedure.

HOW LONG DO PENIS FILLERS LAST?

Most men find that their penis fillers last 18 – 24 months.

Occasionally, you may need to build up your result with a few sessions. Those that have built up the size of their penis with dermal filler find that it is not uncommon for the result to last even longer than anticipated.

You can come back for additional treatment whenever you like as long as medically suitable. Some men return more frequently for smaller touch-ups, while others wait longer before having a more comprehensive maintenance treatment.

HOW SOON CAN I HAVE ANOTHER TREATMENT OF PENIS FILLERS?

You can have more filler injected as early as 7 days after your previous treatment as long as all of the swelling has settled and the penis has healed. 4 weeks is the ideal minimum interval, however if you have travelled a long distance to receive the treatment, then it is usually ok to shorten the time between sessions for your convenience.

HOW DO I PREPARE FOR PENIS FILLERS?

In preparation for your penis filler injections, you will be asked to adhere to the following before-care instructions:

  • Closely trim the treatment area of its hair the day before your appointment. Do not shave the area as this can increase risk of infection
  • Shower and clean the area a few hours before your appointment
  • Avoid consuming alcohol within 24 hours of your appointment
  • Refrain from intense exercise immediately before your appointment
WHAT CAN I EXPECT AFTER THE PROCEDURE?

After having penis filler, you can drive yourself to work, or home immediately after the procedure. You will have a bandage applied to the penis, and this should ideally be kept in place.

A prescription will be provided for medications to help the healing process. You will need to take these for a few days to reduce the risk of infection and improve the result.

You’ll need to wait at least 7 days before resuming sexual activity to ensure a great result, and to minimise infection risk.

WHEN CAN I EXERCISE AFTER THE PROCEDURE?

You can participate in gentle exercise immediately after having penis filler.

For moderate or intense exercise, you should wait a few days to allow the penis to heal.

HOW LONG SHOULD I WAIT TO HAVE SEX AFTER THE PROCEDURE?

You need to abstain from sex for at least 7 days following your penis filler treatment. This is to reduce the risk of infection and ensure that the filler settles evenly.

WHEN CAN I MASTURBATE AFTER THE PROCEDURE?

You should wait at least 7 days after your penis filler before masturbating. Masturbation can shift the penis filler out of position, especially in the first week, and can increase the risk of infection.

ARE PENIS FILLERS SAFE?

When performed by an appropriately qualified and experienced health practitioner, penis fillers are categorised as a low risk treatment.

Visiting an experienced, doctor-led cosmetic clinic with expertise in penis filler is the best way to ensure that your treatment is performed safely.

At Verve Men’s Clinic, our resident penis filler doctor is Dr Philippe Wolanski who is a qualified Urological Surgeon with almost 20 years of urological experience under his belt.

You can book an initial consultation with Dr Philippe here.

WHAT ARE THE RISKS OF PENIS FILLERS?

The most common side effects from penis fillers are temporary redness and swelling, and bruising and/or bleeding at injection sites. These will resolve quickly after your treatment.

Low and more uncommon risks include infection, lumps, bumps and contour irregularities. Many of these can be corrected using penis dermal filler dissolving should they occur.

These can be corrected immediately by our doctors using dermal filler dissolving agents, should they occur.

In very rare cases, the body can have an allergic reaction to other compounds such as the anaesthetic within the filler.

WHO IS NOT SUITABLE FOR PENIS FILLERS?

The following groups are not suitable for penis fillers:

  • Aged under 18
  • Those with a micropenis
  • People with significant congenital or acquired deformities affecting the penis
  • Men with certain medical conditions such as bleeding disorders
  • Men with active skin infections in the genitalia area
  • Men with unreasonable expectations about what can be achieved with penis filler

You can discuss any concerns you have with our doctors at your initial penile augmentation consultation which you can book here.

WILL PENIS FILLER AFFECT MY ABILITY TO ACHIEVE AN ERECTION?

Penis filler does not affect your ability to achieve an erection, and it should not affect the firmness of your erectile tissues.

WILL PENIS FILLERS CHANGE PENILE SENSATION?

Penis filler does not change the sensation or sensitivity of the penis.

CAN PENIS FILLER MOVE OR MIGRATE?

Penis filler migration is very rare when the procedure has been performed carefully and correctly.

WILL I HAVE LUMPS AND BUMPS AFTER THE PROCEDURE?

Very slight lumps and bumps do occasionally occur after penis fillers. The risk of lumps and bumps is significantly minimised by injecting the dermal filler carefully into the shaft of the penis, and by ensuring that you carefully follow all aftercare instructions.

If there are any lumps or bumps after having penis fillers, they can be treated with dermal filler dissolving agents.

ARE PENIS FILLERS HARMFUL?

Penis fillers are not harmful to the body. Penis filler is made of hyaluronic acid, a highly biocompatible molecule that is found naturally in the penile tissues.

In very rare cases, the body can have an allergic reaction to other compounds such as the anaesthetic within the filler.
