Introducing the J-shot: a Procedure With Little to No Downtime to Enhance the Male Anatomy
We are proud to offer penile enhancement procedures to our male patients using dermal fillers in Austin, TX. Dermal fillers are most commonly used to enhance the lips, cheeks, and jawlines, but they can now be injected into the penile shaft and glans (head) to increase length and girth. These injections have the greatest impact on girth specifically, but can also moderately increase the length.
Dr. Walden has experience performing procedures on the male and female genitalia as part of her extensive sexual wellness center that includes hormone evaluation by her Nurse Practitioner, shockwave therapy for ED, and penile enhancement procedures.
How Is Penile Enhancement With Injectables Performed?
At our office in Austin, Dr. Walden will perform this procedure using topical and local anesthesia. This treatment takes only 20-30 minutes and patients can resume normal activity directly after treatment. Through the use of filler, patients are able to see immediate results, with full results seen in 1-2 weeks time. Sexual activity can be performed about 48 hours after treatment in most cases. If you have any discomfort, please contact our office before engaging in sexual activity.
How Long Will Penile Enhancement Results Last?
The results seen from treatment depend on the product used. We offer Voluma XC, Juvederm Ultra Plus XC, and Radiesse for this treatment. Voluma XC is highly recommended as this is the most popular and longest-lasting filler treatment.
Because Dr. Walden uses hyaluronic acid fillers for these procedures, they have far lower risks than other methods, such as penile implants. Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring substance in the human body, so reactions to these injections are rare. These same filters are used across the face and the back of the hands to replace volume that has allowed wrinkles and creases to form, and areas such as the cheeks to become sunken. Also, if the patient doesn’t like his results, Dr. Walden can inject an enzyme known as hyaluronidase to instantly break down the hyaluronic acid and disperse the filler.
There are possible side effects with these injections. They include pain, swelling, bruising, bumps, lumps, development of cysts, skin irregularities, and inflammation. If a blood vessel becomes affected, this could lead to erectile dysfunction. Other effects can be an uneven distribution if the filler migrates.
Good candidates for these procedures with Dr. Walden are self-conscious about the width/girth of their penis. That is the primary change made with these injections, girth, although there can also be some change in length. Patients need to be aware that these are not permanent changes. The penis should maintain its larger shape for up to 18 months. Patients also need to realize these injections generally add girth, but not length. These changes are when the penis is in a flaccid state, as well.
These treatments are best for increasing the girth of the patient’s penis. They may add length, but those results are variable. These changes in patients can provide a serious boost in self-confidence and can create an enhanced sense of masculinity. There are no studies with specific statistics to quote at this point, as these are relatively new uses of dermal fillers.
That depends on the patient. Dr. Walden believes Juvéderm Voluma XC delivers the longest-lasting results, providing increased size for up to 18 months. At some point, the body will absorb the hyaluronic acid and the results will decrease. Another injection session with Dr. Walden can maintain the larger size of the patient’s penis.
