To increase the girth of the penis, penile enhancement injections are a safe and effective alternative to surgery. This male enhancement technique does not change the angle of the penis, nor does it produce any scarring; therefore, these two common complications of surgery (and others) can be avoided while achieving comparable results. At Bayshore Plastic Surgery, board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Daniel Greenwald performs this straightforward procedure, which is similar to using injectable soft tissue fillers to improve the appearance of the face, for men throughout the Tampa, Florida, area.

As explained by Dr. Greenwald, dermal filler injections can be effective for penile enhancement because they can:

  • Provide structure under the skin’s surface
  • Stimulate the production of collagen, which naturally plumps the skin and underlying tissue
  • Add both volume and lift to the penis
  • Provide extra comfort and padding around a penile prosthesis (if applicable)

Depending on a man’s natural anatomical endowment, the girth of the shaft and head of the penis can be increased up to 20 percent with a single treatment. Additionally, when in a flaccid state, the penis may appear to be longer (injectable dermal fillers do not affect the length of the penis). If more girth is desired, additional injections can be scheduled.

While the procedure itself is simple, generally well tolerated, and can be completed in minutes in Dr. Greenwald’s office in Tampa, FL, the effects of penile enhancement injections can last for several months up to two years. The duration varies because every patient’s body degrades dermal fillers differently and has a different degree of skin, muscle, and tissue thickness.  Most men experience the full benefits for approximately six months, after which the penis gradually resumes its baseline size (prior to the procedure).

A highly skilled cosmetic surgeon who is certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery, Dr. Greenwald has achieved good results when using dermal fillers for penile enhancement.
