Using Juvederm for Penis Enhancement

Some men may be reluctant to receive a penis enlargement surgery due to the high risk of complications, but they still may feel self-conscious. Dermal fillers offer a less invasive way of enhancing the penis, helping to increase the girth of the head and shaft. Most patients only think of the length when it comes to penis size. Contrary to popular belief, it is the width of the penis (not its length) that brings the most pleasure during intercourse. Based on a research by the University of Texas, about 90% of partners prefer an increased penile width. In contrast, only 10% of them prefer an increased penile length.

Juvederm injectable gel can be administered into the glans (and the penile shelf) to increase the size of the penis. For many years, penis enlargement using dermal fillers was widely performed in Asia, delivering dramatic, visible results. After obtaining FDA approval in 2004, the procedure become increasingly popular in the US. Taking around an hour to complete, the penis enhancing procedure is generally safe and unlikely to cause serious complications. Juvederm injectable gel is usually administrated using small needles. A local anesthetic can be used as needed to relieve injection-related pain and discomfort. In general, Juvederm fillers can increase the penile circumference by 20%. Keep in mind that the enlargement results are temporary, and will eventually disappear. However, Juvederm is reasonably long-lasting and can last for at least a year.

However, misinformation is often prevalent and some online information can be grossly inaccurate. We have complied a list of the most commonly asked questions and answers below, so that patients can make an informed decision. Patients should consult their doctors if they have other questions about the procedure.

Why do practitioners use different types of injectable fillers for penis enhancement?

With so many injectable fillers available on the market, choosing the right treatment can be a daunting task. Practitioners tend to have different preferences in treatment approaches, and these preferences are influenced by factors such as cost and effectiveness. A popular dermal filler is Juvederm Voluma. Specially designed for penis enlargement, the formulation is infused with lidocaine as a local anesthetic. This helps to reduce pain and discomfort associated with the filler injection. Thanks to its unique formulation, Voluma does not migrate and delivers reliable results that last. Juvederm Voluma is generally safe and well tolerated. It is important to note that that prices for Juvederm Voluma can vary among clinics. Apart from penis enhancement, Juvederm fillers can also be used for other purposes such as minor corrections and facial contouring.

How much are penis fillers?

The cost of the treatment largely depends on the number of injections. Generally, a total of 1 to 8 syringes are needed to achieve satisfactory results. Prior to the penis enhancement procedure, practitioners should determine the number of injectables needed based on a face-to-face consultation. They should also examine the photos in order to make an accurate cost estimation. When seeking a penis enlargement procedure, find the best price by visiting several clinics (which tend to offer different prices for the same injectable filler). Usually, practitioners are able to offer discount for patients who need multiple syringes.

Is the procedure painful?

Fortified with the high-performance lidocaine, Juvederm Voluma involves minimal pain and discomfort. Functioning as a local anesthetic, lidocaine is able to numb the treatment site through its inhibitory actions on voltage-gated sodium channels. Ice packs can be applied as needed for pain relief. Plus, they help to constrict the blood vessels, thereby preventing bruising. Products such as Arnica can also be used prior to (and after) the injections to reduce bruising.

Which clinic should I choose for penis enlargement procedures?

Due to the ever-growing demand for penis enlargement, there are increasingly more aesthetics clinics that offer the procedure. To ensure safe and effective results, choose a reputable aesthetic clinic or provider that has experience with injectables.

Can Juvederm injections for penis enhancement cause any downtime?

Juvederm injectables are unlikely to cause significant downtime. Patients can resume their daily activities right after the treatment. Discuss aftercare methods with your injector prior to treatment.

Can I have sex right after a dermal filler penis enhancement?

It is advisable to wait for 2 days (or 48 hours) before engaging in any sexual activity.

Can my partner be able to tell that I underwent the procedure? How does the penis look immediately after the injection?

In some cases, patients can experience minor bruising. It usually takes a few weeks before it is stabilized. After the enhancement, the penis will appear wider (but not longer).

How effective are dermal fillers for penis enhancement? How much of an improvement can I expect?

In general, Juvederm filler can achieve a 20% increase in the penile circumference; however, results may vary among individuals. Factors such as the initial penile size can affect the results.

What are the contraindications associated with Juvederm fillers?

As with most injectable fillers, Juvederm is contraindicated in those with a known hypersensitivity to hyaluronic acid or any other inactive ingredients in the filler. While uncommon, using an injectable in allergic individuals can result in severe hypersensitivity reactions.  

What are the potential complications related to injectable fillers for penis enlargement?

Having a good safety profile, Juvederm fillers are not likely to cause serious complications. The most common complications are skin bruising and mild swelling. To reduce the risk of complications, choose an experienced practitioner that is suitably trained for penis enhancement procedures.

Why doesn’t my doctor provide penis enhancement treatments?

While penis enlargement is becoming more common, it remains a taboo subject for a lot of people (including some doctors). Penis enhancement using dermal fillers is a relatively simple procedure. Juvederm injectables for penis are often injected the same way a facial filler is administered. Your practitioner may not wish to provide this treatment.

How long can the results last?

The manufacturer of Juvederm claims that the results can last for about 1 year. Due to variations in the way hyaluronic acid is metabolized, the actual duration of results can vary significant among patients. The difference in duration of actions can also be attributed to the inherent difference in the thickness of tissues, muscles and skin. Over time, the effects may gradually disappear as hyaluronic acid is resorbed into the surrounding tissues.

What if I live out of town (where there is no access to penis enhancement procedure)?

Some clinics accept out-of-town patients for penile filler injections (and for phalloplasty). Call them for more information. Some of the clinics are able to provide a phone consultation. 

So, what’s the next step?

Contact clinics/providers to set up a consultation session. Ask the practitioners if you have any question about phalloplasty, penis enhancement surgery, or penis enhancement with Juvederm fillers. You may also visit their websites to learn more about the procedures.
