14 Mar Which is best for penis enlargement – fillers or PRP?
Here at Harley Street Emporium we’re getting an increasing number of men enquiring about penis enlargement and the options available.Many ask about fillers – but are they the best option?
According to GP and aesthetics practitioner, Dr Unnati Desai, fillers have some significant downsides in comparison to PRP and there are a number of things you need to consider when making your treatment choice.
Fillers are used in cosmetic surgery to plump up and fill out the tissue and are best known for their use on the face and lips. When used in large enough amounts they can help add girth and, in some cases, length to a penis.
To understand how its important to understand the different types of filler and what they’re used for. Most of us will be well acquainted with lip and cheek fillers. In most cases, these are used to plump up and enhance a facial feature. Usually, they contain nothing other than hyaluronic acid that will over time be absorbed and disposed of by our bodies.
These are the kind of fillers that, like Kylie Jenner’s lips, are reversible if you inject an enzyme that effectively dissolves them.
Other fillers, used for facial rejuvenation, can contain microsphere of encapsulated proteins that encourage collagen production – these are the ones than can be used to increase length. These are not dissolvable.
Why does that matter? Just like injecting filler into the face, there is a risk that if you hit a blood vessel you could block or disrupt the blood flow in the area which could cause tissue death or affect function.
says Dr Unnati.
The other advantages of PRP over fillers is in duration of result and, potentially, cost.
Fillers for penile enlargement require a considerable amount of filler and can cost around £3000. PRP costs £1200 per session if its the ‘Vampire’ brand. There will be an improvement after one session but most men will require 2, perhaps even 3 treatments.
