Priapus Shot ®: A specific way (protected by the US Patent & Trademark office) of using blood-derived growth factors to rejuvenate the penis.
Enjoy a Bigger & Harder Penis the Day of Treatment!
When I first started doing Cosmetic procedures using Juvederm and Restylane to sculpt the face, it occurred to me that it would be wonderful to do the same thing for the penis. If you can inject the mouth to give it a larger shape then why should you not be able to do the same thing with the penis? Here's the web site where I talk about my skills with that procedure.
Then Restylane came out with their research showing that after filling in the face, that there is new collagen production and the face gains permanent improvement in shape as dictated by the injection.
I became even more interested and considered injecting my own penis with Restylane.
Here's the potential complications of the hyaluronic acid fillers (Restylane and Juvederm):
With Restylane you can, especially in the forehead, have the side effect of the skin necrosis (it turns black and dies and must be surgically removed)! Not a pleasant thought when considering part of the skin of the face, so I never inject the forehead with Restylane where this is known to occur. But, even more disturbing it is to think of necrosis of the penis.
There can be some burning pain with injection of Restylane (it is hyaluronic acid). OK, I don't like admitting it but I'm not a big fan of pain, especially when it comes to my penis. Not very brave I suppose but I'd much rather have you punch me in the nose than give me a penis ache.
Lumpiness and nodules can occur with Juvederm and Restylane. Not common in my practice. But, I discontinued the use of another hyaluronic acid filler, Hydrelle, because I did see a higher than expected rate of nodule formation. In the face, a nodule is bad enough but in the penis, I just did not want to accept the possibility.
So, I never injected my penis with Restylane.
The Answer Knocks on My Door
After studying the biology of platelet-rich plasma (PRP), I invented a way to rejuvenate the face using this natural product (from the person's own body). I called it the Vampire Facelift ® and registered it with the US Patent & Trademark Office.
Here's what I found when using PRP in the face:
There's never been an allergic reaction or necrosis (this is coming from your own body, so the body does not react to it as a foreign substance).
Bruising is minimal if at all.
There's no lumpiness.
The effects last at least 18 months and could be longer or even permanent (as if the skin actually became younger).
There's actual growth of new tissue by stimulation of unipotent stem cells. So the change in shape is not from something foreign being in the body but from the body actually rejuvenating and growing!
The PRFM stimulates new blood flow with new blood vessels (neovascularization).
I think that you can see that all of the 6 advantages listed above would be good for the penis as well.
What the Research Shows
So, then I went to the medical literature, to see what other experts around the world are thinking, and here's some of what I found:
When PRP is injected into nasolabial folds with improvement seen immediately. There was some fading of the improvement over the first few days, then the tissue continued to regenerate and return to near the state of injection by the 12th week. At no point did the tissue go back to the state before injection. None of the patients had any fibrosis, harness, lumpiness, irregularity, or restriction of movement. There have been over 50,000 injections of Selphyl and never one allergic reaction.
In January of (2010), researchers at the University of California School of Medicine injected adipose-tissue derived stem cells into the penis of diabetic rats. The result was that the rats. The results were to "improve erectile function and to alter the micro architecture of the corpus cavernosumwith an "increase in the number of endothelial cells" in the corpus cavernosum. Translation: the rats had a harder penis with more tissue--harder and bigger!Notice: In the article, they report that the number of stem cells was so small that they think that the results came from the "paracrine" effects of the fat. This means that they thought the growth factors in the fat are what caused the improvement. These are the same types of growth factors found in huge quantities in the PRFM of Selphyl
Just a little reading shows that PRFM is being considered for many diseases that require healing--as in NEW TISSUE GROWTH--that's what healing is. Sure, insurance is not paying yet, but I hope that you realize the conflict of interest when insurance agencies are required to make a profit (by corporate law) while simultaneously appearing to care about your health.
If you "Goggle" platelet rich fibrin matrix or stem cells and healing, you will be amazed that this therapy is not used more often for a wide variety of problems.
Here's where I talk on the news about using PRP in the face (I called it the Vampire Facelift ®).
Vampire Facelift ® discussed on Dr. Oz by another physician (uses the same principles as the Priapus Shot®):...
Go here and see where I filled a scar with PRP and caused new tissue to fill in the hole.Also, scroll to the bottom of the page to see how I plumped the breast using PRP.
Here's where my co-investigator, Samuel Wood, MD, PhD, discusses another procedure that we developed called the O-Shot®:
IMPORTANT: The woman who's breast I injected, said that she got renewed sensation of the nipple (she had suffered with decreased sensation after breast implants followed by breast feeding 3 children). With the neovascularization (new blood vessels), there also appears to be some nerve regeneration. As with the diabetic rats in the study quoted above, for the man who has diabetes and erectile dysfunction with some decreased sensation and nerve damage, Selphyl could be a near miracle.
So, if the Priapus Shot ™does what it should, then using it on the penis should result in all of the following:
Strengthen the penis
Straighten the penis
Increase circulation within the penis for a healthier organ.
Make other therapies work better (if you still need Viagra or Cialis, then it will work better for you).
Increase sensation and pleasure (helps correct the damage from diabetes).
Proven to work in multiple studies
Increase size by design (Can place more in base or in the head or wherever makes for best result)
No allergic reactions (using your own body's fluids).
Minimal pain (no burning from the PRFM since it's from your own body)
Now, after actually doing the procedure, the results have been as expected.
Here's my partner and co-investigator, Samuel Wood, MD, PhD discussing the Priapus Shot ® on the news:
Here's the words of the lover of a man who was treated with the Priapus Shot®:
I hesitate to report this (it sounds too much like an infomercial) but I don't want to hold back the whole story. The lover of a man I treated actually said to him, "This feels like I'm having sex with my hard plastic dildo!" He reported that she came back the next day for quick sex and just to play with her new toy--his penis.
Another patient wrote to me in a text, "One inch longer in girth and length and concrete!"
If You Wish to Be Treated
Here's the Steps of the Priapus Shot™:
A numbing lidocaine cream is applied to the penis.
Blood is drawn from the arm (just like when you have a blood test done).
The blood is put in a centrifuge and spun for 6 minutes at 11,000 g's.
The platelets are then at the top of the tube of liquid (red cells and white cells at the bottom).
The platelets are transferred into another tube where a few drops of calcium chloride solution trick the platelets into thinking that they are in the body and the body has been injured.
The platelets release growth factors into the liquid of the tube.
The liquid is transferred into a syringe and injected into the penis using a tiny needle and in a way that distributes the growth factors in the proper way.
If you wish to be considered for this procedure, you can go here to see providers of the Priapus Shot ®
I think the day will come when these injections are given routinely in the same way we tune-up a car with a little STP to clean the fuel injectors. Instead, we will use PRFM to clean out the circulation of the penis and grow new blood vessels.
Question: I did some research and most people say it takes three weeks to notice results but you said you saw it immediately. Please explain? Could it be that everyone reacts differently to it? thanks and talk soon.
Answer: If you read the numbers on the scale in the Selphyl research that I posted above, then you will see something similar to what I have observed. The initial volume is from the combination of the platelets and the serum (or water) in the blood plus all the growth factors in the water that the activated platelets are starting to release.
Then over the next three days some of the the water is absorbed by the body. Then there is the growth of new tissue that continues for at least 12 weeks--bringing the volume back up to close to where it was with the initial injection.
So, volume goes up IMMEDIATELY, then goes down to various degrees but slowly over the next three days. In some people this decrease in volume is very small, in others it is a more noticeable decrease. In some, I'm seeing a growth back to where it was with the initial injection or better. In others, there is growth but not quite back to where we started. Smokers have the least amount of growth.
Again, I am speaking mostly from my experience with injecting the face. I see no reason why the same would not happen with the penis, but my experience there is less.
Question: How much growth can I expect?
Answer: 10 to 20% increase in length and girth. An inch in length (a little more) and in girth was seen in the first two patients in the first month. Girth came first (with the injection), then length (with continued growth). I do not yet know if a second injection at 4 to 8 weeks will cause another growth spurt.
Question: Where is the injection put?
Answer: Directly into the corpus cavernosum with a small needle, and into the head of the penis--in a way almost exactly as done with those who use injections for erectile dysfunction.
Question: What about scar tissue?
Answer: If you look at men who inject 3 to 5 times a week over many years for treatment for erectile dysfunction, there is about a 10% incidence of scar tissue formation. This is with multiple injections for years. With this procedure, there is only one injection, so the chances of scar tissue should be almost nothing. In the face, there has not been the report of any fibrosis or scar tissue formation.
Question: Does it hurt?
Answer: I use a lidocaine cream (a strong version of what you might find in a spray to kill the pain of sunburn). It's the same cream I use on the face before injecting the lips or other areas with Juvederm. The pain is about the same as a normal shot to the buttocks, perhaps less.
