I just wanted to let everyone know that on Aug 12, I had the glans and shaft (lipen D and P) procedure done by Dr Cho and I know I should of started a progrees report earlier, but for whatever reason I did not. I also do not have any pics with my measurements. I do have a pic of my Erect
penis that I sent to a girl prior to the procedure, but it does not show the measurements. My measurements prior depending of EQ ranges from BPEL
6 to 6 1/4 and my Girth
ranges from 4 3/8 to 4 1/2 from mid shaft to base and my head is very small at 3 1/2 when Erect
. I\'m fully aware that\'s real hard to follow and get a good assessment on how successful the procedure went without any visual proof, but again I do have a pic of my penis not with the measurements and Dr Cho took before and after Flaccid
pics, which are good to have, but it\'s not a good indicator on how successful the procedure went. Don\'t get me wrong, I want to increase my Flaccid
size, but I\'m mostly concern with my Erect
size. Lastly, I know my Dick
and I really do not need any pics with measurements to see if the procedure was a success. I said this, but I\'ll start taking pics with measurements on a weekly basics to track my progress. I\'m considering another round in Nov and I want to know and track how much I gained.
I do not have a long track record with PE, back in \'06 I bought the size genetics with the pro solution pills and the PE gym membership. I did it for like 3-4 months religiously and I think I gained like 1/4 Inch
, but again I did not take before and after pics (you think I would of learned my lesson back then). So it\'s hard to remember what I gained. I did not do any further PE after that, until now.
Before I start on how the procedure went.... have to point out that I owe a great deal and I\'m very grateful to everyone on this forum, especially does that posted their experiences with Dr Elist. I was going to see Dr Elist and get the implants, but 3 weeks prior I found this forum. Thank God I found this forum prior, I\'m still counting my lucky stars. And because of this forum, which I have read the progress report from everyone like 3 X, I was able to make an informed decision on getting the PMMA
procedure. I always hated that I had a very small head and thin/\"normal\" Girth
. Once I knew that there was a doctor in Korea that did both, I knew that I was going to get it done. I thought that I was going to be the first one on this forum to get the glans done, but I got PM by someone that wants to stay anonymous - he got the glans procedure done in early June and he\'s extremely happy with the results. He and jimmyjames have helped me tremendously...it\'s always easier when someone was gone thru what you are going thru. Thank you guys!
I live closer to Korea than to Mexico, so that made the decision to see Dr Cho easier. Of course, the main reason was that he did the glans. I have been exchanging emails with the Doc and he answered all my questions and when I arrived at the clinic I had additional concerns and he again answered all my questions. His english is not great, but it\'s not that bad, you\'ll able to communicate with him, you just have to take it slow.
My impression of Dr Cho - he is very personal and easy going, it\'s apparent that he\'s passionate and loves what he does. Even though, he charges you an arm and a leg (you get what you paid for and I rather pay more for quality), he\'s more concerned about aesthetics than injecting you with whole bunch of PMMA
and making more money. For glans he charges $700 per cc and he usually injects 5 - 8 cc. For shaft he charges $700 per syringe and each syringe contains 3.2 cc.
He does not have you fill out any medical paperwork, or any liability form. He just takes your name, DOB and phone number. After discussing the procedure, he takes me to a small room right next to his office with his assistant, he inspect my penis and he notice that I have a lot of extra/loose skin behind at the bottom of my shaft. He tells me that this is not good and that he will have to inject the lipen a little different - more in the front of shaft than behind. I started to think negative thoughts, but he assure me that he has seen this before and the results come out good. He said that if come back in Nov that he would remove the extra skin for 1K. We do not go into details about this and he injects local anesthesia and then he goes to work on my shaft -I want to say that he did like 6 injection points and he injected 7 syringes (22.4 cc). After he inspect the shaft and is happy with the work, he administers anesthesia on my glans and starts to go to work. He uses just one syringe and he injects on the bottom of my glans on 2 different sides. He then makes 2 injections point right by my urethral opening/tip right by my hole. After he finish, he tells me that he usually does not inject lipen D around the urethral opening but because my head is so small that I needed it. I ask him how many patients he has done this to and he said that when Dr Casavantes
came to see how he did the glans procedure that he performed 20 glans procedures in front of Dr C and out of those 20, he injected 10 patients at the tip. After his assistant wraps my penis, Dr Cho gives me clear instructions to keep the wrap as long as possible and only to unwrap it when I shower, but to wrap it quickly again. I asked if I should message it, but he was adamant not message it and that I\'ll get better results with just the wrap. He then injects me with steroids, because I was warned by the Doc and by the anonymous that I\'ll get severe pain after the glans procedure. He gives me steroid pills and pain killers. And I return to my hotel.
About an hour after I arrived to the hotel, my glans start to hurt like hell. I take the pain killers, but the pain will not go away, but after an hour the pain finally subside. But I get the same pain like every 4 hrs and I take the pain killer and the pain goes away.
The next day I go and visit the Doc and he inspect my penis and he ask me how many pain killers and steroids I had taken. I tell him that I took about 5 pain killers and 3 steroids. He tells me that I took too many and that\'s why my penis is not swollen. I told him that I followed his instruction, to take the pain killers when I felt severe pain and to take 2 steroids per day, that I only took one extra pill of steroids. He tells me to stop taking the steroids and to only take the pain killers when the pain is severe that the pain has to be on a scale of 8 out 10. And to not take more than 4 pain killers a day. I do remember him saying not to take more than 4 pain killers a day, but when that pain kick-in, I really did not care. I ask him if taking too many meds could effect my results. He said that the most important thing is my health and that I should not be taking that much medicine. That night I flew out of Korea and 13 hrs later I was home. I still have pain, but not as severe as yesterday, but it still hurts like hell.
I paid 8K for the procedure and I spent roughly 2K on travel for a grand total of 10K(damn I\'m good at math) . I know that is a lot of dough, but this is the route that I wanted to take.
I\'ll start measuring weekly starting next Tuesday, if I do not have any pain and will post the pics and status every Tuesday, God willing. But, if you have any questions/concerns, feel free.
I have attached a couple of pics:
1. My Erect
2 and 3 are before and after pics at Dr Cho\'s office
4 and 5 are 4 hrs after the procedure
and the last two are my current status
