Hey all. After browsing the boards for months, I'm going to take the dive and get Ellanse at Avanti. I've made an appointment for next week. I've done a decent amount of research here, and think I've got a good idea of what to do for aftercare... My only problem is a stretcher.
I scheduled my appointment back in December, and ordered a stretcher at the same time from ESL40. As I'm sure some of you know, their website accepts payments... But doesn't ship anything out. I'm now a week away from my appointment and having trouble finding a stretching alternative for post-filler care.
I'll be posting before and after pictures of the procedure along with a write up, but I want to make sure everything goes smoothly before then. Does anyone have a suggestion for stretcher I could get at short notice that would work for this (grabs just the glans/head)?
you can use a bandage too, it will help to keep it in a uniform shapw and stop Turtling, the stretcher does matter as much as keeping the product in a good shape for long periods and massaging back into a desirable shape every few hours. you just want it slightly elongated. also pinch the skin and squeeze at all the injection points, the only two i didnt squeeze turned into nodules, the 4 other ones didnt. good luck

What exactly does your aftercare routine look like for this procedure?
I'm not exactly sure but I'm willing to bet it's very similar to the PMMA post-op protocol which can be found in numerous threads on both this and the old forum. I'm going to see if I can get my Sponsors to publish a general "what to expect" after care infographic to paint a better overall picture of what to expect.
I think that would be helpful. The aftercare threads are scattered all over and different recommendations for sleeves, extenders, supplements etc.
For those of us who are new to PE, having a guide of best practices, or after care manuals provided by sponsors of this forum and non-sponsors posted with their permission, I think would be most helpful to many of us to gain a clear understanding, especially since proper after care, is important to the overall success of the procedure.
Immediate and continuous stretcher (6-10 hours per day ) attached to glans only for 96 hours . Thereafter 2-3 hours a day till day 22
Massage (a video would be good ) from circ scar down, pressure on injection points , rolling , every 2-3 hours for 3-5 minutes for 5 days
Pumping after day 21 .. 3-5 pressure , 3-5 minutes .
No sex for 7 days
Stay as inactive as possible for 2-3 days after procedure .
Normal Exercise after day 4-5
Keep it warm
Stay in TJ for 2-3 days .
Effects on penis :
Swelling for 7-14 days
Bruising for 5-7 days
Product stays visible /malleable for 4-5 days
Lumps and nodules become visible once swelling drops .
Most attenuate within 3-12 weeks .
Residual lumps and nodules can be camouflaged ( additional product ) or treated with Kenalog in 1-3 later touch up visits ( at least 8 weeks after procedure ) (helps a lot ) and/or more product can be introduced .
Oh average gains ( for average penis ) : .5 inches for 10ml of Ellanse . Slightly less on average for subsequent rounds .
More than 25 percent increase in Girth could create the pig in look or disproportionate shaft to glans .
Very hard to get product at very base leaving a slight taco look only when Flaccid .
Lumps can be felt when Flaccid and seen best when stretched . Typically not visible or palpable Erect .
I’m sure there is tons missed — just trying to get the basic info .
I've taken some notes after looking at threads by Texas, Chester, Subtle77, and others. My final compilation (does not include whatever information I get from Avanti) is as follows:
Collagen supplements may help with Ellanse overall gain as it is a biostimulatory filler
Heat and roll every one to two hours
Basically, whenever you're awake, you should be in a stretcher/extending
Wait a week post procedure to have any sex
Use acetaminophen for pain
Roll at injection points to discourage clumping
Don't sleep without a sock (this is something I think is provided by the doctor?)
I forget who, but there were others who took some drugs to prevent Turtling (Prazosin) or stay hard (viagra) but I don't have my hands on either.
Yes, please do start a progress report. Ideally with as much detail and as many photos as possible. It's the little details that make the difference with progress reports. For example.,we've got loads of before and after photos, but the most important photos are those throughout the first few days, when guys are swollen etc, as they give a much better idea of what to expect immediately post op. These are invaluable when guys suddenly see their unit looking bruised and like a balloon and naturally freak out.
Good luck today and you are in great hands at Avanti Derma.
