TOPIC: Why do some doctors induce an erection before performing a filler surgery?

Why do some doctors induce an erection before performing a filler surgery? 1 year 11 months ago #1308698664

Long time lurker, first time I believe posting.

My questions are:

Why do some doctors perform filler surgeries while the patient is erect or semi-erect when some doctors don’t?

Does it make a difference in the final aesthetics?

Is one way less safe than the other?

Thanks!

The premise is that the doctor can get a more "even" fill of the injected product, creating less lumps and nodules.

How well it works in practice I don't know, but in theory it sounds like more of a marketing technique than a surgical technique. What I mean by this is that your penis will eventually go Flaccid shortly after your surgery, and the window of time your penis can lump & clump can be as long as days...making the erect approach kind of unnecessary.

Not saying doing it erect is a bad thing, I just don't see it really making much of a difference when you're dealing with fillers.

Hi Kev,

When I started about 6 years ago I used Caverject to get an erection on all of my patients. I thought it would help me get a better spread of product. Sometimes I would find a patient looked good erect or Flaccid but not both and with Foreskin retracted being the most difficult to get right. As I usually do 2 session for most treatments I then moved to doing 1 erect and 1 Flaccid. There is a risk, especially in young fit guys of priasm (prolonged erection) with caverject, which is not fun. So now, if I can avoid using it I do. But when I think it can help, or if a guy says there is a irregularity that can only be seen with erection then I will use Caverject.

To be honest, I've never thought of that... it definitely makes a lot of sense if we're talking Revision & Repair work, where "ridges" or "nodules" are perhaps more discernible in an erect state. That's why we have Specialists & Surgeons like Dr. Oates around, to help explain these topic(s) in their totality.

I should say, however, my bias against induced erections stem from a highly unethical and unscrupulous clinic (which wont be named) who employed the technique and touted it as a reason they were cutting-edge. If a legitimate practitioner is finding consistent success with the technique, then more power to him or her. Like I said originally, the technique in it of itself doesn't seem terribly risky (relatively speaking), and Dr. Oates pointed out the necessary precautions that can be taken if a patient were to undergo an Induced Erection.
