Are you familiar with the history of Phalloplasty(?), because I can show you what true "horrors" look like. Heck, you yourself said in a separate post: "The aesthetic thing is partly my own fault because I didn\'t massage it hard enough in the first week, I thought I was but clearly not, it was also hard to judge with the swelling which I mistook for smoothness." I don't think it was necessarily your fault, but that all fillers have an element of unpredictability, and short of looking like "Sloth from the Goonies", it comes with the territory.
Here you have a filler that hasn't posed any adverse reactions, nor any life-altering complications; for someone who is admittedly under-average, what I believe is going on is high expectations and disappointing results. If you are accustomed to reading posts on this forum with 2 Inch gains, you're setting yourself up for dissatisfaction when dealing with the volumes of HA you've had injected.
I've decided to change your topic title as I believe it does a disservice to the filler with the best safety profile, and a disservice to readers who may not otherwise know the context of "horrors" in Phalloplasty. Also, for someone admittedly under-average, I'm rather shocked that even a marginal increase in Girth isn't mind-blowing (it was for me); makes me wonder if maybe Phalloplasty isn't the best solution in your situation -- as in I don't think I'd recommend Ellanse in your case.
Good luck either way.
I hear what you're saying about the hyperbole and apologise for the title then, I'm just sharing my experience with it and I've made sure not to call out the clinic or point any fingers in that respect as they are still working with me to get it right. I don't agree with the rest of your post about it being my expectations, I didn't mention my problem being disappointed in the increase in size at any stage but as you have mentioned it there is no real increase in size other than when Flaccid
, when Erect
any supposed size increase just seems like padding with loose skin and a few lumps. It looking bigger when Flaccid
is literally the only benefit I have had from it, the cons have much outweighed any benefit. The cons have very much been life altering for me, a sex life is completely off the cards unless I try to present something that looks and feels bizarre and is so soft and squishy even when Erect
that I can't even get a condom on. Also erections have really got much weaker, I believe or at least hope this is simply due to the fact that it is hard to get a hold of and all the padding has greatly reduced the sensitivity. I know that getting emotional on here is no help to anyone so again I apologise and I understand what you're saying about that it can be reversed so again horror was a poorly worded title (I just thought it had a nice ring to it and didn't consider the implications), although my worry is that I have somehow stretched the skin or tissue, right now I can't even grab hold of the shaft as all I am grabbing is what feels like sponge.
My post isn't even to go off on one against the product itself as many obviously have good results with it (although the more I read of the forum the past few days squishiness seems to be a very common problem with the HA
which makes me wonder if I'm fighting a loosing battle), I feel though that aside from the hyperbole I used I should be able to express my personal experience and concerns with it on here. The previous comment of mine you quoted was from years ago I believe when we had been doing it with the needle, since I started using the cannula I had been going extremely hard with the moulding. My post was to try and understand where I'm going wrong with it (for e.g could I be right in my theory that doing very small amounts at a time is where the problem has come from?), again I'd like to stress that being unhappy with the lack of gains is not my issue, at this stage I will be over the moon with any size increase if I have a normal penis that feels Erect
when it is Erect
as I just want to get on with my life. I think the best description on here for what I'm probably dealing with is the accordion affect which results in the rest of it being squishy, perhaps Circumcision
is something I should consider?
Thanks for your reply anyway.
