There was one Clinic in the Bay Area that for the life of me I can't remember the name of the physician, but it was a woman who did aesthetic medicine, and she included Girth enhancement as a part of her services.
If you don't mind traveling, Dr. Tsay is a very talented practitioner in Orange County and uses HA. You could literally fly in, get your procedure done, and fly back same day in theory (allowing you to manage most of your post-op protocol at home).

If it doesn’t look promising, I’ll probably head down to LA.
Yea I think she's the one I was trying to remember. Honestly not familiar with her cosmetic prowess but it doesn't hurt to get a consultation if she's local.
If she makes a good impression and seems professional, please ask her if she's heard of PhalloBoards and considered any associations/sponsorships. Of course this is predicated on the quality of her work, ethics, and expertise, but it wouldn't hurt to run it by them if you don't mind.
We do have a new Bay Area / American Northwest region Sponsor in
Dr. Victor Liu . He's a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon and offers everything from non-surgical (like fillers), surgical (dermal matrices and lengthening), as well as scrotal enhancement!
Not sure how his prices compare but he certainly becomes an option to consider. The Bay Area does get a reputation for a being pricey in general, but if you happen to reside in the Northwest, a local or regional option would still be preferable for all the obvious reasons.
I'm also excited to have him on board because I have too few vetted options for scrotal enhancement, and he's very much qualified in this regard.
I added him largely due to his Plastic Surgery background, specifically lengthening and scrotal work which is hardly advertised here. Yes, he has admittedly offered silicone as one of many filler options, probably due to the fact that he uses it in other areas in both men & women.
He insists that the use of silicone filler (if medical grade) can work as good as any other, and he believes most complications stem from poor product quality and/or poor injection technique. I strongly disagreed with this assertion based on what I've seen & read over the years, and even if he was right somehow/someway, I couldn't condone silicone Phalloplasty in good faith. So I considered if a compromise was achievable. After cordial dialog and some negotiation, I determined he could Sponsor here but that he would not advertise silicone on the PhalloBoards.
I was willing to make this exception for three reasons: (1) firstly, what I mentioned in my first sentence about the variety of Male Enhancement services he provides which isn't the case for many of the other Sponsors (who often do Girth enhancement alone). Being a Plastic Surgeon permits him to perform a wider range of procedures for my readership and I believed this benefit outweighed the fact that he "offered silicone as one of many options for Girth." He provides virtually every cosmetic penile & scrotal enhancement under the sun.
(2) given that he performs a wide array of men & women procedures, it isn't unusual for him to have silicone filler around, especially since medical-grade silicone (e.g. like Silikon1000) is FDA approved. This is unlike, say Dr. Loria, who was a Hair Restoration Specialist who jumped into Phalloplasty, claimed his silicone concoction had PMMA in it (a falsehood), and wouldn't be qualified to resolve complications surgically if they should arise. In other words, Dr. Liu stocking and employing silicone in his practice isn't an offense in it of itself, and many Clinics use silicone in a multitude of medical applications -- my exception happens to be the penis.
And (3) He offers Hyaluronic Acid (HA) and PMMA (Bellafill) as options, and the only ones he can advertise here. To be quite frank, and this is not an affront to Dr. Liu, but I would insist on HA or PMMA (or Fat even) if that's what you're intent on getting.
I've actively black-listed and/or turned down other Clinics in the past. Please understand the decision to approve a practitioner who offers silicone Phalloplasty was not an easy decision, especially given my stance on the subject matter. In the end, I felt that the compromise we made was fair, and that it ultimately served my end-goal: expanding competitive options and procedure types to my readership. Healthy competition breeds innovation, better value, and regional accessibility.
