Every indication I'm aware of indicates that it is the extraordinarily deformation-resistant nature of the tunica-albuginea which has always confounded attempts to gradually increase penile length and Girth by means such as vacuum pumping, Hanging, distraction frames, and the P-shot. A few years ago a physician, plastic surgeon Dr. Brian Wong of the University Of California Irvine, and a Ph.D. chemist Dr. Michael Hill of LA-based Occidental College discovered a technique that can make collagenous tissue extremely malleable by passing a mild electric current through it. The technique, known as EMR ( Electromechanical Reshaping ), causes any collagenous tissue in the treatment area to become highly plastic for as long as the current is maintained, due to a chemical change produced in the collagen molecules. During that time the affected tissues can be reshaped and even distracted and distended to a remarkable degree. However, within minutes of the current being discontinued the tissue once again regains its normal rigidity, while retaining its newly acquired shape and dimensions.
I've read that Dr. Wong and Dr. Hill are searching extensively for any and all possible applications for their new discovery. For medical conditions that could benefit from treatments based on their new EMR procedure. For the past two years or so, I've been reaching out to urologists, plastic surgeons, and even a few relevant academic researchers, trying to get them to look at the possibility of developing or at least encouraging the development of EMR as a means to make the tunica-albuginea more plastic. As I said, Electromechanical-reshaping causes collagen-based tissues to become extremely malleable for as long as the mild current applied to the tissue is maintained, due to a change produced in the atomic bonds of the collagen molecules. Minutes after the current is ceased however, the tissue once again regains its former rigidity but, retains any alterations made to its shape and dimensions during the treatment period. The tunica albuginea is composed almost entirely of collagen. I realize that, as a layperson, I might be missing something but it seems remarkably likely to me that properly applied EMR could be used to increase tunical malleability to the end of gradually increasing penile length and Girth when combined with an appropriate stressor. EMR could also be an absolutely GAME CHANGING treatment for men suffering from Peyronie's disease as long as the plaques have not yet become calcified, or after the calcified portions have been excised.
Due to my own unfortunate personal history I had, before the discovery of EMR, also put some effort into trying to get physicians to look at other potential modalities to soften the tunica-albuginea, such as recombinant relaxin. And, even since EMR's discovery, I've still kept my eye out for other potential means to this end. The most promising being a very early stage animal study, regarding combining anti-lysyl-oxidase and vacuum pumping.
I'm eager to join your website, even just to get these ideas in front of your members. But, I'm most hopeful that your website will give me access to interested physicians associated with it who might be interested in contacting Dr. Wong and Dr. Hill in an effort to encourage the development of EMR to this end. Again, from what I've read, Dr. Hill and Dr. Wong are searching far and wide for every possible use of this new technology. So, if any members and/or staff here have any kind of "in" with any member(s) of the Phalloplasty-inclined medical community, please pass this idea along to them and ask them to please reach out to Dr. Wong and Dr. Hill.
It sounds very promising and also years ahead in terms of going mainstream. I can imagine how tricky it will be to access the tunica albuginea safe and change the structure by applying pressure to the blood cells at the same time. Maybe it can be used for smoothing out bad shaped collagen after PMMA or Ellanse.
