All,

So I have had two consultations with two different doctors and I am very interested in getting HA fillers to begin with but I am struggling with the costs of these fillers. It seems like pricing is from 6K-8K for about 10ml of filler from different brands that last between about 3 - 5 yrs with reductions of about 60% - 75%. (Not formal statistics, just general observations)

For those of you that have done these, have you felt that the costs are worth it from a self-confidence booster and overall results? I would love to hear your opinions. Just a little hard to stomach to spend the thousands of dollars upfront with a couple of thousands each year for upkeep.

I appreciate any insights.

I won't speak for others but there are a few things that do weigh in favor of the cost-benefit of HA:
(1) It has a strong safety profile. It's used all over in cosmetic medicine with reportedly low complication rates AND happens to be a naturally occurring substance in your own body.
(2) Somewhat reversible. I've read varying degrees to the extent it can be reversed with hyaluronidase, which could be useful for those who need corrections or for those who want to remove it. Fillers that rely on bio-stimulatory effects (Ellanse, PMMA, Radiesse) require more invasive measures to remove.
(3) For some guys, NOT being permanent is attractive. Not all results are equal -- if you aren't happy, you aren't stuck with it forever, nor will you have to worry about any additional measures down the road for removal. Plus, not all experiences are the same -- maybe your partner doesn't like your oversized girth, at least you know in a few years it will return to as it was before. You may think that sounds crazy but I've seen reports of bigger men being turned down quickies (vaginal tearing) and anal (self-explanatory).

In the same breath, obviously top-offs periodically can prove cost-prohibitive for some folks, especially if your body is the type to breakdown fillers quicker. If budget & logistics play a significant role in your long-term plans, then alternative fillers or procedures may make more sense.

A lot of guys have shared that they like the idea of HA being their "first time" filler. This way they can decide whether or not they even like girth enhancement before pursuing any additional appointments. They can also see if HA makes them happy, continuing with it every few years, or if they rather opt for more permanent options instead.

I hope HA guys chime in :)

I am definitely no expert, but in my research I have noticed that Hyaluronic Acid seems to be the filler that most clinics around the world are comfortable to offer and tout as a "safe alternative".

As mentioned, it has a strong safety profile, it is claimed to be reversible (or somewhat reversible?), and I would say a big plus side is that it seems to be pretty much the only filler that clinics all over the world offer, while other fillers might exclusively be offered in say the USA or Korea.

On the negative side is that the result seems far from permanent. Like I said, I am definitely no expert, but I read one can expect the result to last for one year, and definitely not five years. It is also necessary to do "top ups".

I’ve had lots of Juvederm and it definitely lasts much longer than a year. I would imagine more like 3 or 4 years to be honest as I’ve lost very little, having started in March of 2020. I actually wish it would absorb faster so I could go ahead and get PMMA or Ellanse ! Magic wand - I’d go back and do Ellanse but live and learn .

What’s your take on HA? I’m considering it. You said you should have gone straight to Ellanse, is the HA too squishy or other issues? Thanks!

Aren't you able to slowly go to the more permanent PMMA with some HA still left or does it have to be completely gone? I was planning on doing the HA first to see if I like it and then in a couple of years go to the PMMA.....

It’s a bit soft but no partners have complained. I wouldn’t have gotten so much but I had a few lucky crypto trades lol. Now the juvederm in my Dick is probably worth more than the shitcoins that paid for it! Also travel was pretty limited March of 2021 so mexico really wasn’t an option. It was my best option at the time and I kept going with to get the look where I wanted it (although it still doesn’t look how i want it). Getting ready to do an update soon so you can see pics etc .
