I had the glans enhancement procedure with Dr. R a few years ago. I didn\'t like it at all. My glans ended up all bumpy and looked like a piece of cauliflower. The only good part about it was the filler had completely disappeared in 4 months. Yes, $2,500 for 4 months. He used Captique at the time which I believe is off the market now, but is similar to Restylane.
Also note that they give you IV sedation for the procedure because they can\'t inject lidocaine into the glans and then expect to know where to place the filler - so you can\'t drive yourself home.
Some surgeons will place allograft material just under the coronal ridge of the glans penis. I highly advise against this. At present, only injection with hyaluronic acid shows promise (with questionable aesthetics mind you) and as you mentioned in your post, is temporary.
@miracle7 - have you ever heard of anyone having glans enlargement with Rosenthal? His website says they do it, and they have on picture up there. Wondering if he gets more reliable results than what we\'ve heard about elsewhere. (I know that this is only temporary no matter what)
I highly recommend Dr. Gary Alter for Ligamentolysis. Dr. Brian Rosenthal and Dr. Harold Reed are two other surgeons I\'d recommend without reservation. They are both urologists and have adequate experience and knowledge.
Can\'t speak to who is the best bc I haven\'t had any surgery. But from having looked at several websites, I would say that Dr. Gary Alter seems like the most honest/straight-forward. He is very matter of fact about the limitations, and I believe is certified as both a urologist and a plastic surgeon. He quoted me $5000, which is expensive. But if I ever went through with it, it\'d probably be with him.
Southie is correct and obviously experienced the \"questionable aesthetics\" I spoke of. Dermal fillers are not the best route to augment the glans penis but at present, are the best option available. Hyaluronic acid lasts longer than 4 months (up to 18) but with similar unsightly results.
