I had a micro penis & would now be nearly 2\"- I was told by Dr moore that I had a streched length of 11cm post surgery- I had retracted to 5.5cm at my 3 month post op check up

Width wise I\'m 3.5\"- having probably been less than a 2\" pre surgery. would there be any thing that could make me wider?- PMMA??- Is it safe?


What\'s your take on Kenalog? does it just make you penis fall out from in side you?- You do it yourself right?... it\'d hurt?

I saw both Dr caminar & Dr bartouti- they both wern\'t sure weather the ligament was cut.


11 cm stretched length post surgery is meaningless, as it will be measured when you are lying down and in the opposite direction to the pubic bone, where the ligs have just been cut. Had it been measured at a 45 degree angle, it would have been less, as the lig cut wouldn\'t have made any difference.

Retraction usually happens very early on in the process. Did you notice you were retracted in the days after surgery, or did it happen more slowly in the months following. It could well be that the graft contracted, rather than the ligs reattached.

I wouldn\'t recommend any further surgery for at least a year. Kenalog is a steroid that can soften scar tissue.

Are you still wearing a stretching device?

Has anyone actually examined you following your initial surgery? You really need to consult with a plastic surgeon in Oz before even considering flying all the way to Mexico. You may have some scar tissue that might soften or even respond to Kenalog. I can\'t see how you can arrange a surgery without them examining you.

To give you the best advice we really need to know a bit more about your previous surgery. What were you Flaccid and erect length and Girth before and after surgery? Did you not gain much from the first graft? I think stacking grafts is a terrible idea and have only heard of it done once before (the infamous Chad Hedman) and the result was horrendous. I\'d be surprised if Dr Camacho has ever done that before and if he has it can only be on one or two patients.

Sorry to keep ghosting you,

Can you do secondary dermal fat grafting?? what\'s the success rate of that?

Where would you take a graft?- from the butt?- My first was on my tummy & the area is still settling down after nearly 8 months.

What was that about the grafts turning fibrotic??

What about the head- how do p/e doctors expand that... do they lift it off & fan it out?? They surely can only do so much?

cheers man.

I have spoken with Dan & he seems ok- I\'ve seen his work on tv/youtube- he was reluctant at first to talk (because he says & I understand he gets a lot of tyre kickers) But I think he is a salesperson first & foremost. But in saying that - having him there on the other side of the world I would imagine is a good thing- to drive you Etc.

What do you think of doing another dfg? or for that matter, Dan\'s approach to doing lengthening under traction? It sounds plausable to me- also, dan wants to do lengthening first & wait 6 months to do wideing? Max your size doesn\'t want to do me unless i get circumsied.

Your advise has been very prudent & helpful! Thanks.- What have you had done in terms of work? Your experience??


If you\'re traveling from the other side of the planet, I can see why it would be useful to have someone to provide transportation, offer additional services like assisting in post-op protocol, and hell maybe even delivering food to your hotel. You\'ll just have to ask yourself if you can do that yourself, or if the convenience is worth the extra cost.

As for the actual procedure, I\'d highly recommend relying on multiple resources (not just one specific resource, like Dan) on deciding which procedure you wish to undergo. He is definitely experienced, but as you said yourself, he\'s also a salesman. I\'m sure he means well, but you have to be the informed decision maker here and go with what you feel is the best route for you.

As for his suggestion of having lengthening done under traction, quite frankly I think it\'s an interesting idea. Even though Dan\'s previous physician-affiliations have been spotty at best, he\'s at least seen many of Phalloplasty\'s errors to have learned what may work more effectively. There is no telling if \"lengthening while under traction,\" will be anymore effective than without, but lengthening is still so experimental that it wouldn\'t hurt giving it a shot if you are absolutely convinced you wish to do this.

I think the idea of Belladerm onto a graft is a poor one. The chances of infection must be considerably higher and long term blood supply would surely be an issue with 2 different types of graft material. We are now seeing that grafts tend to turn fibrotic after about a decade. I\'d imagine it could be even sooner with 2 types of graft material layered on top of each other.

I know very little about Camacho-Melo. I know he can have only been doing Belladerm grafts for a very short period of time and until recently was only doing FFT and Dermal Grafts. So he can have no idea what his longer term results are with Belladerm. I\'d imagine he\'s never done a Belladerm onto dermal before. I can see many potential problems.

Apparently Dan blames the Dr\'s he previously worked with for letting him down in the past. He\'s worked with Rhienschild, Krakovsky, Knight, Echenberg (sp?) and Wineland. He moves from Dr to Dr until there reputation is tarnished and he has to find someone else to work with. There is no one left in California, so he\'s had to move south of the boarder.

I find it difficult to believe that Camacho was the one who wanted to start doing Dermal Grafts and Belladerm. So it looks to me as if Dan has more influence over these Dr\'s than is made out and thus he needs to start taking responsibility for what has happened in the past.

I know of three PE surgeons in Australia. Two of them perform FFT and one Dermal Grafts. The guy who does Dermal Grafts is called Colin Moore, is apparently extraordinarily expensive and his work seems to have a poor reputation. The guys who do FTT are called Dr Caminer and Dr Barnouti.
