I am just wondering if anyone has researched what Doctors, if any, would be willing to remove pmma from a penis if in fact something goes wrong and it was necessary? I assume that the penis would have to be de-gloved for the pmma to be removed.

The reason I ask is that some of our members seem to be having difficulty finding a surgeon to reconstruct or correct their penises after other procedures that have gone wrong. Has anyone asked Dr.C if he himself is willing to remove the pmma if complications occur or if not who does he recommend? I know that everyone wants to only think of the positive as do I, but we better have a back up plan if this goes badly say 10 years down the road.

Finding a Dr wont be a problem. But even the best surgeons could very well run into trouble removing this stuff. It\'s injected into the Dartos fascia, so if it all had to be removed there is every chance of terrible scarring, loss of fascia, nerve damage or complete loss of shaft skin. If it were easy to remove then there would be no problem having this. So many of the guys claiming to be \"researching\" this procedure are just kidding themselves. If they were doing serious research then they\'d I\'m sure the majority would realize that they aren\'t great candidates at the present time. It\'s inevitable that some guys will have to have PMMA removed eventually. Before this procedure becomes mainstream we need to get a better idea of what percentage will suffer from serious complications and this data wont be available to us for a few years yet.

I find the casual attitude so many guys with very good sized penis\'s have towards this procedure shocking. I\'m pretty confident that this procedure is and will be an absolute Godsend to many guys and my research makes me think we\'ll only see a minimal complication rate, way better than any of the previous PE procedures. But we have the keep in mind the penis is a dynamic organ and fillers have traditionally not done well in those (ie the lips). Only time will tell how safe this really is and anyone who isn\'t having real size based issues, or trying to make right a previous procedure (ie Elist victims etc), should, in my opinion, be more patient and wait a few years.

Well said. I may be wrong, but I feel like the majority (not all) of members after the 3rd or 4th Wave of PMMA Pioneers are more often-than-not casual in their research and rely more heavily on pure Before & After content than raw data. Again, I could be wrong and it is a bit presumptuous.

You probably wont have trouble finding a doctor to remove it, but as Hoddle pointed out, it may be as equally disastrous removing it as it would be for the reason that got you to remove it in the first place. In other words, if you don\'t pass the \"risk-to-benefit\" test, pass on Phalloplasty altogether. We\'re very fortunate that there are members among us who have taken the time to update their progress reports every day/week/month/year so that we can ascertain the true complication rates over the next 5+ years. This is why those who lurk on these forums who have gotten PMMA but do not post should re-consider. This site may be the only thing outside a Bioplasty office that is tracking the efficacy of PMMA in the penis in both the short & long term.

I value every bit of info on this site and have spent countless hours researching here and other places since I became a member. I know that compared to many members here that is very little, but I am doing my best. This IS the best source of Phalloplasty information in the world as far as the English speaking language is concerned. Before I discovered this site the only info that I could find seemed to be laced with propaganda and lies that led me to believe that the risks in Phalloplasty were extremely low. I have, because of this site, completely changed my PE path. I have accessed the risks and still believe that this pmma procedure is right for me, but if it weren\'t for you guys I would just be another unfortunate person headed down the PE path with a blindfold on. I greatly appreciate all of the information that you guys have been gracious enough to share with newbies such as myself. I am also sorry if my lack of knowledge is aggravating or somewhat insulting to the veterans, but I can say that I will do my absolute best to keep everyone informed on my personal experience, I will be here for anyone who needs a friend, and over time I will grow to a level of knowledge that will be useful to others on this forum. Thats the best I can do. Thank you guys again for being here and caring!!!
