Hello all I\'m a newb. I\'ve been lurking for a while. Wow. I\'m am so glad I found this sight. I\'m definitely looking forward to starting my journey. I\'m looking for quality drs in California. I\'m really eager to see some more long term results for PMMA although dr c and PMMA seem to be the most popular route in my area. I\'m 33 with 2 kids and in the middle of losing my fiance blah blah blah. With that being said. I think I\'d like to start this journey with a lig cut( I turtle constantly) and some FFT or graft. I\'m on the other side of the country and would like to know of some good docs with skills of Guinta and Solomon.... thank you.
Don\'t do the lig cut yet!
I did it in 2000 by Rodney Barron in LA and he did the VY incision which left me scarred and with paresthesia. I lost feeling along the top of the shaft, which started me on my way to ED. The scar is very obvious.
I\'ve studied and researched the PMMA way and I decided to do it next year, if not for function, at least for show. I would recommend stretching for length and PMMA for Girth and Flaccid length if you stretch it for a couple of weeks post op like I\'m hoping to do, since I turtle to 1.5\" sometimes.
Don\'t do a dermal fat graft or alloderm or Belladerm graft as it requires that you be degloved. In addition, there are too many risks associated with them. The less invasive, the better, but of course, there are risks no matter what you decide. Do your research and know why PMMA is better for you than FFT. Advice does you no good unless you understand it. Happy reading, and good luck on your travels.
You don\'t need to be degloved for a graft. But it does require surgery. I have some issues that can probably only be corrected by a small graft and have been close to getting the surgery for about 18 months, but change my mind frequently.
I would suggest staying away from FFT. The reasoning is that the fat will eventually reabsorb and there is no way to tell just how this will happen. It can be uneven or lumpy.
Even if you do not want to do PMMA, I would steer you from FFT.
