I have been lurking around the old site as well as this one. I just finished my first round of PMMA yesterday.
My story is that I\'m a big African-American who retracts a lot. Erect I was 7\"x5.25\" but would severely retract when Flaccid. After being fully relaxed and one good tug I was 4x4 Flaccid. But that length wouldn\'t last long and if I was walking around would be around 2\" in Flaccid length.
I decided to get the procedure because with my size I felt small and the fact that I was so small Flaccid. I was sick of trying to convince women that my penis would grow to a good size Erect. I wanted to simply walk around knowing that if women were checking me out there would be little question of my size.
I\'ve had a few negative life experiences because of my Flaccid size. Just one example is: I was urinating in the bathroom at a house party and a girl busted in on me thinking the bathroom was vacant. She said, \"Oh...(the word \"poor\" was implied by her tone of voice) Rodion\" (not my real name of course) and started to laugh then proceeded to tell the entire party of my shame.
So after years of off and on research I decided on Dr. C. Let me tell you that Dr. C and his staff, RN Wade especially, are the epitome of caring professionals. They examined my penis over and over during the procedure to attain the most aesthetic and best results. I was nervous but after 10 minutes or so into the procedure we were joking around and I was inquiring about life in Tijuana.
There are a few reasons for my posting here:
1) To let our fellow brothers know they\'re not alone.
2) To preempt future patients of Dr. C\'s on one thing that simply caught me off guard.
When injecting the needle Dr.C uses one sharp needle to break the skin then a dull needle to place the PMMA. Since it is a dull needle Dr. C must apply some pressure in order to get the needle down into the penis. When he does this you will hear and feel (it is not painful as you are under anesthesia) a \"Pop\" as he breaks through a layer of skin to get down into the penis. This surprised me I guess but it is normal. I simply would have wanted to know this before hand so it did not take me so off-guard.
I believe I have gained some Flaccid length already as it hangs so nicely and is almost at full Flaccid stretch length normally. Erect length has not changed. My Flaccid Girth went from 4\" to 5.25\" 17 hrs post op but I am very swollen. My Erect Girth went from 5.25\" to 6.25\" 17hrs post op.
If there are any questions I am happy to answer them as I know I have left much out. Just post them under this thread and I\'ll respond when I can.
I admit I did not do due diligence taking pictures but I do have one before and after. The after is about 3 hours post op.
great results, are you planning on going back for a second session? and do you know how many cc\'s Dr. c placed? I ask because it seems like most guys are reporting different amounts being placed. and according to the fact sheet I was sent they tend to place between 10-15 cc per treament.
I had 20cc in my 1st session and will definitely be going back as it has shrunk from the swelling going down. It is only day 6 but seeing how big it was post-op I can\'t help but long for that size again.
I have some skin rolling over the glans due to retraction and it seems most of the PMMA has found its way right behind the circ scar. I\'ll send pics prob tomorrow. I am very happy with the results so far tho.
thanks for the encouraging words. It seems to be deflating before my eyes. I\'ll try and be patient and hope for the best but am already planning 2nd procedure. It does seems to hang a lot better today with no Turtling. Rubbing arginine gel on it last night before bed so that may be the reason.
Happy Healing brother!
I\'d take JAM\'s advice and avoid measuring it until at least 6 weeks. I know it may be hard to resist... but the change in swelling and collagen formation will create inconsistent results. If you rely on measurements today, you may give yourself false hope, because it may not be the same next week.
