Can you please tell me who those patients are? My concerns are that my penis is misshapen, I haven\'t gotten anything close to an Erection, seem to have lost sensitivity in the shaft, amongst other things. Not to mention reading stories of how silicone implants can cause cancer.
Are any of Dr. Loria\'s patients on this site happy with the procedure?
This is me Day 5 after the procedure. Do you see what I\'m concerned about?
Do you have any \"before\" pictures to compare against? Like Hoddle said, there are a few guys on here who went to Loria. I can\'t tell you off the top of my head who they are, but you can do a search and find some stuff on here regarding him. At 5 days out, you still have a good bit of swelling that should come down over time.
OK, so this is why I asked about before pictures. I wanted to see the shape of your penis beforehand. As you can see, the base of your penis before is more narrow and the area just behind your glans is thicker. It looks like after wards, you have maintained a similar shape. But keep in mind that you still have swelling. This will come down along with the bruising over time. It is very common for the area above the Circumcision scar to retain swelling longer than the rest of the penis. I know it is hard to be patient, but that is all you can do right now.

I just made a new post about it with more pictures if you\'re interested in that.
It very well could be where the silicone has collected. Silicone stays viscous longer than PMMA. This is why Loria instructs his patients to keep the penis wrapped, especially at the base, as to keep the product from migrating. Wrapping, along with the help of gravity, could have forced the product towards the glans. However, the skin is thinner here and more likely to show the effects of swelling. It could be a matter where both of these are present.
At this point, if you cannot move the product my manual manipulation, all you can do is wait and see. However, at only 5 days after receiving silicone, you should still be able to move it somewhat.
I know you are new to the PB but pictures of procedures and outcomes belong in the Patient Support & Progress Category. General inquiries about different products, doctors, techniques, etc. go in the General category.
It\'s hard to know whether I can move it when it\'s in bandages. I followed his procedure except for changing the bandage twice so it was unwrapped for a few minutes. I don\'t think it would look substantially different if not unwrapped for a few minutes. When the procedure was done, there was a huge bubble at the top. Now, it\'s just slightly more enlarged. He suggests finger massaging throughout the 21 day healing period.
I will either have a nice Dick or an ugly Dick and I have yet to see if it even gets hard.
