It is possible to increase the size of the glans penis (penis head).
Androfill uses a specific filler for this area which is finer and less firm than the filler used along the shaft of the penis.
Typically 2-6 ml of filler is required to increase the size of the penis head, which may require 2 or 3 visits to the clinic.
For Premature Ejaculation
Generally, in dosages of more than 6 ml, Hyaluronic acid filler to the glans can reduce the sensitivity of the penis, for the duration of the life of the filler.
This is, therefore, a potential treatment for premature ejaculation in larger dosages (typically 6 ml+).
* Individual results will vary from person to person.
The price for Hyaluronic acid filler to the glans penis is £350 per ml.
Patients seeking augmentation of the penis head only (to increase the size of the penis but not change the sensitivity) must be aware that injections of hyaluronic acid have the potential to reduce the sensitivity of the penis for the lifetime of the filler.
If a reduction in sensitivity occurs, in most cases this can be reversed by dissolving the filler from the head of the penis using Hyaluronidaise enzyme.
In patients with a foreskin (uncircumcised), augmentation of the glans (increasing the size of the head of the penis) may make it more difficult to retract the foreskin of the penis back over the enlarged head, and there is a risk of Phimosis (difficulty in retracting the foreskin of the penis, for example when cleaning, which can lower the cleanliness of the area and potentially increase the chance of an infection).
