Desire for penile girth enhancement and the effects of the self-injection of hyaluronic Acid gel

J Cutan Aesthet Surg. 2012 Jul;5(3):198-200. doi: 10.4103/0974-2077.101382.


Penile girth enhancement is a controversial subject but demands for enhancement are increasing steadily. Although various fillers have been widely used for soft tissue augmentation, there is no reliable material for this particular situation. Here we report a case of an acute hypersensitivity reaction in a man after his first self-injection of a filler material, which, he claimed, was hyaluronic acid gel for penile girth enhancement and glans penis augmentation.

Keywords: Aesthetic surgery; complication; penis augmentation.
