Low-grade Liquid Silicone Injections as a Penile Enhancement Procedure: Is Bigger Better?

Urol Ann. 2012 Sep;4(3):181-6. doi: 10.4103/0974-7796.102672.


To report our experience with 5 cases of complications of penile enhancement procedures secondary to liquid silicone injections and our method of management of its debilitating effects. All five patients were treated with excision of penile shaft skin down to buck's fascia followed by resurfacing with split thickness skin grafting. We conclude that penile enhancement procedures with liquid silicone by non-medical personnel could result in devastating consequences. We also demonstrate that a simple method of excision of the entire penile shaft skin and resurfacing with split skin grafting showed improvement in cosmetic as well as functional outcome.
