Erectile dysfunction (ED), is no laughing matter. An estimated 18 million men in the US experience some form of ED. Symptoms can be mild decrease in performance to complete inability to achieve an erection. There are many causes and now there are many options for treating ED.
If you have ED, the first thing you should do is to visit your doctor to make sure it is not a symptom of a more life threatening medical condition such as cardiovascular disease or uncontrolled diabetes. Checking your hormone levels will also be helpful.
Treatments vary from psychological to medications to surgery. Drugs such as Viagra, Cialis, and Levitra are the most commonly prescribed treatments. However, these drugs can have side effects and may not be an option for some people who are on heart medications. Testosterone replacement is growing in popularity, but supplementing your testosterone can suppress the production of your own natural testosterone if you are not actually suffering from low T. Penile implant surgery is the last option for people who do not respond to any treatment.
Priapus Shot® also known as a P-Shot®, is a new method of treating ED that your doctor may not have considered. The P-Shot is a simple procedure but it can only be administered by a doctor or nurse with specialized training in this technique. This procedure takes advantage of the regenerative potential found in your own body.
Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) is being used in all fields of medicine. Athletes get PRP injections to quickly recover from acute and chronic sports injuries. Plastic surgeons are using it to regenerate collagen and skin in the face and to grow hair. Wound care doctors are using it to heal chronic wounds. The potential benefits are limitless.
It turns out that the platelets that are circulating in your blood are actually storehouses of growth factors that are released in response to any injury. When the platelets become activated, the released growth factors signal stem cells to come to the area and start healing the damaged tissue and it initiates the creation of new blood supplies to the area.
The P-Shot involves taking a sample of blood from your arm, extracting the platelets, activating them to release the growth factors and injecting the potent solution into strategic areas of the penis.
Within 3-6 weeks after a P-Shot injection, men are experiencing increased sensation, increased ability to have and sustain an erection and even a modest increase in size of their organ.
At Omni Aesthetics, the P-Shot is performed by Dr. H. William Song or his registered nurse. Dr. Song trained personally with the inventor of the Priapus Shot Dr. Charles Runels. Dr. Song is also an official trainer for other physicians who want to learn how to perform this procedure. Dr. Song works very closely with Dr. Runels to ensure that physicians and nurses performing this treatment are properly trained and receive ongoing support for advancements in the technique.
Safety Although the P-Shot is very safe, the penis contains many vial structures that could be injured if the procedure is performed by untrained practitioners. Please make sure that your doctor is an official provider by checking the director of P-Shot providers: http://priapusshot.com/members/directorywww.priapusshot.com/members/directory/
Beyond the P-Shot
For patients looking for more significant results, Dr. Song also offers Stem Cell Treatments. Instead of using platelets to attract stem cells, the actual stem cells can be extracted from your fat and injected like the P-Shot. This technique is a little more involved because the stem cells will need to be harvested by doing a mini liposuction, but the results are even more impressive.
If you are interested in increasing the size as well as the function, a Collagen Implant Therapy (CIT) can be performed at the same time as your P-Shot or Stem Cell treatment. A microscopic implant material called PMMA and collagen are injected along the shaft of the penis to increase the girth. When we combine this with PRP, the PMMA acts as a scaffold for your own collagen to form around it. The increase in girth is due to formation of your own collagen and skin and will last for 5 years or more. The only FDA approved PMMA product for injection into soft tissue is Bellafill®. Bellafill is approved for injecting into the face so injecting into the penis would be an off label use of this product. Using the right PMMA product is crucial to obtain the best results. Some people travel to clinics in Mexico because cheaper PMMA products are available, but this is asking for trouble. The size of the particles, if too small or too large, can cause nodules. If the particles are suspended in water instead of collagen the particles can clump and cause deformities. Your own fat can also be used for this procedure, but most patients prefer the PMMA because they find the fat to be too soft.
The cost of the procedures are as follows: P-Shot $1800 P-Shot additional treatment within 6 months $1200 P-Shot with Autologus Adipose Derived Stem Cells $3800 P-Shot with Collagen Implant Therapy: 5 syringes of Bellafill with PRP $5400 Second round of P-Shot with CIT 5 syringes of Bellafill with PRP: $4800 Touch up P-Shot with CIT 1 syringe of Bellafill and PRP $1800
ALMI Fat transfer with SVF growth factors:
For massive volumization, your own fat and adipose derived growth factors call Stromal Vascular Fraction (SVF) is used to enhance the girth and function of the penis with results that lasts for many years. $9700
