By keeping the penile flaccid length to its maximum, which the gauze wrap assists with, the filler will stimulate collagen production, and this collagen will distribute more evenly throughout the penile shaft. Even though there is a gauze wrap on the penile shaft to help prevent this flaccid pulling, the gauze wrap is not always successful and the flaccid pull might be too strong and causes two things to happen: The first is the strong flaccid pulling force can actually push some of the filler out of the penile shaft and into the pubic and scrotal areas.
This is not dangerous, but the idea is to keep the filler in the penile shaft so the enlargement can be maximized. Secondly, when the flaccid pullback is strong it may cause an uneven distribution of filler material and subsequent collagen formation. It may cause the foreskin area to bulge more. If there is more foreskin leftover from the circumcision, then a bulging may potentially develop, which ultimately results in the ‘turtling’ effect.
Does this affect intercourse and function? No, absolutely not. It is all cosmetic and does not have a functional impact. It is only a temporary issue if the head of the penis, or glans, is submerged under the bulging skin of the penile shaft during the flaccid state. When the penis becomes erect, the glans comes out and will look better and proportioned. The issue is a cosmetic problem, not a functional problem.
Is it possible to correct this flaccid shortening issue (the high retraction of the shaft)? Yes. Loria Medical is working on a penile sleeve lengthening device designed to be inserted directly under the skin and concealed by your new collagen. The Flaccid Insert or penile sleeve device prosthesis is a thin medical-grade soft silicone rubber sleeve that is intended to maintain the penile shaft stretched out, gently, constantly, and consistently extending the penis forward subsequently elongating the tissues over time.
This soft silicone implant prosthesis (which is the same material used in the latest designs of breast implants) once in place will prevent the penis from retracting, acting as an internal ‘splint’. This implant could permanently remain under the penile shaft skin and could be incorporated within the new collagen production. This penile sleeve device is highly recommended and will improve and optimize results for those who are looking for additional lengthen or to help prevent the high retraction (‘turtling’) of the glans.
GLANS (OR HEAD OF THE PENIS)
The glans, or head of the penis, can be modestly enlarged. The reason for modest gains, fair in comparison to the gains obtained with the shaft and scrotal enhancement, is due to the actual anatomy of the glans itself. That will not allow a lot of filler to be placed, and that is the reason why it could take several treatments to enlarge the glans to a significant size. Who is the best candidate? This varies greatly between each person, as all patients have a particular anatomy, and not until the first glans treatment is performed will we know how much gains around the glans a patient can get.
When the procedure is being done, Your Loria Medical Physician will begin injecting the filler material and will evaluate how much filler the glans will allow in. The amount of filler formula to be injected will be proportional to the amount of space available in the glans, and whatever space is available will be filled. There is nothing that can be done to assist in getting more filler to ‘fit’ in the glans. The natural available space is the limiting factor.
Keep in mind that the glans can be treated several times, which gives us the opportunity to build it up over time. There are no particular set of conditions that could be altered in favor of greater results regarding this procedure. Loria Medical always encourage its patients to have at least one glans enhancement done. If the response to the glans treatment is poor, further treatments might not be recommended.

Scrotal enhancement treatments are typically performed for those who desire a larger/fuller scrotal appearance or have a scrotum that constantly pulls/contracts which makes the patient feel very uncomfortable or may even be painful. The filler formula will induce collagen formation between the muscular fibers producing such contraction, preventing this from happening to an uncomfortable degree. Another consideration for scrotal treatment is on the other side of the spectrum, for one who has a very loose scrotal sac which could also be uncomfortable. By adding the filler formula material, the scrotal sac will ‘tighten up’ due to the extra girth of the skin and become firmer.
By adding a permanent filler to the scrotal skin, it will cause the whole scrotal area to enlarge, help prevent scrotal contraction, and help ‘tighten up’ on the loose appearing scrotal sac.
There are no particular conditions that will increase the chance for better results. Scrotums vary greatly in size, shape, and in skin quality.
