What is the Priapus Shot®?
The Priapus Shot® (P-Shot®) is a platelet-rich plasma (PRP) treatment to alleviate symptoms of male sexual dysfunction such as:
- Small penis size/girth
- Erectile dysfunction
- Diminished sexual drive
- Lack of sensation
How is the P-Shot performed?
First, the penis is numbed with lidocaine cream. A small amount of blood is then drawn from the arm, similar to when a blood test is performed. The blood is transferred to a centrifuge, where platelets are transferred into another tube, and a calcium chloride solution tricks the platelets into thinking that the body has been injured. The platelets then release growth factors into the liquid, and the liquid is transferred into a syringe and injected into the penis using a tiny needle. A total of six injections are made along the penis in a procedure that takes less than half an hour and that is performed in a private in-office environment.
What are the benefits of PRP?
The P-Shot® uses PRP to stimulate the growth of new cells in the penis. The platelets naturally generate tissue and increase sensitivity to stimulation. Since your own cells are being used, not a foreign material, there should be no side effects. Your body’s natural reaction to the treated cells is to repair the tissues. The PRP stimulates new blood flow with new blood vessels.
Most men see improvements immediately. It is common to see desired results within 6-8 weeks after the treatment. Possible results and benefits of the P-Shot® include:
- 1-inch increase in girth and length
- Straightening of the penis
- Increased circulation and function
- Increased sensation and pleasure
- Makes other therapies work better (Viagra or Cialis)
Are there any risks or side effects?
Before the procedure, you will need to stop the use of NSAIDs such as Aspirin and Aleve.
Because we are using your own cells, there are virtually no risks, side effects, or allergic reactions. After the procedure, you may experience slight bruising. You will need to avoid certain drugs and supplements such as NSAIDs, garlic, and vitamin E. A full list of instructions will be provided to you during your consultation.
Do I need to bring anything to my appointment?
When scheduling your appointment, please make sure you have purchased your own pump. Using the pump immediately after your treatment and up to 2 weeks after your P-Shot® is crucial in stimulating blood flow and circulation, providing you with optimal results. We do not stock pumps in our clinic; please purchase your pump here. Additional instructions on pumps will be provided to you during your consultation.
