Total newbie/first timer, but will weigh in on surgical augmentation:: Just a word of thanks and appreciation to all concerned for this forum where guys may freely exchange info/communicate ideas on all things penile, so that we may become empowered toward a greater/free/positive expression of one of man’s innate needs. Would that all men could enjoy such freedom. Joezzee, I too, am in the process of seeking/acquiring information re: girth enhancement w/Alloderm. I will share w/you that info which I have found. Historical background: Have had an IPP since ‘89 due to low back injury, therefore, squeamish about attempting PE or lengthening surgery. I’m modestly endowed (6 x 5 1/4), but the big reason I get out of bed every day is to celebrate/enjoy that great gift of sexual expression. Underwent, what now seems to be a somewhat antiquated procedure, fat transfer, in the early nineties. Dick was so big I couldn’t fuck anything for three months. Perhaps that period of rest/non-use contributed to my experiencing none of the lumps/bumps/deformities, etc. That so many fellows experienced. During that time, I was able to achieve the most exquisitely sensitive O’s, simply by gently stroking the frenulum . Alas, the nature of fat is to resorb. To my current quest for Alloderm: Would appreciate hearing from the entire forum on their positive and negative experiences w/Alloderm. (Also anyone who may have an IPP) The Thickone seems to be extremely satisfied. I would like to hear of the final results for 8Ball. At this point I have come to the conclusion that, by reputation, there are three physicians who have achieved an elite status among phalloplastic surgeons: 1) Dr. Whitehead, NYC, 2) Dr. Rosenthal, CA, & 3) Dr. Reed, FL. In conversation w/the offices of Dr. Whitehead, I was told that he is no longer practicing due to illness and that his patients/prospective patients are being referred to Dr. Rosenthal. Dr. Reed requires a $200 fee for a telephone consultation. This week, I had a very productive/enlightening telephone consultation, gratis, w/Dr. Rosenthal w/ whom I was very impressed. He has had nine years of experience w/Alloderm. One of the negatives for me is that he requires a circumcision to enhance post-op hygiene and to add to the stability of the graft. I still have some skin, only 1/3 cut, so must ponder on this one. Will appreciate hearing/learning more from your observations/experiences so that I may make a more fully informed decision. For Baldie: I’ve had successful HT> Just as w/the dick, it’s very important to select a great hair transplant surgeon. If anyone is interested, PM me. Thanks.
