Is the PRP-Shot an Effective Treatment for Peyronie’s Disease?
New York, NY – Men suffering from Peyronie’s disease in the past were encouraged to leave the problem alone to see if the issue resolved on its own, or they had to resort to surgery. Now, a simple injection called the PRP-Shot promises to give Peyronie’s sufferers the relief they so desperately crave.
What is Peyronie’s Disease?
Peyronie’s disease is characterized by a hardening of the tissue that comprises the inside of the penis. In most cases, the man will feel a lump or scar tissue forming on the erectile tissue that holds the blood in place during an erection. This lump is generally felt at the point where the penis begins its upward curve.
In some cases, the disease can affect the size and shape of the erect penis and can lead to erectile dysfunction if the muscle and arteries of the penis are affected.
What Causes Peyronie’s Disease?
The causes of Peyronie’s disease aren’t quite clear, but some believe that continual bending or bumping of the erect penis are to blame. What is known is that the disease generally affects men between 45 and 60 years of age, and begins to show symptoms when there is tearing in the lining of erectile tissue. This tearing in turn leads to an inflammatory plaque that doesn’t quite heal as it should. If left to worsen, blood vessels will rupture and blood flow could become blocked, whereby swelling and further inflammation could result.
Getting Help for Peyronie’s Disease
In most cases, the swelling and inflammation are temporary and will completely heal within a year. Some men take longer to heal and in rare cases the scar tissue will worsen, leading to erectile problems.
For men who have Peyronie’s for longer than a year, the most common treatments have included an incision of the scar and tissue grafting, as well as penile implants.
However, men suffering from Peyronie’s disease might want to consider an injectable treatment, now offered at Allure Plastic Surgery Center, called the PRP-Shot.
Dr. Elliot Heller, a Manhattan plastic surgeon, had this to say about the PRP Shot.
“Many men are requesting the PRP-Shot for Peyronie’s disease, erectile dysfunction and to merely add more vigor in the bedroom.”
The PRP-Shot is a non-surgical treatment that uses the man’s platelet rich plasma to provide natural male enhancement.
The male enhancement injection is quick, painless, and the results are long-lasting.
The shot works by increasing blood flow to and from the penis, which encourages blood circulation. The penis will also appear larger, and more serum can be injected in certain places to create the ideal looking penis.
The Treatment Procedure
Dr. Heller begins the PRP-Shot treatment by first applying a numbing cream to the penis to ensure the patient’s comfort. Blood will be drawn from the patient’s arm and placed in a centrifuge, where the platelets will be separated.
Dr. Heller will mix the platelets with a calcium chloride solution that encourages the platelets to release growth factors. The mixture is then injected into the patient’s penis.
Will the P-Shot Cure PD?
Immediately upon injection, the patient’s penis will appear noticeably larger. Results will then continue to improve over the coming weeks, with maximum size and vigor experienced in 2 to 4 weeks following initial treatment.
For men suffering from Peyronie’s disease, Dr. Heller suggests a series of PRP-shot treatments given every six to eight weeks. In addition to the PRP-shot, Dr. Heller offers a range of penile enhancement procedures, from penis lengthening to fat grafting for more girth, that can help those suffering from PD experience longer and stronger erections that are also symptom-free.
“Instead of waiting for the problem to go away and before resorting to surgery, men who suffer from Peyronie’s disease should first try the PRP-shot. The treatment takes a few minutes and can help tissues heal and improve circulation, all by using the patient’s very own blood platelets. It’s a natural alternative to male enhancement, and incredibly affordable,” said Dr. Heller.
