The P-Shot is named after the Greek god of virility: Priapus. The P-Shot®, Priapus Shot®, is an injection of platelet-rich plasma sourced from the patient’s own blood. The procedure lasts 30-minutes and patients can begin to feel the beneficial effects on the same week with results accumulating over several months.
Men seek this treatment because it encourages new blood-vessel growth in patients with poor circulation, diabetes, or prostate cancer. The procedure also helps rejuvenate the appearance of the penis, causing increases in girth and even a bit of length.
Who Can Benefit from the P-Shot®
The best candidates for the P-Shot are men in their 40’s, 50’s, and 60’s. They may be experiencing ED, reuced sexual drive, or Peyronie’s disease. They may or may not be taking medications like Viagra, Levitra, or Cialis and want to try a different alternative to short-term PDE inhibitors.
The P-Shot works on the root of the problem, aiding blood flow to the genitals, increasing vascularization and regeneration of blood vessels through the body’s own growth factors within platelet-rich plasma.
How Does PRP Therapy Work?
Your blood is made up of platelets, plasma, white blood cells, and red blood cells. Red blood cells carry oxygen and white blood cells fight off infection. Yellow plasm is the liquid part of the blood that carries platelets, cells, and proteins throughout the body.
If you ever scuffed your knee as a child and saw a yellow goo start to form around the injured area, that’s plasma! Platelet Rich Plasma helps the regeneration of new tissue as well as introducing a variety of other growth factors and healing cytokines to the inflamed knee to kickstart the repair proccess.
Athletes like Tiger Woods have been getting PRP, or platelet-rich plasma, shots in other parts of their body in order to recover from injury. Kim Kardashian did a variation of the therapy when she got a Vampire Facial in 2013. These procedures use the naturally occurring best parts of your blood, have it reintroduced back into the body in a safe and noninvasive procedure that gives great results!
PRP’s Magic for Erectile Dysfunction & Size
PRP helps regenerate new vessel growth by improving the circulation of blood to the penis. Men who have undergone this procedure are able to obtain an erection with decreased use of ED medication. Most men also note an increase in penis girth and size.
Results Patients Have Reported
The P-Shot injects the most valuable part of your blood (platelet-rich plasma) back into your penis in order to increase a variety of metrics that determine sexual health. Men have underwent the procedure have reported:
- Greater strength and firmness of erections
- Increased sensation and pleasure
- A straightening of the penis (as in the case of Peyronies Disease)
What Can I Expect?
Here are the Steps of the Priapus Shot®:
- A numbing lidocaine cream is applied to the genitals, penis and testes.
- Blood is drawn from your arm in the same manner as a routine blood exam
- The blood is put in a centrifuge, separating out the platelet-rich plasma, PRP.
- The PRP is injected along the numb penis via a tiny needle, allowing the growth factors to spread in the area
- A penis pump is used immediately after the procedure and for 20 minutes a day for at least two weeks after.
The pump’s purpose is to expand the vessels and tissue, creating a visibly longer, firmer, and fuller organ. Most men report an erection the same day and there is no downtime required with the procedure.
“In a recent study published in the journal Archives of Sexual Behavior, 27 percent of roughly 4,000 men polled were dissatisfied with the size or shape of their penis. The study also noted that those men who were dissatisfied were less sexually active than those who were not.”
