Named for the Greek god of virility, Priapus, the P-Shot involves harvesting your own plasma-enriched growth factors in your blood, and injecting them into specific areas of the penis. The process involves drawing a small amount of blood from the arm, then transferring it to a centrifuge, where it spins for about 10 minutes to separate the platelet-rich plasma (PRP) and the platelet-poor plasma (PPP). The PRP is then taken from the tube and re-injected into the penis, which ostensibly stimulates blood flow and makes the penis appear larger and rejuvenated. There is also a version for women called the O-shot.
Growth factors & proteins released by the high concentration of platelets in PRP activate stems cells and stimulate cellular repair and regeneration wherever they are applied in the body. In addition, collagen production and the formation of new blood vessels occurs and further aids in tissue repair.
It should take about 60 minutes from start to finish but we like to allow a little extra time. You may drive yourself home after the procedure.
You may resume sexual activity about 4 hours after procedure on the same day.
Since PRP is extracted from your own blood, there are few and only minor potential side effects. These include minor bleeding or bruising, swelling, and very rarely infection.
