The head is the sesnitive end of the penis, separated from the sharft by the balano-preputial (prepuce) groove. The circumference at the base of the glans or head stands out to a variable degree. This is the crown of the glans or head, with a relief of 0.3 cm at rest and 0.5-0.7 cm during an erection. The surface of the glans is smooth, although a proportion of men have little bumps or papules, the ‘pearl crown’ of the glans. The skin which covers the glans or head is called the prepuce or foreskin.

Types and shapes of the glans or head, and its classification

Glans classification recognises the relationship between the glans and the foreskin.
The proportions of the glans or head itself, and in relation to the size of the penis, vary between individuals

Type I, no foreskin retraction.
Type II, urinary meatus visible.
Type III, half the head or glans is visible.
Type IV, glans or head exposed until just above the crown, where the foreskin starts.
Type V, total exposure of the glans or head.

Increasing the glans volume using hyaluronic acid injections

It is possible to increase the volume of the glans or head, and to modify its shape using hyaluronic acid injections, rather than having recourse to surgery.

Thanks to aesthetic medicine, we can:
– Increase the volume of the crown of the glans or head.
– Increase the girth of the glans or head ( the increase depends on the patient’s wishes ).
– Increase the length of the glans or head.
– Change the shape of the glans or head.

What happens during the glans augmentation session in my Paris office?

The injection takes about ten minutes, and will take place at the doctor’s office.
Thirty minutes beforehand, the patient applies an anaesthetising cream, or this can be applied in the office (it takes 5 minutes to act).
A small local anaesthetic is administered by needle to the base of the head.

Hyaluronic acid products used to increase glans volumeA supple, flexibly hyaluronic acid must be used: as such, I use Restylane.

Complications and indications of penile glans augmentation

Side effects and complications are minimal. Slight swelling might last for a few days, but there is no scarring.
3-5 days of abstinence are recommended after the injection.

Hyaluronic acid injections to increase the volume of the glans are used when the glans’ dimensions make the man ill at ease.
The counter-indications are the same as for any hyaluronic acid injection (see the relevant section). It si not suitable for sufferers of Peyronie’s disease.

Results of penile glans augmentation

The result is immediate and natural.Two syringes of acid lead to an average increase of 1cm. It is important to harmonise the glans in relation to the overall penis.
The number of syringes needed depends on the result sought. I suggest using two syringes to start with, as this quantity is enough for about 60% of men.Cost for glans or head augmentation using hyaluronic acid injections .
