Whilst you may experience some tenderness following the procedure, most patients report no downtime and you can generally return to normal daily activities immediately. It is fine to drive home. We recommend the following post-care:
After the procedure, a stretchy bandage or silicone sheath will be wrapped around the penis to minimise swelling, assist with product placement and prevent retraction. We ask that you leave this on for a minimum of 24-48 hours and you may re-wrap if the bandage comes off sooner.
Try to point the penis “up” for a few days after treatment.
It may take a couple hours for the induced erection to subside, please try to urinate once it has. Where erection lasts for longer than 4 hours, please follow post-care instructions to help this settle.
There is some malleability to the product for 2 weeks after injection. You may use this time to massage any bumps or smooth irregularities, but please don’t over do it. The dermal filler will integrate with penile tissue after 2 weeks so any residual bumps after this time will need to be dissolved or break down over time.
Avoid intercourse or manual satisfaction for 5 days and no unprotected anal sex for 1 week. Keep the penis clean and wash after sex for the first week.
Take any medications that have been prescribed by your treating doctor.
Unless otherwise instructed, do not use penis extenders or other devices that fasten around the shaft for at least 4 weeks. Tight straps or vacuum devices may cause the product to shift or cause indents.
Dermal fillers may interact negatively with Vitamin E, blood thinning medications, anti-inflammatory drugs, steroids and St John’s Wort. Unless prescribed, do not take these for a few days before or after CALIBRE treatment.
You may drive immediately after treatment and no time off work is required.
Whilst complications are rare, you may experience:
Some bruising and tenderness – this varies a lot from patient to patient. Bruising will often become more apparent a day or 2 after the procedure.
Swelling for a few days that may be quite impressive. Do not be alarmed, this will settle and if required, we will provide you with anti-swelling medication. If swelling remains beyond a few days, please contact our clinic.
Due to natural tissue bands under the penile skin that can be difficult to identify along with normal penile retraction when flaccid, we may not achieve perfect symmetry in a single session. For this reason, we prefer to inject in a 2-phase program, with corrections made during the 2nd session.
If you have any significant pain or difficulty passing urine, please call and speak to one of our therapists as soon as possible.
It takes a couple weeks for our dermal fillers to stabilise, absorb water and look its best. For this reason, we ask you to come back for a follow-up consultation 3-4 weeks after treatment. If more product is required to ensure even coverage, this can be injected during your follow-up consultation.
