What is the Priapus Shot®

What is PRP – Platelet Rich Plasma?

PRP Platelet Rich Plasma is a treatment derived from a person’s own blood platelets. PRP contains a number of growth factors which stimulate cell repair and damage control. In the field of cell therapy and tissue regeneration research is continuing to progress regarding the use of PRP’s ability to attract, stimulate and orchestrate stem cell activity to improve wound healing and naturally rejuvenate skin and other tissues. PRP, which also contains a number of stem cells itself, has been successfully used throughout a large variety of medical specialties (Orthopedics, Sports Medicine, Dental & Facial Reconstruction, Neurosurgery, Dermatology, Plastic Surgery, etc.) for tissue regeneration and repair and to help patients avoid surgery or other risky interventions.


PRP for the Penis: The Priapus Shot®

How will Dr. Iannitelli Perform the Procedure?

After your consultation:

  1. A numbing lidocaine cream is applied to your penis.
  2. Blood is drawn from your arm, just like when you have a blood test done.
  3. Your blood is put in a centrifuge
  4. The platelets from your blood are transferred into another tube where a few drops of calcium chloride solution trick the platelets into thinking that they are in the body and the body has been injured.
  5. The platelets release growth factors into the liquid of the tube.
  6. The liquid is transferred into a syringe and injected into your penis using a tiny needle in a way that distributes the growth factors in the proper way.

The Priapus Shot® should result in all of the following:

  • Your Penis will be Immediately larger
  • It will Strengthen your penis
  • It will Straighten the penis
  • You will have increased circulation within the penis for a healthier organ.
  • Make other therapies work better if you still need Viagra or Cialis.

  • There will be No lumpiness
  • There is Minimal pain, no burning from the PRP because it is your blood from your own body.

(Answers provided by Dr. Runels directly)


Question: I did some research and most people say it takes three weeks to notice results but you said you saw it immediately. Please explain? Could it be that everyone reacts differently to it? thanks and talk soon.
Answer: If you read the numbers on the PRP research that I posted above, then you will see something similar to what I have observed. The initial volume is from the combination of the platelets and the serum (or water) in the blood plus all the growth factors in the water that the activated platelets are starting to release.

Then over the next three days some of the the water is absorbed by the body. Then there is the growth of new tissue that continues for at least 12 weeks–bringing the volume back up to close to where it was with the initial injection.

So, volume goes up IMMEDIATELY, then goes down to various degrees but slowly over the next three days. In some people this decrease in volume is very small, in others it is a more noticeable decrease. In some, I’m seeing a growth back to where it was with the initial injection or better. In others, there is growth but not quite back to where we started. Smokers have the least amount of growth.

Again, I am speaking mostly from my experience with injecting the face. I see no reason why the same would not happen with the penis, but my experience there is less.

Question: How much growth can I expect?
Answer: 10 to 20% increase in length and girth. An inch in length (a little more) and in girth was seen in the first two patients in the first month. Girth came first (with the injection), then length (with continued growth). I do not yet know if a second injection at 4 to 8 weeks will cause another growth spurt.

Question: Where is the injection put?
Answer: Directly into the corpus cavernosum with a small needle, and into the head of the penis–in a way almost exactly as done with those who use injections for erectile dysfunction.

Question: What about scar tissue?
Answer: If you look at men who inject 3 to 5 times a week over many years for treatment for erectile dysfunction, there is about a 10% incidence of scar tissue formation. This is with multiple injections for years. With this procedure, there is only one injection, so the chances of scar tissue should be almost nothing. In the face, there has not been the report of any fibrosis or scar tissue formation.

Question: Does it hurt?
Answer: I use a lidocaine cream (a strong version of what you might find in a spray to kill the pain of sunburn). It’s the same cream I use on the face before injecting the lips or other areas with Juvederm. The pain is about the same as a normal shot to the buttocks, perhaps less.
