Package Deal: Injections Make Penis Grow, Study Finds: My Article in MSNBC

Does penis size matter?
A group of researchers from Korea University apparently believes it does, considering they discovered a way to make it happen
They recently published a study in the Journal of Sexual Medicine that analyzed how injections of a hyaluronic acid filler (Restylane Sub-Q) could increase penile girth. These physicians injected an average of 20.5 cc (about two-thirds of a medicine cup) using “a back-and-forth technique” into the deep soft tissue layers of the penises of 50 men. The product was then ‘homogenized with a roller.’
The men’s penises had an average increase in circumference (girth) of 4 cm, which was maintained 18 months later. They also assessed the patient and partner’s satisfaction with the treatment and found an average score of 3.3 (rated from 0-4) at 18 months. Sounds like a nice result, right? Keep in mind these patients underwent injections into their penises with relatively hefty needles. Ouch.
So what is the average, less-endowed man to make of this?
