Summary: Priapus shot uses PRP technology and injects the patient’s blood into the penis, no drugs are involved. It claims to increase both length and girth. Penuma implant is a permanent male enlargement surgery that inserts a soft silicone sheath under the penis skin. Only increases the girth.
Since the known history men have been conscious about the size of their penises and larger penis size has been considered desirable. This has led to the birth of a million-dollar industry of penile enlargement from oils, herbs, pills, injections, shots, and surgery. For centuries men have been gambling money and risking their health just to enlarge their penis, purely for cosmetic purposes. The riskiest procedures are surgical and we only have a handful of permanent male enlargement surgical procedures that are FDA approved.
Currently, Penuma implant and AMS 700 are only FDA-approved procedures for cosmetic enlargement of the penis. On the other hand, there are patented procedures like P-Shot that, not subjected to FDA approval as they do not use any drug and yet are marketed and practiced globally. This article will compare the Penuma silicone sleeve implant with the priapus shot in terms of cost, results, safety, and complications.

Permanent Male Enlargement Surgery
Permanent male enlargement surgery is medically warranted only in case of a micropenis which is usually caused by other hormonal problems. A micropenis is 3.6 inches or less in length, and any penis that is nearly 4 inches or above is considered normal size. Technically, a penis capable of sexual intercourse and urinary function has no medical reason for surgery. Hence a wide majority of permenant male enlargement surgeries performed are purely cosmetic. Most enlargement surgeries will involve cutting of a ligament, placing a silicone or fat implant, and skin grafting. Penuma is a soft silicone implant that was the first male enhancement implant that FDA approved for cosmetic purposes in 2004.
What is Penuma Implant?
Penuma is a soft silicone sheath that will be inserted under the skin of the penis. to stretch the penis skin and make it appear and feel larger. It adds lengths, corrects any minor indentations, and adds to the girth. This helps many men in gaining body confidence and relieves them of performance anxiety. It also helps in making erections appear and feel firmer making intercourse more pleasurable for men and their partners.
What will happen during Penuma Implant Surgery?
It is an outpatient treatment which means you will not need to be admitted to the hospital. The doctor will give local anesthesia and make a small incision above the base of your penis and another incision along the shaft to insert the implant. Efore insertion the implant will be contoured to match the shape of the patient. After insertion, the implant is secured by tiny indetectable sutures. The doctor will place a JP drain in the incision which will be removed 3 days after the surgery.
Is Penuma Implant safe?
As the procedure is FDA approved you can trust it to be safe, and with proper aftercare, there should be no scarring or complications. Since 2004 thousands of men have undergone this surgery globally.
How much does Penuma increase size?

Findings indicated an average of 56.7% increase was measured with an over 80% patient satisfaction with results. On average patients saw an average of nearly 1.5 to 2 inches increase in grith. While it makes the penis appear bigger it does not technically add to the length of the penis.
How much does the Priapus shot increase size?
Most websites of service providers are claiming over an inch of increase in length and girth. Some even claim that an increase of 2 to 3 inches in length can be seen after 2 to 3 weeks of the shots.
How long does it take for Priapus shot to work?
It is claimed that P-shot can take two to four months to reveal the full results, however, some patients have seen improvements immediately. As after platelets are injected into your penis it can take them to get things going, so one must not expect an immediate enlargement effect. But the procedure involves a 10-minute session of vacuum suction at the end which draws the blood into the penis, which can create an engorged effect.

While P-Shot does not promise permanent or life long-lasting results, most websites of certified practitioners do claim that results will last from 12 months to 18 months. However, there is always a disclaimer that results can vary across individuals.
P-Shot vs Penuma Implant Surgery
Let’s compare the two procedures across cost, results, aftercare and possible complications
While there is no standard price set of P-Shot globally clinics are charging anywhere from 700$ to 2000$ for an injection, which honestly sounds a lot for a procedure that only injects your blood into your body. Considering you are recommended to repeat the procedure two to three times a year, add up the total cost. On the other hand, a pneuma implant that is a permanent male enlargement surgery costs around 15000$. Both these procedures are elective and not covered by insurance.
Priapus shot claims to deliver an increase in both length and girth but Penuma Implant promises only an increase in girth with an illusion of an increase in length. As the results for P-Shot are said to last for 12 to 18 months, it’s unclear if the claimed growth will be reversed. Practitioners claim a 70 to 80% success rate of P-Shot while Penuma Implant has proven 81% patient satisfaction and results are permenant. Priapus shot claim to treat erectile dysfunction while penuma implant will not help with ED.
P-shot does not require any downtime or much aftercare at all. You will be instructed to use the vacuum pump regularly and avoid any NSAID painkillers or food supplements for 3 to 4 days. You can resume sexual activity 4 hours after receiving a P-Shot. With Penuma Implant surgery you will have to wait for six weeks before you can receive any sexual stimulation or have sexual intercourse. You will be advised to leave your penis alone for a minimum of 4 weeks other than urination. You will also be prohibited from lifting any heavy weights over 25 lbs. For 2 weeks.
With proper aftercare, there are no adverse complications or scaring reported with either procedure. However minor discomfort, swelling, and redness can last for a few hours after the P-Shot. After penuma implant surgery, like any other surgery men can experience scarring, bleeding, infection and seroma. Patients should immediately seek medical attention if such a problem arises.
