What are the chances that this will ever be used for penis enlargment purposes? Maybe for multimillionaires?



I think the chances are high, but the problem is that the procedure will be FDA controlled just like anything in the US. It will likely, for a long time, be only indicated for patients with some sort of serious injury or impotence. Especially if a full surgical transplantation is required - that entails huge risks, meaning the FDA probably wouldn't approve it for whimsical enlargement desires.

The first people who will have access to this technique will be military vets (victims of IED's). That's how it works - they are the only ones who currently have access to some of Atala's other stem cell techniques (stem cell 'skin islands' for burns, etc). Then the technique spreads from there.

However, I think Atala's team has it in their minds to strive to be able to just grow a new penis on the body, rather than surgically transplant a fully grown one. At the very least, wounded dicks would be ideally regenerated in vivo, without having to cut it off and transplant a new one. For all I know, this was the plan all along and they never even thought of a surgical transplantation - it's just hard to tell from the available literature.

Eventually though, as their techniques advance throughout the years, the FDA could indicate it for aesthetic use.

There are also other countries working on stem cells. China or some other country out there could 'borrow' this technology and apply it to whoever was willing to pay.

As someone else said, I wouldn't put your life on hold waiting for it. We have a long time to go yet, but at least it's something. Humanity won't have to deal with these issues forever. It's us who will have to perservere and suffer, but maybe we'll get lucky and get it in our lifetimes.

For now, live your life and if you want more girth, look into PMMA. Time is too precious to waste it waiting for something like this. I wasted like 2-3 years waiting for PMMA, and I'll never get it back. It's a huge regret.

Yes, but what about length? There is no procedures for guys without erectile dysfunction (who can get inflatable prosthesis with tunica graft), to get at least 1" of EL.

Of course, stretching is working, but it's very slow process and not everyone gain even .75"-1".

Yes,this year i will get either pmma or megafill (as now i am 50% one or the other)...about stretching i believe it could work like a lot of people confirm,but i can t wear it hours a day for one year to get an inch or so... plus the girth is more important and requires no time apart from the molding of the shape,so i ll go for it.
The fact that i am interested in atala is that maybe,when some years are passed from now,a lot of us will have some kind of troubles,someone worst than others,aomeone better,but with nearly every filler.
I am no genius about biology/chemistry,but if complications can occur fron fat transfer,that means that evey filler have risks..So my hope is that one day,even if a lot of us did get fillers instead of being wounded in a war, the magnificent dr atala will save our penises with his procedures [smile]

I was wondering...it coul be possible,if someone had not to work and could wear an extender 14 hours a day,and he had the craziness to do it,for maybe even 2-3-4 years,that he could gain maybe a couple of inches,or more? Or at a given time the gains stops?
Even though i wouldn stretch for 1 year to get an inch,i would consider stretching for 2,if i could get 2 inches. That would make a very big difference

I wanted to update this thread with some more cool links on Atala - in particular, the first one. Read up, gents. The future may be here in a decade or two.

Sorry, but this is old news. There's no new information about lab-grown dicks since oct 2014

In 2040-2050 it's probably will possible to "buy" 10" cock, but why we need this, if we will 60-70 years old farts?

I’m not sure if this has already been posted but here it is anyway.
There is also a company called Foragen whose sole aim is to be able to grow a foreskin in a lab, they’re based in Italy and funded by wealthy American donors. They aim to have this procedure available within 5 years, once they have this technology they will also be able to regrow shaft skin.

Thanks, Reklaw

Article by your link was published in october 2014, since then, there's some new information and updates. This information was posted in this thread: http://phalloboards.websitetoolbox.com/post/grow-your-own-penis-5606061?pid=1303779231

If you have any additional information about lab-grown penises, human clinical trials, etc. please, write it in this thread.

I wonder, why if there's exists some company that funded by rich people and aim a goal of foreskin restoration by natural cellular growth, why there isn't any similar company that want to create an effective methods for PE? I bet there's a lot of multimillioners or even billioners that have serious problems with penile size (micropenises or small penises under 5" BPEL), but we don't see any movements in media, or at social networks or at scientific publication agregators like "ncbi". It seems like nobody cares and there's no such a problem as small penises and micropenises.

True, although billionaires probably have sex slaves on a salary, who they pass off as a “secretary” or something like that.

It is way easier to create skin and attach it to the exterior part of the penis, than to create engineered tissue and attach it to the internal penile shaft. Maybe in the future it will be a procedure that implies the advancements developed by the Wake Forest Institute, but i could not see it possible without total dettachment of the penile glands and microsurgery, which would be very hard to develop, promote and sell.

I wonder if they could attempt the sliding technique for length with the lab grown erectile tissue. If so; I could see it adding 2-3 inches over time allowing the nerves, skin cells to adjust to the new length. Given guys with micro,embedded and overall dissatisfied penis’s, a chance at happiness.

This is the question that I'm also thinking about for a long time. Sliding technique is probably the only one option for gaining erect length, but unfortunatelly it can be performed only with a simultaneous implantation of penile prosthesis, because otherwise it's unavoidable leads to ED.

As for gaining of erect length due to this technique: your guess about gaining 2-3 inches (5-7.5 cm) is simply impossible, because even if you make a full tunical incision and stretch the penis as much as you can, you still will be limited by the maximum length and elasticity of the urethra and NVB (neurovascular bundle). In articles regarding sliding technique, authors reports that the average gain is 2.5-3 cm and total range is about 2-4 cm.
