Phalloboards was born out of frustration due to obvious bias and censorship found on another penis enlargement forum, known as MyNewSize. The owner of that board, Chad Hedman, benefited financially from associations with certain Dr’s, who were promoted unscrupulously. Some of the unethical tactics routinely used on the MyNewSize forum included fake user accounts run by forum administrators, fake before and after pictures which often weren’t the results of the specific procedures actually being advertised, fake testimonials, and extreme censorship in which any post that deviated from the forum’s objective of building a seemingly flawless track record of their promoted doctor would be deleted. Many men were tricked into making poor choices on what they believed to be genuine positive testimony.
In addition to the extremely deceitful promotion of their doctors and surgical procedures, many men were also ripped off by Chad Hedman as there were countless accounts of customers purchasing penis enlargement products, sending payment, and never receiving their merchandise or a refund. Some even send down payments for thousands of dollars towards Phalloplasty surgery only to lose the money.

Here are some links that detail some of Chad’s criminal history, including his recent indictment for drug trafficking and a previous conviction, including jail time, for burglary.
Chad Hedman, 37, of Augusta was indicted on one count of Class B unlawful trafficking in schedule W drugs and illegal importation of schedule W drugs, and one count of Class C unlawful possession of a schedule W drug on Sept. 25 in Wiscasset.
Chad L. Hedman, 20, Stockholm, burglary, three years in jail, all but 120 days suspended, two years probation; two additional counts burglary, one charge theft, 120 days on each count to be served concurrently with first burglary charge.
Chad L. Hedman, 27, Bucksport, operating vehicle while license suspended or revoked, $200.
Basically, he’s certainly not the kind of individual who should be involved in the medical community. His history of dishonesty in terms of how he ran his forum and criminal activity should be more than enough for any ethical enterprise to not want anything to do with him. I’m sure you can all understand why at Phalloboards we are loathed to help promote him or anyone he is associated with in any way.
However, despite his past, the owner of Phallocare, a surgical broker known as Dan Salas, has teamed up with Chad to form a new company called Surgical Life Enhancement. This isn’t as surprising as it may seem, as Dan Salas’s own history in the surgical enlargement business is also pretty murky. He was partners with Chad years ago and participated in the deceit that went on at MyNewSize, and has worked with numerous surgeons over the years, often for very short periods of time, and doesn’t seem to care if they are actually any good at what they do or even what their background is.
He started off in the 1990’s working with Gary Rheinschild, who butchered numerous guys until he finally lost his medical license. Dan was one of the witnesses that testified against Dr. Rheinschild to the CA Medical Board, yet he had no problem at all working with him for all those years and being complicit in the butcher jobs being done, so long as he received his cut of the money.
See how Dan changed his mind to suit his wallet here:
He then worked with Dr Krakovsky, who is neither a plastic surgeon or urologist, but a cardiologist from Russia, who was taught by Rheinchild, so it should have been of zero surprise to Dan Salas that he damaged a lot of guys, ironically including Chad Hedman (read about what happed to Chad here: https://www.thundersplace.org/penis-enlargement/surgical-penis-enlargement-mini-forum-penis-surgery-27.html .)
After splitting with Krakovsky he then went to work with Rodney Barron, who has a past that screams “avoid me at all costs,”
Quite astonishingly those things didn’t seem to bother Dan Salas.
He then went on to work with with Dr Knight, who managed to lose his medical license shortly after they started working together. But of course there was still enough time to leave a trail of poor results, which of course Dan profited from.
Dan now markets himself as a PMMA and surgical enlargement expert on his Phallocare website. Yet I’m not sure what criteria he uses to arrive at such a title. He has absolutely zero medical credential, he has never attended school to be a nurse or a surgical tech, and lacks even a single vocational certification of any kind. He has a history of working with Dr’s who provide poor results and knew absolutely nothing about PMMA prior to it becoming popular on Phalloboards. Yet he ranks himself as an “expert” on the subject, alongside the likes of Professor Lemperle. Somehow I doubt you’ll see Dan Salas’s research on PMMA pubmed!
Dan’s modus operandi is to find Dr’s who will allow him to recruit patients for them in order to get a commission, which will usually be pretty sizeable as he increases that cost of the procedures from what the Dr. was originally charging, quite significantly. For example, he is now working with Dr. Camacho Melo in TJ, who used to charge $2500 for the ligament cut, when our members first came across him. But now he charges $5500! This is comparable or even higher than the price most US based Dr’s charge, so Dan has to find reasons why members would pay the same to go to Mexico, or in the case of PMMA, pay more than it costs with far more experienced Dr’s.
To do this Dan plays on the naivety of his potential customers and has his Dr’s perform the surgery in a slightly different or “new” way that he claims is advantageous, though it never is and is often detrimental.
For example, he has Dr C-M performing PMMA and the lig cut when the penis is erect. This offers zero advantage and in the case of the lig cut is surely detrimental. For one thing it’s actually not easy to get the right dose of erectile medication on one’s first attempt and it would be hugely irresponsible to do anything more than a very conservative dose. So the chances are the penis won’t be properly erect during surgery anyway. The PMMA carrier absorbs over days, yet the induced erection will last a matter of hours. So it’s utterly pointless. As for erect lig cut, that makes zero sense. The ligs hold the penis up to the pubic bone and the idea is to release them, pulling the penis downwards. Yet an erection angles the penis upwards. It’s plainly absurd! When Dan was working with Dr. Knight they started using Permacol as an alternative to Bellorderm, yet it’s clearly an inferior product for girth enhancement. The only possible reason for using it was to make their procedure “stand out” as the latest and most up to date. Recently Phallocare and Surgery Life Enhancement has started offering a combination of Macrolane (a product it’s own manufacturers say shouldn’t be used in the penis) and PMMA, which makes no sense at all, but will undoubtedly sound intriguing to some, especially once there are volumes of fake testimonials and forum posts regarding these procedures
Obviously these procedures need aggressive marketing and that certainly isn’t going to happen on this message board, where Dan’s shenanigans have already been met with a short thrift. So he’s recruited Chad Hedman, and they have set up their own forum. Chad will flood the forum with shill accounts, whilst at the same time manipulating the google rankings, so it’s the first forum unsuspecting guys will come across. The forum has only existed for 2 months, only has 102 “members”, yet already frequently has over 1200 people viewing at one time. To put that in perspective, Phalloboards has nearly 7000 members, has been around for 4 years and yet the most people we’ve ever had viewing at once is 129! So it doesn’t take a genius to work out something very fishy is going with SLE. Obviously there is nothing we can do about that other than to warn members not to trust a single post you read at Surgery Life Enhancement or Phallocare.com and to make you aware of both Chad and Dan’s past, as we now have.
However, since Chad Hedman has resurfaced, we’ve seen a dramatic rise in suspicious account activity on our forum. It’s getting to the point where policing this is becoming too time consuming for the volunteer moderation team to have to deal with. This more than anything was the determining factor in our decision to ban discussion of Dr’s represented by and procedures unique to Phallocare or Surgical Life Enhancement. If we simply ban discussion that could in anyway promote them or the procedures they offer, then they have little reason to shill our forum.
This Policy Implementation was not an easy decision to make and required the unanimous consent of the Moderation team. The contents above were authored masterfully by our Senior Moderator Hoddle10 and revised by the Administrator Skeptical One.
