There may appear to be many new forums, but don't let that confuse you. It was done so more topic-specific convos can be looked up more easily for members (kind of how the Progress Reports section was made to make it easier to follow reports instead of skimming through the General Phalloplasty Discussion board to find them).
It has most of the same boards found here, while others have been revised, and entirely new ones added. But for the most part, the "General Phalloplasty Discussion" board there will be the primary source for PE surgery dialog.

I know the launch of the new forum has been postponed numerous times since the inception of the idea.
The new forum is not 100% complete, however, I find that it is at a stage that can operate at full bandwidth and provide virtually all the resources that are already found here. The remaining percentage that isn't complete are mostly domain, direction, and organizational issues that can be resolved with weekly maintenance. Some other of the incompletions are due to design/graphic issues which will resolve itself in the coming weeks. I'd imagine the site being 100% by the end of this month/Early July.
Expect to find the link for the new forum either Monday or Tuesday of this week. When the link is released, it will be considered an official launch, even if the site isn't at 100%.
Please follow these instructions:
If you already have a username here, please register at the new site with the same exact username, especially if you have 10 or more posts on this forum.
I'm having issues with the site prompting you to complete registration by checking your email, so I'm telling you here that you must do this. You must check your email after registration and click the link which will complete the registration process.
The forum rules are almost identical to the ones found here, so even though you can post pictures again, keep in mind we are not to be posting anything crude, lewd, or distasteful.
Though not required, but recommended: If you already have a progress report on this site, feel free to use the same name of your thread but add a following: [PART 2] next to it. Then open your first post with a link back to your original thread found here.
The new forum is utilizing web-based software and it is not free. With that being said, if there are any issues (slowness, errors, etc), please report them all to the Feedback Forum on the new site so that I can address them accordingly.
PhalloBoards Version 2.0 Anticipated Launch Date: 6/26/11 OR 6/27/11, assuming no unforeseen delays.

(Not intentionally) in defense of these American doctors - I think there can be some concern that there are a lot of untrained or underground injection providers (Mexico, Columbia, Venezuela, etc) who use either poor grade PMMA and/or poor administration of PMMA. Such situations could actually result in the many side effects American doctors speak of, which include but are not limited to inflammation, granulomas, and skin necrosis.
This does not, however, explain why many of them criticize PMMA when done correctly without much elaboration or explanation.
Can anyone recall/confirm which PhalloBoards member had this done (or was it a non-member)...and furthermore can anyone recall/confirm which doctor performed it?
I think it is GSXR's given that his lady was helping him out with the photos, and the familiar gap/ring he had early on. I couldn't confirm this since I was having issues finding it via the SEARCH function.
For those who have not had access to a lot of photos, this is some good material.
I have a post on make me heal asking advice for pmma girth enhancement. The only reply I received was a lash from a dr that states "Don't be stupid or you will ruin your life!" gee doc, thanks alot for the verbal terrorism,
I find it outright shameful these doctors can make such reckless suggestions and not back them up with sound medical reasoning.

Of course none of them have diagnosed an infection solely as a result of PMMA, and I have yet to find someone who has. These revelations dd72 reaffirm my belief that American Doctors taint the PMMA option because it affects their bottom line.
Dr:Sorry I have NO experience with this for penis use Dd:I understand that dr, I was asking for an opinion. And if you can't give a hypothesis...in your experience.... Does pmma have a large complication rate? Dr:Cannot say for penis use but in buttock use no very low compl. rates. -Miami based dr
Didn't quite make out the grammar for the last sentence, was he saying there are low complication rates?

It appears we will launch without being 100% complete. This is because the remaining 10% or so are issues that will not impact the usage of the forum. The remaining 10% has mostly to do with domain management, redirection, and organization.
The rest of the forum (as far as its structure, security settings, etc) is at 99% completion and I hope by Monday or Tuesday to have it open for all. Thanks again.
Hey everyone, Whew!! 131 pages...I just finished going through them all - it's an amazing resource. Also it's great to find a non-commercial space where we can discuss these things. Thanks to all. Lots of things buzzing in my head with all this new info...so where to start?
My background: I'm fairly average, but definitely on the smaller side of normal. About 6" EL (+/- depending on horniness) and 4.5" EG. I turtle like crazy though, and my FL ranges from probably like 2" (less??) to 4", without any real reason. I really hate this! I'm not looking to become huge, but would like to be around 5 to 5.5" EG, and prevent the kind of crazy retraction I get now. (I've pretty much accepted that erect length gains are unlikely.) Aesthetics are really important to me, so if I go the PMMA route, I think it would be a smaller dose, with focus on touch-ups later. I have a couple questions after reading the thread that I don't think were addressed - I'd love any responses, especially from the vets.
1) There was a lot of discussion about the feel of the penis early in the thread, relatively soon after the "pioneers" had it done. Could some people who are now at least 6 weeks post-touch up (session 2 or 3) weigh in on how their penis feels now that they have the final results? How palpable are the PMMA threads? Erect vs flaccid?
2) I don't totally understand why the FDA has approved PMMA for the face, but not the penis? Is this because of the patent held by the current company, or did the FDA raise specific objections to PMMA use elsewhere?
3) Thread discussed why Viagra might not be a good idea during the procedure, but what about taking one right afterwards (or mid-procedure, so it kicks in right afterwards)? Having an erection for a few hours post-op might help guys massage where necessary and ensure even distribution? Any thoughts (or experiences)?
I'll leave it at that for now (but more to come!). I'm also hoping to contact some of the doctors whose names I've seen in the various studies posted here, in order to get a clearer sense of their ideas about PMMA specifically in the penis. Will definitely post back. Best to all.
Glad to have you here, and congrats for completing the entire thread, it is most definitely a crucial read for those considering this method.
As for your questions:
1. I'm 6 weeks out in a few days and well, everything seems natural as far as the "feel" of it is concerned. The flaccid behaves like a flaccid, and it becomes very firm when erect. It is more palpable in the flaccid - kind of like a cartilage-ish implant feel, although I suspect it would be undetectable to someone who doesn't know you have it when being touched. I don't think you can actually feel the PMMA beads. I think when anyone has described feeling what they thought were the beads may in fact have been feeling contour ridges in the collagen formation...since afterall, PMMA beads are about 40 microns in size and I'd be shocked if anyone could point them out.
2. Hard to say why but I theorize that by "adding penile application" to their patent would have only complicated/burdened the patent process (since as we all know that phalloplasty is quite taboo), so sticking with the more conservative "facial" approach might have been wiser. This is purely a theory, as to the actual reason why, I'm not sure anyone here knows.
3. My understanding is if you plan to have a procedure done, better safe than sorry. Definitely consult Dr. C regarding this, but I'm pretty certain he would be against it, until AT LEAST after your appointment. Do NOT self-medicate/prescribe under any circumstances on or around this procedure's date should you decide to get it done.
As for other doctors found on this forum, anticipate a generally negative feedback, since I doubt a FFT doctor will speak highly of Alloderm, or a Belladerm doctor speak highly of Dermal Fat Grafts, or that a Scaffold doctor would speak highly of the silicone implant. In the end, their practices are also businesses so keep that in mind.
justpitchingin: Anyways.. I have had the Elist procedure.. only 14 weeks post-op.. So far so good.. But be warned the girth is actually something that may not be appreciated as it may be a bit much for folks that are not into girth..

happy: guys that had Elist surgery recently and are recovering and all is well...I'd like to communicate with guys that had the surgery within the last year so I can gauge my progress

champ101: Dr Colin Moore is a butcher, NEVER allow him anywhere near your penis. His work is VERY bad and his fees are far in excess of others who complete these surgeries much better. He could not care less about his patients, his work is VERY bad.
