What Is Penile Shrinkage?
Penile shrinkage is a medical condition where the penis experiences a decrease in size. The shrinkage can be permanent or may be treatable. The decrease in size of the penis will differ from man to man.
Causes of Penile Shrinkage
There are several factors that cause penile shrinkage. The most common are aging, obesity, prostate surgery, and Peyronie’s disease, which also causes curving of the penis. Other known causes include certain medications and smoking.
- Prostate Surgery: Around 70 percent of men who have undergone prostate surgery experience mild to moderate penile shrinkage. Although there is no definite reason found, there are several hypotheses for this condition. One is stiff scar tissue that appears around the erectile tissue. Other potential causes include oxygen deprivation in the erectile tissues and certain abdominal contractions in the groin that cause penile retraction.
- Aging: Men accumulate fatty deposits as they age. Fatty deposits in the arteries reduce the blood flow to the penis. As a result, the muscle cells in the erectile tissues become weaker and can no longer provide the strength necessary for reaching optimal erection size.
- Peyronie’s Disease: This is a condition in which fibrous scar tissues develop inside the penis. This results in the penis being curved during erections. In some cases, the bend may become quite significant and painful. It should be noted that the surgery to remove the scar tissue may still result in penile shrinkage.
- Obesity: Weight gain is another factor for penile shrinkage. The penis is attached to the abdominal wall. When the abdomen expands, this pulls the penis inward, thus creating the penile shrinkage condition. In these cases, the penis can be restored to its original size once the man loses weight.

How Does Botox for Penile Injection Work?
Botox injections are an effective way to treat penile shrinkage. Botox works by relaxing and paralyzing the dartos muscle, which is the muscle responsible for the retraction of the penis. The number of injections required will depend on the severity of the penile shrinkage condition.
The treatment will involve use of a tiny needle to administer Botox into targeted areas of the penis. This treatment is virtually painless and can be done within 30 minutes. Topical anesthesia may be administered to patients who are extra sensitive to pain.
After a Penile Shrinkage Treatment Session
The patient can go home immediately after treatment without any need for recovery. Aftercare instructions will be provided, including when certain physical activities can be resumed. The recommended schedule for treatment sessions will also be discussed after treatment.
How Much Does Penile Shrinkage Treatment Cost?
The price for treatment will be calculated prior to the treatment session pending the calculated number of Botox units used for your customized treatment plan. The number of sessions can also affect the cost of penile shrinkage treatment.
