Although we often do not say it openly, it is impossible to deny that one of the biggest concerns that we men have is related to our genitals. Specifically, it is the size of the penis and/or the aging of the scrotum which worry us the most. And it is totally normal to feel insecure! It is at times disheartening to see how the genitals change as the years go by.
Sometimes, the insecurity due to the male genitalia complex even leads us men to doing crazy things. One of them can be to turn to scrotox for example. Surrealistic as it may sound, scrotox is the aesthetic surgery which consists of injecting botulinum toxin in the scrotum. What for? Well, to decrease the wrinkles and for the testicles to look larger.
However, is this aesthetic practice good for a man's sexual health? Does this touch-up in the scrotum really work? Do people really resort to it?
Well, let me tell you that although in the United States the demand for scrotox has really taken off, in Spain this surgery is NOT allowed. The Spanish Society of Aesthetic Medicine (SEME) is not in favour of this practice: "It is neither medicine nor aesthetics," they argue.
Does scrotox really work?
Partly yes and partly no. It is true that, thanks to this surgery, the scrotum can look rejuvenated with fewer wrinkles.
In addition, it can help men with an erectile dysfunction by relaxing the muscles in the area allowing blood to flow more fluidly.
It can also help reducing sweating in the area, although this is not usually one of the major concerns a man may have.
However, not everything that surrounds this aesthetic practice is good, since it has many contraindications:
When you undergo scrotox, you may notice a considerable decrease in the amount of sperm produced due to a change in the scrotum's ability to regulate its temperature.
Furthermore, the results are noticeable for only 6 months and the first 6 weeks following the procedure there should not be any sexual intercourse.
On the other hand, even though your scrotum will rejuvenate, this will not help your penis look longer and wider than it really is.
And last but not least... It is an aesthetic practice that should be repeated every six months, and it costs 3,200 euros!
Is scrotox good for men's sexual health?
Scrotox is one of the most controversial cosmetic practices in recent years in Spain. Although it is on the rise, doctors do not recommend this surgery at all, since, according to them, the scrotal wrinkles wrinkles are there because they are functional, they protect from injury and help the testicles safely produce sperm by helping to regulate the temperature. So, could we be putting our testicles at risk? The answer is: it depends.
Initially the scrotox treatment was performed on patients with a medical purpose. However, although there are doctors who recommend it in these cases, the truth is that the boom of this surgery has been driven by aesthetics and is, in fact, not at all advisable.
With so many medical contraindications and so many expert opinions against it, for now this touch-up does not attract my attention. What do you think: for or against scrotox?
