Scrotox (scotal relation with Botox®) has been popularized for some male patients who prefer to have lower hanging testicles with a more relaxed scrotum, mostly for costmetic reasons.
"I was researching botox for men online when I came across something called “scrotox”. It is apparently becoming an increasing cosmetic thing for men. I suffer from urological conditions and have been experiencing testicular/scrotal discomfort and pain for years and have been miserable. I was curious if doing this cosmetic procedure could also help me with relief of my testicular/scrotal pain. I called a few places and then found Dr. Theocharides and Nadine. I was nervous asking about this at first but then they were so easy to talk to and I felt completely comfortable. Dr. T agreed to do the scrotox on me for cosmetic reasons only. I went and had the scrotox done. It really didn’t take that long and I did not feel any pain at all with the injections. Dr. T was cool to talk with the entire time also and I was not nervous at all. He is actually a really cool and nice person and it was an enjoyable experience. About two weeks after the scrotox procedure I started noticing results and maybe by week 3 I noticed my scrotum was completely relaxed and the best part was that I did not feel my scrotal/testicular pain anymore either. It has been about 2 months now and I’m still pain free. As for appearance my scrotum used to be tight all the time and my testicles were up near my body. They almost never hung freely. Now my scrotum is completely relaxed and testicles hang much lower. So now I am pain free and also enjoying the cosmetic appearance of having low hanging testicles. It has also improved my sex life as well. I am completely satisfied. If you are curious about getting scrotox I highly recommend Dr. T and Nadine. They are a great team. I will definitely be going there for all of my facial botox and scrotox treatments from now on. You will be in good hands if you do too."- CN / Office Visit / Mar 12, 2021
WHAT IS SCROTOX?
Scrotox is a non-surgical cosmetic procedure of the scrotum using Botox or other wrinkle-relaxing injections. This treatment can help to temporarily smoothen the wrinkles on your scrota, relax the muscles in your scrotum, and allow your balls to hang a little lower. All of these contributes to an overall improved aesthetic appearance.
THE BENEFITS OF SCROTOX
Most male patients (for men) get Scrotox for cosmetic reasons - to have the scrotum and testicles appear larger by hanging lower. This may increase confidence and enhance performance or sexual satisfaction.
Others request this because they have pain - from an overactive scrotum. This could happen during relations or spontaneously. Some will find a benefit with less sweating in this area as well.
HOW IS IT DONE?
After the scrotal skin is cleaned and anesthetized with local anesthetic cream, tiny almost painless injections are placed. The procedure is quick and there is no recovery required except to avoid strenuous activity for the day of the procedure.
HOW LONG DOES IT LAST?
Like with most BOTOX® treatments in other areas, this usually lasts 3-4 months for most men.
WHAT ARE THE CONTRAINDICATIONS OF SCROTOX?
If you are taking blood thinners like aspirin or coumadin, you have a greater chance of a bruise. Any active infection in this area would be a reason to postpone your treatment. If you had an injury or a scar in the area, your results may be less effective.
Although no long-term studies are available, there are no known long term consequences and the use of BOTOX® in this area is used off label - meaning it is not FDA approved for the scrotum. *If you are actively trying to have children, many advise to postpone this treatment.
