Doctor warns against viral Scrotox trend claiming it can make your penis look smaller

EVER heard of Scotox? Men are now injecting Botox into the scrotum to decrease sweating, reduce wrinkles, and make the scrotum appear larger due to the relaxation of the muscles.

However, this non-invasive surgical procedure might backfire as it can drastically alter the look of the penis.


Dr. Anthony Yuon warned millennial men – who are the ones mainly undergoing this procedure, according to Men's Contemporary Health Center – to steer clear of this procedure.

"This is probably the dumbest cosmetic procedure ever," he began in his TikTok video.

"It's called Scrotox and that means you can inject Botox into your ballsack to cause it to hang lower."

He proceeded to show two diagrams of what it might look like in real life and the appearance of the scrotum was visibly bigger.

However, that altered the "size" of the penis as it gave the illusion of it now being smaller.

"If you put both diagrams side-by-side, the penis looks shorter – so would you trade a smoother ballsack for a shorter-looking penis?"

Scrotox, according to Innovative Men, a clinic that performs this procedure, "is painless and involves applying a topical cream to numb the area.

"Then there are several small injections made with a fine needle into the testicle skin (but not into the sack itself).

"The downtime is virtually non-existent and the result is a smoother and larger appearance."

The results don't happen immediately as it can take several days for the Botox to take effect.

The effects will also last around four months before you need a second round of injections.

Although not scientifically proven, "one doctor warned that if you were trying to have children, there is a possibility that it could temporarily lower your sperm count.

"Your testicles expand and contract as a means of regulating heat.

"Scrotox causes your testicles to hang lower and appear more full but this may have a temporary effect on temperature regulation which, in turn, can impact your sperm count."
