Genital beading (or genital pearling as it’s sometimes called) is a procedure in which one or more implant-grade silicone beads (or strings of beads) are implanted under the foreskin of the penis. These implants can be kept in for life, but they are also easily removed (by a professional only) at a later date if you change your mind.

We have individual silicone genital bead implants available in two diameter sizes, 4.75mm and 6.35mm (most commonly implanted as a set of three vertically along the shaft).

We also have silicone genital bead string implants in two diameter sizes, 4.75mm and 6.35mm with a choice of 5 or 7 beads per string. Beads strings are implanted horizontally (around the shaft, not along it).
4.75mm on a 5-bead string gives a total implant length of 25mm.
4.75mm x 5 (length of 24mm)
4.75mm x 7 (length of 35mm)
6.35mm x 5 (length of 33mm)

The two strings pictured here are a 7-bead string at 4.75mm and a 5-bead string at 6.35mm. The strings sizes are relative to each other and as you can see, there is a difference between the two sizes.

We also have silicone rib implants available:
25mm length (3.2mm thickness at the centre bead)
35mm length (4.3mm thickness at the centre bead)
45mm length (5.5mm thickness at the centre bead)

It takes around 6 minutes to implant a single bead or bead string. A needle is used for the opening, followed by a taper to the size of the bead, followed by the bead or string itself. An appointment for 8 beads/strings/ribs is about an hour. As long as you use the anaesthetic cream linked below, you won’t feel anything.

Suture stitches are used in this procedure, so you will need to remove them around 7 days later. You can have your sutures removed at a walk-in clinic, but most of my clients remove them themselves (very easily).

The entry point for the implant is normally fully closed 5-7 days later and the swelling will dissipate over 3 weeks. No sexual activity for 2 weeks.
The scarring is usually completely invisible by 2 months.

Please book a minimum of two weeks in advance as all our silicone implants are custom ordered from the USA.
