Increasing Penis Girth: Fillers vs. Fat Transfer

When it comes to increasing the thickness of your penis, most men are choosing one of two options: dermal fillers or fat transfer.

Below we will compare these two options so that you can make an informed decision. It’s important to note that results will vary per patient.

Penis enlargement: Dermal fillers vs. fat transfer

Below are some of the key differences between these two penis enlargement procedures:

Dermal fillers

Dermal fillers are injected into the head and the shaft of the penis in order to increase length and girth. The firm texture of the filler provides patients with natural-looking results, with the penis being thicker while erect and flaccid.

The results of the procedure will depend on the experience of the surgeon as well as the filler that is used. Patients will need to return every 15 – 18 months in order to receive a top-up treatment.

And because the filler can be dissolved using a hyaluronidase enzyme, the results can be reversed if the patient later feels that they would prefer to return to their original size.

  • Average Price: $4,000 (1st Year)
  • No surgery required
  • Top-up treatments are required

Fat transfer

During this procedure, fat is transferred from areas such as the abdomen into the penis in order to achieve more girth.

Top up surgery generally will need to be performed every year, with lumpiness and fat reabsorption being the main concerns with this procedure. Steroid injections can be used to soften any hard lumps though. Harder fat nodules can be removed using surgery.

Most patients will need to receive up to 5 fat transfers spaced over 6 – 18 months in order to achieve a smooth appearance. The patient’s fat can also be stored for top-up procedures in the future.

  • Average Price: $10,000 (1st Year)
  • Surgery is required
  • Top-up treatments are required

Penis enlargement procedure cons

Below are a few of the downsides associated with both procedures:

Dermal fillers

  • Multiple treatments are required in order to maintain girth
  • Patient will be required to mould and smooth the filler during the first week
  • As with all surgical procedures, there is a risk of infection

If you experience any pain or complications, it’s important to seek assistance as soon as possible so that the fillers can be dissolved if necessary.

Fat transfer

  • As fat doesn’t occur naturally in the penis, the transferred fat has a low chance of survival, especially if a blood supply can’t be established
  • High chance of lumps forming when fat doesn’t survive in certain areas of the penis
  • Risk of damage to penile tissue
  • Scarring is possible
  • If lumps do form, a second surgical procedure may be required

Overall, dermal fillers are the safer and more affordable option and results can be reversed if need be. Just be sure to consult with a qualified and experienced surgeon for either of these procedures.
