The Risks and Reasons to Avoid Permanent Filler for Penis Augmentation

By Lushful Team

Permanent penile enlargement is a hot topic among the patients seeking to enlarge their penis. However, permanent results don't always lead to satisfied patients. Review the risks before making a permanent decision.

Using permanent fillers to increase your penile girth sounds like a good idea when researching penis augmentations. While a permanent solution may seem attractive, it's crucial to consider the potential risks and reasons why someone might want to avoid permanent filler for penis augmentation. 

Limited Reversibility and Changing Expectations

One of the most significant drawbacks of permanent penis fillers is their limited reversibility. Unlike temporary fillers, which can be adjusted or dissolved, permanent fillers like Bellafill are designed to provide lasting results. If you're dissatisfied with the outcome or experience complications, it can be challenging, if not impossible, to undo the effects. Desires and expectations regarding penis size can change over time. What may seem like the right choice today might not be the case in the future. Permanent filler locks you into a specific size, which could become an issue if your size preferences change.

Health Risks

Permanent fillers, like any medical procedure, carry inherent risks. These may include infection, allergic reactions, tissue damage, and other complications. There have been cases of serious infections and deformities associated with permanent penis fillers, underscoring the importance of thorough risk assessment. 

Numerous studies on the efficacy and safety of temporary and permanent fillers in human tissues have been conducted; however, it should be noted that these studies generally last for 1-2 years. There have been few studies on the long-term effects of dermal fillers. The benefit of utilizing a temporary filler is that your body can naturally degrade and excrete the materials they are composed of. 

What is Bellafill made of?

Bellafill is composed of non-resorbable polymethylmethacrylate (PMMA) suspended in collagen. PMMA is a synthetic polymer commonly called acrylic, a transparent and rigid plastic. The collagen provides immediate volume and lift while the PMMA remains in place and stimulates the body's own collagen production over time. Bellafill is used as a dermal filler in other cosmetic procedures such as smoothing smile lines and treating acne scars. 

Is Bellafill safe?

Bellafill for girth enhancement has been tested for safety, however, we don’t know the long-term effects of PMMA injected into tissues. One could argue that in 25 years we could discover that hyaluronic acid or calcium based fillers are harmful, but those fillers can either naturally break down, or be dissolved. Bellafill penis filler may not be easily removable. The traumatic scarring from surgical removal can be seen in patients who experienced adverse reactions to silicone injections years after their initial treatments. When considering penile augmentation with permanent fillers, patients should do a thorough risk assessment with their Medical Provider to discuss the pros and cons of the fillers being used.

Results and Expertise

Regardless of what filler a patient chooses, they should seek a Medical Provider with the expertise and experience in penile augmentation. Achieving even results is not always guaranteed, no matter how experienced the provider is. Over time, the filler material may shift or clump, leading to an uneven or undesirable appearance. In the case of patients who have been treated with hyaluronic acid or calcium based fillers, the correction process is fairly simple. These temporary fillers can be dissolved or manipulated to correct any migration or nodule formation. With Bellafill penis filler, correction of undesirable results is nearly impossible. 

Not all medical practitioners are experienced in performing permanent penis filler procedures for penile augmentation. Finding a skilled, qualified, and reputable practitioner can be a challenge, and choosing the wrong provider can increase the likelihood of complications and undesirable outcomes. When choosing a provider it is important to ask thorough questions, ask for before and after photos, and read patient reviews. 

Where to Get Penis Filler in NYC

Lushful Aesthetics is NYC’s premier men’s clinic for Penis Filler. Chris Bustamante, DNP, NP-C is an Aesthetic Nurse Practitioner who specializes in girth enhancement using filler. Chris’ preferred method of penile augmentation with filler is to utilize a blend of hyaluronic acid and calcium based fillers to provide a long-lasting, but safe and natural result. Bellafill for girth enhancement has appeal as a permanent filler, but injecting plastic into the penis has many risks and can lead to an unnatural result that is unfortunately irreversible. Lushful’s temporary penis filler injections offer noticeable results with the flexibility to adjust your desired size in the future. While the results will slowly fade over the course of around 3 years, patients never truly return to their pre-treatment baseline size.
