Fat Transfer Penis Enlargement
Fat Transfer Penis Enlargement Surgery involves two surgical procedures that are completed during the same hospital visit.
In the first procedure, fat is liposuctioned from the abdomen or thighs. The fat is then filtered so that fat cells are isolated and other material is discarded. Next, the fat is injected around the penile shaft using bespoke injection techniques to ensure fat survival. As fat transfer cells come from the patient’s own body, there is no risk of allergic reaction.
The penile skin is thin in the area between the skin and the penile shaft, and this area does not have a rich blood supply. As a result, fat grafting to the penis has traditionally proven unreliable, with the main side effect being lumpiness, caused by fat necrosis.
It is critical that the fat transferred to the penis is pure, and the fat cells remain intact. To this end, surgeon Dr Horn uses LipiVage.
LipiVage creates a closed circuit from the fat donor site (typically the stomach, flanks and lower back) to the fat recipient site (the penis).
The closed-circuit improves the rate of fat survival and reduces the sterility of the fat transfer process.
With advanced techniques in fat harvesting, transfer and reinjection, we are able to achieve the highest rate of fat survival possible.
30-40% gain in girth is possible.
*Individual results may vary from person to person.
This system also prevents inflammatory reaction and fat necrosis, leading to much higher rates of fat graft survival and a less lumpy result.
Use of the LipiVage filtration system increases long-term fat survival rates significantly.
From £4,300, with Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP), and Puregraft.
Free removal of Hard Fat Nodules that may form in the first 2 years.
Due to the additional time required by advanced filtration techniques, the initial price is above average for this procedure.
Patients will save significant time and money in the long run, however, with fewer repeat fat transfer procedures required.
* Individual results may vary from person to person.
Significantly better filtration and injection techniques (Lipivage) allow us to achieve the highest rate of fat survival possible.
A higher rate of fat survival means that you might need fewer top-up procedures in future (potentially requiring as little as 5 or 6 fat transfer surgeries over a lifetime).
After the first injection, the patient will notice a significant increase in penis girth as most of the fat cells will still be intact.
The initial size will be enhanced somewhat by swelling, usually mild. The final result will depend on the amount of transferred fat that survives and the overall amount and distribution of fat cell necrosis (fall cells that do not survive), together with the extent of fibrosis and scarring which is usually minimal.
Fat is usually described as having a fat-like, or slightly softer feel to it, with a marshmallow-like consistency, generally having the same texture as fat in the stomach.
The texture does improve somewhat in the erect state, as the fat is compressed a little between the penile tissue and the skin.
Necrotic fat cells (fat cells which did not survive) can clump together to form had nodules in the penis. This is usually addressed by the injection of steriods (Kenalog 10) at the clinic for a number of months to try to break up the hard lumps.
