Fat is reabsorbed by the body over 3 – 12 months after which ‘top-ups’ are required. A small amount of fat can survive in the penis for a very long time, however, the result is not permanent.
Fat is living tissue and its survival requires it to establish a new blood supply after being removed from the stomach. There is no fat in penile tissue naturally, so the survival rate, when transferred to the penis is low. Any fat that survives is distributed arbitrarily along the shaft with areas of fat survival and areas in which no blood supply has been established (fat necrosis). The result is lumpiness.
Claims are often made that a fat transfer to the penis will provide a permanent result, however, this is misleading. A small amount of the fat transferred to the penis may survive for a long time, however, any permanent size gain is most likely to be in the form of hard nodules of necrotic fat with calcification. In almost all cases a fat transfer will need to be repeated a number of times in order to smooth out irregularities and maintain any increase in size.

Penis filler is metabolised (absorbed) by the body over 12 – 24 months, at which point most patients have up to 50% of the filler remaining. In rare cases, penis filler can be absorbed more quickly, or last longer than expected.
