Autologous Fat Grafting for Penis Girth Enlargement

Autologous fat grafting for penis girth enlargement is a procedure that involves the removal of fat from one part of the body, for instance the thighs or abdomen and the injection of it into the penis. This is done to either lengthen the penis, increase its girth or both. It As far as penis enlargement is concerned autologous fat grafting is a relatively new procedure. Autologous fat grafting for penis girth enlargement is obviously a male-only procedure because women do not have penises.

When a man undergoes autologous fat grafting, he will have his own fat injected into his penis. This procedure is a pretty simple one but one that should only be done by an experienced and knowledgeable cosmetic surgeon. This will increase the likelihood that the procedure is performed correctly and that there are fewer complications.

There are other options available to men looking to increase the length and girth of their penis. A penile implant is one. However, there are a number of potential complications and risks associated with implants, amongst them (but not limited to), infection, the erosion of the device, component failure, auto-inflation, the migration of the device and sizing issues. Other options include dermal fat grafting and alloderm (cadaver) grafting.

The results of an autologous fat grafting procedure to increase penis girth will be dependent on numerous factors.
The skill of the surgeon will have a big impact on whether or not the fat grafting procedure is effective and done correctly.

One of the biggest problems associated with the procedure is re-absorption. The amount of fat that reabsorbs into the body will be dependent upon the technique the doctor uses and the body’s reaction to the fat graft.  When enough of the fat remains, the procedure can be a successful one. It is often superior to a penile implant and all of its associated problems and risks. Because the fat used is a patient’s own, there is no risk of the body rejecting the graft or an allergic reaction occurring as a result of it.

For men, the length and girth of the penis is very important. Penis size is often indicative of a man’s manhood, at least in the eyes of men and some women. Thus men with smaller penises may have a poor body image and may be interested in undergoing a procedure to lengthen their penis or increase its girth. Autologous fat grafting is one option. It’s important for a man considering penis augmentation to determine all of the options available to them and then choose the one that is most appropriate.  One of the best ways to do so is to research all of ones options. Talking to cosmetic surgeons is another. It is best to do both.


Step 1: Patient Preparation- The patient is prepared for the procedure. The area where the fat will be harvested from and where it will be injected will be cleaned. The individual will then be given a local anesthetic and perhaps sedation.

Step 2: Fat Harvesting- The fat is harvested from the area of the body the surgeon has decided to obtain it from.  This will typically be the abdomen or thighs.

Step 3: Separation of the Fat- It will be necessary to separate the fat cells from the fluid fat contains. This is often done via a centrifuge, which spins the fat until the above occurs.

Step 4: Injection of the Fat- After the fat cells have been separated from the fat fluid, it is injected into the penis to lengthen it, improve its girth or both. It may be injected to accomplish both.

After a man has undergone an autologous fat grafting procedure to increase his penis’ girth, he will experience some inflammation, pain and bruising. The pain will typically subside in 2 to 3 days. The bruising should dissipate within a week. The inflammation will typically be the last to subside. Many men will be able to perform sexually within 4 to 6 weeks.


The price of an autologous fat grafting procedure will vary. The reputation of the surgeon, the technique used and the location of the practice will all affect price. However, a good ballpark figure for this procedure is $8,000.


There are a number of complications associated with the use of autologous fat grafting for penis girth enlargement. One of the most noted complications is the re-absorption of the fat. Sometimes the rate of absorption is so high that it is necessary to have the procedure re-done. Other complications include the development of lumps, hardening of the fat and penile retraction. This affects the appearance of the penis and sometimes, also its function. Fat embolism, which occurs when the injected fat makes it way into the bloodstream, can result in a person having a heart attack or stroke.
