Artefill is PMMA in bovine collagen as a carrier I believe, same thing as Bellafill.

Hunkydory - You're right, juvederm is the longest lasting HA (longer than belotero or restylane).  I don't know how long any of them last in the penis.  Voluma lasts a little longer in the face  Are you already seeing it dissipate?  Juvederm makes very hard lumps in the first few days...but yours smoothed out, right?  Restylane does this too...belotero isn't known for doing that really.  

Radiesse results should be gone by 18 mos in the face....much less in active areas (like cheeks) than inactive (temples).  I assume the same is true of the penis for the duration of the filler (18 mos) but the penis doesn't really have any muscle, so that "active" thing is questionable to me.  


Only PMMA is long term.  In the original post , I was trying to say that could be an upside in case you have lumps or unevenness... since the cost being higher is the obvious downside.  So, radiesse tries to claim it will lay down collagen that "may be permanent" but it does not.  Upon being pressed on that issue, the Merz representative told my friend that diagram was "for people who regularly get touch ups and refills of their Radiesse (R)"  so, that's a little pharmarketing there for you.  Drug companies just love the word "may" .

Part 1:  The first year - recovering 1/2" girth lost to Peyronie's Disease (Round 1 & 2 Metacrill PMMA)
Part 2:  Things starting to go bad (I had nodules removed and excisions wouldn't heal)  (After Round 3)
Part 3: Resolving Round 3 problems caused entirely by USA doctors.
Part 4: All PMMA (from all 3 rounds) hardened 6-12 months after round 3.
