Hey all,

I got my first round of PMMA about a month ago.
Pre-PMMA, I had 4.5'' Girth.

After a week I was sitting around 5.5 then progressively it started going down (which I expected).
I was hoping to keep at .5'' (5 Inch Girth) but I measured again recently today and I am around 4.75'' - 4.8''. Meaning, I really only gained .25''.

Is this common? Will I continue to keep losing?
Its a little bit discouraging to think that I gained so little but not sure if that is a common thread?

I was meticulous with the aftercare and continue to pump and stretch.

I am planning to wait until January to go back for Round 2.

Is it possible that I'll gain back any in that time? Or does that not really happen?

My end goal is 5.5'' and I was hoping to get to that goal by Round 2 but it looks like I am a slow gainer through this process..

Any thoughts or personal experiences would be appreciated!

A few important things to note:
You're 1 month post-op so much of that initial boost was the swelling. As swelling diminishes, so does the Girth (which I know you mentioned already knowing).

There may be a chance for continued collagen production but you're probably looking at your ballpark size right about now.

Results vary man-to-man, just like collagen production varies person to person. It's hard to say what plays a role... even round-to-round sometimes; my first round 9 years ago I gained a whole Inch in Girth, but my 2nd round was almost non-existent. Concentration of PMMA & volume do play a role for sure though; can you share how many cc's were injected as well as the % of PMMA (10% or 30%) ?

I received 9x30% + 15x10% = 24cc

I feel like I got a good amount, no?

If my end goal is 5.5'', I assume that my second time around, I should look towards getting the same amount (24cc) injected?

At the same time, I continually read on this forum that less is more. It seems as though anything after 2 big rounds + 1 touch up seems to increase higher risk of more noticeable irregularities.

My thoughts are that round 2 I should try to gain as much as possible and whatever I end up with after that, I should only touch up from that point on?
Or does it not matter?

lb44597,

Don't be discouraged. It's def a marathon and not a sprint to get it just the way you want it. For round 1, I got mostly 30% at the base and a little 10% midshaft....my mid only grew about 3/8ths of an Inch. So round 2, Dr. C adjusted and gave me all 30% which yielded slightly more midshaft.

Every body has a different collagen reaction to the PMMA. I thought 2 full rounds would give me an Inch midshaft Girth, but now have realized that it will probably take another full round. Be patient - the juice is def worth the squeeze in the long run!
