I think that: When PMMA stabilizes, it does not go away, it is impossible to lose the gains made. As someone has already mentioned, fluctuations in size are normal and can dipend from some momentary swelling (e.g., post-sex or post intense masturbation), arousal, where you measure the penis, and especially it varies whether you measure it standing, lying down, or sitting. In fact when sitting the penis will measure slightly less in Girth than when standing (check), because when sitting/lying the skin of the penis stretches a little more and thins slightly, along with the PMMA that is obviously attached to the skin.
I may know which post you are speaking of but I'm going to be frank - if photos aren't substantiating said-loss, I'm going to have to assume much of those losses are either (1) erroneous impressions -or- (2) erroneous measurements.
Many guys here have been willing to show their progress with photos over weeks, months, and years. Those with photos have NOT demonstrated any significant loss with permanent fillers, much less minor. So if someone were to claim they lost any size with a permanent filler, the burden of proof is on them.
There are also a multitude of factors in which you can get "false negatives" with respect to size loss:
- Change in Erection quality can yield variation in Erect Girth.
- Poor measuring technique and/or record-keeping.
- Diminished Girth by way of age (Atrophy), injury/disease (e.g. Peyronie's).
- Relying on measurements too early when the penis is still swollen, inflating your initial stats, and not having the desired immune response (amount collagen created), thus leading to disappointment, but having nothing to do with PMMA itself.
I have yet to see demonstrable significant loss of Girth
that can either (1.) refute any & all of the above 4 likely explanations
-OR- (2.) can demonstrate HOW the body would lose Girth despite the permanency of PMMA.
Until such time (and with no disrespect to those who might have made claims in the past), there is no reason to believe PMMA
isn't permanent. The literature backs it up, the science backs it up, and a long history of photo-backed progress reporting on this site backs it up.
