I wonder how cell protrusions, in particular filopodia, form and how much of the cell membrane do they use. Is new membrane formed whenever a filopodium is created, or is the membrane simply deformed into an outreaching protrusion?

It is often said that filopodia are $2.3$ times bigger than the cell, but does that mean the cell size is unchanged?
