Two types of prosthesis, Malleable Rods and Inflatable.
Patients considering penile augmentation implant surgery can expect that the main outcome of surgery will be to provide rigidity of the penis for sexual intercourse.
Penis implants have many risks and benefits.
A malleable penile prosthesis is always the same length.
Inflatable penile prosthesis uses fluid to achieve harder rigidity.
Pumped Up For Penile Prostheses Inflatable Implant Surgery "Need Results Experiences For Penis Erectile Function Operation!"
I had one
(3 part) which stopped working and had to be replaced after two years. The 2nd
go-around has given me problems.
I had my prostheses inflatable implant due to a long history of reduced
erections and was pumped up for improved augmentation function so to speak. Nothing else helped, not even Viagra or a vacuum pump.
It works well, except the glans does not get hard,
and it just doesn't feel quite normal to the touch; I can feel the tubes in my
penis. The first go-around failed after 2 years, and I had it replaced.
I have a
large penis (and, unlike some, I did not lose length or girth) and the urologist
told me they put in the largest prosthesis implant the 2nd time. Now there is sort of a kink in
the tubes, when flaccid, at the base of my penis. I also don't like the feel of the
inflatable pump in my scrotum.
But, I should not complain. I at least have a decent erection.
What has been your experience? I need to talk.
I would like to hear from any men who have had a penile inflatable implant surgery to compare
In the hospital one day and out 23
hours later (three or four years ago). You leave the hospital pumped up. No problem
with sweat pants.
There were no complications. Just keep it clean. In a few days or
maybe a week or more, I went back (350 miles) by motor vehicle. I was shown how to
deflate and pump the prothesis after the examination.
I don't, of course, know anything about the dilation of my penis for length. I am
now, after three major surgeries (prostate,
artificial urethral sphincter and implant), an inch shorter that my original 6". The famous
surgeon said he made it as long as possible.
My penis is always the same length
except when I use Caverject penile injection.
The erect penis has greater girth and stands out less than
horizontal. It gets attention in the shower room at the gym. I've had guys make
passes at me "because I am so big". They don't know it doesn't grow. The lit says,
"It gives ones penis a more youthful look". Does it ever!
RRP implant surgeon - Posted by: doc06
I have post RRP impotence.
How do you find the best implant surgeon?. My local urologist picked one out of the phone book.
He says very few are being done. I don't buy it.
