Penile Implant

What is a Penile Implant(Penile Prosthesis)?

A penile implant, or penile prosthesis, is a treatment for erectile dysfunction (ED).The surgery involves placing inflatable or flexible rods into the penis. Inflatable rods require a device filled with saline solution and a pump hidden in the scrotum. When you press on the pump, the saline solution travels to the device and inflates it, giving you an erection. Later, you can deflate the device again.This procedure is usually reserved for men who have tried other ED treatments without success. Most men who have the surgery are satisfied with the results.

Who’s a good candidate for this Penile Prosthesis??

You may be a candidate for penile implant surgery if:You have persistent ED that impairs your sex life. You’ve already tried medications such as sildenafil (Viagra), tadalafil (Cialis), vardenafil (Levitra), and avanafil (Stendra). These drugs result in erection appropriate for intercourse in as many as 70 percent of men who use them. You’ve tried a penis pump (vacuum constriction device). You have a condition, such as Peyronie’s disease, that is unlikely to improve with other treatments. You may not be a good candidate if:There’s a chance ED is reversible. ED is due to emotional issues. You lack sexual desire or sensation. If you have a urinary tract infection. You have inflammation, lesions, or other problems with the skin of your penis or scrotum.

Types of prosthesis?

Three-piece implant Inflatable devices are the most commonly used type. A three-piece implant involves putting a fluid reservoir under the abdominal wall. The pump and release valve is implanted in the scrotum. Two inflatable cylinders are placed inside the penis. It’s the most extensive type of penile implant surgery, but it creates the most rigid erection. There are more parts to potentially malfunction, however.Two-piece implant There’s also a two-piece implant in which the reservoir is part of the pump that is placed in the scrotum. This surgery is a little less complicated. Erections are generally a bit less firm than with the three-piece implant. This pump may take more effort to work, but it requires less hand dexterity.Semirigid implants Another type of surgery uses semirigid rods, which aren’t inflatable. Once implanted, these devices stay firm all the time. You can position your penis against your body or bend it away from your body to have sex.Another type of semirigid implant has a series of segments with a spring on each end. This makes it slightly easier to maintain positioning.

What is sex like with a Penile Implant?

When the penis is inflated, the prosthesis makes the penis stiff and thick, similar to a natural erection. Most men rate the erection as shorter than their normal erection. However, newer models have cylinders that may increase the length in addition to the thickness and stiffness of the penis. Another difference is that the glans, or head of the penis, does not become engorged or hard with the inflation of the device.A penile prosthesis does not change sensation on the skin of the penis or a man's ability to reach orgasm. Ejaculation is not affected.

I have used Cialis in the past in order to get firm erection. after sometime it didnt help. My doctor advised me to use ESWT technology. It was quite costly in Germany so I decided to get treated in Turkey also I always wanted to see Istanbul. I had few ESWT sessions and one G-shot session. It was all done in a week. I dont know which treatment worked but I can finally get firm erection without pills. ( Translated from German)
