Why Penile Implants?

While many treatment options exist for erectile dysfunction, penile implants are considered a long-term solution for those who haven’t found success with other interventions.

Many men report the following benefits of a penile implant:

      • A reliable solution

      • Allows for spontaneity in sexual activity – you can use them whenever you want, for as long as you want

      • The components are all on the inside – noone knows they’re there unless you want them to

      • Improved quality of life. ED can be extremely isolating and a big cause of anxiety. Since the implant is a definitive fix for ED, it can help treat the psychological burden of this medical disease as well. 

      • In the right patients, satisfaction rates are as high as 95%

    Types of Penile Implants

    The two main types of penile implants are inflatable implants and malleable implants.

        • 3-Piece Inflatable Implants
              • These devices consist of a pump, reservoir, and inflatable cylinders.

              • When the pump is activated, it transfers fluid from the reservoir to the cylinders in the penis, creating an erection.

              • Inflatable implants offer a more natural-feeling erection and the ability to control the duration of the erection.

          • Malleable Implants
                • Also known as semi-rigid or non-inflatable implants, these devices consist of bendable rods that are surgically implanted into the penis.

                • While malleable implants maintain a constant firmness, they can be discreetly adjusted to a more concealed position when not in use.

          Depending on the type of implant, your surgeon will talk with you about what to expect. The surgery usually takes a couple hours and you can go home following the procedure. After inserting the implant, your surgeon will close the incisions with dissolvable stitches. It is important to monitor closely for any signs of infection or pain.

          Am I a Candidate for a Penile Implant?

          Penile implants are becoming increasingly common. They are intended to be a long term solution to erectile dysfunction. 

          You may be a candidate:

              • If you aren’t a candidate for other treatments

              • If other treatment options have failed

              • If you have a severe case of ED that includes scarring, Peyronie’s disease, or another complication

            Keep in Mind

            Not every man is a candidate for a penile implant. Penile implants also won’t make your penis any larger than it is at the time of surgery.
