I think I need an Implant

   Penile Implant

  • Penile implants are devices placed inside the penis to allow men with erectile dysfunction (ED) to get an erection. 
  • Penile implants are typically recommended after other treatments for ED fail.
  • There are two main types of penile implants, semirigid and inflatable.
  •  Each type of penile implant works differently and has various pros and cons.
  • The placement of penile implants requires surgery. 
  • Before choosing penile implants, make sure you understand what surgery involves, including possible risks, complications and follow-up care.

What is a penile implant ?

  • A penile implant consists of two rods that are made to fit into the two cylinders of the penis through surgery. 
  • These rods can be made up of various materials like silicon and are available in various varieties which we shall be discussing subsequently in this article. 
  • The penile implant has a good life and lasts for many years and in most cases an entire lifetime. 
  • The implant is not a metal rod but is still stiff enough to withstand most pressures and provide adequate rigidity. 
  • There are many implants available which also have other connections that fill these rods with water. 
  • These connections are placed in the scrotum and in front of the bladder. 
  • The penile implants that have these connection make it possible to rest the penis in a flaccid state and achieve the erection at will.

What are the types of penile implants ?

There are two main varieties of penile implants that are globally available:-

  1. Non Inflatable Semi-rigid Implants

   A)Non Hinged


2.Inflatable Penile Implants (Inflatable Penile Prosthesis)

  A)Two Piece ( Cylinders with Scrotal Button)

  B)Three Piece (Cylinders with Scrotal Button and Reservoir)

1. Non Inflatable penile implant:-                            

  • It consists of just two rods that are rigid. 
  • These implants have an advantage that they are cheap and most people can afford the surgery. 
  • However once they are placed in the penis, the penis always remains in an erect state. 
  • This means that the penis has to be either bent down forwards or worn over the abdomen to obscure the rigidity.
  1. Inflatable penile implants:-
  • They have the advantage that they can be deflated and the penis can return to a relatively flaccid state just like the normal penis. 
  • The disadvantage is that the implant itself is expensive and the surgery takes more time as the scrotal button and the reservoir also have to be placed.
