Penile Implant Surgery in La Canada Flintridge, CA
Understanding Penile Implants
A penile implant is a device used to help men with erectile dysfunction . Penile implant surgery is often recommended for those who are unsatisfied with less invasive alternatives such as medications or injection therapy. In many cases, the implant is not noticeable after the surgical wounds have healed. An orgasm may be achieved with a penile implant so long as the patient had the ability to achieve an orgasm before having the surgery.
Types of Penile Implants
Once placed inside the penis, the implant typically offers support in one of the following ways:
Flexible Rod Support
A flexible rod implant involves implanting a semi-rigid rod into the penis which can be flexed up or down to quickly achieve an erection. This is a popular option for those with spinal cord injuries as it is believed to provide higher sensation.
Inflatable penile implants work by implanting two inflatable rods into the penis connected to a reservoir of saline. A separate pump (typically located within the scrotum, behind the groin, or in the lower abdomen) can be compressed, sending the saline into the tubes to inflate the penis. A 2-piece implant (in which the reservoir is placed within the scrotum) is a popular choice as it reduces surgical time and involves less complications.
Because of the highly sophisticated technology involved, penile implants are typically greatly preferred to the many, less effective alternatives. The satisfaction rate of patients with their implants has traditionally been close to 100%. With most procedures being covered by insurance, the thought of surgery is often the biggest obstacle men considering a penile implant must overcome. Recovery time is typically reported as being as short a couple of weeks with the surgery itself often taking less than an hour.
Penile implants can be a great option for those suffering with erectile dysfunction and can lead to a healthy, happy sex life. Request more information about penile implants today. Call (213) 814-0504 or contact Stephanie Wolff online.
