Penile Prosthesis Implant Q & A

A penile prosthesis implant is a type of surgical device that helps a man achieve an erection for the purpose of sexual intercourse. Penile prosthesis implants don’t affect the sensation of the skin on the penis or a man’s ability to have an orgasm. Penile prosthesis implants may be recommended in severe cases of erectile dysfunction (ED) when other treatment options have failed.

Two types of penile prosthesis implants are available. The basic type is an implant that contains bendable plastic rods that are inserted into the two erection chambers of the penis. Many men find this option is natural enough.

For a more advanced option, Dr. Gousse also offers a hydraulic, inflatable penile prosthesis implant that can be concealed more easily when an erection is undesired. Most men feel this is the most natural option.

The first type of penile prosthesis implant can be lifted or adjusted into an erect position for sexual intercourse. Since the plastic rods are malleable, you can move your penis into a comfortable position as needed.

The second type of implant involves a reservoir and pump that are surgically inserted into the body underneath the groin muscles. The reservoir is filled with fluid that connects to tubing within the two erection chambers of the penis.

When you want to get an erection, you activate the pump, which pushes fluid from the reservoir into the tubing in your penis. When an erection is no longer needed, you press the deflation valve on the pump to drain the fluid from the tubing into the reservoir.

For either prosthesis surgery, you may notice a small incision scar on the underside of your penis where it meets your scrotal sac. With the inflatable prosthesis, the prosthesis makes the penis stiff and thick, which may be preferred for a more natural-looking erection.

A penile prosthesis implant is only recommended in cases of irreversible erectile dysfunction (ED). Dr. Gousse may recommend alternative treatments, including medications and lifestyle modifications, before suggesting a penile prosthesis implant.

In most cases, you lose the erection reflex when a penile prosthesis is implanted. If the implant is removed, you may not be able to achieve an erection naturally. Dr. Gousse reviews the risks and benefits of the procedure with you to determine if you’re a candidate.

About the Penile Prosthesis Implant Procedure

 Irreversible erectile dysfunction can be treated with a penile prosthesis implant. It is a prosthetic surgical device that gets implanted into the penis or groin area. The device offers assistance for establishing and maintaining an erection.

One type of penile prosthesis implant uses malleable plastic rods that let you lift your erect penis and adjust it into a comfortable position. Another type of penile prosthesis implant features a pump and reservoir implanted under the groin muscles. This implant procedure is much more sophisticated, but patients usually like it better because they have improved control over their erections.

The reservoir is connected to the two erection chambers through a series of tubes. When you wish to have sex, you must turn on the pump to send fluids from the reservoir through the tubing and into the two erection chambers of your penis. After you’re done having sex, you activate the deflate valve to drain the fluids from the erection chambers and send them back to the reservoir.

When the implantation procedure is finished, most of the immediate redness will disappear after a few weeks. You’ll only be left with a small incision scar underneath your penis.

Medications and Lifestyle Changes

If you’re a male under 50 years old with erectile dysfunction, you can probably find relief with medications or lifestyle changes. Sometimes little things like a person’s diet or level of stress could be causing their erectile dysfunction. If you were to change your diet, exercise more, and find a way to reduce your stress level, it could probably do wonders for your erectile dysfunction problem.

Dr. Gousse will be the one to make that determination after your initial examination. Every patient has a different level of health and wellness, so your eligibility for the penile prosthesis implant depends on your current physical condition. You can trust Dr. Gousse to make the proper diagnosis and treatment recommendations for your condition.
