Penile Implant Surgery
Provided in collaboration with Mens Health International Surgical Centre in Switzerland surgeons
A penile prosthesis, or penile implant, is one of the oldest and effective treatments for the condition of erectile dysfunction. The medical device which is surgically implanted within the corpora cavernosa of the penis provides the highest levels of patient and partner satisfaction of all available treatment options.
There are mainly two types of implants
The inflatable penile prosthesis
Malleable penile prosthesis
Both implant types are custom fitted to your body and allow you to have a satisfactory erection for sexual intercourse.
The primary difference between the two penile prosthesis types is that flexible rod implants produce a permanently firm penis, while the inflatable prosthesis produce a more natural erection.
What Is Sex Like With the Prosthesis?
When the penis is inflated, the prosthesis makes the penis rigid and thick, similar to a natural erection.
A penile prosthesis does not change sensation of the penis or a man’s ability to reach orgasm. Ejaculation is not affected.
Prosthesis implants produce erections suitable for intercourse. Satisfaction rates with the prosthesis are very high, and typically 80%-90% of men are satisfied with the results.
