Penile Pump Implant
Manage Control Over Erections
A male prosthetic penile implant is a surgically implanted device designed to restore erectile function in men who experience severe or irreversible erectile dysfunction. It is typically recommended for those individuals who have not responded positively to other treatment options such as medication or penile injections.
The procedure involves the insertion of a custom-made implant into the penis. There are two main types of implants available: inflatable and malleable. Inflatable implants consist of fluid-filled cylinders that can be manually inflated using a small pump. This allows the individual to achieve an erection when desired and deflate the device afterward. Malleable implants, on the other hand, are bendable rods that provide permanent rigidity to the penis.
The decision between these two types of implants depends on several factors including personal preference, overall health condition, and sexual activity goals. Both options aim to provide a natural-looking and functional erection during sexual activity.
While penile implant surgery carries certain risks like any other surgical procedure, they are generally considered safe with high patient satisfaction rates. After surgery, patients typically require some time for healing before resuming sexual activity.
In all cases, male prosthetic implants greatly contribute to improving the overall quality of life for individuals by enhancing their physical appearance, functionality, and self-confidence.
As with any medical procedure, it is essential to consult with a qualified medical surgeon like Dr. Raj to determine if a Prosthetic Penile Implant is suitable and safe for you. Dr Raj will consider your unique circumstances and discuss potential benefits as well as any associated risks or limitations.
Who is this for:
Individuals who experience erectile dysfunction or have undergone surgery that resulted in the removal of their natural penis. Additionally, those who have undergone pelvic surgery due to prostate cancer or trauma may find a male prosthetic penile implant a suitable solution.
The primary candidates for a male prosthetic penile implant are individuals who desire to restore their sexual function and regain a sense of normalcy in their intimate relationships. These could include middle-aged or older men suffering from medical conditions like diabetes, hypertension, or neurological disorders that hamper their ability to achieve and sustain an erection naturally.
Moreover, individuals with psychological aspects contributing to erectile dysfunction, such as performance anxiety or depression, might also benefit from this procedure. A male prosthetic penile implant can alleviate anxiety about potential failure during intimate encounters and help restore self-confidence and psychological well-being.
Implant options are especially beneficial for those who have tried other non-invasive methods, such as medication or vacuum erection devices, without achieving desired results. These implants are designed to restore the ability to achieve and maintain an erection, thereby allowing individuals to engage in sexual intercourse.
One major benefit is that the implant provides a reliable and predictable means of achieving erections when other treatments like medications or vacuum devices have failed.
Another advantage is that the implant allows for spontaneous erections, meaning there is no need to plan ahead or wait for medication to take effect before engaging in sexual activity. This can make intimate moments more natural and enjoyable.
What to expect:
Initially, a comprehensive evaluation for ED is conducted consisting of thorough patient histories, physical examinations, and psychological assessments. Upon identification of possible options the patient will be presented with an individualized prosthetic.
The surgery typically starts with the patient being administered anesthesia, ensuring they are comfortably numb throughout the procedure. A small incision is then made in either the lower abdomen, above the pubic bone, or just beneath the head of the penis.
Next, an implantable device, which comes in different types depending on the patient's preference and needs, is inserted into the penis. These devices are usually made up of two inflatable cylinders connected to a fluid-containing reservoir and a pump.
The surgeon carefully positions and secures these components within the body, ensuring they function properly when activated. Once in place, the incisions are sutured closed, allowing for proper healing.
After surgery, patients may experience some discomfort or swelling in their genital area. It is important to follow post-operative care instructions provided by medical professionals to ensure a successful recovery.
