Penile implant surgery

A penile implant offers a number of benefits:

  • it can help you return to an active sex life

  • it offers a permanent long-term solution to erectile dysfunction and provides the ability to have an erection anytime you choose

  • it allows for greater spontaneity to have sex when the mood strikes

  • it enables you to maintain an erection as long as you desire and eliminates the need for costly pills or shots

There is a broad line of penile implants from simple malleable to the most advanced three piece inflatable devices.

What are the risks involved?

The insertion of the penile implant requires surgery in hospital and you will experience some discomfort during your recovery.

The implant replaces the erectile tissue inside the penis, - hence, once implanted natural erections can no longer occur.

Precautions will need to be taken to prevent infections, which could jeopardise the implant and require removal of the prosthesis.

Other potential complications include malfunction of the implant due to mechanical problems or erosion of the prosthesis. In both cases further surgery might become necessary.
