Penile Prosthesis Implant Q & A

What is a penile prosthesis implant?

A penile prosthesis implant is a soft device that’s surgically placed in your penis. You can inflate the penile implant to make an erection, even when your body’s not cooperating. A penile prosthesis implant is easy to use and is well-concealed, so it’s not obvious you have one.

How does a penile prosthesis implant work?

Penile prosthesis implant function depends on the type of implant. 

Inflatable penile prosthesis implants

Inflatable penile prosthesis implants include either two or three pieces. These implants have inflatable cylinders inside your penis and a small fluid chamber in your abdominal wall or scrotum. You use a pump, which is hidden in your scrotal skin, to inflate the cylinders and create an erection. Then, you press a release valve, also in your scrotum, to return the fluid to the chamber and end the erection. 

Malleable penile prosthesis implants

Malleable implants are semirigid segmented implants hidden in your penis shaft. To get an erection, you bend the rods upwards, and then you end the erection by bending them downwards.

Each kind of penile prosthesis implant has its own advantages and disadvantages. Tricounty Urology can help you choose the one that’s easiest for you to use.

Who is a candidate for a penile prosthesis implant?

If you have erectile dysfunction and oral pills or injected medications don’t help, a penile prosthesis implant could be the solution for you. Penile prosthesis implants can also help if you suffer from Peyronie’s disease, a condition in which internal scar tissue affects both the elasticity and curvature of your penis.
