A penile implant is a prosthesis that can help a man achieve and sustain an erection for improved sexual performance and satisfaction. You may qualify for a penile implant if you suffer from erectile dysfunction and have not been able to successfully treat your condition with other therapies, such as oral medications and intracavernous injection therapy. You may also opt for a penile implant if you are not a good candidate for other treatments, such as penile arterial revascularization or venous ligation surgery. Penile implants offer many advantages for patients. These include:
- Improved sexual function: 93 percent of men with penile prostheses report satisfaction with their implants and sexual intercourse.
- The ability to achieve and maintain an erection at any time, for as long as desired.
- A natural appearance and sensation.
- Financial savings: On the whole, penile implant surgery is a lower-cost option when compared to short-term solutions such as injections and oral medications.
This prosthesis may not only restore your sexual function, but also improve your self-confidence and overall quality of life.
