A tube (catheter) might be inserted into your bladder via your penis to collect urine at some point during surgery. Our surgeon will make an incision below the head of the penis, at the base of the penis or in the lower abdomen.
Next, the surgeon will stretch the spongy tissue in the penis that would normally fill with blood during an erection. This tissue is inside each of the two hollow chambers called the corpora cavernosa.
Our surgeon will choose the correct size implant and place the implant cylinders inside your penis. All sizes are customized to your exact body measurements.
If you have decided to have a three-piece inflatable device, a pump and valve are placed inside the scrotum. The surgeon will also implant a fluid reservoir under the abdominal wall through an internal incision.
Once the device is in place, our surgeon will sew the incisions closed. Penile implant surgery usually takes 45 minutes to an hour.
