Penile implants, also known as penile prostheses, are medical devices implanted into the penis to help men with erectile dysfunction (ED) achieve an erection. There are two main types to consider - inflatable penile implants and malleable (or semi-rigid) penile implants. Both have their perks and quirks, and we're going to delve into the nitty-gritty of each type. So, sit back, relax, and let the learning begin!

Inflatable penile implants are like the sports cars of penile prosthetics sleek, sophisticated, and with a touch of innovation! These implants come with a hidden pump that lets you inflate the device for an erection and deflate it after. The majority of these systems are three-piece devices consisting of a fluid reservoir, a pump, and a pair of cylinders. Some say it gives the most natural look and feel of an erection.

But let's be real, technology can seem daunting at first. That's where our team at Urology Surgery Center leap into action, providing all the support you need to understand and operate your new gear.

  • More natural appearance in the flaccid state
  • Firmer and more natural-seeming erection when inflated
  • The deflated implant is hardly noticeable, which may be a confidence booster

Inflatable penile implants are remarkable feats of engineering, but they also require a bit of dexterity to operate the pump hidden within the scrotum. For some folks, this may be tricky, especially if you have certain medical conditions that impede hand strength or dexterity. Additionally, there's a wee bit more complexity in the design, which can, although rarely, mean more potential for mechanical issues down the line.

And here's a reassuring fact: our top-notch medical team at Urology Surgery Center is always on standby to guide you through any bumps in the road. So, dare I say, don't let the fear of complexity hold you back. Remember, help is just a call away at (615) 250-9200 .

It's as simple as it sounds, with less moving parts involved!

It's a "set it and forget it" kind of solution, which for many is a delightful proposition. Want to learn more about the nuts and bolts?

Malleable implants are reliable, but here's the tea they might not provide the most inconspicuous flaccid appearance compared to the inflatable chaps. There's a bit more of a permanent bulge, which might be a concern for some. Plus, while they're robust, the erection they provide may not be as "up to the minute" as an inflatable one.
