Suffering from ED or Erectile Dysfunction has become quite common among men. This issue creates many problems in their sexual activity, and men often feel helpless while they face erectile dysfunction. However, with the advanced treatment process, experts suggest penile implant treatment to help men get rid of erectile dysfunction. 

How does penile implant treatment work?

The penile implant treatment comes with two cylinders. There is a reservoir & a pump, and these are surgically implanted inside the body. Next, doctors will insert the two cylinders inside the penis, and these are connected by a tube to a different fluid reservoir. 

The reservoir is placed under the muscles of the lower abdomen, and the pump is placed under the slack skin of the scrotal sac in the middle of the testicles. Men need to press the pump to expand the prosthesis. These pumps will not create any pressure on the testicles, and pumps transfer the liquid from the reservoir to the cylinders.  

What is the success rate of penile implantation?

Men are confused regarding the success rate of penile implantation. Well, research shows that almost 90 percent to 95 percent of inflatable prosthesis operations are positive. This implant procedure is suitable for intercourse.  

It has also been noticed that the satisfaction rate is noticeably high, and almost 80 to 90 percent of men are satisfied with this treatment and its outcome. 

Like other countries, in India too, this penile implantation surgery has become quite popular. The overall satisfaction rate among the patients in India is 84.62%, as per authentic research.

The risk of penile implant surgery consists of the following risk factors.

  • Penile implantation can lead to some infections. Especially diabetic patients are more prone to getting infected.
  • Penile implant designs are made of advanced technologies. However, some have complained of malfunctioning penile implants.
