When Is It Time To Consider A Penile Implant For Erectile Dysfunction

When is it time to consider a penile implant for erectile dysfunction? If you are tired of taking medications and waiting for them to work, frustrated that they limit your spontaneity, and you want something that is a more permanent solution to erectile dysfunction, you may have your answer. It might be now.

First Look At Your Options

There are basically two types of penile implants: bendable and inflatable.

  • With bendable implants, flexible silicone rods are placed into the erection chambers of the penis. When you want an erection, you manually adjust the rods.
  • With an inflatable implant, the silicone rods are implanted into the erection chambers which you inflate using a pump hidden in your scrotum.

Then Look At The Benefits

Effective And Discreet

The satisfaction rate of men with a penile implant and their partners is between 90 to 95%. In addition, 80 to 90% of those who had a penile implant have no regrets and would have the surgery again.

When you are ready, your erection will be ready in 15 seconds. You can discreetly create your erection when you choose.

You Are In Control

Just like a natural erection, you don’t have to excuse yourself, make plans to have an erection, or wait. As an added bonus, it lasts as long as you want.

Penile Implants Are Safe

The post-surgical infection rate of a penile implant is extremely low at approximately 1%. Of course, it is essential to choose an experienced urologist like Louisiana Healthcare Associates to reduce the chances of any complications.

You Can Once Again Be Spontaneous

Your sex life can be fun again without waiting or planning.

Natural Sensations

You still will have natural-looking erections and full sensation plus the ability to climax. Your partner will not know you have an implant unless you tell them.
