Penile implant surgery refers to the penile prosthesis or implants that are inserted into the penis in men so as to facilitate their erections during sexual intercourses. These are more or less artificial penis, which enhance the muscular contractions of the organ and the sexual activity too. Thus it makes it quite obvious that a surgical approach will be necessary. Implants can be semi-rigid or inflatable and the choices purely of the patient willing to undergo the surgery. This is the last resort when all methods to correct erectile dysfunctions in men fail. The methods usually adopted are medications, regular exercises, yoga. Penile implant comes into action when all these methods fail to correct ED.
The procedure can be done both under general as well as local anesthesia. It is a procedure of the outpatient department and the patient can be given a discharge on the same day. There are two types of implants available namely semi rigid and the inflatable ones. Irrespective of the type of the implant, it consists of three major components. These are:
During sexual intercourse, blood supply to the penis is the highest which is just enough to cause its erection. However during cases of ED, The muscles fail to contract due to various reasons. It is at this time when the reservoir is triggered and sends off the saliva and the fluid to the pump which is present in the scrotal sac. This is then passed on to the cylinders present in the corpora cavernosa of the penis and promotes erection. Once the intercourse has been completed, the pump sucks in the fluid from the penis and sends it back to the reservoir where it is preserved for the next time. Thus the cycle continues.
You can resume your sexual activities after a period of 5 to 6 weeks. However you are advised to go easy on your partner for the initial 1 to 2 times. It is also advisable to not force masturbation until 6 weeks of the surgery have been completed.
The success rate for a penile implant surgery for the first year is approximately 80 percent. It may reduce to 60 percent in the next five successive years owing to the wearing away of the implant parts occurring as a result of repeated use.
The penile implant surgery would cost you around a lakh INR if you opt for the Indian surgeons, be it anywhere across the country. This amount is roughly around 60 percent lesser as compared to what you are required to pay in the US/UK/Australia.

• Will I be able to urinate well after the implant?
Yes sure. The implant has got nothing to do with your urinary system, to be specific the urethra. You will be able to urinate as and when you need to, the urinary urges will also be all normal too.
• Will the implant cause irritation during penetration?
No, not at all. The implant is placed in order to help you with the penetration and not cause any piching/irritation to your partner or you.
• Can the implant be removed whenever I want?
This will be a one time task. You cannot remove and insert the implant as and when you need. Since this is a surgical procedure, you are opened once to insert the implant and once to remove it. Removal of the implant will be advised when it is seen to get displaced or cause any other pathology/trauma to the other adjacent structures.
