No, a penis implant will not result in a permanent or semi-permanent erection. The implant is designed to help men achieve and maintain an erection, but it does not cause the erection to last for an extended period of time. The man will still need to use his own stimulation to achieve an erection.
There are two main types of penile implants: inflatable and semi-rigid. Inflatable implants have two cylinders that are inserted into the penis. The cylinders are connected to a pump that is located in the scrotum. When the man pumps the device, the cylinders fill with fluid, which causes the penis to become erect. Semi-rigid implants are made of a solid material that is inserted into the penis. The implant does not change shape, so it provides a constant level of rigidity.
Both types of penile implants are effective in helping men achieve and maintain erections. The type of implant that is right for a man will depend on his individual needs and preferences.
A penis implant (penile prosthesis) is designed to provide functional and controlled erections for sexual activity, but it does not result in a permanent or semi-permanent erection. The two main types of penis implants are inflatable implants and malleable implants, each with its own mechanism for achieving and maintaining an erection:
1. Inflatable Implants: Inflatable implants consist of two cylinders that are surgically placed within the erectile chambers of the penis, a reservoir filled with sterile fluid (usually saline), and a pump located in the scrotum. When you want to achieve an erection, you manually activate the pump to transfer fluid from the reservoir to the cylinders, causing the penis to become erect. After sexual activity, you can deflate the implant to return the penis to a flaccid state.
2. Malleable Implants: Malleable implants are semi-rigid rods that are surgically implanted within the penis. The rods are bendable, allowing you to manually position the penis for sexual activity. When not in use, the rods keep the penis in a semi-rigid state, which can be adjusted as needed.
In both cases, the implants do not create an erection without manual manipulation or activation. The ability to control the erection is a crucial aspect of penile implants, allowing individuals to have control over their sexual function and engage in sexual activities when desired.
