Penile prosthesis implantation is a surgery that involves inserting a device into the penis to help men achieve and maintain an erection. The surgery does not affect the natural lubrication or arousal response of the penis. However, some men may experience a decrease in sensation in the penis after surgery. This is usually temporary and improves over time.
If you are considering penile prosthesis implantation, it is important to talk to your doctor about the risks and benefits of the surgery. You should also discuss your concerns about the potential impact on your natural lubrication or arousal response.
Here are some additional information about penile prosthesis implantation:
- There are two main types of penile prostheses: inflatable and semi-rigid. Inflatable prostheses have two chambers that can be filled with fluid to create an erection. Semi-rigid prostheses are always erect, but they can be bent to different positions.
- Penile prosthesis implantation is a major surgery and it is important to choose a qualified surgeon. The surgery is usually performed under general anesthesia and takes about 1-2 hours.
- There are some risks associated with penile prosthesis implantation, including infection, bleeding, and damage to the nerves in the penis. However, the risks are generally low.
- Most men who have penile prosthesis implantation are satisfied with the results. The surgery can help men regain their ability to have sex and improve their quality of life.
