What Type of Penile Implant Would Be the Best for Me?
If you’ve decided to go for a penile implant, you’ve made the right choice. If you’ve exhausted every other method with no results, a good penile implant can be life changing. However, before you decide to get an implant, you have to understand the various types available on the market and weigh up the benefits and disadvantages of each before you make a decision. Here’s a rundown of various penile implants so you can make the right choice.
Non-inflatable penile implants are the simplest type of penile implants on the market. Non-inflatable penile implants, often referred to as semi rigid rod implants, consist of a rod that is inserted directly into the penis. All you have to do is push the penis down from your abdomen or up from your scrotum before intercourse. Semi rigid implants are a bit similar to a gooseneck lamp that you can adjust and move in various directions.
One of the biggest advantages of non-inflatable implants is that they are easy to use and more importantly, very cheap. The procedure is also less invasive. However, the biggest issue with these types of implants is that the penis stays constantly firm, which can be an issue at times.
Two Piece Inflatable Implants
Two-piece inflatable penile implants consist of two cylinders that are inserted into the penis and attached to a pump that is installed in the scrotum. By gently pressing on the pump in the scrotum, you’ll be sending fluid into the cylinders allowing you to achieve an erection.
One of the biggest benefits of two-piece inflatable implants over semi rigid ones is that you’ll have much more control over your erections. However, these types of implants won’t give you the most rigid erection that you can have.
Three Piece Inflatable Implants
Three-piece inflatable implants are in many ways very similar to two-piece inflatable implants with the exception that a reservoir attached to the pump containing a sterile solution will be implanted into the abdomen. This solution will be sent directly into the cylinders to create an erection.
The best thing about these implants is that they create the most authentic looking and satisfying erections. They also act very fast, if you don’t want to lose spontaneity during intercourse. The only issue is that these types of implants are a bit more expensive and the procedure a bit more invasive.
Now that you know the difference between different penile implant types, you’ll be able to choose which model would work the best according to your needs.
