Three-Piece Inflatable Penile Implant
How it works
The device consists of a pair of cylinders implanted in the penis, a pump implanted in the scrotum, and a fluid reservoir implanted in the lower abdomen.
Squeezing and releasing the pump moves fluid to the cylinders, creating an erection. To deflate the device, press the deactivation button on the pump.
Every patient’s experience is different, and you should talk to your urologist about what to expect. You may experience pain and soreness at the surgical site. Typically, it takes a few days to return to a regular daily routine of light activity. The full healing time before using your device is usually about 6 weeks. As with any medical procedure, complications can occur. Side effects include, but are not limited to:3
- Natural or spontaneous erections as well as other interventional treatment options will become impossible
- Infection, in which case the implant may have to be removed
- Penis may become shorter, curved, or scarred
- Pain (typically associated with the healing process)
- Mechanical failure of the implant
