Three-Piece Inflatable Penile Implant
This implant puts you back in control of your erectile function. Once activated, the device allows you to maintain an erection for as long as you want. It was designed to feel natural and can be activated spontaneously, so you can have sex when the mood strikes.1
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.
The implant procedure is typically done on a short hospital stay basis, with patients generally checking in the morning of the procedure and getting discharged within 48 hours.2 The surgery is performed under anesthesia. Your urologist can tell you more about the surgical procedure.
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
