How to use your penile implant
The AMS Ambicor™ Implant is a fluid-filled device that includes a pair of cylinders implanted in the penis and a single pump located in the scrotum. Squeezing and releasing the pump moves fluid to the cylinders, creating an erection.
Your implant in action:
- When inflated, your penis will be stiff and rigid like a natural erection which will last as long as you desire¹
- Your implant will be completely undetectable and no one will know it’s there unless you choose to tell them¹
Your implant design
The implant is a closed, fluid-filled system consisting of two components: a pair of cylinders implanted in the shaft of the penis, and a pump implanted in the scrotum. Kink resistant tubing connects the components, which are made from silicone elastomer.
B. Pump buld
Inflating your implant
- Squeeze and release the pump bulb several times. This will transfer fluid from the reservoirs located at the end of the cylinders to the main portion of the cylinders, creating an erection.
Deflating your implant
- Bend your penis to an angle of 55°–65°
- Hold it there for 6–12 seconds
- Return the penis to a horizontal position. This will return the fluid to the reservoirs and your penis will relax into a soft, flaccid and natural-looking state.

- Natural or spontaneous erections will no longer be possible
- Interventional treatment will no longer be possible
- Infection, in which case the implant may have to be removed
- Pain, which is typically associated with the healing process
- Mechanical failure of the implant
