Penile implant surgery typically involves the placement of a prosthetic device inside the penis and scrotum. This device enables you to control when and how long you have an erection.

Our surgeons are experts in the latest minimally invasive techniques, ensuring a procedure that is effective and involves less recovery time.

Detailed information about each type of implant can help you understand which might best suit your specific situation:

  • Inflatable implants are the most popular type, allowing for more natural-feeling results.
  • Malleable (or semi-rigid) implants, are bendable, providing a simple and less complex option for some men.

Recovery from penile implant surgery usually requires short-term abstinence from sexual activity, and patients often return to full function within 4 to 6 weeks.

We will provide a detailed recovery plan tailored to promote healing and get you back to normal activities as soon as it is safe to do so.

Insurance policies vary widely, but many do cover penile implant surgery, especially if ED is a result of a medical condition.

We will assist you in understanding your coverage and can help with the necessary paperwork to make the insurance process smooth and less daunting.

Understanding what to expect before surgery can ease your concerns:

You'll meet with your surgeon to discuss the specifics of your case, determine the best type of implant for you, and you'll be provided with instructions for preparing for the procedure.

Your overall health affects surgical outcomes, so we may advise a series of lifestyle adjustments or medical evaluations prior to your surgery date.

Implementing a balanced diet and quitting smoking are just two ways you can ready your body for optimal recovery.

Open discussions with your healthcare team are key to a successful outcome.

During consultations, don't hesitate to voice any concerns or ask questions. No topic is too small if it matters to you.

The recovery phase is just as crucial as the surgery itself. At Florida Urology Partners , we're committed to ensuring your recovery is as smooth and comfortable as possible.

Our team will help you set realistic expectations and celebrate the progress you make along the way.
