Penile Implant Correction

Penile Implant Correction and Revision Surgery

Why Is Penile Implant Revision Surgery Necessary?

Penile implant surgery, also known as penile prosthesis placement, is a highly effective treatment for erectile dysfunction (ED) that has not responded to other conservative therapies. While the procedure is generally safe and successful, there are instances where complications or dissatisfaction may arise, necessitating penile implant correction. In such cases, seeking the expertise of a leading reconstructive urologist that has helped correct hundreds of other penis implant surgeries is essential to ensure optimal outcomes.

If you’re dissatisfied with a previous penile implant procedure, don’t suffer in silence. The skilled urologic surgeons at ARES-XL have extensive experience correcting failed penile implant surgeries, and they may be able to help you, too.

What Can a Man Expect in a Penile Implant Assessment?

When a patient experiences complications or dissatisfaction following penile implant surgery, an ARES-XL urologist will conduct a thorough assessment to determine the root cause of the issue. This evaluation may involve a physical examination, imaging studies, and detailed discussions with the patient to understand their concerns. By identifying the underlying problem accurately, our penile implant specialists can develop a personalized treatment plan for penile implant correction.

How Are Mechanical Malfunctions Resolved?

Mechanical malfunctions can occur in penile implants, leading to issues such as cylinder leaks, pump failure, or improper inflation/deflation. ARES-XL urologists are in the top 1% in terms of surgical volume and will have in-depth knowledge of the different implant models and their components. They can efficiently diagnose and address these malfunctions, whether through repairs or, if necessary, replacement of the malfunctioning parts. Their expertise ensures that the implant functions optimally, restoring erectile function and patient satisfaction.

Correcting Implant-related Penile Deformities

Deformities of the penis, such as penile curvature (Peyronie’s disease), can occur independently or in conjunction with penile implant surgery. An experienced urologist can offer comprehensive solutions for correcting these deformities while preserving erectile function. Depending on the severity of the curvature, treatments may range from non-surgical interventions, such as penile traction therapy or intralesional injections, to surgical techniques, such as plaque incision/excision or penile grafting procedures. The urologist’s expertise ensures that the patient achieves both functional and aesthetic improvements.

Optimizing Patient Satisfaction

Beyond addressing complications, experienced ARES-XL surgeons understand the importance of patient satisfaction and overall well-being. They recognize that penile implant correction involves more than just technical adjustments; it requires empathy, open communication, and collaboration with the patient. By fostering a trusting and supportive patient-physician relationship, the ARES-XL surgeons effectively address the patient’s concerns, tailor the treatment plan accordingly, and ultimately optimize satisfaction and outcomes.

What Can a Patient Expect in Long-term follow-up and support?

Penile implant correction is not a one-time event but rather an ongoing process. An experienced urologist provides long-term follow-up and support to monitor the patient’s progress, address any potential issues that may arise, and ensure the longevity of the implant. Regular check-ups and open lines of communication between the patient and urologist contribute to the patient’s confidence, overall well-being, and long-term satisfaction.
