Your journey begins with understanding your specific type of penile implant. Typically, there are two main types: the inflatable implant and the malleable implant. Each has its unique features and operating instructions. We will guide you through the essential aspects of each, ensuring that you can manage your implant with ease.

We take great care to ensure that every patient understands their implant's functionality. The nuances of operating your implant should be second nature, like any other daily task, so that you can live your life freely and with confidence.

For those with an inflatable implant, operation entails a few straightforward steps to achieve and reverse an erection. It generally involves inflating and deflating the device using a small pump located in the scrotum. While this may seem daunting at first, with a bit of practice, it becomes a simple process.

It's important to familiarize yourself with the inflation mechanism gentle but firm squeezes on the pump fill the cylinders within the penis, resulting in an erection. Reversing the process is just as simple, usually involving pressing a release valve. We'll help you practice this in a comfortable environment, ensuring you can perform these actions discreetly and effectively.

If you have a malleable implant, your experience will differ slightly from that of the inflatable option. Malleable implants are designed to mimic a natural erection and are manually positioned. They are simple by design and do not require pumping or deflating.

Operation involves bending the penis into the desired position for sexual activity and then bending it back towards the body when not in use. Our guide will offer detailed instructions on how to manage this with care to ensure functionality and comfort.

It is absolutely normal to experience a degree of apprehension when first operating your penile implant. However, our clinic is devoted to ensuring that you feel assured and comfortable at every step.
