Brief Answer:
Some general information on a penile implant, pls ask more if required sir

Detailed Answer:
Hello sir and welcome.

Thank you for writing to us.

I have gone through your query with diligence and would like you to know that I am here to help. As your question is very general, I shall try and touch all the aspects of a penile implant.

A penile implant is not for everyone, unlike the general consensus a penile implant will not be effective in certain conditions like in those individuals who have an infection that is causing the erectile dysfunction (ED); in those individuals who have situational ED (e.g. argument with partner, disinterest in partner, conflict, etc.); and in those who have injuries, wounds, lesions, etc. on the penis skin.

A penile implant however is indicated in those individuals who have either not achieved required/satisfying results with other methods (e.g. medication, exercise, etc.); or in those individuals who cannot avail those methods.

There are 3 different types of implants and your doctor will choose the type most suited to your requirement depending on your individual case sir.

I hope I have explained things in a manner best understood by you. Please do not hesitate to write back to me for any further clarifications, I am always here to help.

Best wishes.
