Technological advancements of our modern times have certainly brought us many innovative solutions for untreatable medical conditions. Erectile dysfunction is one of these conditions with gaining attention by the pharmaceutical and medical device industry. In fact, currently more than half of the male population between the ages of 40 and 70 years are affected by erectile dysfunction. The world of men suffering from this condition was first revolutionized in 1998 when Viagra was approved by the FDA for the treatment of erectile dysfunction. Since then, other medications such as Cialis and co. have joined the club and are helping men to achieve stronger erections. Furthermore, and for more severe cases, injectable drugs and suppositories were introduced later which tend to be effective when oral medication do not help anymore. But what if all the available medication including tables, pills, and injections do not work anymore? In cases where the erectile problem is non-responsive to all available medication, penile prosthesis surgery remains the last choice and the gold standard solution, but penile shrinkage after the surgery has been a big side effect reported so far for this solution.
Being the last resort of action for treatment of refractory erectile dysfunction, penile prostheses (malleable and inflatable) have been shown to be very effective and with high patient satisfaction rates (70-87%). One major concern and reason for patient dissatisfaction after penile prosthesis surgery remains the shrinkage of the penis. In fact, over 70% of men who have undergone penile prosthesis surgery report to feel as if the penis has shrunken in size. Objective measurements on the other hand show a measurable shrinkage in penis length and girth in all men (100%) with a penile prosthesis for erectile dysfunction; this loss of length has been reported to be more than 1 inch in the majority of cases.
When considering these losses, many men might be hesitant towards penile prosthesis surgery while concerned about shrinkage in penile size. So what are the options?
In the same manner in which the penile prostheses have revolutionized the world of men with erectile dysfunction, a new surgical approach using a subcutaneous soft silicone implant is now changing the world of men with a penile prosthesis and shrunken penis. Invented and patented in the United States by Dr. James Elist, the subcutaneous soft silicone implant has been shown to not only give men back the lost penis length and girth after penile prosthesis surgery, but it also has the invaluable advantage of giving men additional length and girth; simply said, penile prosthesis in combination with Dr. Elist’s subcutaneous soft silicone implant is the only unique solution for men who desire a restoration of their lost erectile functioning while opting to keep their current size and gain additional penile length and girth.
Our recently published article in the International Journal of Impotence Research (Read the Article) presents our initial cases with patients who suffered from erectile dysfunction, experienced penile shrinkage after prosthesis surgery, and the amazing gains they were able to achieve with Dr. Elist’s subcutaneous soft silicone implant. These men not only regained any lost penile size (What is the average penis size?), but also gained an additional length of 1.2 inches and additional girth of 1.5 inches. Since first published, our results have been well perceived by men familiar with the above discussed problem, and many men have already profited from our unique and extraordinary technique.
