Testicular Implants: The Ultimate Solution for a Balanced Look
Testicular implant procedures are personal decisions influenced by physical and emotional factors. Such a procedure can be essential in healing if one has lost one or both testicles due to cancer or trauma.
At our practice in Beverly Hills testicular implants can also provide a more natural look and feel to those born without one or both testicles, boosting their self-confidence. It is recommended to consult with Dr. James Elist, a renowned urologist in Beverly Hills, to understand the potential benefits of testicle implants and determine whether the procedure is appropriate based on personalized treatment plans.
Where Comfort Meets Confidence
A testicular implant is a prosthetic device designed to occupy the space left by a missing testicle in the scrotum. These implants are created to closely resemble the size, weight, and texture of natural testicles, with various sizes available (extra small, small, medium, large, and extra-large) to meet the needs of individuals of different ages and sizes. By mimicking the appearance and feel of natural testicles, these implants provide a lifelike appearance and offer a comfortable fit for the wearer.
Get Back to Feeling Like Yourself Again
Testicular implants can be a valuable option for men who have lost one or both testicles due to injury or illness or those born without a testicle. The implants offer a way to improve the appearance of the scrotum and provide a more natural look and feel, which can boost self-esteem and help reduce feelings of self-consciousness. While the implant does not function like a real testicle, it can help calm psychological fears and offer a sense of wholeness and completeness to those who have lost a testicle. With the right care and attention, a testicular implant can be a valuable tool in healing, helping men feel more confident and secure in their bodies.

Insertion of Testicular Prosthesis or Testicle Implants
After a unilateral or bilateral testicular removal and/or for cosmetic purposes, Dr. Elist places testicle implants (artificial testis) in the scrotum of a patient. The aesthetic results can positively affect the psychological well-being and self-confidence of men who have had a testicular removal for different reasons (e.g., undescended testis, testicular cancer, etc.).
Furthermore, Dr. Elist offers unilateral or bilateral testicle implant placement for testicular and scrotal enhancement. The Silicone Testicular Implants consist of a medical-grade soft silicone material and are designed to enhance or replace the size of an existing testicle. Silicone Testicular Implants serve to enhance the testicular size or to adjust the size of one testicle to match the opposite side.
Typical patients for Silicone Testicular Implants desire an overall aesthetic enhancement of their scrotum, suffer from asymmetric testicular size, or have undergone an orchiectomy with prosthesis placement and asymmetrical results. (Testicular Enlargement)

A detailed list of potential complications, risks, benefits, and alternatives, including no surgery, will be discussed in advance.
Undergoing a testicular implant procedure can result in a significant improvement to the appearance and feel of the scrotum. Once the swelling and bruising subside, patients will notice a visible change in the affected area. This can provide great relief and comfort, particularly for those who have lost a testicle due to illness or injury. With a more natural look and feel, patients can often feel more confident and less self-conscious about their bodies, which can positively impact their overall sense of well-being. For many men, a testicular implant can be an important step towards feeling whole and complete.
Rest and Restore Your Confidence
Dr. Elist and his team will provide comprehensive instructions for post-operative care and limitations before you leave the surgery. Since Dr. Elist uses a "biological dressing," there are no bandages to remove, and you can shower daily. You may need to take antibiotics for three days after surgery.
Swelling, discomfort, bruising, and tenderness are common for a few days after the testicular implant surgery. Pain can be managed with prescription or over-the-counter medications such as Tylenol. Any persistent or worsening pain should be reported to Dr. Elist, as it could indicate something unusual is happening. The swelling and tenderness will subside over time, and the final "look" of the implant will be achieved after two to three weeks. Patients can typically return to work and other physical activities within three days of surgery. Dr. Elist provides a more accurate timeline based on age, health, job nature, and other factors.
He can also advise on when it is safe to resume strenuous exercises such as lifting weights and riding a bike. Sexual activity can usually be resumed about two weeks after surgery, with the placement of the implant not interfering with erection or ejaculation. Complications after testicular implant surgery are rare when performed by an experienced expert like Dr. Elist. However, patients with concerns about the safety of testicular implants should discuss them with Dr. Elist during consultation.
Testicular implants are typically made from solid silicone or silicone rubber casing filled with saline, a sterile saltwater solution. Solid silicone implants, also known as "soft gel" devices, do not leak over time. In the case of a rupture or leak in the silicone-saline devices, there is no harm to the patient's health, as the body safely absorbs the saline.
While testicular prosthesis implantation surgery can be a life-changing procedure for many patients, it does come with potential risks and complications. These may include pain, infection, hematoma, dissatisfaction with appearance, scarring, shifting of the prosthesis, rupture or leaking of the implant, and, in rare cases, the prosthesis being expelled from the body due to infection. However, with proper pre-operative assessment and post-operative care, many of these complications can be avoided or managed effectively. It is important to discuss any concerns with your surgeon and follow their instructions closely to ensure the best possible outcome.
