How much does a penile Prosthesis cost? How to evaluate.


Based on my experience with my patients, I write this post to clarify this great doubt, which has probably passed through the minds of many men facing erection problems. First of all, I must say that this is a fairly common question and it is a good idea learn more about it. After all, what should you consider when researching penile prosthesis prices? Here are the tips I have prepared for you. 


Would you like to know if you need a penile implant?

If the erection is not good but you still do not have an answer to this question, my suggestion is to start here. Let's worry about one thing at a time, the first step is to get an accurate diagnosis. For my patients I always recommend a functional examination of the penis, with artificially induced erection and high definition ultrasound. With this, I can already know immediately if there is need for the implant or if it is still possible to test the use of medicines. The most important thing is to make sure your brother is ready when you need him.

Do you have any personal preference?

Without deviating from the purpose of this blog post, I must say that the type of implant influences rather the total cost of the surgery. The most used are malleable and inflatable prostheses (which have a higher cost, on average six times more expensive). Both serve very well to my patients.

However, during the consultation I always try to understand the patient's lifestyle and recommend the best option for each case. For example, to obtain greater firmness with the prosthesis it is necessary to study the anatomy of each patient: there is an ideal relation between the length and caliber of the penis. In other cases, the opinion of the sexual partner also counts a lot. All of these details may interfere with medical recommendation and final choice. 



What do you expect with the result?

This is another topic that you should consider when choosing the specialist who will take care of you. Each professional uses the technique of their own choice, as well as different equipment and materials.

For example, in my patients I always use the Egydio Technique (the technique that I developed) to recover size and caliber before implanting the prosthesis. In medicine we call this as a penile reconstruction procedure, which will be responsible for expanding the size and caliber of the penis (as far as possible from the vessels, nerves and urethra).

So if you are considering a prosthetic surgery be sure to consider the topics I mentioned above. All these details can interfere in the cost and satisfaction with the final result, after all we are dealing with a very important subject: the health of your penis and your happiness.
