Mention erectile dysfunction in a room full of guys you’ve known for decades and you’re likely to be met with dead silence. Even though 1 out of every 2 men over the age of 40 suffers from ED,1no guy ever wants to talk about it.
Prescription pills are usually the first course of action for treating erectile dysfunction, but often they aren’t an instant fix. When pills aren’t an option, a penile implant can offer real hope. A penile implant (or penile prosthesis) is a medical device that is custom-fit and surgically placed into a penis to produce a natural-looking and natural-feeling erection.
Reasons to Consider a Penile Implant
- Patient Satisfaction Rates: Studies indicate 93.8% of men were moderately or completely satisfied with their penile prosthesis choice, far outpacing satisfaction levels for Viagra (51.6%) or injection therapy (40.9%). 2
- A Discrete Treatment for ED: A penile prosthesis is not noticeable when your penis is flaccid. Your partner won’t be able to tell you’ve had an implant to treat your ED unless you tell them.
- Minimal Recovery Time: Every man is different, but a typical recovery time after a prosthesis implant procedure is four to six weeks. After you’ve fully recovered, you can begin enjoying sex once more.
- Insurance Coverage: Penile implants are prescribed by a physician and are generally covered by most insurance plans, including Medicare.
Penile Implants from Coloplast
After a legacy of decades specializing in men’s sexual health, Coloplast is the trusted leader for erectile dysfunction solutions. The Coloplast Titan® penile prosthesis with reservoir is the only implant of its kind approved by the FDA for submuscular placement, which can lessen the risk of serious complications during and after surgery for some patients.
There are two basic types of penile implants that Coloplast offers:
The Titan® Touch inflatable penile prosthesis
The Genesis® Malleable penile prosthesis
Both implant types are custom fit to your body and allow you to have a satisfactory erection for sexual intercourse. Your sensitivity and ability to ejaculate are not affected. The primary difference between the two penile prosthesis types is that flexible rod implants (the Genesis) produce a permanently firm penis, while the inflatable prosthesis (the Titan) produce a more natural erection.
