Question of the day comes from H.O.D., 54 year old.
- I recently had an inflatable balloon called a prosthesis put in my penis to treat my erection problem. If works well but I have lost almost two inches in penile length. Can I re-gain this loss? The doctor didn’t warn me this could happen and both me and my wife are very disappointed.
- I am sorry you feel this way and I fully understand why. Yes, it is possible to regain a good bit of the loss with surgery to release the ligaments that hold your penis under your pubic bone. This is our MISL™ – Minimally Invasive Surgery with Laser and advances your inner penis. However this as certain drawbacks and risks so everyone may not be a good candidate. Things to consider are possible interference with the working of the prosthesis. The fact that the prosthesis usually has to be replaced in 7-8 years is also a factor since more surgery in this area could complicate things. Most importantly you may not have enough accessible inner penis to advance to regain the loss.
- It is my obligation and responsibility to evaluate you honestly. There is something else that can be easily done and is very effective in improving things – more about that in our next blog.
We that’s my story and I’m sticking to it. As always, “Honesty is the Best Policy”.
