Reasons Men Seek to Have Testicular Implant Removal, Replacement or Revision

There are three common reasons that men seek to have testicular prosthesis replacement or revision.

Infection

In a small number of men, the testicular implant gets infected or erodes or protrudes through the scrotal skin. In this situation, the removal of the prosthesis is mandatory. Replacement with a new implant may be performed simultaneously or in a delayed fashion depending on the particular circumstance.

Scarring

Some men develop significant scarring (hardening of surrounding tissue) near the testicular implant and seek to have a revision and replacement of the implant in an effort to alleviate the scrotal scarring. This is a more challenging procedure, which may not always be successful as scar tissue may recur.

Testicular Size Discrepancy

Some men who had a testicular implant placed before puberty or adolescence may want to have a replacement procedure to insert a more appropriate adult-sized implant. This procedure can be performed with good success. Occasionally, an underdeveloped scrotum can make it a little challenging to place a large testicular implant, but we have had fairly good success in scrotal distention in order to place an adult-sized testicular implant.

Replacement of a small testicular implant with a larger implant can be performed in men of all ages. Recovery is typically fast and most men are able to return to usual activities in a few days.

Saline-filled Torosa silicone testicular implants are available in 4 sizes: extra small and small are pediatric sizes (2.2 cm x 3 cm and 2.5 cm x 3.5 cm); medium (2.7 cm x 4.0 cm) and large (2.9 cm x 4.5 cm) are adult sizes. Typically, we recommend a replacement from extra small and small to medium and large. For men who already have a medium size implant, replacement with a large will not provide a dramatic increase in size as they are fairly close in size: 2.7 cm vs 2.9 cm wide and 4.0 vs 4.5 cm tall.

Testicular Implant Surgery at New York Urology Specialists – What to Expect

The testicular prosthesis does not affect the ability to obtain erections, does not affect the ability to ejaculate.  For most men, the benefit of testicular implant outweighs the risks.  

Recovery after a testicular implant is fairly fast in most men.  While the cost of testicular implant surgery is a barrier for many men, we offer discounted rates for men without insurance or high deductibles.  For men with insurance, we help to get insurance to pay for testicular implant surgery.

At New York Urology Specialists we perform testicular implant insertion surgery.  We also perform testicular implant removal and replacement of testicular prosthesis if necessary.
