Erectile dysfunction is a problem more common than you may think, and the only answer is not taking a pill every time you want to have sex. A more permanent solution is a penile implant. There are two types of implants, and Dr. Wierschem can recommend which one might be right for you during an appointment at our Plano or McKinney office.

What makes ED such a common problem is the fact that the causes are quite common.

They include any or any combination of the following issues:

  • An injury, such as injury of the brain or spinal cord
  • Having diabetes
  • A heart condition
  • High blood pressure
  • High cholesterol
  • Smoking
  • Excessive alcohol consumption
  • Drug use
  • Trauma to the genital area
  • An operation, such as prostate gland removal

Of course depression and anxiety can lead to ED and then can make it even worse.

7 Benefits Of A Penile Implant

There are endless benefits to a penile implant, but we will discuss seven.

A Discreet Solution

Since the implant is completely invisible located inside the penis, no one needs to know.

High Satisfaction Rate

Before making a big decision, it is always helpful to know how satisfied others have been. There is a 90-95% satisfaction rate of men and their partners after having a penile implant.

Safe And Effective

Penile implant surgery has a very low infection rate post operation. Special antibiotics and techniques are utilized that reduce the possibility of infection.

Long Lasting Results

Most penile implants last 15 to 20 years. Understand that the implant is a medical device which can break or have problems. This can be corrected by another short procedure.

On Demand Erections

You can have an on demand erection in just 15 seconds whenever and however long you want.

Outpatient Procedure

Penile implant surgery takes about one hour to complete, and you can go home afterward. You can resume normal activities in one week, but should wait 6 weeks to have sex.

No Changes To Sexual Enjoyment

Maybe the most important benefit is there are no changes to sensation, ability to have an orgasm, or to ejaculate.
