Can Testicle Implants Be Made Heavier?

Q: Dr. Eppley, I have two inquiries, the first wanting to know which option testicle implants of side by side and wrap around allows for the largest sizes? I was also wondering if surgical steel or something could be included to make them weight more?

A: Both testicle enhancement techniques allow for the same increases in size but the wrap around technique has a much higher complication rate with not infrequent implant separation.

Metal can be incorporated into a central hollow chamber in the implant but it is important to recognize that this is an off-label implant technique.
