Can You Use Tissue Expanders For XXL Testicle Implants in a Tight Scrotum?
Q: Dr. Eppley, I am interested in XL or XXL testicular implants. I’m confident that my testes are 3 cm or smaller. But, unlike your example in the article above, I do not have any redundant skin in my scrotum. Might you use osmotic tissue expanders to provide the additional skin in order to accommodate the implants?
A: There are two methods to expand/stretch out the scrotal skin. A tissue expander can be used and then replaced with a permanent implant later probably two months layer. (Dynamic tissue expansion) Or a larger permanent implant (5.0 or 5.5cms) can be placed and then 4 to 6 months later a 6.5/7.0/7.5 implant can be used to replace itplace. (Non-Dynamic Tissue Expansion)
