Do Testicle Implants Feel Natural?
Q: Dr. Eppley, I gather from the website that you do testicular enhancement surgery.
What is the implant made of? I read the details of the configuration (like a clam shell, fixed in place around the existing testicle). Does it have a natural feel? Is it detectable by airport security.
How many days would I need to be in Indianapolis? I assume it’s an outpatient procedure.
Typically, how quickly can one expect to book an appointment?
Thanks in advance for your response.
A: Thank you for your inquiry for testicular enhancement surgery. I would first direct you to my website, www.exploreplasticsurgery.com and search under Testicle Implants where much has been written on this topic in great detail. To answer your specific questions:
1) All testicle implants are made of an ultrasoft solid silicone material.
2) Such materials have a natural feel which is why they are used.
3) Silicone is not a detectable material by x-ray metal scanners.
4) You would go home the day after surgery.
