Should I Get My Hydrocoele Removed Before Getting Custom Testicle Implants?

Q: Dr. Eppley, I’m interested in testicle enlargement purely for aesthetic reasons. I just want very large testicles.

I’d like to explore these options, and the pros and cons for each. For example, can I still go on a 6 mile run with either approach? How about ejaculation? How long do the implants last?

I also have a small hydrocele on one testicle. Do I need to get this removed beforehand?

A: In answer to your testicle implant questions:

  1. While there are two method for testicular enlargement (wrap around and side by side) I am not enthusiastic about the wrap around method due to the high rate of complications. (testicle-implant separation) The side by side method is best of one has naturally small testicles not normal size ones.
  2. Large testicle implants may interfere with running given the larger masses betwen your legs.
  3. Testicle implants do not interfere with ejaculation.
  4. A hydrocoele would need to be removed first.
