What Are My Options When A Standard Testicle Implant Is Not Big Enough?

Q: Dr. Eppley, I have had a testicular implant since 13. There is a large size disparity between my real testicle and the implant. 

I am about to have a urologist insert a larger implant. In researching the Coloplast, the largest size is not even close. 

What are my options?

A: The beet approach would be to have a custom ultrasoft silicone testicle implant made that matches the other side in size. Given your statement of ‘the largest size is not even close’ would indicate the need for a custom implant design approach. Since the largest saline testicle implant is 4.5ms and the largest silicone testicle implant is 5.0cms, the need for a custom testicle implant design is obvious.
