What Is The Largest Testicle Implant Size You Have Placed?
Q: Dr. Eppley, At the age of 42 I have decided to get testicular implants. As it is purely for aesthetic purposes my approach is: go big or go home. So I have decided on an implant size of 7cmx5cm. We have decided on orchiectomies for both testes which will be followed by hormonal replacement. I am writing to you due to curiosity concerning two matters: 1- the orchiectomy ( should we re-explore just adding the implants (however there will be 4 testicles then) 2- what have been the largest testicular implants you have done ( if I’m going to go big, I am going to go impressive ). Regards
A: My suggestion would be if you really want to end up at 7cm or or even 7.5cm testicle implant size, you should at least place 5.5/6.0 cms implants at the same time as the orchiectomy. This will allow for a tissue expansion effect to occur or at least prevent significant scrotal skin retraction. This would then be followed by the larger implants 3 to 4 months later. It is important to remember that the the best time to place implants, particularly at the larger ‘extreme’ sizes, is in a non-scarred issue bed.
The largest testicle implants I have done is 7.5cms.
