What Are My Options To Replace Hard Undersized Saline Testicle Implants?
Q: Dr. Eppley, I had a bilateral orchiectomy March 2018 when large Torosa saline filled Implants where placed through the openings on each side of my scrotum. Unfortunately things would not heal and kept pulling the sutures pull apart. I had to have them removed last year. This December I had medium ones installed using the Inguinal method and all has healed well. I am not happy with the size however and would like something larger than the Torosa large saline filled implants. The saline filled implants are hard and you can deal the attachment tabs and fill ports. What options do you offer…?
A: I never use saline testicle implants as they are usually too small and always are too firm and don’t feel like natural testicles. (which of course are not a bag filled with water under high pressure) I use ultrasoft solid testicle implants that are available in standard sizes up to 6cms and larger with custom designs. I use a midline scrotal raphe incision which provides more direct access to the implantation site and heals in a virtual scarless manner.
