Surgical Methods for Impotence Produce Permanent Results

Aug 2, 2008
Primary impotence can drive some men to the surgeon. In these rare cases of primary impotence, where there is a complete inability to have an erection long enough for sexual intercourse or to achieve an orgasm or ejaculation, surgical treatment is a last resort treatment for impotence. Although for many men, the chance to be able to enjoy again the intimacy that sexual intercourse offers is enough to persuade the men to undergo surgery.

Surgery for impotence is invasive and requires use of an anesthetic. There are several types of surgical treatments for impotency. When surgery is chosen as a treatment, the results are more permanent that the other treatments. It is important to try other treatment methods before choosing surgery since surgery will have permanently lasting effects that may include scarring or change in appearance of the penis and scrotum.

During penile implant surgery, a man will have an implant inserted into his penis. The permanent implant may be rigid or flexible meaning that either the implant may present a permanent erection or the prosthesis can be inflatable, which enables the man to gain an erection when desired. Either penile implant gives a man an erection; further, the man is able to use the erection for sexual intercourse. The implant procedure is irreversible and must be considered carefully.

With a rigid penile implant, the penis will be in a permanent erect state. The permanent erection can be detected through some types of clothing particularly clothing that is tight. The implant erection may also be seen through soft materials, stretchy materials or thin fabrics. The permanent implant may be curved for greater discretion beneath clothing since this curved implant allows the erection to be hidden beneath clothing better than the straight implant version.

When an inflatable implant is inserted, the penis can be erect or soft according to the man's wishes. The pump device is implanted in the scrotum where it can be activated discreetly. When the penis is not pumped, it will return to a soft state. The inflatable penile implant allows a man to have the appearance of gaining an erection naturally.

Vascular re-constructive surgery is an option that is chosen by young men with arterial blockage in the penis. Only the veins or arteries in the penis are blocked and in this situation, an erection is difficult to maintain to the point of ejaculation. The risks of this surgery include impotency caused by resulting scar tissue or damage to the penile nerves. Interested candidates for this surgery should look at the success rate and talk to former patients when choosing a surgeon for this or any other surgery treatment for impotence.

These types of surgical treatments for impotence make it possible for even a man with primary impotence to have sex again. Since most men think of being sexually active as an important part of a full and happy lifestyle, the ability to have an erection and engage in sexual intercourse can bring new life to a man who has suffered from primary impotence.

All options and risks must be weighed before surgery is considered seriously as a solution for impotence. In the presence of primary impotence, where it is impossible to have sex, many men find satisfaction from penile implant surgery or find it possible to return to a sexually active lifestyle from the successful results of vascular re-constructive surgery.
