There has been a very high percentage of men who have also developed infections with the overlays and I have personally dealt with two men on my boards over the years that had testicular damage reducing sperm counts and hormone production after the damage was repaired. In addition to these known risks, there are unanswered questions about silicone implants, which, as previously discussed, mostly apply to silicone gel-filled breast implants. As a natural reaction to any device placed in the body, scar tissue may form around a testicular implant. The most common reason for implant removal was extrusion of the implant. This act also mandated that manufacturers of high risk devices, such as the gel filled silicone device, keep records of the identity and address of patients implanted with these devices. Remember to be patient, and try not to rush your recovery time.
Just as there are a wide array of reasons a guy would use a penis pump to enlarge his penis, there are equally as many reasons why a guy would use a ball pump to enlarge his testicles and scrotal sac.
Personally, I use a ball pump in conjunction with my penis pump for two reasons:. Whatever your reasons may be, testicle pumping is an enjoyable exercise and has a host of benefits when done correctly. Before any enlargement routine, understanding the dynamics of what is taking place within your body is key.
Enlarging your testicles and scrotal sac is an easy process, much easier than enlarging the penis. However, great care must be taken in order not to cause any serious damage to the testicles both during and after your sessions. The scrotal sac is essentially a bag of skin that holds the testicles and seminal vessels.
The testicles hang free inside the scrotal sac, but they are not held up by the scrotum. They are supported by tissue that acts to hold them in place, and they hang somewhat freely within the sac.
This tissue is highly flexible and reacts to temperature variations by contracting or expanding. This lifts the testicles closer or farther away from the body. The scrotal sac reacts to these temperature changes as well think about how your sac contracts in a cold shower or expands on a hot summer day.
Along with these tissues, blood vessels and seminal vesicles reside in the scrotal sac. In conjunction with the testicles, these are the areas ball pumping targets. The tissues within the scrotal sac will react better to the process when they are in the right state or condition, so ensuring the conditions are conducive to enlargement is very important.
Temperature is a key element in getting proper expansion during your pumping session. Just as in penis pumping, testicle pumping at warm temps causes tissue within the scrotal sac to soften and elongate easier. Pumping also enlarges the scrotal sac itself, which makes more length for the testicles to drop into; and it tends to have some permanent enlarging effects on the testicles themselves. For comfort, you will need a much wider cylinder or a special-purpose one, such as a 2-stage cylinder.
I highly recommend the LongJohnny cylinder as it affords the user an easy to use mechanism with a high level of comfort. These contraindications include infection and untreated cancer. There are three types of implants currently available. However, only one, the Coloplast saline-filled testicular implant has received approval from the FDA for implantation as a testicular prosthesis.
The Coloplast formally Mentor Saline Filled Testicular Prosthesis This device is about the same weight, shape and softness of a normal testicle. It comes in four sizes — extra-small, small, medium and large. The implant is made of a molded silicone elastomer shell that is approximately 0.
It is not visible on x-ray. The device is filled with saline at the time of surgery and just prior to implantation. It includes a self-sealing injection site at one end that allows for filling with a sterile saline solution. On the opposite end of the implant is a silicone elastomer tab that enables suturing and securing the implant into a set position, if this is desired. This device is about the same weight, shape and softness of a normal testicle. It has not received FDA approval.
It is only available in certain countries outside the US. The SSTP is made in five sizes: Extra-small, Small, Medium, Large, Extra-large. The device consists of a molded silicone elastomer shell,ranging from 0.
A silicone elastomer Dacron reinforced patch for suturingthe prosthesis in position is located at one end of the device shell. In this nationwide study, 60 patients were enrolled in 10 study sites were implanted with a Mentor Soft-Solid Testicular Prosthesis and followed for 1 year. The Coloplast Soft-Solid Testicular Prosthesis is indicated for cosmetic testicular replacement when the natural testicle has been removed.
The weight, shape, and texture of Mentor soft-solid testicular implants is designed to approximate normal testicles, providing patients with a more natural looking and feeling scrotum. They are intended to aid in the restoration of a normal physical appearance for male patients of all ages with one or more missing testicles. All materials used are medical grade and proven to be biocompatible is safe and tolerated well by the body.
The silicone envelope membrane is made of a compound of dimethyl polysiloxane and dimethyl fluoro silicone copolymer. The silicone envelope is filled with an elastomer mixture of reinforced dimethyl methylvinyl siloxanes with reinforced dimethyl methylhydrogen siloxanes.
Applied Silicone Corporation manufactures the material. Testicular surgery requires an incision. As with any surgical procedure, there are risks such as infection, delayed wound healing, fluid collection, hematoma formation a collection of blood inside the body in and around where the incision is made , bleeding and possible reactions from anesthesia. These complications are uncommon.
Small areas of fluid collection and small hematomas will be absorbed by your body. In addition to these known risks, there are unanswered questions about silicone implants, which, as previously discussed, mostly apply to silicone gel-filled breast implants.
Certain risks that may be associated with silicone gel will not occur with the newer devices including the saline-filled, soft-solid or silicone elastomer devices. However, since all types of currently available implants have a silicone rubber envelope, they may be associated with certain specific risks and complications.
There are several different accepted surgical approaches that can be used to insert your testicular implant. I will discuss with you the method that would be most appropriate choice for your individual case.
It is important to know that implantation of a testicular prosthesis may not be a one-time procedure. Any complications from your surgery may require further procedures. For any elective surgery you should be in the best of health. It is important to let my office know if you have any other health problems which might necessitate consultation with an internist prior to your surgery. Also you should avoid aspirin and aspirin like products e. The week before surgery you will be asked to report to the Ambulatory Surgical Center at which time a medical history, complete examination and necessary laboratory tests will be performed by staff of the Surgery Center.
Testicular implant surgery is usually performed on an outpatient basis no overnight stay. However, for those patients with significant underlying medical problems, a brief hospital stay might be required.
I will discuss with you at your consultation which approach is best suited for you. On the day of your surgery, you will be asked to report to the Ambulatory Surgical Center at least one hour before surgery and must be accompanied by someone capable of driving you home. You will not have eaten nor drunk anything since dinner the night before.
I will meet with you during the hour prior to surgery to examine you and answer any questions. Your procedure will usually take between 30 and 60 minutes.
The procedure is performed under either a local, general or a spinal anesthetic, all of which are extremely safe and effective. These options will be discussed in detail with you by the anesthesiologist prior to the procedure. You will usually remain in the recovery room for a minimum of one hour and as long as you need until you feel comfortably alert for travel. Most patients experience some discomfort during the first 24 to 48 hours after your procedure.
I will prescribe painkillers to take if needed. Most likely you will feel fatigued and your scrotum will be swollen, tender and sensitive to physical contact for some time.
However, your ability to urinate should not be affected. Remember to be patient, and try not to rush your recovery time. Should any problems occur after your procedure, immediately contact me.
This is especially important if you have a high temperature, or if your scrotum becomes excessively swollen enlarged beyond its normal size , painful, red or inflamed. Please click here for specific postoperative instructions. You should know that testicular implants, like other medical implant devices, should not be considered lifetime devices. There is the chance, though minimal, that the body could have an adverse reaction to the implant, or that the implant may either rupture or leak or both.
These will require the implant to be removed. The long-term rates of deflation when the saline-filled is utilized and re-surgery are currently not known; however, long term studies are presently underway to access these issues. In addition, infection or extrusion when the implant shifts and presses out through the skin may also require additional surgery.
The following is an overview of potential side effects of implantation of a testicular prosthesis. Although rare, you should be aware that these adverse effects can occur. These will be discussed with you in detail at the time of your initial consultation.
The more biocompatible a material is, the less the body will reject it.
