In the absence of the man of one or both testicles for congenital causes or as a result of injury, disease, today it is possible to perform a simple operation on implantation (implantation) of one or two prosthetic testicles.

Currently artificial testicles are made of different polymeric materials.In the market of testicular prostheses, both domestic and foreign production.They are available in three basic sizes (large, medium and small) and are thick silicone gel-coated from a bioinert material.These implants in shape size and consistency almost entirely correspond to the normal testicular.They are sterilized in factory conditions and fed sterile packaging.

Before the surgery, the surgeon must estimate the size of the patient's scrotum, and choose the right size of the artificial testicle.Ideally the implant should be of a size close to the size of its own on the opposite side of the testicle.The payment is accepted, primarily, sufficient stretchability and scrotal skin on the side of implantation.Af

ter the implant has to be placed freely in the scrotum, and scrotal skin and tissue on it should not be over-stretched.Otherwise, excessive pressure on the implant scrotal tissue causes poor circulation in them, local tissue necrosis and gangrene or artificial testicle may simply fall out outwardly.Unfortunately, not always possible to choose the implant eggs absolutely the same size as his own testicle on the opposite side.Understanding the patient all these issues creates realistic expectations and determines the subsequent satisfaction with the result of the operation.

Like any other surgery, implantation of artificial testicles may be accompanied by bleeding, swelling of the surgical site (scrotum), suppurating wounds (prosthetic infection) and its poor healing, pain at the site of the operation.However, the correct selection of the implant model and size, adequate preparation of the patient for surgery and perfected technique of implanting artificial testicles reduce morbidity to the absolute minimum.

operation is performed under local or general anesthesia and usually takes about 1 hour.As a rule, we recommend that patients within 7 - 10 days after surgery to take antibiotics to prevent infection.days).Sexual life is limited for 3 - 4 weeks.
