Some males do not have testes due to birth defect or may be removed surgically due to trauma or illness. Testicular implant surgery is performed to correct these kinds of defects. It may also be performed to increase the size of the testes. Sometimes people get a testicular implant for cosmetic concerns. An implant is created to match the normal size of testicles. In case both the testicles are absent the implants are created to fill the scrotum to restore the symmetry. Testicular implants are filled with saline or silicone and then placed inside the scrotum. They feel soft to touch and provide a realistic feel and appearance.
Testicular implant surgery is performed as an outpatient procedure. It can be performed under minimal anesthesia. It takes 30 minutes to 2 hours to complete the procedure. The patient is given general or local anesthesia to block the sensation of pain and discomfort. Usually, an incision is made in the lower part of scrotum or groin. The implant is placed in the correct position and then the incision is sewn to close. Bandages are applied to provide additional support.
