Implant surgery can be performed about 9 months after phalloplasty. It involves inserting a semirigid or inflatable penile implant into the phallus, and testicular implants into the scrotum.
The rigidity of the penile implant allows the patient to penetrate whenever he wants to have intercourse. The penile implant is completely concealed within the body.
Being urologists, Dr. Crane and Dr. Chen perform these surgeries regularly in natal males and transgender males. They are proficient in both semi-rigid and inflatable penile implantation.
