Testicular enlargement (Testicular enhancement) is a cosmetic procedure to fill the scrotum using testicular implants which are ovoid in shape and are placed in front of the existing testes. Rather than a fluff bag appearance of the scrotum created by scrotal fillers, the pleasing contours of two well represented gonads are noticeable.
Atrophic testes may still produce testosterone and sperm and should not be removed unless there are strong medical indications. We do not recommend prosthetic surgery for men with normal sized Testicles.
The procedure is mainly indicated for people who have atrophic (very small) testicles or no testicles (born with none or one, undescended testis, had them removed for trauma, disease, cancer, etc.).
Preparation prior to surgery:
Assessment of the medical history (any allergies, serious medical condition and all
medications taken both prescribed and non-prescribed), physical examination, and laboratory tests will be performed during consultation.
Smoking must be avoided for about 3-4 weeks prior to surgery, as nicotine interferes with circulation and will greatly affect healing process.
You will likely to be asked to stop drinking alcohol, a week before the surgery and throughout your recovery period.
Avoid taking any medications such as hormones, anticoagulants, anabolic steroids and supplements at least 4-6 weeks to prevent complicating medical factors prior to surgery. Avoid taking aspirin, anti-inflammatory drugs and herbal supplements as they can increase bleeding.
Types of anesthesia use:
During the procedure:
Testicle Implants Insertion is done on an outpatient basis and under anesthesia, after surgical preparation, Dr. Theerapong makes a small incision in the lower part (facing the ground) of the scrotum and expose the internal aspect of the scrotal sack. He then place the testicular prosthesis or Testicle Implants in the dedicated sac. Following the placement of the prosthesis or testicle implants, the scrotal skin is closed in two layers. Due to the scrotal skin elasticity, the incision areas are hidden in the skin folds and the final scar is barely noticeable.
The testicle implants (Testicular Prosthesis) serves to enhance the testicular size or to adjust the size of one testicle to the opposite site. Typical patients for the Testicle Implants are men, who desire an overall aesthetic enhancement of their scrotum, who suffer from asymmetrical testicular size, or have undergone an orchiectomy with prosthesis placement and asymmetrical results.
