Insertion of testicular implants

The insertion of a testicular implant or implants is a procedure that involves inserting 1 or 2 silicone testicular implants into the scrotum.

The insertion provide the genitals with a more masculine appearance.

Testicular implants are never inserted during phalloplasty because of the high risk of expulsion of the implants and the elevated risk of infection. As for the metoidioplasty, the implants may be inserted during the surgery depending of the type of metoidioplasty  performed.

Surgical technic:

The implants will be inserted with a small incision done on the scrotum.

People who will get a penile implant with a pump inserted in the scrotum will only get one testicular implant inserted.
