Graft with an implant
« on: July 31, 2022, 11:24:09 PM »

My doctor advised that on the day of surgery in the implant is leaning to one side, he may add a graft on the other side.... Has anyone had this done ?

I have seen a few peoples journal on FT where they have both. From what I understand some doctors like to do it while others try not to.

I had a separate surgery 3 years prior to implant which was a mistake. The grafting to correct the crooked penis straightened my penis, but it also shortened my penis.
I can only speak for me, but I wish I had known about implants when I had the first surgery and I would have never had it, I would have gone straight for the implant.

Thanks for your responses guys, really appreciate it as this is a really big step for me.

Step one - was it the actual grafting procedure which caused the shortening? My Uro advised that the grafting would not cause shortening.

Thanks again,
J

Mine was called a Nesbit.
He told me I no would not lose length, he was wrong.
This was from a surgeon in Maryland that is no longer in practice.

Nesbit plication does not involve grafting. In simple terms, plication involves placing a stitch on the tunica to straighten the penis.

Whereas, grafting involves cutting scar tissue out and stitching a graft onto the excised area.
