Implant in the acute/active stage
« on: August 03, 2017, 03:19:24 AM »

What would happen if you got an implant while plaques are still active? My guess would be it wouldnt work but logically it seems like it could..

I believe the more reputable doctors in this field would advise waiting until after the acute phase before doing surgery.

If you have Erectile Dysfunction and there is no pain, I do not see the reason to wait. The plaque is not calcified so it is easier to put an implant

As L Willis has said, any reputable surgeon will not operate whist the disease is still in the active phase.

Simply put, whist the disease is still active, further problems and changes can occur. Once the disease has entered the chronic phase the surgeon knows what he's dealing with.

From what I've read and exploring surgeon websites I do not necessarily agree that reputable surgeons would not place an implant during the acute phase. Indeed, some implant surgeons that are very well respected Dr. Perito, for instance, states this on his website under Peyronie's Disease:

"What do you consider a satisfying result from non-surgical Peyronie’s treatment?

Because I am the implantor, the patient must be perfectly straight when completed. I also push them quickly to surgery in order to avoid more loss of length."


ALSO

"How do you address the emotional side of Peyronie’s? What can men do to deal with the distress caused by the disease?

Early implantation limits the loss in penile length."


For implantation it seems it depends on what doctor you see and how bad your symptoms are. Some doctors (Dr. Lue) probably would never suggest implant surgery if you can still get an erection via pills but others, implant surgeons, might have no problem implanting you if you have moderate to severe Erectile Dysfunction and deformity maybe at any stage of the disease.

Just my two cents. It's scary to think that one person would go see Dr. Levine/Lue and given conservative management and another might see Dr. Perito and be given an implant. Who ends up happier?! By the looks of it to me, the implantee is often the one better off.

Yes, the implant stops the progression of Peyronie's disease, so you don't have to wait for it to become chronic. All the best surgeons will operate on you even if you're in the acute phase.

Search for  Dr Andrew Kramer  on YouTube. You'll find his penile implant channel (don't waste your time watching the butchers on the other channels). In the Peyronie's cases he implants, he's perfectly clear: Why waste your time and suffer mental anxiety -- for years? Just let him fix it.

By the way, Kramer has completed thousands of implants for men, many with Peyronie's. I've had several interactions with him over the last year. If a doctor were to state that they wouldn't do an implant during the earlier phases of the disease, Kramer would laugh them right out of the conversation, and he has thousands of results to demonstrate the ignorance of such an assertion.

I agree with JohnW.
Why making an implant after you lost 2" length, 1/2 of your girth, have severe Erectile Dysfunction.
Why not when the snowball starting to role down?

By making your dick straight. It can't continue losing size and/or become more deviated once you are implanted. The implant is too robust or Peyronie's to affect it.
