Every man must pay attention to the anatomy of his penis. The habit of regularly visiting an urologist, from puberty on, is of utmost importance to ensure a healthy and pleasant sexual life. Nevertheless, the reality is that most men do not usually do this as often as they should and they get desperate when they notice that something is wrong with their penises.
It is relatively easy to notice the increase of penile curvature. When it gets to the point that it hinders or impedes sexual intercourse, it is necessary to seek medical help. Also known as Peyronie’s Disease, tortuosity occurs because of the formation of scars on the tissue that coats the cavernous body of the penis. However, the good news is that we can heal this condition. Most important than the clinical and surgical treatments available, is to know how to prevent the curvature from recurring.
There are also cases in which the men are already born with a curvature in the penis. This is what we call a congenital curved penis and you can learn more about it by clicking here.
Continue reading this post and learn why it may be important to combine Peyronie’s correction surgery with the placement of a penile prosthesis.
Acquired penile curvature and erectile dysfunction
Peyronie’s disease may be directly linked to the problem of erectile dysfunction. Most of times it is the poor quality of the erection that causes the curvature, since a not so rigid penis, when penetrating, is more susceptible to go through traumas that may cause the appearance of fibroses.
That is why I feel confident to say that besides correcting tortuosity of the penis, it is of the utmost importance to pay attention to the problem of erection as well. What causes a lot of resistance among men is that a surgical procedure may be necessary, which will include the placement of the prosthesis and, depending on the case, a reconstruction of the penis size to ensure patient satisfaction with the treatment.
There are many doctors who treat Peyronie with clinical methods, like anti-inflammatories, analgesics and other drugs to increase blood circulation in the penis. There is nothing wrong with that, I myself have prescribed these drugs to my patients, however this option is intended only for those who are in the early stages of the disease.
The biggest problem is when the professional relies only on this type of treatment, without considering that there is the surgical option. Because it is palliative, this method will treat only the first phase of Peyronie and milder cases of erectile dysfunction, then it will be necessary to do a precise evaluation of the quality of the erection in order to guarantee the permanent cure of the problem. Get to know here the different stages of Peyronie’s disease and how to proceed in each one of them.
The role of penile prosthesis for the definitive heal of Peyronie’s disease
Treating Peyronie’s Disease is important to restore men’s sex life. A curved penis can cause discomfort and pain during penetration, which increases the possibility of fissuring the penis during sexual intercourse, which can lead to the incidence of fibrosis that may aggravate the problem.
Just as important as correcting the curvature it is to correct the lack of firmness in the penis that possibly has started the whole situation. In addition, to solve this, the placement of the prosthesis plays a very important role. It will ensure the quality of your erection after the correction of the curvature and prevent new traumas and fissures in your penis.
It does not worth to leave the treatment incomplete because of fear or prejudice about the prosthesis, a complete treatment will ensure a longer sex life and avoid the problems from recurring.
Before drawing any conclusions, it is worth knowing the different types of prosthesis on the market, their characteristics and the criteria of how to choose the ideal implant for you.
Peyronie’s Disease and Loss of Penis Size
In many cases, when the man has a curvature problem that causes the penis to become bent, he may also lose a few inches in the size of his limb.
As this will only be noticed after correction of the tortuosity, it is necessary to make a size assessment before starting any treatment. For this, an examination is made with artificially induced erection and the ultrasound application. Only then, we will be able to prevent the patient from feeling frustrated with an outcome in which his penis was straight but smaller.
“Besides bending, my penis got thinner and decreased in size”
If there is a decrease or thinning of the penis, there is nothing to worry about it. In the same surgical procedure for the correction of Peyronie’s Disease and placement of the prosthesis, it will be done a penile reconstruction with the Egydio Technique to recover the size and diameter.
I know that some patients tend to prefer treatments based on medicines instead of undergoing surgery. However, as I have already said, Peyronie’s Disease does not develop just by itself. Usually it is also associated with erectile dysfunction, loss of penis size and caliber. That is why surgery is often the most effective method to prevent the curvature from recurring. If you think about it, you will be solving four problems in a single surgery and that does not require hospitalization and has a mild postoperative period.
If you are experiencing this problem, you will need to make a thorough assessment to identify the stage of the disease and the type of treatment needed.
Now do you understand the importance of surgery in the definitive treatment of Peyronie’s Disease? Although it is a more delicate procedure, the results tend to be more effective and long lasting.
