Like any device, penile implants can sometimes experience mechanical complications. Leaks, kinks, or pump issues might occur. The good news is that many of these can be fixed or managed without invasive procedures. We'll work with you to determine the cause and best next steps.

Infections are a concern with any surgical procedure, but the good news is they're relatively rare with penile implants. Taking the right precautions before and after your operation can greatly reduce your risk. Still, if you notice any signs of infection, it's critical to touch base with us. Early intervention is key in these situations.

Pain and discomfort can occasionally happen, especially if adjustments to the implant are needed. We have various strategies to manage pain effectively, and we encourage you to communicate openly with us about your comfort levels. Your quality of life is always at the forefront of our care plan.
