  4. 4. How Does it Work? <ul><li>The penile implant is placed surgerically either through one incision under the scrotum or through an incision under the lower abdomen. </li></ul><ul><li>Usually the device is filled with saline and the patient has a pump which is hidden under the scrotum. By pressing on the pump the saline travels through a reservoir and travels into the device. (University 2011) </li></ul>
  5. 5. How Does it Work? <ul><li>The device has two chambers and when the chambers are inflated by the pump, the patient then has an erection. </li></ul><ul><li>When the patient is finished, they can deflate the device. (University 2011) </li></ul>
  6. 6. Penile Implants <ul><li>There is some risk to having penile implant surgery including that the implant will not work but with new updated surgical procedures and new materials the results have greatly improved. </li></ul><ul><li>Men with the penile implants generally say that there spouse is satisfied with the results.
