Testicular Prosthesis Implantation Procedure
In cases where one testicle has not developed at all (Agenesy) or it was surgically removed due to a disease, trauma or the position which could not be solved in any other way except by surgical procedure, the empty scrotum is filled by a testicular prosthesis implant, in order to compensate for the cosmetic defect.
The procedure is performed under local anaesthesia, which is certainly enough, and it can also be performed under the general endotracheal anaesthesia. The scope of the health condition assessment corresponds to the type of the anaesthesia to be used.
The incision in the lower part of the groin area is performed to make room for the testicular prosthesis to be placed in the scrotum, and afterwards the prosthesis is fixed. The layers of the tissue are then sewn by the absorbable sutures.
In this way the cosmetic defect, such as the lack of a testicle is corrected permanently, and the prostheses are very similar to the real testicles in size and consistency.
After the procedure, patients can go home with the recommendation to rest for the following few days.
