I am doubting I am up to bending my penis double and squeezing it dry 11 days out.
Yes, agreed, all of us did not get "really good " at deflating until three months.
Also I am curious if what you have left at that point is a totally deformed looking penis. I have no real problem with that, just curious if I understand the concept.
It looks a little weird, but not bad; I think it is fine. Certainly, looks better than my natural flacud since it is bigger.
Finally. How do you lock the deflate button open so you don’t have to hold the button while you squeeze your penis?
Very good point. Supposedly, the deflate button is locked if you push hard on the deflate pad+pin. (that is how one touch deflate is supposed to work) BUT ALAS, as Merrix and others have stated, this "one touch feature" did not seem to work until the 6 or 8 month point . Here is my experience:
1) for months 1 to 6 after implant: I would press the deflate button with one hand and squeeze my shaft with the other. If I just squeezed the deflate pad for five seconds, I had the "general sense" that the system was not allowing egress of more fluid from the cylinders. Cylinders would sort-of refill in the next hour.
2) for months 6 to 12 after implant, I noticed that the refill issue (auto reinflation) was less noticeable
3) after 12 months, I noticed that if I pressed the deflate pads firmly for 5 seconds, my dick would go down to 50 percent of volume over a 45 second time frame (without the need to squeeze) and would then go down to 20 percent volume over a couple hours (in other words, I could press it firmly before going to sleep, and I would wake up fairly flacid). ALSO, it was around twelve months that I discovered the trick of folding my penis over itself (points down) with my fingers between the folded shaft. I would also push down towards my pubic bone to try to wring out every drop. I did this since I wanted to really try to get it to totally empty and since I wanted to ensure that the scar and space around the reservoir were larger and thius more able to accomodate the fluid.
4) Today, I deflate using the fold over technique to get every last drop out. Over the next 15 minutes, my cylinders do partially refill , but it makes for a very nice looking flacid that does not have an issue with showing through pants (well actually, there is a mild bulge, but it is quite fine looking)
So, to answer your question succinctly, yes, I think it is correct to assume that you need to press the deflate buton the whole time if you want to get maximum deflation (and yes, I use one hand to do the penis foldover technique, and the other to press the button.)

(55 yo with Titan 22cm implant Feb 2017 by Dr Eid) Great experience -- I'm super pleased with my length and girth and implant performance.
