How Far Into Glands Do Your Cylinders Go? Anyone Able to Share?

When pumped but not aroused the tip is soft. Floppy, no. Yes you can bend the tip but its like it would be without an erection. Only thing I can see that would be different is that the glan is not as large.

Would those with an implant be able to share how far EXACTLY into the glands their cylinders go?

Is it 1/4 or 1/2 or 3/4? Or maybe 1/3 or 2/3? Does this change across the three states: flaccid, pumped, pumped + arousal?

I don't think my surgeon will give me a full on floppy head, but what about a partial floppy head? I would assume the glands are firmer the farther the cylinders go into the glands?

If I can get some data on this, then I will be able to discuss this very precisely with him.

(edited for brevity)

fitted to perfection!

Thanks!

How far your tunica extends into your glans will be the first determiner of the answer to your question. Most men's tunica goes into their glans about halfway or a little further.
The implant can do little or nothing in that regard and the fitment of the implant into your tunica can be very close to 4/4, matching precisely the fit of your original unimplanted tunica with the fit of your tunica with implant. But if the surgeon is over-aggressive in sizing the implant and the implant presses too far, erosion of your tissues can be problematic (in an area where you DO NOT WANT problems).

Perfection is nice as a goal, but optimal is what you should be satisfied with. Don't set yourself up for disappointment.

Mine goes within 1/4 in of the tip. I get very aroused when I play with it.

Despite having an AMS 700 CX which does not expand in length the tips of my implant are at the top Corona level of the glans when deflated, but when inflated they are 3/4 of the way into the glans. A perfect result which means that the head is firm and not floppy and this makes insertion easy - just as it was before I had ED.
76 yr Type 2 diabetic, long term ED, pills then injections (Caverject). After 4 years they became less effective. Implanted by Mr Summerton at Leicester General Hospital UK on 20/3/2018. AMS 700 CX 15+4 cm with MS pump. Pain free since operation.

My cruse is 3 inch deep and the 5 cm is what was needed to get the inflation tubes up near the pubic bone. 6 inch external useable dick. No problems having the extensions.


Thanks! So you don't have a "wobble" with the 5cm RTE?

I could need be heading for disappointment indeed! Thanks for detailed answer. Can I ask why you have an 18+3 and not a say 20+1? I am trying to work out the RTE thing. But i'm not seeing anything consistent.

Thanks!

My implant is installed infra pubic. The nature of my body, the cruses were 5 cm deep from my pubic bone to 1/2 inch from my anus. That was all filled with the RTEs (5cm). My inflatable tubes(15cm) start from there. The tubing from the pump connect right at the pubic bone. It is very solid set in the cruse and stands at 2:30 when hard at 6 inch useable. It depends on your body style. Some (EID) never use RTEs. I don't even feel the RTEs in my body.

My tips go 1/2 way into the glans when erect and about 3/4 when flaccid. Absolutely no problem.
