Glans size post op?

Postby wunhunglo » Mon Nov 23, 2020 2:59 pm

Hi,
I’ve had two video consults with Dr. Eid and am almost emotionally ready to take the leap. I’ve heard varying results regarding glans engorgement.

Can anyone share their experiences? E.g., no change, slightly smaller, so small I regret the surgery.

Thank you

I don't get fully engorged glans like I used to but I do get an erection as hard as a steel pipe. It's a small trade off for me.

No change for me. I still wake up with what I think is a nocturnal erection, and it turns out it is my glans engorged

All nerves removed during an RP. Glans is cold and white. I can get it plump and red with a lot of work. Depends on what caused your ED.

Significantly smaller glans here. Annoying. But I went into this process being honest with myself that there would be changes and adjustments after IPP, not blissful perfection.

My glans used to be very fat and firm and engorged back in the days of pills and injections. No real definitive clarity on why I'm having this lessened experience with my glans now. My surgeon is a top tier guy with all this. Everything went ridiculously smoothly and easy overall. I had some venous leakage prior to implantation and some of the thinking is that the not-insignificant trauma of dissecting my dick open and doing all the things the IPP does somehow exacerbated whatever leakage I already had. Which is credible to me and, I suppose, not particularly surprising.

Net result though is a loss of total length and girth mostly attributable to the inability of my glans to engorge.

I'm undecided as to fooling around trying a vacuum device, constriction rings, etc. I had this surgery chiefly to eliminate all the theatrics and unknowns and prep and planning and bullshit like that. That's just me, though. We want to inflate and play, not go through some fucking science project prior/during.

On the whole? If I knew pre-op that this exact dick I have today is the dick I would have post-op...I'd still say absolutely, yes, and without hesitation, let's do this.

All depends on your personal point of view of course and your experiences, physicality, partner, and goals. Implant has been indescribably impactful and positive for us. We love it. It's single-minded and unstoppable, it feels good, it immediately does anything and everything we ask of it, and often.

And the crippling mental horseshit of ED?

Poof.

All gone.

So if I ever get some glans size back somehow, great. But I live my days assuming I won't. The trade-offs tip way, way in my/our favor on this.

I never measured my glans but my wife says in her opinion the whole penis got larger including the glans. That's why she flinches on entry. I may add that my tips go way up into the glans , I would say 3/4 up if not a little more.
Also she says she can definitely feel the glans swell up when doing oral as well as the shaft. I noticed for the first several months after the implant, if I was in a situation where I would normally fail to perform my penis felt flatter and the glans softer. After my confidence came back my glans seem normal but can still swell more with oral.
It will take time for your ED brain to fade away, this can affect glans engorgement.
I would advise get the implant with a great surgeon, so you don't end up with floppy glans, now that is something to worry about.
Good luck.

My glans size has remained the same as before the operation, too.

I believe that if you research those men that have glans engorgement issues. You'll find that many of them have had prostate cancer. Some of the cancer surgery technics can cause glans problems. The implantation of an implant does not involve any of the blood supply to the glans.
Please be careful jumpng to conclusions on some mems experiences. We all have the same (ED) problem. But we do not all share the same medical history.

The following is part of my response to another recent post about 'glans' concern (although that title doesn't alert you to what the subject of the post is about.)


1. My glans were 'normal' prior to the implant. After implant (AMS 700 CX), they don't engorge at all! [My 'dr.' mis-positioned the tubes; the right tube extends about 0,5 in (~ 1,25 cm) further than the left tip. Consequently my glans looks somewhat deformed, turning down and to the left.)

I wish you the best.
