Implants don't shrink in size, right?
Sometimes the patient has already lost size due to other medical issues such undergoing a radical prostatectomy (removal of the prostate).... Also, a lack of regular erections due to ED can result in a loss of penis size.
If a man has a penile implant he can have erections again but often doesn't recover what he lost due to his prior medical history.
My situation exactly. I had two years without erections following my radical prosatecomy in 2000, before I had an implant inserted. I lost an inch (like many, many guys who had RPs before the introduction of "penile rehab" did, I've discovered in prostate-cancer support groups through the years), and it had nothing to do with the implant -- which my wife and I love!
Inch lost before implant, bad news. Hard penis again after implant, good news!
