Average Age for Penile Implant: Am I Too Old?
Erectile Dysfunction affects many men, no matter their age. If you struggle to get or keep an erection and lifestyle modifications (weight loss, stopping smoking, cardio exercise, reduction of stress, elimination of drugs and alcohol), and oral ED medications don’t help, then a penile implant can help. Read on to learn more about the penis implant options and benefits of this treatment. Your age is not a disqualifier for getting a penile implant!
What are Penile Implants?
A penile implant is a surgically implanted device. Its sole purpose is to help you get an erection, usually if you have erectile dysfunction (ED). There are two types of penile implants available:
Inflatable penile implant: The inflatable penile implant is a pump in your scrotum (the pouch of skin behind your penis), allowing you to get an erection whenever you choose. In other words, you can inflate and deflate whenever you want. You control your erection.
Non-inflatable penile implant: The non-inflatable penile implant is a bendable silicone rod in the erection chambers of your penis. This type of implant allows you to extend the rods into an erect position when you need the penis to be erect.
What is the Most Popular Kind of Penis Implant for Erectile Dysfunction?
One of the more popular penis implants is the Titan penile pump, made by Coloplast company. This pump is an inflatable penile implant. The Titan pump is simple and easy to use. This inflatable penile implant is entirely unnoticeable and invisible. When you have this implant, the penis still looks relaxed and normal when flaccid. Then, when it is pumped up, the erection looks very firm and strong. It’s natural and feels real. To create an erect penis, find the pump in the scrotum and gently squeeze it a few times until you receive a full erection. Once ready to deflate, press the release bars with steady and firm pressure until flaccid. So simple and easy to use, and best of all, it looks and feels natural.

Am I Too Old for a Penis Implant?
Are you wondering if you are too old for a penis implant? Penile implants are an incredible technology for relieving conditions many people consider incurable with minimal risks or side effects. However, like other surgical treatments, people often associate age limitations with penile implants. This part of the article will discuss age, whether you can receive a penile implant, and how old you have to be.
Penile Implants at Age 50
While erectile dysfunction is more typical after your 50s and into your 60s, some men in their 40s and 50s can still suffer from ED. For some men with diabetes and long-standing hypertension, prostate cancer treatments develop severe ED, and a penile implant can help overcome ED. A penile implant is a great surgical option for you to help restore your self-esteem and improve your sex life.
Penile Implants at Age 60
60 years old is definitely not too old to have a penis implant. In fact, according to many studies, this is the average age for men receiving an implant. This common treatment method is suitable for men with erectile dysfunction, which tends to affect more mature males. If you are healthy enough for a 1-hour outpatient surgery and your doctors believe this surgery is safe, you can receive a penile implant with minimal risks and complications.

Penile Implant FAQs
The average age for a male to receive a penile implant, according to several studies, is in their 60s. In fact, men in their 80s can receive a penile implant if they are in good health and do great with the implant procedure and recovery.
After your penis implant surgery, you may experience mild or moderate soreness for a few days. This soreness could continue for several days following the procedure. Depending on how your body heals and recovers, the symptoms will go away within a week or two.
According to the Cleveland Clinic, people with a penis implant report that sex feels the same or even better than before they had the procedure. In addition, the implant will not change the sensation on the skin of the penis. An implant will also not affect the ability to ejaculate or orgasm. It may take several weeks to adjust to the sensations of having an implant. However, once you adjust, it will feel entirely normal.
Most men enjoy their penile implants for 15 to 20 years. Dr. Tajkarimi uses state-of-the-art surgical equipment and the latest techniques to deliver a penile implant that will last! However, should breakage occur, it can be corrected with a short surgical procedure.
