Penile Implants in Atlanta, GA
Dr. Kapadia is Here for You When Other Treatments Have Failed
Penile implants are recommended when other treatments such as ED pills, injections, and vacuum devices do not or no longer work for Atlanta men. In addition, men can also prefer having a penile implant over the other options, or when those treatments produce unwanted side effects.
Why Choose Dr. Kapadia for Your Penile Prosthesis?
During his residency, Dr. Kapadia developed a strong passion for male sexual health. After completing a fellowship in Male Fertility, Microsurgery, and Sexual Medicine at the University of Washington in Seattle, Dr. Kapadia returned home to the Southeast to provide care in the Atlanta metropolitan area through Wellstar Urology. During both his residency and fellowship, Dr. Kapadia trained with exceptional leaders and pioneers of penile implant surgery.
What is a Penile Implant?
The penile implant, commonly known as an IPP (inflatable penile prosthesis) or simply penile prosthesis, is an FDA-approved treatment for ED. An “FDA-approved treatment for ED” means that these devices (made by two brands right here in the United States) have undergone thorough, scientific testing with well-designed studies. They have been proven to be both safe and effective for treatment of ED.
A penile implant is not a newfangled device. It has been around for nearly 50 years and has a track-record of unparalleled outcomes for men. The penile implant is a safe option that provides freedom, reliability, and spontaneity when medications fail or become unreliable and tedious.
Study after study has shown significant improvement in quality of life and very high satisfaction scores amongst both male patients and their partners after a penile implant.

How does an implant work?
A penile implant comes mainly in two forms – malleable (semi-rigid) or inflatable. In my practice, most men are excellent candidates for an inflatable device or IPP with few rare exceptions. By replacing the natural hydraulic system with a reliable and permanent bionic hydraulic system, it’s a ‘one and done’ deal.
The IPP is a quick and minor outpatient procedure performed under general anesthesia. In approximately 30 minutes to 1 hour, Dr. Kapadia can place a “3 piece device” through a single, small, well-concealed incision. During the procedure, absolutely nothing is removed from your body. Penile cylinders, custom fit to your maximum size, are carefully tunneled into the natural you. These cylinders are connected to both a sterile fluid reservoir and an activation pump.
Will anyone notice that I have an implant?
All components of the device are 100% concealed within the natural ‘you’. There is no way to tell if someone has a penile implant.
In other words, if you chose not to tell your partner, they would never know about the implant.
Is sex different after a penis implant?
The most important thing to remember is that a penile implant does NOT change your desire, sensation, orgasm, ejaculation or ‘climax.’ It simply gives you the power to have an erection whenever you want and however long you want.
How do I use it?
The newest form of the device comes with a state-of-the-art pump that delivers a small amount of fluid to the cylinders with every squeeze. In order to ‘deflate’ and return to a flaccid state, a separate ‘deflate’ button can be pressed.
What happens if the device stops working?
Like most mechanical devices, the penile implant also has a lifetime. An average IPP lasts about 10 years. With that said, failures can happen earlier, and by the same token, implants can last well over 15 years.
If you have the desire to maintain physical intimacy after your implant stops working, Dr. Kapadia can simply replace your old implant for a new one with a similar procedure. Replacement procedure does not change the time, recovery, or outcomes. In fact, most men who have an implant are eager to have it replaced if theirs fails.
However, if you no longer desire to be sexually active, the implant can safely remain in your body without any harm to your health.
