The AMS 700 penile implant includes a pair of cylinders implanted in the penis, a pump placed inside the scrotum, and a reservoir of saline placed in the lower abdomen. Squeezing and releasing the pump moves fluid into the cylinders, creating an erection. Deflate the device by pressing the deflate button on the pump. The penis then returns to a soft, flaccid and natural-looking state.
The implant procedure is usually done on an outpatient basis. A small incision is made in the scrotum or above the pubic bone and a surgeon inserts all components through this opening. The surgery is performed under anesthesia. You may experience pain and soreness at the surgical site. It generally takes a few days to return to your regular routine of light activity. Physicians typically say wait 4-6 weeks before intercourse.
As with any medical procedure, complications can occur. Side effects include, but are not limited to:25 natural or spontaneous erections as well as other interventional treatment options will no longer be possible; infection, in which case the implant may have to be removed; pain (typically associated with the healing process); mechanical failure of the implant.
