Exploring the Pros and Cons of Penile Implants at Men's Health Manhattan

At Men’s Health Manhattan, Dr. Berookhim and the team understands the significant impact erectile dysfunction (ED) can have on a man’s quality of life. For those who have not found success with other treatments, penile implants, also known as penile prostheses, offer a viable solution. In this blog post, we will explore the pros and cons of penile implants to help you make an informed decision. Whether you are from anywhere in New York, including the five boroughs Queens, the Bronx, Brooklyn, Manhattan, Staten Island, New Jersey, Connecticut or beyond, our expert team is here to support you.

Pros of Penile Implants

Effective Solution for ED

Penile implants provide a reliable solution for achieving and maintaining an erection, allowing men with ED to enjoy a satisfying sex life. Unlike medications, which may not work for everyone, penile prostheses offer a consistent and effective treatment.

Improved Sexual Satisfaction

Many men and their partners report increased sexual satisfaction after getting a penile implant. The ability to achieve and maintain an erection can enhance intimacy and overall relationship quality.

Discrete and Natural Feel

Modern penile implants, particularly inflatable penile implants, are designed to be discrete and provide a natural feel. Inflatable implants consist of fluid-filled cylinders that can be inflated for an erection and deflated when not in use, mimicking the natural process of an erection.

High Success and Satisfaction Rates

Penile implants have high success and satisfaction rates among patients, well over 90% in our hands. Studies show that most men who undergo the procedure are satisfied with the results and would choose to do it again.

Cons of Penile Implants

Surgical Risks

As with any surgery, penile implant surgery carries risks such as infection, bleeding, and anesthesia complications. However, these risks are very low given our robust experience.

Potential Mechanical Issues

Although rare, there is a possibility of mechanical failure with penile implants, particularly inflatable models. Regular follow-ups and proper maintenance can minimize this risk.


Penile implants are generally covered by a number of insurance providers. Our team can help guide you through the process.


Once a penile implant is placed, natural erections are no longer possible. This irreversibility means that the decision to get an implant should be made carefully and with full understanding of the implications.


Penile implants are a highly effective solution for men with erectile dysfunction who have not found success with other treatments. At Men’s Health Manhattan, Dr. Berookhim and our dedicated team are committed to providing the best care and support for our patients from the New York area and beyond. If you are considering a penile implant, we encourage you to schedule a consultation to discuss your options and determine the best course of action for your individual needs.
