Saline-Filled Testicular Implants
About the Device
The Coloplast saline-filled testicular implant is about the same weight, shape and softness of a normal testicle. It comes in four sizes — extra-small, small, medium and large. The implant is made of a molded silicone elastomer shell that is approximately 0.035 inches thick. It is not visible on x-ray.
How the Device Works
The Coloplast saline-filled testicular implant is filled by your doctor before surgery. It includes a self-sealing injection site at one end that allows the doctor to fill the device with a sterile saline solution. On the opposite end of the implant is a silicone elastomer tab that enables the doctor to suture and secure the implant into a set position, if this is desired. Once the implant has been filled and sutured into place, the doctor can add more saline for a better cosmetic appearance.
