Silicone and saline testicle implants are available. The silicone implants are safe and feel very natural but are slightly firmer than a normal testicle. The saline implants are supposedly softer but are more expensive and can leak.
The testicle impalnts surgery is relatively minor and is not very uncomfortable. It takes about one hour and is performed in a fully accredited surgical center. General anesthesia is usually used. The complication rate is extremely low. I will see you on the day before surgery, and you can return home 2-3 days after the operation. If you have a relatively sedate job, you can probably return to work in 5 days. You can resume sexual relations in about 4 weeks. Insurance usually covers a large portion of the cost unless you are in an HMO.
