testicular implant

I have been interested in getting a testicular implant for a while now. I am 36. I was born with an undescended testicle or whatever you may call it. I never really asked anyone because it has been an embarrassing subject for me to discuss. I got undecended one (left) surgically removed 15 years back.

What is the approximate cost and what are the risks and rewards.


Any input or help is much appreciated. I also read the many disadvantages of having this done for cosmetic purposes and it is still something I wish to pursue

I had a similar situation ( chrypotochordism) but due to numerous botched surgeries as a child, it left me in nearly constant testicular pain. I had both removed. My urologist was very understanding about my wish to have implants but told me I had so much scarring from prior surgeries it wouldnt be a good idea. I dont know if you are married or involved with a woman but I think if you are single and are concerned about the way you look, go ahead and hvae implants. I know if I were dating I probably would have them. I know there is a deep psychological concern with missing testicles, I have had much counseling about it. If it helps you feel better about yourself and it can be done, do it. Just my opinion. Take care and good luck
