Q/A with S. on fat grafting, Implant basics.

@Enbytex, thank you for posting so much in your blog. I continue to be grateful for how much of your experience you share. I am also so happy for you! In your blog you write that you had fat injected into your arm. How did that go?

Great! I had the fat grafting around 8 months post op, between scrotoplasty and erectile implant. I have a genetic hypertrophic scarring condition, and it made the scars at my wrist and arm behave unusual ways. It cause me a lot of pain and was not relieved by tons of OT. That’s how we got it covered by insurance. DOC overstuffed the arm by about 50%, since we were betting on that amount of reabsorption. It was a good bet, because that’s what I’ve seen. It just looks normal now, by silhouette.

What was the rationale for it and was it covered by insurance? I do not have any pain in my arm but wish there was more fat right under the skin. My wrist is still pretty tight but I got most of the range of motion and strength back. I am just interested in making the tendons under the skin less visible. I also really hope the skin at my wrist will loosen up.

It was covered because of my scarring condition. The scars had started piling up and exceeding past the boundaries of my initial graft, classic hypertrophy. That piling compressed the nerves and caused fluid to build up on my hand. Having the wrist scar revised and the fat grafted in relieved all of that constant pain. We tried a lot of mechanical scar manipulation in occupational therapy, which helped some, but it ultimately supported the case we had done all we could. Since I had met my max out of pocket through insurance, I did not have to pay more. It has made my tendons mostly less visible. I can still see them but not like before.

Also, do you happen to know if the testes on cisgender men are free floating in the scrotum or if that are attached in some way similar to what Burnett does with the saline implants?

Natal testes are attached to the vas deferens, which is how sperm travel out of the testicles. A vasectomy severs these tubes. Natal testicles are therefore usually attached in a way. They can move more in some people than others before discomfort. Twisting the testicles all the way around is very dangerous and extremely painful in natal testicles; that is called torsion and can require emergency surgery. The way that saline implants can be anchored makes them more similar in movement to natal testicles. I cannot feel the anchor point or see how it is attached, but I can tell generally where it is.

Finally, thanks for spelling out in detail your reasoning on choosing the inflatable. I am starting to think that is what I will go with. But do you feel the reservoir they put in your pelvis at all?

I cannot find the reservoir at all. The incision where it was put in, I can find, because I think it kinda highlights my belly fat, haha, buy pinching in right there.

Do you experience any discomfort with any aspect of the implants? Thanks!

It does not feel good when weight is set hard on the tubing, like if my partner were to sit directly hard on the tubing between my penis and balls. On thin people it can look like a lump there. On me, it doesn’t show as much unless you’re looking for it. So it is slightly asymmetrical. This is true of the rod also in that it is also attached to one side of the urethra or penile structure, but there is no potential tubing bulge. This bulge could be minimized by leaving the bulb somewhere else to be pinched. The pressure on my balls to stiffen my penis is significant enough that it doesn’t happen by accident, so it could be contextualized as uncomfortable if someone else was doing it roughly. I like to make it stiff myself, and it is erotic to me, not painful to me. But when someone else does it, it feels painful! I think it’s a psychosomatic effect.

I have a very mild psychological discomfort that the pump bulb doesn’t match the texture of the Torosa implant, but it is quite minor dissatisfaction, dramatically offset by the euphoria of erection. If I had the chance to get two salines, this is what I would want. Dr Burnett says that because it is filled within your body, it is the maximum size you can contain in your scrotum. At first it was taut on me, but over time my sack has stretched to accommodate and developed a little play on the lines (stretch). It’s good! e implant.
