AMS 700 LGX is one of the most popular three-piece inflatable penile implants. It is an implant from the AMS 700 range manufactured by Boston Scientific. This highly advanced penile implant is well-known in the world. It helps for both length and girth increase. 

AMS 700 penile implants are three-piece penile implants. That means the AMS 700 LGX implant contains 3-components to function. These components are connected. A pair of cylinders, a squeeze pump, and a reservoir are the parts of the implant.

The cylinders are in pairs in AMS 700 implants (like silicone rods in semi-rigid implants). These cylinders are placed in the corpus cavernosa. The squeeze pump is implanted under the skin of the scrotum. Then, it is connected to the reservoir, which is surgically placed in the abdominal cavity.

Working of new ams 700 lgx Inflatable Implant

When anyone squeezes the pump, the fluid from the reservoir rushes to the cylinders. It results in the cylinders inflating to provide the penis with a rigid erection. After AMS 700 penile implant surgery, people can enjoy steady sexual activities for the desired duration. They can press the deflate button on the pump placed in the scrotum whenever they require a penis in a flaccid state. Deflation results in the fluid from the penis returning to the reservoir.

Features of AMS 700 LGX- 3 Piece Penile Prosthesis

AMS 700 LGX is a 3-piece inflatable penile implant. An inflatable penile implant consists of a fluid-stuffed reservoir, a pump, and two cylindrical implants. The fluid transfers to the cylinder by pressing the pump in the scrotum. One can stay erect as long as he wants. Here are some features of this implant made after long research and detailed study to fit anyone despite their ethnicity.

  1. Rear Tip Extender (RTE) Model: Tip extender helps fit in the penis and secure rigid erection. As the implant comes in a broad range of sizes, it fits correctly to any person.

  2. Concealability: The penile implant is customized for flexible use. So it offers a smooth feature for comfort while deflated.

  3. Pump with Momentary Squeeze: Momentary squeeze(MS) allows the implant to deflate with one touch. And the lock-out-valve resists auto inflation.

  4. Inhibizone Antibiotic coating: AMS 700 LGX implant is soaked in an antibacterial called inhibizone to prevent infection due to the implant. Inhibizone consists of two types of antibiotics. One is Rifampin and the other is Minocycline. These antibiotics are released slowly after the AMS 700 penile prosthesis surgery. Hence, it helps reduce the infection rate due to implant by half.

How Does The AMS 700 LGX Function?

The 3-piece IPP model consists of a reservoir that is implanted in the lower abdomen. The two cylinders are implanted into the shaft of the penis, side by side. And the pump implanted in the scrotum.

♦ The reservoir contains fluid that helps inflate the cylinders at the time of erection. At the deflated position, the liquid stays in the reservoir.

♦ Cylinders inflate when the liquid in the reservoir moves into it. The cylinders firmly erect the penis like a natural erection happens.

♦ A pump is utilized to inflate or deflate the cylinders. It helps transfer fluid to the cylinder from the reservoir for the erection.

Inflating the Penile Implant

One must know how to inflate the implant to get an erection. The experts will explain to you the function of inflating and deflating the implant. To inflate it, you must squeeze the pump in the scrotum. The squeezing helps the pump to activate. The fluid then moves to the cylinders from the reservoir. One may feel the movement of fluid into the cylinders. When cylinders get filled with fluid the penis erects.

Deflating the Penile Implant

There is an easy deflation button above the pump, to deflate the implant. When you feel the need to deflate it, you can squeeze the deflation button for about four seconds. After that, the fluid leaves the cylinders. Then, the cylinders return to their original state that makes the penis flaccid.
Remember, never to squeeze the deflation button and the inflation pump together.

1. Long Durability

The AMS 700 penile prosthesis model is ideal for long-term use without worrying. It is one among the new penile implant devices in 2023. The easy-to-use functions provide satisfaction. The parylene coating over the implant protects it from damage. Hence, this model is more durable than other implants.

2. Increases Length & Girth

AMS 700 LGX is the only implant that provides length and girth increase. It comes in various sizes according to requirements. AMS 700 LGX not only increases the length, but it also increases the girth. So, if you are worried about size, opt for this model. According to a study in Boston Scientific, patients gain 3 cm length and 2 cm girth after one year of the penile implant surgery.

3. Natural Behavior

The inflation and deflation of the implant's cylinders, provide the closest experience of natural penis erection with the help of an external device. It can be said that it’s hard to find out that a person is using an AMS 700 penile implant if not explicitly informed.

4. Excellent Concealment

These inflatable penile implants, especially the AMS 700 models by Boston Scientific, allow the penis to return to a flaccid state after intercourse, like a natural flaccid penis. On the other hand, most semi-rigid penile implants maintain some stiffness while not being used for sexual intercourse, hence providing an unpleasant concealment.

5. Ease of Use

An AMS 700 penile implant is a fairly easy device to operate. The device needs a gentle press of a pump under the skin for inflating the cylinders in the penis. Similarly, a gentle push of the deflate button on the pump to deflate the cylinders. 

6. Global Warranty

The penile implant comes with an international warranty. That means you get the warranty in any country you have the implant done in. In other words, If you get the penile implant surgery in India, and fly back to your home country, the implant is still under warranty.

7. InhibiZone™ for Less Infection

The AMS 700 penile implant model comes with an optional InhibiZone™ Antibiotic Surface Treatment, which prevents bacterial infections associated with penile implants.

8. Costs

It is one of the most advanced and successful penile implants available in the world and is considered to be a gold standard for permanent treatment of erectile dysfunction. The AMS 700 penile implant cost depends on the experience of the penile surgeon as well as the hospital. AMS 700 lgx cost is $12,000, all inclusive. 

AMS 700 LGX Sizes

The penile implant is available in various sizes for everyone. The AMS 700 LGX is available in 12 cm, 15cm, 18 cm, and 21 cm lengths. It is a 3-piece system specially made for the expansion in length. It provides 25% up in length and up to 20 mm expansion in girth. Hence, people who want to enhance their penis have an option with this penile implant.

There are other inflatable penile prosthesis (IPP) available. However, the others help maintain the size and girth. On the other hand, AMS 700 LGX sizes fit people and increase their size. As per the study, no patient experienced a shortening of the length after an implant surgery using the model. However, a 3 cm increase in length is found in a study. Many patients have received this implant because the model provides fewer complications and erection that feel ‘natural’.

Surgery Techniques and Outcomes for AMS 700 LGX Implants

The penile implant surgery requires a small incision in the scrotum or above the pubic bone. Through this incision, all 3-pieces of the inflatable penile prosthesis are inserted and put in place. The surgery lasts for around 1 hour to 90 minutes. The procedure is done under anesthesia. The patients are required to stay at the hospital for 2 days. They need to stay in nearby the hotel for 2 more days for follow-up and to avoid penile implant problems. There can be some pain and soreness at the surgical site, but it recovers soon. In 3-4 days the people become fit to carry on with day-to-day activities with protection. The patient can engage in regular sexual activity in around 4 to 6 weeks.

The surgeon has two choice while implanting the AMS 700 LGX penile prosthesis :-

1. Penoscrotal Approach

Pentecostal Approach

In a penoscrotal approach, a small incision is made in the scrotum. The pre-connected components of the implants are inserted and put in place. The implant was placed with preconnected cylinders and a pump. The chances of damage to the dorsal nerves are quite less with this approach, hence ensuring no sensory loss.

plan-your-penile-implant-surgery-in-india

penile-implant-surgery-in-india

2. Infrapubic Approach

Infrapubic Approach

A small infrapubic incision is made above the pubic bone. This approach allows the surgeon to implant the reservoir quickly and under direct supervision through the same incision. Thus, an extra incision in the scrotum is not required in the Infrapubic approach. Hence, it is more minimally invasive. The surgeon connects the cylinder and pumps later during surgery. 

While both of the above techniques are safe and successful, it depends on the approach the surgeon is more comfortable with. Most surgeons prefer the Penoscrotal approach for the perfect placement of the implant.

Does Insurance Cover AMS 700 LGX 3-Piece Penile Implant Cost?

Insurance cover for AMS 700 LGX 3-piece penile implant cost depends on the purpose of your surgery. Of course, penile implant surgery is for treating erectile dysfunction. But there are some prominent factors you must check before going deeper.

Commercial health insurance companies and Medicare, or VI, are specially designed to provide their clients with insurance coverage for medically necessary treatments. Any medical procedure that provides results for improving physical appearance or out of personal choice is considered cosmetic surgery.

Penile implant surgery is considered cosmetic surgery if psychological issues lead to erectile dysfunction. However, if your problems with erectile dysfunction are physical intricacies, then your insurance company may cover a portion of your penile implant procedure.

Medicare and other health insurance companies usually cover the costs of AMS 700 LGX or any other penile implant. If a patient can prove that his penile prosthesis is required to perform an erection then they may get cover. If you need such insurance coverage, talk to your surgeon first. Your surgeon is well aware of such factors and will help you with a detailed documented medical history. They will provide proof of the failure of other approaches as well. Gather all essential records and submit them as verified proof to your insurance company.
