Penuma® Penile Enhancement FAQs
We’re answering frequently asked questions about the Penuma implant.
What is the science behind the Penuma® penile enhancement implant?
We invented the implant in the early 2000s and subsequently received 510(k) clearance.
Our most recent, IRB-approved clinical study done over a five year period found very high levels of satisfaction with the implant over the short and long-term and significant improvements in patient self-confidence.
Does the Penuma® penile implant feel natural?
The Penuma® implant is designed to feel natural whether you’re flaccid (“soft”) or erect (“hard”). It is made with soft, medical-grade silicone.
Patients often report that it is undetectable to sexual partners who did not see the penis before the procedure.

The Penuma® implant is made of a soft, medical-grade silicone to provide a natural feel. The implant contains no liquid or gels.
Where is the Penuma® implant manufactured?

What are the benefits and risks of the Penuma® penile enhancement implant?
As with any procedure, there are potential benefits and potential risks.
Our IRB-approved, retrospective clinical study found that patients experienced high levels of satisfaction with the implant and increased levels of self-confidence as a result of the implant.
There were a small number of adverse events reported (e.g., infection in 3% of cases and seroma in 5% of cases) and often due to patient non-compliance with post-operative instructions. Therefore, it is imperative that patients follow all post-operative instructions.
The medical staff will discuss all possible risks, complications, benefits, and alternatives, including no procedure, with patients prior to the procedure.
How much does the Penuma® implant cost?
Pricing is based on the individual circumstances of potential patients. Patients consider the implant to be a long-term investment in their well-being. Please note that we work with several financing companies to ensure that the implant can be cost-effective.

Does the Penuma® implant affect my ability to get or sustain an erection, sensitivity during sex or ejaculation?
Based on an IRB-approved clinical review of 400 patients over 5 years, there were NO cases of changes to penile function, ability to get or sustain an erection, ejaculation, or sensation during sex.
As with any surgical procedure, individual results may vary.
