Phalloplasty

 The Elator Before and After Attached

The Elator was primarily designed for cis men (a cis man is someone who was assigned male at birth and also identifies as that male gender) with erectile dysfunction. However, over the years we have found that FTM transgender individuals who have had Phalloplasty have been using The Elator as well. As long as there is a constructed head of the penis (commonly known as glansplasty), The Elator can attach normally and provide rigidity. The pictures above show a completely flaccid penis before and after The Elator has been attached. Keep in mind that the model is completely flaccid but The Elator can be attached while partially or fully erect. We created this page to offer guidance for any Trans Men who have questions about the Elator. The measuring will be different for trans men.

You can find some Phalloplasty client testimonials here.

Measuring Tips - Updated 12/20/2023

We wish we could give you clear cut instructions. What we have found is that each penis is constructed differently. We don't always get feedback from our customers but we estimate that The Elator will work for 75% of our Phalloplasty customers.

The phalloplasty penis is not as elastic so the girth does not have to be as tight as shown in the standard measuring video. Basically make it tight enough so its snug and will not slip off easily but not to snug where its cutting off blood flow or painful.

In early December of 2023 we launched a new measuring system. This system is shipped for free when you order The Elator. This new device is shipped with the 4 base rings that come with The Elator. It allows you to attach and wear a device that is similar to the actual Elator. The only difference is, its a little heavier and the band that holds the front of the penis is flat versus the round one that comes with The Elator.

If you would like to try the new measuring system without buying The Elator we sell this option. The measuring strip and front loop band are the same, the only difference is we send you our old measuring band to be used on the base versus the 4 base rings.

So far are 50% of our phalloplasty clients end up needing to buy a 2nd shaft ($148).

If you have tried the Elator and would like to offer input and tips to be posted on this page please email us at sales@theelator.com


Customer Testimonials With Measuring Tips

I am an older Trans man, who is one of the first to have phalloplasty in the U.S. back in the 1980s and 1990s. Times were very different for Trans men, with very few surgical options in the U.S., with little research on surgeries, just experimentation.

I ended up with a phalloplasty created using a thigh muscle and finally getting urinary tract reconstruction, after many surgical failures. When I went back for a penile implant, the surgeon told me that I could possibly lose the entire phalloplasty if the implant did not hold, or compressed the urethra. Therefore, I did not have it done, and that left me with no possibility of a natural erection. In past relationships with women, I had to use external devices for an erection which were not ideal.

Then fast forward, about 5 years ago, I found the Elator online and was very excited to try this device, since there was nothing comparable on the market. Using the older measuring system, I miss-measured and had to have the Elator remade, and the 2nd one was not the right size either. Sadly, I gave up on it, especially since I did not have a girlfriend.

Now in 2024, they just created this great new measuring system, which I am pleased to say is very accurate. For very little cost, definitely get this new measuring system first to get an accurate measurement and to see if the Elator will work with your specific surgery. That will save you time and money.

Measuring Tips:
You must first measure using no lubricant and then you must add the lubricant, which changes the sizing (girth). You need to make sure that the base ring is snug and the right size. Then it is best if you have the length measuring stick hooked onto the base first, and then size with the girth band. Then, add the lubricant while you have the entire thing in place. Don’t take it apart, add lubricant and then try to reset everything. Once you add the lubricant, check to see if the girth band stays on or if it falls off. For this part, you need a defined glans or ridge to hold that ring in place. Otherwise, it might not hold once you add lubricant, but you have to try it to see if it works for your specific surgery. Also, err on the lower number or letter side, if you are between two numbers, for length and for girth. You want it snug enough so that the girth band won’t fall off when you move around and with lubricant.

The final result is that I was able to get the proper sizing with this new device and I believe I can now use the Elator for intercourse, when I get the next opportunity. I have a nice firm 90-degree erection and it seems to stay in place with lubricant. This device is a great alternative to getting a surgical implant and you really can achieve an erection that will allow a completely flaccid penis to be firm enough to penetrate. Also, this small company is great to deal with, very patient, responsive and helpful if you have issues. They truly want us to get the right size and be able to use the device successfully. They are comfortable working with Trans men and you are guaranteed privacy with mailing, etc. I highly recommend this company and the Elator, an incredible invention that solves a huge problem for us.
