Of course, as with any surgery, there can be complications. While Elist's infection rate (3.3 percent) is far below the average for other implants, infections happen, and when they do, they're a drag. Other potential (though rare) negative outcomes, according to that clinical report Elist and his son commissioned: detachment of sutures (experienced by two out of 400 patients surveyed), implant breakage (one out of 400), and implant perforation of the skin (four out of 400). Elist acknowledges that because his procedure is so new, he has needed to refine it over time. But in each problematic case'many that resulted from men not being able to wait to try out the merchandise'he has fixed what went wrong for free.
I think that provides ample warning. Thanks for getting in touch.
These type of articles are usually complete PR, so surely paid for in good amounts by \'so busy I don\'t need new patients\' Elist. Now he\'ll get uninformed desperate men even more eager to try to get a spot in with him. The rest of the comments on other procedures is the typical one sided horror story scares like PMMA being \'basically plexiglass\'. Pretty horrible to think how many clueless guys are gonna get butchered because of this.
The shallow and completely unthorough \'fun\' articles in mens magazines like this is whats responsible for alot of guys being self conscious to begin with.

I did the same thing, I wrote to gq telling the truth about him
I wouldn\'t doubt Elist spent a good sum of money for this quack advertising.
yes, I like the comment about that the implant was undetectible, which is totally false. The implant is hard and you can feel and see the ridges when Flaccid and in my case you feel when Erect. There was nothing natural about it when touched.
I also don\'t think you need to be a patient to write to GQ. Most letters to the editors want your name etc. Guys may be embarrassed, I said I had surgery on my penis but was not an Elist patient and found a support site and there are a lot of disasters posted and sent some links.
You can\'t get negative reviews removed on realself so long as you keep it impersonal and stay away from attacks, but plenty of detail is allowed and pictures.
Doctor Answers 1Is the ELIST Implant safe?December 16th, 2015No, I do not believe that the Elist implant is safe at all. This solid silicone implant is not well tolerated in a soft tissue appendage such as the penis. It was shown in the 1970\'s and 1980\'s that silastic implants in the nose had a huge tendency to erode through the skin, resulting in horrible complications. Those implants were abandoned and have fallen off the map. The Elist implant is also silastic and, by definition, is neither safe nor reliable. The Elist website presents an advocacy for his implant with many slanted statements not only about the implant but, also about other techniques. If you go to phalloboards you will see that the postings about the Elist implant are nearly uniformly horrible. If you want to have phalloplasty, then see an experienced Plastic SURGEON

Dr. Elist has the bad reviews deleted from a lot of the review sites.

OMG I JUST WAS COMIBG HERE TO POST THE SAME DAMN THING!!! Somehow he had my email and sent me a link to his GQ Article. I mean WOW! Really GQ??! If you guys ever wanted to stick it to him, THIS IS YOIR SHOT!! Please contact GQ or TMZ or INSIDE EDITION to let them know the truth!! If you ever wanted to get revenge this is the perfect time!! Do IT. The News love when Magazines misinform consumers.
So I took my own advise and wrote a letter to the editor of GQ and added a link to some Elist horror stories. If they respond I will let you know, most people read magazines online so maybe they will add something.
