TOPIC: Dr. Gary Alter VS Dr. Joel Gelman - ELIST REMOVAL

Dr. Gary Alter VS Dr. Joel Gelman - ELIST REMOVAL 4 years 3 days ago #1304623131

Hello Fellow Member\'s,

I wanted to get insight on what you guy\'s suggest would be a better candidate for Removal of my Elist penis implant ? Between Dr. Gary Alter in Hollywood VS Dr. Joel Gelman in Orange county. I have another thread regarding how I got implant and where my current status is. I want the best doctor for Removal. I\'ve already met Dr. Gary Alter. Had a consultation with him last week. I\'m going to schedule one soon with Dr. Joel Gelman.

This is an update on my consultation with Dr. Gelman. He was informative and took his time with me in answering my question\'s. Said the Removal operation would not be too difficult for him. He think\'s by physical examination due to my fluid in the penis should not have too much retraction of my penis. He said he can also revise my incision scar which look\'s horrible made by Elist.

I needed micronised Alloderm tissue removing, It's reduced in size since I considered having it surgically removed and I'm hoping to Morgenstern will be able to deal with the remaining lumps.

I\'ve seen Basque\'s thread and these photos... Very horrifying. Made me flinch and almost barf... What type of Removal did you consider having ?

I am sure you have already asked them many questions. Don\'t be shy, ask them anything that comes to your mind, you are paying them to take care of you. Keep the implant after Removal, Ask if they can take photos of the stitches on the penile shaft (if you are comfortable with it).

Tell your Dr how you penis used to stand up erect before the implant so they can try to suture it back as before. When elist removed mine, he messed up the suture and it caused the shaft to point the wrong way and I lost an easy 0.35-.05\" in EL.

Good luck!


Mustang if you had more information in the past would you have chosen a different doctor for Removal? OR do you think elist still was a better choice due to his experience ? Also, When you say you lost EL after Removal. Do you mean original EL or EL you had with the implant ?

Dr. Gelman also implied he has not removed any Elist implant\'s. Dr. Gary Alter has more experience as far as Removal goes. But Gelman does alot of reconstruction work and pro-testis implant\'s so he has general skill in that field
