ATOMS consists of bio-compatible, tested components. It is primarily made of medical grade silicone, titanium and polypropylene, which are used since decades on a daily basis for the manufacture of various medical products. Adverse patient reactions are seldom, however as with any implant, there are always risks that your surgeon will explain in detail. More common side effects are direct post-operative perineal pain, which may continue for more than two weeks, and numbness or increased sensitivity around the scrotum, glans or groin.
The effectiveness of the therapy with ATOMS cannot be guaranteed and depends on a variety of factors, e.g. degree of incontinence, general health index before surgery, etc.. Please consult your doctor in detail about all possible risks and side effects.
