I have been approved for a penile implant. I am looking for resources about the surgery: how the implant works, how it helps the penis lengthen from a flaccid state to fully erect. Also, how do I find how much experience a doctor has in this area?

Before using implants, make sure that your cause of ed has been diagnosed fully and proper work up, particularly penile doppler has been done. Then if it is found that implant is the only treatment for you, then do it in specialised centre. It helps to maintain erection - that will be controlled by you. You can change flaccid state to erect state and vice versa.
