The prostatic urethral lift procedure is performed in the prostate and the urethra, the tube that carries urine from your bladder out of your body.  The enlarged prostate lobes are separated to give more room for the urethra to become wider which means you will be able to urinate easier.

During this procedure, the urologist places an instrument into your urethra. When the instrument reaches the prostate wall, it ejects small, thin implants into both sides of the prostate which makes the urethra and prostate opening wider.

Depending on the size of the prostate, the urologist will place from 2 to 6 implants to separate the prostate tissue. Because it creates an easier pathway for urination, it can help relieve the symptoms of Benign Prostatic Enlargment (BPE).

This procedure could be interesting if you want to avoid symptoms related to your ejaculation, although urinary symptoms could reappear over the years.
