Penis Enlargement Methods

Penis Enlargement – The Truth

Because the desire for a bigger penis is both a preoccupation and a source of concern for many men, the penis enlargement ‘market’ has flourished. So what are the options, what works and what doesn’t?

Penis Extenders

Penis Extender devices are a cost effective, safe and efficient way to permanently enlarge your penis. The treatment will require you to wear a device for a few hours daily. The procedure normally lasts 2-3 months.

Pills and Potions for Penis Enlargement

There are literally hundreds of adverts and articles on penis enlargement — your inbox probably suffers as a result. They talk of the amazing, ‘unbelievable’ results that can be achieved. The only honest word here is ‘unbelievable’. Save your money. No pills or potions currently on the market has a permanent effect on increasing penis size.

Vacuum Devices for Penis Enlargement

Vacuum devices are often recommended for the treatment of impotence. They are also advertised for penis enlargement because the penis does increase in size for a time. Vacuum pumps are placed over the penis. Air is then drawn from the tube and this creates pressure. As a result, blood is forced rapidly into the penis, as happens in an erection. A ring is then applied temporarily to the base of the penis to stop the blood draining away too quickly. Penis enlargement will only work for around 24 hours.

There can also be side effects. Blood vessels can rupture causing swelling and pain. If you do want to try a vacuum device for erectile problems, or you feel it might be a pleasant sensation, you do need to be aware of the potential dangers and the fact that some devices available are poorly designed.

Penis Exercises

As the penis does not contain any muscles there are no exercises or massage techniques that will enlarge it, (except in the short term)!

Surgery for Penis Enlargement

Surgery offers a permanent solution for enlargement of the penis. Through surgery, the penis can be visually enlarged, usually by just over an inch. The surgeon will cut the ligaments that hold the penis in its usual position and this allows the penis to descend. Weights, or stretching devices, are then used for a few months to effect a permanent increase in size. The procedure may result in scar tissue, the erection will point down, and the base of the penis will be hairy.

Another surgical technique is known as a dermal implant. Girth and length can be increased by transplanting fat cells from other parts of the body to the penis. As the size of head of the penis cannot be increased the results can be visually rather odd.

Sometimes the distribution of the grafted cells results in clumping and a gives a far from smooth result. Many Urologists will not perform this type of surgery unless there are good therapeutic reasons.

Cost of Surgical Enlargement of the Penis

Costs for this type of surgery, be it penile lengthening, widening or enhancement, ranges from $4000 to $5000 dollars and up to $17000.

Post Operative Complications and Penis Enlargement

As with any form of surgery there are a number of potential risks both psychological and physical.

  • The results of penis enhancement surgery do not satisfy everyone. This is partly because the hope such procedures will cure, or be the answer to a problem, are often not fulfilled.
  • Anxiety may detract from the pleasure or fantasy of a bigger penis
  • During any surgical technique things can go wrong, albeit, very rarely. These include:
  • Post operative infections
  • Damage to surrounding tissue and nerves
  • Side effects of an anesthesia Video Links for Penis Enlargement Treatments
