An extender is designed to provide gentle and painless penis traction. The device fastens around the base of the penis and around the corona glans (head), offering a fully adjustable traction apparatus. When you gradually increase the longitudinal force on the shaft of the penis, the body’s natural reaction to this force is multiplication of tissue cells and gradual expansion of the penile tissue. In other words, the penis gradually adds tissue for a larger and longer penis. But be careful with these devises, some of them can traumatize your penis.
Penuma is a permanent silicone that’s been cleared (though not yet fully approved) by the U.S. Food & Drug Administration (FDA) for penile enhancement. It’s made of malleable, medical-grade silicone, so it looks and feels like a natural penis. This relatively new procedure is currently performed only in select cities in the U.S., but we expect its popularity and availability to grow. Its manufacturer claims that clinical studies have shown very low adverse-event rates (infection in 3% of cases and seroma [fluid buildup] in 5% of cases) and high patient satisfaction.
The vacuum pump. This is a cylinder that sucks out air. You stick your penis in and the resulting vacuum draws extra blood into it, making it erect and a little bigger. You then clamp off the penis with a tight ring -- like a tourniquet -- to keep the blood from leaking back into your body. What are the drawbacks? The effect only lasts as long as you have the ring on. Using it for more than 20 to 30 minutes can cause tissue damage. This is sometimes used as a treatment for erectile dysfunction, but has not been proven to actually increase the size of the penis.
