Todays medically reviewed techniques and exercises are a lot more sophisticated than in the beginning, tested by thousands of men who successfully enlarged their penis this way, so it’s really only a matter of time. It works for everybody, without exceptions. It’s no easy way to make your dick a bit bigger, like training in the gym: Cheating yourself, skipping exercises or being lazy and neglecting your training means it will take longer till you notice results. Do it!
Yes, it can, but surgery is always associated with risks, including anesthesia, wound healing deficits, pain from scars, worst case even a deformed penis or permanent erectile problems. It’s effective without a doubt from our experience, but the last resort in our opinion. For men with a real micropenis (smaller than 2.75 inch) it’s often the only solution and covered by health insurance, but only about 0.5% of all men worldwide suffer from this condition. If you are just a bit below average, the risk versus reward calculation is negative for surgical penis enlargement. Especially one problem that arises from cutting the ligaments, the erection pointing slightly downwards instead of straight forward, can become a real problem according to professor Kevan Wylie from the NHS, he said “It can make sex quite uncomfortable. You’ve got to do a lot more manoeuvring with your partner. The advantage of a 2cm (0,8 inch) gain in flaccid length is far outweighed by the loss of angle of erection.”
Penis pumps and vacuums are popularly used as sexual aids to promote erections in men. They are also used by some with the intent of increasing penis size. These devices are placed over the penis (and sometimes the scrotum) and use suction to engorge the penis with blood. If used consistently over a long period of time, they can cause the skin of the penis to become "spongy" and have a thicker appearance.
Streching devices and penis pumps are increasingly popular, often selling for hundreds of US dollars. We recommend staying away from these devices, because using them can lead to permanent damage of the cavernous body and blood vessels of your penis. In worst case, the usage of penis extenders can result in erectile dysfunction, the inability to get and maintain an erection. Although many surgeons, including our advisory team, keep warning about them, these warnings are unheard and ignored by many men. Reconstructive surgery for a penis damaged by excessive and wrong use of streching devices is very expensive and rarely results in full recovery.
Penis size is determined by hormone exposure and varies greatly from one individual to the next. The average length of a flaccid penis is between 3.4 and 3.7 inches, while the average length of an erect penis is between 5.1 and 5.7 inches. The average circumference of an erect penis is between 3.5 and 3.9 inches. Learn more about the average penis size.
Penis enlargement is defined as all means and methods used to temporarily or permanently increase the size of the erect penis and its erectile tissue. Often the word is used in conjunction with a surgical penis enlargement, but it is not limited to surgical means and also includes manual training like jelqing, certain foods and supplements, devices and pumps to stretch the penis.

Sliding elongation is sometimes used in men who have experienced a shortening of the penis due to Peyronie's disease. The procedure involves the temporary "degloving" of skin and underlying tissues from the shaft of the penis. The constricted sheath surrounding the shaft is then severed, allowing the penis to straighten and lengthen. While the surgery does not involve any grafting, nerve injury is possible.
“The majority of men who come in seeking penile enlargement are average,” says Lipshultz. “I just don’t think men have a realistic idea of what normal is. Hence they think that they are below normal when actually they’re average.” (For the record, the average erect penis measures 5.6 inches, according to research published in the Journal of Sexual Medicine.)
Avoiding injury has two major reasons. One is general penile health, you need your penis working properly. After all, you use it every day when you use the bathroom. The second reason is because injury creates long-setbacks. If you injure yourself, you cannot continue to do penis stretching training, which adds on a 1-3 months of delay because you need to focus on recovery, instead.

To start this exercise, you will retrieve the erect phase by sitting on a chair edge. Hence, hold a towel over the penis head, increase the penis head, and hold it for three or five seconds. You should do three or five sets with five to ten reps. If you feel stronger, you can rise up the resistance by wet towel, or by a larger towel over the penis head. Before you start an exercise, you can warm up by using a warm cloth with warm water and squeeze it correctly.
For the best results, our research shows that you have to calculate three to six months for significant results. The success of penis exercises varies, some guys are really lucky and see a measurable growth in just a few weeks, for some guys it takes a little longer. Don’t give up if you don’t get fast results, every penis is a little different, but jelqing already worked in ancient egypt, so it will work for you, too.
Apart from the risks, penoplasty (surgical penile lengthening and girth enhancement, often by releasing the penile suspensory ligaments, so just an optical improvement) is the most expensive way for penile enhancement. According to About Health it ranges from $4000 up to $17000. If you are interested in surgical enhancement, we recommend reading the in-depth article on Medscape about possible surgical techniques and results. There is a less risky new method, the FDA-cleared Penuma implant developed by my collegue Dr. Elist (James Elist, MD) for flacid size enlargement, but the erect size lengthening is minimal and the cost is in the low five digits, too.
A penis enlargement procedure may be indicated for a man who has experienced penile trauma or has a medical disorder that affects the function of the penis. In cases where penis size affects fertility or quality of life, penis enlargement may be considered under the direction of a urologist. These include surgical procedures known as penile augmentation (a.k.a. augmentation phalloplasty).
