Especially strechers are aggressively marketed because manufacturing costs are only about $20 in China and they sell to consumers from $150 up to almost $500. Don’t believe it? Check chinese websites/marketplaces like Alibaba for wholesale prices. A profit margin of up to 2500% is something even many drug lords are envious of, so the companies selling extenders build shiny websites, pay medical personnel for fake testimonials or raving reviews of these useless and dangerous devices.
“My advice to men is that before they try any potions, creams, pumps or surgery, improve your technique. You will feel more confident and women will like you a lot more, at least in the bedroom,” says Dr. David Shusterman, MD, the Medical Director of NY Urology. A lot of men don't invest money into the right products that will improve the outcomes. “At every Duane Reade they have what I call a penis enhancement pack; it includes a penis ring with a vibrator on it. The pack is $10 and it will achieve what the men want to achieve without going through surgery,” says Dr. Shusterman. A lot of men want enhancement but it tends to only hurt your sex life, not help. “Most guys regret going through surgical enhancement,” says Dr. Shusterman.
• Forget surgery. The full lengthening and girth enhancement, is expensive (around $15,000) and problematic. Lengthening surgery cuts the ligament that makes an erection stand up. This adds an inch or so, but erections no longer salute. They just hang between your legs and must be manually directed into erotic openings. Girth enhancement takes fat from the buttocks and injects it under the penis skin. Sounds good, but quite often, the result is a lumpy, deformed-looking penis. Not to mention if overtime it could cause problems.
But, before you get excited, there are some things to consider first. To begin with, this procedure only works on circumcised men, so if you aren't cut, you'll need to undergo a circumcision beforehand. Next, consider the cost: a $1,500 down payment is standard, with the actual procedure often reaching $15,000 in pricing, depending on how reputable and experienced your surgeon is. Finally, it's going to be painful (even with anesthetic) and will involve a lengthy recovery time, during which you cannot masturbate, have sex, or even get aroused. If you still think this is the solution for you, proceed by first consulting your doctor.
Think it through carefully before getting surgery. Surgical penis enlargement, or phalloplasty, has unfortunate side effects. The penis is extended in length, but you sacrifice function. After an enlargement procedure the penis is no longer able to stand out from the body; instead, it hangs between the legs. And sometimes, it no longer gets erect at all. Looking into natural solutions is a much better bet.
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).
