"The procedure is marketed as penis lengthening surgery because patients are left a little longer, but only when flaccid (1−4cm). Patients should know that no erect length is gained. The only surgical method to gain erect length is a form of penile disassembly where the head of the penis is detached and new tissue is grafted into the penile shaft."
As we started to analyze these products we found that there is way too much marketing hype which is completely misleading and is causing people to buy products that not only have no effect, but can also be harmful. There are countless brands to choose from and many of them make outrageous claims about what their product can do without any legitimate studies to back it up. We have done the research and will guide you through this deceptive web we call the male enhancement industry.
According to the website of one such product, the safe application of traction encourages tissue cells to divide and multiply, a process called cytokinesis. Over time and with great effort this will lead to tissue growth. The FDA considers these low-risk devices (Class 1) and so provides only general controls intended to be followed by manufacturers.
really hard to tell without knowing your actual size. The bigger your penis, the easier your gains because there is simply more tissue. A very good gain if you are a little below the average at the moment is about 1.5 to 2 inches in 6 months. Requires some effort, most people will probably see like 1 inch in 6 months. There are always exceptional results a few men may achieve, but don’t expect wonders. Setting goals is great, but don’t be disappointed if your growth is smaller or takes longer than expected. Every inch helps and at the end it’s about permanent long term results. Definitly don’t believe claims like “grow 5+ inches”, that’s something no average guy will ever see, even after years.
Surgery offers the only 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, allowing the penis to descend. Weights, or stretching devices, are then used for a few months to affect 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.
Androgen Deprivation Therapy – Androgen deprivation therapy is used to eliminate as much testosterone as possible in the body to treat prostate cancer. This may be done with GnRH or LHRH agonists, which reduce the amount of testosterone in the body or with anti-androgens, which block the use of testosterone by cancer cells. Unfortunately, the reduction of testosterone can cause genital shrinkage . While other treatments are available if you’re worried about shrinkage, it’s important to weigh the pros and cons with your medical professional when making a decision.
There are several surgical treatments, most of which carry a risk of significant complications. Procedures by unlicensed surgeons can lead to serious complications. Risky surgical treatments include subcutaneous fat injection, division of the suspensory ligament, and the injection of dermal fillers, silicone gel, or PMMA. The American Urological Association (AUA) and the Urology Care Foundation "consider subcutaneous fat injection for increasing penile girth to be a procedure which has not been shown to be safe or efficacious. The AUA also considers the division of the suspensory ligament of the penis for increasing penile length in adults to be a procedure which has not been shown to be safe or efficacious." Dermal fillers are also not approved by the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for use in the penis.
