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, 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.”
There are also traction devices which have been observed to cause small increases in length (1-2 cm overall) in some men. However, these devices are highly impractical, as they need to be worn for several hours every day in order to have an effect. You should consult a doctor before experimenting with any device to enlarge your penis, as there is a risk of side effects and injury if you don’t use it correctly. Evidence that using a traction device works is still limited.
Devices that wrap around the penis, placing a squeezing type of pressure, are advertised as methods of stretching it out. Some are suggested for use during an erection, and some for when you are not. The rationale behind these devices is based on the idea that forcing the skin and structures of the penis to narrow could allow it to lengthen. A specific device is also marketed for use during jelqing. There is no evidence that wrapping anything around your penis will lengthen it, and these devices can cut off blood supply, causing permanent damage.
The surgical treatments, the researchers found, were dangerous and had “unacceptably high rate of complications.” But among the nonsurgical methods, at least one appeared to help grow a man’s member: the “traction method,” in which a penile extender stretched the phallus daily, resulted in average growth of 0.7 in., or 1.8 cm, of the flaccid penis in one study. In another study of the same method, men reported an average increase of 0.9 in. (2.3 cm) in length while flaccid and 0.67 in. (1.7 cm) while erect.
Not really. “My personal belief, experience and view: There is a way to make the male penis bigger, but there isn't a single universal technique that would equally add X amount of inches to every man equally. Men, in their capitalistic frenzy to super-size everything in existence while ignoring the variety of insight offered from alternate possibilities of power, identity and potency, are fiendishly focused on having the biggest *insert protruding masculine status symbol here*, and miss out on so much more,” says Malcolm Lovejoy, who is based in Toronto and is an adult film performer.
Vacuum pumps are often used to treat erectile dysfunction because they draw blood into the penis, causing it to swell. Some men have tried to use vacuum pumps to increase size, but routinely using a penis pump or using it longer than typically used to treat ED can result in damage to the elastic tissue of the penis, resulting in less-firm erections. Although a vacuum pump may create the illusion of a larger penis at the time, the results are not permanent .
Many men feel anxiety with regards to the size of their penis. There are an abundance of treatments offered online which claim to help you enlarge your penis. However, these are scams - there is no scientifically proven and safe treatment which can increase penis size. Find out what constitutes an average size and how to protect yourself from harmful treatments.
The fact is verification is sadly lacking for nearly all of the male enhancement products on the market, while in many cases, there are definite warnings against these products. Specifically, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) issued a warning against dietary supplements to enhance male sexual performance, noting many have undisclosed ingredients that may be harmful. This government agency also cautioned against penis enlargers and erection-maintaining rings in at least one public alert.
Stretching with weights. Weights or stretching exercises won't bulk up your penis -- it's not a muscle. But hanging weights off your flaccid penis may stretch it a bit, O'Leary says. The catch is that it requires a freakish degree of dedication. "You might have to wear a weight strapped to your penis eight hours a day for six months," says O'Leary. At the end of it, you could be lucky enough to gain about half an inch. Risks include tearing of the tissue, burst blood vessels, and other problems.
