This device aims to offer a gradual and safe increase in the length and/or thickness of the penis, providing greater confidence and satisfaction for its users.

What is a Penile Extender?

In this section, we will cover the definition and function of the penile extender, as well as explore a bit of the history and origin of this device. This information is fundamental to understanding how this method can assist in penile enlargement and what its most relevant characteristics are.

Definition and Function of the Penile Extender

A penile extender is a medical device developed to promote the increase in the length and/or thickness of the penis. It works by applying a constant and controlled traction force along the organ, stimulating the division and expansion of the penile tissue cells, resulting in gradual and lasting growth.

Penile extenders are generally composed of a base that fits at the base of the penis, adjustable rods that run the length of the organ, and a ring or loop that attaches to the glans (head of the penis). The device is adjusted to apply the necessary traction, and as the treatment progresses, the user can increase the traction force to enhance the results.

Origin and Evolution of Penile Extenders

The history of penile extenders dates back to several ancient cultures that already practiced penis stretching techniques. For example, the ancient Egyptians and some African tribes were known to use weights and other rudimentary devices to increase the size of the male sexual organ.

However, the first modern penile extenders appeared in the 1990s when the Danish doctor Dr. Jørn Ege Siana developed a device called Andro-Penis. The Andro-Penis was created as a non-surgical and less invasive alternative to traditional penile enlargement procedures, such as phalloplasty. Since then, various other penile extenders have been developed and refined, becoming increasingly efficient and comfortable to use.

Efficacy and Medical Recognition

The use of penile extenders has been the subject of studies and research over the years, and many urology specialists recognize the efficacy of these devices as a viable and safe option for penile enlargement. Some studies show that the regular and proper use of a penile extender can result in significant increases in the length and thickness of the penis.

It is important to emphasize that results vary according to the individual and the consistency and duration of the treatment. Moreover, it is essential to follow the manufacturer’s instructions and rely on the guidance of a specialized doctor to ensure the safety and effectiveness of the process.

How Does a Penile Extender Work?

In this section, we will address the action mechanism of penile extenders and present scientific studies that prove the efficacy of these devices. Understanding how these devices work is essential to ensure proper and safe use, as well as to maximize the desired results.

Action Mechanism of the Penile Extender

Penile extenders work based on the principle of traction, which involves applying a constant and controlled force along the penis. This traction force stimulates cell division and the expansion of penile tissue, a process known as “cytokinesis.” As a result, there is gradual growth of the penis in both length and thickness.

This process is similar to the expansion of tissues in other areas of the body, such as when ears are enlarged with piercings or when the neck is elongated in some cultures. The body adapts to the applied force, generating new cells and expanding the existing tissue.

Scientific Studies that Prove the Efficacy of Penile Extenders

Several studies have been conducted to evaluate the efficacy of penile extenders in penile enlargement. Some notable research includes:

  1. A study published in the British Journal of Urology International in 2009 showed that the use of a penile extender for six months resulted in an average increase of 1.7 cm in flaccid penis length and 2.3 cm in erect penis length. The study participants used the device for four to six hours a day.
  2. Another research, published in the Journal of Sexual Medicine in 2011, involved men who used a penile extender for a period of three to six months. The results showed an average increase of 2.3 cm in flaccid penis length and 1.7 cm in erect penis length. This study also emphasized the importance of medical guidance and proper use of the device to ensure effective and safe results.
  3. A study conducted in 2013 and published in the journal Scientific Reports concluded that the use of penile extenders is an effective and safe option for the treatment of a short penis. In this study, the participants used the device for nine hours daily over a period of six months and experienced an average increase of 1.8 cm in penis length.

These researches and other scientific evidence demonstrate that proper and consistent use of penile extenders can lead to significant increases in penis size. However, it is essential to remember that results may vary among individuals and that adherence to the manufacturer’s instructions and medical follow-up are key to ensuring the safety and efficacy of the treatment.

Benefits of Using a Penile Extender

In this section, we will explore the benefits associated with the use of penile extenders, which go beyond increasing the penis in length and thickness. We will also discuss how these devices can improve self-esteem and the quality of sexual relations, and we will cite success stories and testimonials from patients who have used the device.

Increase in Length and/or Thickness of the Penis

The primary benefit of using a penile extender is the increase in the penis’s length and, in some cases, thickness as well. As previously mentioned, scientific studies demonstrate that the proper and consistent use of these devices can result in significant increases in penis size. These results, however, vary among individuals and depend on the time and frequency of device use.

Improvement in Self-Esteem and Quality of Sexual Relations

Another significant benefit of using penile extenders is the improvement in self-esteem and the quality of sexual relations. Many men feel insecure about their penis size and believe that it negatively affects their sexual life and satisfaction. By increasing the size of the penis, penile extenders can help improve confidence and self-esteem, which can lead to a more satisfying and gratifying sexual life.

Additionally, some studies suggest that the use of penile extenders can improve sexual function in cases of mild erectile dysfunction or penile curvature, such as Peyronie’s disease, by improving blood circulation and correcting deformities.

Care to be Considered When Using a Penile Extender

In this section, we will address the important care to be considered when choosing and using a penile extender. We will discuss selecting a quality and reliable device, the correct and consistent use of the device, and the importance of medical follow-up to ensure the safety and efficacy of the treatment.

Selection of a Quality and Reliable Penile Extender

The first step when considering the use of a penile extender is to choose a quality and reliable device. Research and opt for products manufactured by reputable companies, which have certifications and clinical trials that prove the effectiveness and safety of their devices. Additionally, consider the reviews and recommendations of other users and medical professionals.

Correct and Consistent Use of the Device

To achieve the best possible results, it is crucial to follow the manufacturer’s instructions and use the penile extender in a correct and consistent manner. This generally involves using the device for several hours a day, over several months. However, it is important to remember that the time and frequency of use may vary depending on the manufacturer and medical recommendations.

To ensure safety and avoid possible injuries, follow the guidelines on how to place and adjust the penile extender. Also, do not exceed the recommended usage time and be alert to signs of discomfort or pain. If you experience any persistent discomfort or notice changes in the color or temperature of the penis, discontinue use of the device and consult a doctor.

Importance of Medical Follow-up to Ensure Safety and Efficacy of Treatment

Medical follow-up is essential when using a penile extender. A specialized doctor, such as a urologist, can assess your individual situation and determine whether the use of the device is appropriate for you. Additionally, the doctor can guide you on how to properly use the penile extender and adjust the treatment as needed.

Staying in touch with your doctor throughout the treatment allows for monitoring progress and ensuring the safety and efficacy of the device’s use. If complications occur or if the desired results are not achieved, the doctor may suggest adjustments to the treatment or recommend other therapeutic options.

Alternatives to the Penile Extender

In this section, we will discuss the main alternatives to the penile extender, including surgeries and other treatments for penile enlargement. Additionally, we will compare the methods and provide information on which approach may be most suitable for each case.

Surgeries and Other Treatments for Penile Enlargement

There are several options beyond the penile extender for those seeking to increase the size and thickness of the penis. Some of these alternatives include:

  1. Penile Enlargement Surgery: There are two main penile enlargement surgeries: ligamentotomy surgery, which aims to increase the length of the penis, and fat grafting surgery, which aims to increase the thickness of the penis. Both surgeries carry potential risks and complications, such as infection, scarring, loss of sensitivity, and dissatisfaction with the results.
  2. Vacuum Pumps: Penile vacuum pumps are devices that work by creating a vacuum around the penis, which increases blood flow and temporarily expands the tissue. This method can result in a temporary increase in penis size but generally does not offer permanent results.
  3. Hyaluronic Acid Injections: These injections are used to increase the thickness of the penis. Hyaluronic acid is a biocompatible gel that is injected into the penile tissue to provide a temporary increase in thickness. However, the results are not permanent and may last from 6 to 18 months, depending on the patient and the amount of hyaluronic acid injected.

Comparison of Methods and Indication of the Most Suitable for Each Case

Each penile enlargement method has its advantages and disadvantages, and the most suitable for each case will depend on the individual patient’s needs and expectations, as well as factors such as overall health and penile anatomy. Some considerations include:

  1. Penile Extender: The penile extender is a non-invasive, low-risk option that can provide progressive and permanent results over time. This method may be suitable for men who seek to increase the length and/or thickness of the penis without undergoing surgeries.
  2. Penile Enlargement Surgeries: Surgeries may be an option for those who desire more immediate results and are willing to assume the risks and costs associated with these procedures. However, it is important to weigh the risks and potential complications and discuss expectations with a qualified physician before opting for surgery.
  3. Vacuum Pumps and Hyaluronic Acid Injections: These options may be suitable for those seeking temporary results and are willing to undergo continuous treatments to maintain the effects. However, it is important to note that these methods do not provide permanent results and may be associated with side effects or complications if not used correctly.

Conclusion

In this conclusion, we will reiterate the importance of seeking medical guidance before starting the use of a penile extender, reaffirm the benefits and precautions related to the use of the device, and encourage readers to contact the office for more information and scheduling of appointments.

The Importance of Medical Guidance

Before beginning the use of a penile extender, it is essential to seek guidance from a specialized medical professional, such as a urologist. The professional will be able to assess your condition and determine whether the use of a penile extender is suitable for you, taking into consideration factors such as overall health, penile anatomy, and expectations regarding the results. Medical guidance will also help ensure that you use the device correctly and safely, avoiding complications and maximizing benefits.

Throughout this article, we have discussed the various benefits associated with the use of the penile extender, including increasing the length and/or thickness of the penis and improving self-esteem and the quality of sexual relations. However, we also emphasized the importance of taking precautions when using this device, such as selecting a quality and reliable penile extender, following usage instructions correctly, and relying on medical follow-up to ensure the safety and effectiveness of the treatment.
