Often times, men are dissatisfied with the size of their manhood and are willing to do a lot to change the length or volume of the penis. But is it worth risking your health for it?
There are many penis enlargement techniques available. All of these methods can be divided into surgical and non-surgical. Surgical operations include operations that allow you to change the length and thickness of the penis, and non-surgical operations include various types of self-massage, as well as the regular use of special devices.
Manual methods: massage, gymnastics, jelqing
Manual penis enlargement techniques such as massage and gymnastics are particularly popular because of a number of advantages: They do not require investment and can be done independently at home. These techniques allow you not only to increase the length and volume of the penis, but also to have a positive effect on potency and increase sexual stamina, thereby increasing the duration of sexual intercourse.
These methods of penis enlargement rely on actions such as stretching and pushing, which help to strengthen and enlarge the muscles of the penis, as well as ensure better filling of the cavernous tissue with blood. If carried out correctly, these manipulations are absolutely safe. However, in order not to damage the organ and to avoid discomfort, a lubricant must be used. With regular use, the results will not be long in coming: after 1 to 2 months, the length and volume of the penis will noticeably increase.
One of the most popular types of hand held penis massage is jelqing, which means milking in English. This is a series of specific exercises that must be done in a semi-excited state. It is worth noting that it is impossible to perform many of them in a state of full erection, since it can damage the vessels.
Mechanical methods: extenders, stretchers, vacuum pumps
Among the mechanical methods of penis enlargement, special devices are particularly popular: extenders, stretchers and vacuum pumps.
Using extenders and stretchers is one of the most effective ways to enlarge the penis. They are devices for lengthening, thickening and straightening the penis that are attached directly to it. These attachments differ in design and attachment methods: the extender has two attachment points in the penis area and the stretcher has one. However, the principle of their work is the same and is aimed at enlarging the penis, which occurs due to prolonged exposure to the force of stretching on the cavernous body and ligaments of the penis. They need to be used for 2-3 hours a day, which gradually increases the time. The general course lasts from one to several months. With the correct use of such devices, after a month of use, there is a noticeable increase in the length and volume of the penis.
Another principle used to manipulate the penis in order to enlarge it is the vacuum. The pump used for this is also known as a vacuum pump. It is also often used to improve efficacy and treat erectile dysfunction. This device has a simple design: the pump is attached to a sealed cylinder that contains the penis. Air is evacuated from the cylinder, creating a vacuum. This causes blood to flow to the penis, which leads to an increase in size and length. Special rings are placed in the lower part of the penis to help maintain an erection. The enlargement is temporary but takes a long time. However, it is not recommended to use a vacuum pump for more than 20 to 30 minutes.
In many countries, operations to increase the length and thickness of the penis are to be banned. This is due to the side effects of the surgery: infection, nerve damage, decreased sensitivity, and difficulty getting an erection. In addition, the result often does not meet expectations. The European Association for Urology conducted a study: of 42 men who had undergone penis enlargement surgery, only 35% were satisfied with the results.
Surgical methods: ligamentotomy and phalloplasty
Surgical methods for penis enlargement are considered unsafe, but they are the most effective.
There are two types of surgery: increasing the length of the penis and increasing its thickness. Ligamentotomy, or lengthening of a man's penis, is performed by cutting the supporting ligament of the penis - a ligament hidden under the pubic bone. During the operation, this band will be cut as deep as possible, which will allow you to stretch the penis and increase its length by 3-4 cm. However, to prevent the penis from returning to its normal state, after such an operation it is recommended to use a stretcher that will stretch the penis for several months or six months. It is especially important to note that a stretcher is suitable for this purpose and not an extender attached to the base of the penis that does not give the desired result.
The increase in the thickness of the penis is known as phalloplasty and is carried out by implanting autologous fat, silicone or artificial transplants. Phalloplasty also includes operations to partially or completely restore the penis that has been lost for any reason.
