Without much introduction we will bring to you survey from group of researchers published in the British Journal of Urology International. They found that penile extenders or penis traction devices are more effective at increasing penis length than other methods.
Recently, great attention has been given to penile extenders, non‐surgical devices that generate progressive mechanical traction to the penis. Although there are only a few well‐conducted studies to assess their efficacy, it seems that these devices can produce an effective and durable lengthening of the penis, in both the flaccid and the stretched states. In 2002, a small study by Colpi et al. began to unveil the efficacy of penis‐stretching physiotherapy in the ‘small penis’ treatment, showing a stretched penis augmentation of +1.8 cm (range +0.5 to +3.1 cm) after 4 months of use of a penis‐stretcher device called Andropenis (Andromedical, S.L., Madrid, Spain) for at least 6 h/day. A recent prospective study showed that, after 6 months of daily use of the same extender device for ≥4 h/day, there was a significant gain in length, of 2.3 and 1.7 cm for the flaccid and stretched penis, respectively, but no significant change in penile girth was detected. These findings were confirmed by another prospective study conducted by Nikoobakht et al., who found a statistically significant increase in length, both for the flaccid and for the stretched state, after 3 months of use of the Golden Erect extender device (Ronas Tajhiz Teb, Tehran, Iran). This study also failed to show any significant change in penile girth, although it suggested the possibility of glans penis enhancement. Treatment with penile extenders is generally reported to be well‐tolerated, although longer daily use would probably reduce patients’ compliance and the patients seem to be happy with the outcome. In conclusion, penile extenders appear to be an effective treatment for patients who complain of ‘short penis’. The application of such devices can be recommended in all patients regardless of the penile length, because of the low risk of complications.
