Penis pumps and extenders are devices that claim to offer temporary improvements in penile size and function, but their ability to provide permanent enlargement is a topic of debate within the medical community. Let’s look at both devices individually:
Penis Pumps (Vacuum Erection Devices): Penis pumps create a vacuum around the penis, drawing blood into the penile chambers and causing an erection. While these devices can lead to a temporary increase in both length and girth due to increased blood flow, the effects are generally short-lived. Once the vacuum is released, the penis returns to its normal size. There is no evidence to suggest that using penis pumps regularly will result in permanent enlargement.
Penis Extenders (Traction Devices): Penis extenders are devices that apply gentle and continuous tension to the penis over time. The idea is that this tension may promote tissue growth and elongation. Some studies have explored the potential benefits of penis extenders, particularly for conditions like Peyronie’s disease (penile curvature) and erectile dysfunction. While some individuals might experience minor increases in size while using extenders, the results are generally modest and not permanent. Once the use of the extender is discontinued, the penis tends to return to its original size.
