If you notice a change in the angle of your erections, see a urologist who specializes in sexual medicine. Your doctor can prescribe an intervention, such as a penile traction device or vacuum device, which can essentially stretch contracted scar tissue back to its normal length, says Walsh. They won’t do much for healthy penis tissue, which is probably as elastic as it can be already, he says.
“Young men generally become preoccupied with the size of their genitals when they compare with others,” she says. “Historically, this was limited to changing rooms or the odd top-shelf magazine. But now there is this almost routine exposure to porn via smartphones. And that is creating a generation of men whose expectations of what they should look like are entirely unattainable.”
Cock Rings. These rubber donut-shaped devices tightly encircle the erect penis. Typically used to help maintain erection, they also provide a small--temporary--size boost. Flaccid or erect, blood circulates in and out of the penis. One of the veins that carries blood out runs close to the organ's skin (on top). A ring restricts outflow somewhat by compressing this vein. Don't expect miracles. Any effect is modest and temporary.
The challenge was how to properly extract the tissue and also how to resolve three related problems. For a number of years some plastic surgeons performed “fat grafts” as a technique for penile enhancement. However, such approaches were known to eventually deteriorate into a clumpy, unhealthy form. Additionally, the body tended to reabsorb the bulk of that implanted tissue causing a loss of increased size. Finally, the technique offered no opportunity to increase penile length – a common patient request with augmentation.
In terms of what constitutes small, big and average, a 2007 study from British urologists Kevan Wylie and Ian Eardley revealed that the average erect penis is 5.5 inches in length and 4.7 inches in girth. According to Wylie and Eardley, most men who suffer from small penis syndrome (i.e., the anxiety of thinking their penis is too small even though it isn’t) have nowhere close to what scientists define as a micropenis. Not to mention, according to one of the studies cited, 85 percent of women surveyed said they were satisfied with their partner’s genitals, whereas only 55 percent of men were happy with what nature had given them. In other words, almost half of the men surveyed would like to have a bigger dick.
Penis pumps. These plastic tubes create a partial vacuum around the penis. The vacuum draws blood into the organ, resulting in temporary size enhancement. Models differ, but all include a plastic tube and a pump operated by a hand bulb. You squeeze the bulb, which evacuates air from the tube, drawing a little extra blood into the penis. Just remember, the effect is modest and temporary.
“I have personally recommended this to men and I have received lots of great feedback regarding its long(er) term use. It’s a hydropump, so it works by using water when you’re in the shower or bathtub. To fully understand this, it’s important to know that the penis has three soft chambers, the corpora cavernosa (two large one’s on the top of the penis) and the Carpus Spongiosum (a smaller one on the bottom of the two). When these two fill with blood, you get an erection. What Bathmate or a penis pump can do is expand these chambers, thereby allowing more blood to fill in."
