For the longest time, Big Medicine gave men with small penises two options:
•Just deal with having a tiny member
•Undergo expensive, invasive surgery
Sure, there were various ads out there for “natural male enhancement pills” which were mostly snake oil, and even those which might have worked had little support from the Pharma people.
Luckily, recent research has shown that it’s possible to extend your penis by inches without going under the knife.
Let’s talk a bit about those, but first let’s look at the reasons you’d want to use natural, non-invasive methods to grow your unit.
Penile extension surgery refers to a variety of methods for making the penis larger by cutting on it, then adding something to it so it’s larger.
Ligament Cutting slices the ligament that supports the penis. With the ligament cut, your penis hangs longer. Remember how Gene Simmons of KISS getting his tongue elongated back in the 70s? That’s what he did, only with the ligament at the base of his tongue.
This adds up to 2 inches to your member if it works, though results vary a lot between patients. It also means your erections are going to be seriously impacted, since that tendon is a major part of the physiology of getting a boner.
Penile Injection takes some fat from your abdomen and injects that fat into your penis. The extra tissue in there stretches out the penis and makes it larger. Collagen injections into a woman’s lips use the same basic concept.
This can end up making your penis look and feel a little weird, since the penis usually has little to no fat. Also, your body absorbs fat over time. That includes fat you inject into your penis, so this is a temporary fix at best.
Inflatable Implants are exactly what they sound like. An inflatable sac gets put in the penis which extends the penis when pumped like a bicycle tire. These are usually used by men with impotence (generally caused by prostate surgery).
It’s a complex arrangement with lots of complications, but it can let you grow your penis on demand.
Many surgeons use combinations of the above to double-down on technique and have a better chance at success. Whichever method, or combination of methods, you and a surgeon decide to go with, the rewards and the risks are real and largely unpredictable.
Penile extension comes with a laundry list of risks and complications. First, there are the risks associated with any surgery that requires general anesthetics…
Then there are the risks particular to penile enhancement surgery, including but not limited to…
Worst of all, penile extension surgery sometimes doesn’t even work (source).
After healing and recovery by the body, both ligament cutting and penile injections have been shown to have little to no long-term impact on penis size.
I’m not saying your penis definitely won’t get bigger if you undergo surgery. I’m just saying that lifelong largeness isn’t guaranteed.
Personally, I don’t love the idea of paying thousands of dollars and having my junk cut for something that’s not at least 90% effective. I don’t think you would either.
Although it’s not technically surgery, I should spend a minute on testosterone therapy.
It works like this:
Low testosterone has been conclusively linked to hypogonadism – the shrinking of the gonads. Higher testosterone has also been directly linked to larger gonads. Thus, injections of testosterone have been tried as a way to increase penis and testicle size.
This hasn’t been done on its own very often, but is a common adjunct to surgery and other methods. A Moscow study of men with micropenises used testosterone therapy to increase patient penis size until the penises were large enough to fit in a standard penis extender device (source).
Hormone therapy carries its own risks and problems, whether it’s used on its own or as part of a larger training regimen. I’ll talk about the details of that in another article, but overall it’s not much of a better option than surgery.
So, you don’t like the size of your penis but you also don’t like the idea of getting cut on or artificially amping up your testosterone levels.
I don’t blame you.
Fortunately, those aren’t your only options. Without the help of (and sometimes with direct interference from) modern “traditional” medicine, four noninvasive, nonsurgical, natural techniques have come into common use.
Penis Extension involves strapping your penis into a device that stretches the penis past its normal length. Just like with the muscles of a yoga teacher, over time this makes the tissues of your penis longer.
Jelqing is a little like masturbating, but you use both hands so the blood you bring into your penis stays there longer. By doing this, you slightly overinflate the tissues of your penis for several minutes. That overinflation stretches the tissue until it becomes permanently larger.
Hanging sounds like a joke but is both serious and effective. You strap your penis into a (pretty) comfortable rig that lets you hang weights from it. Like with penis extension, this hanging stretches it beyond its normal length and that stretch eventually becomes permanent.
Traction Wrapping is when you stretch your penis manually, then wrap the shaft in tape to keep it stretched. Staying stretched like this keeps the tissue stretched and therefore longer, which can permantly increase the size of your flaccid hang.
Other methods exist, both as primary exercises and as ways to cement gains once the core regimen has developed length and girth.
Penis extension surgery is a thing. It’s as real as boob jobs, and as costly, and with even more potential side effects. It’s not for everybody, and I would suggest for the most part it’s not for anybody.
But that doesn’t mean you’re stuck with what’s behind door number two: just living with it.
The array of natural, effective penis enlargement methods is wide and deep these days. So, I recommend trying at least a couple before committing the time and danger of going under the knife.
