How Do Penis Extenders Work?

penis extender devicePenis extenders are one of the safest ways to increase the size of the penis.  They are also commonly known as “traction devices” or even as a “penis straightener” since they can aid in the straightening out a curved penis (peyronie’s disease).

Penis extenders work on the basis of traction- that is they stretch the tissue of the penis over time to increase and elongate it.

This allows the tissues to grow back stronger and, in some cases, straighter. It is important to remember that, while this is a reliable and proven form of increasing the size of the penis, it is not a quick fix solution.

This is something that will need to be employed for a while for it to show decent results.

How do Penis Extenders Work Mechanically Speaking?

The penis extender traction device consists of a plastic ring, where the penis is inserted.  There are metal rods on either side of the device that are used to generate the traction. Most penis extenders are discreet enough to be worn under everyday clothing. You are able to adjust the amount of traction that your penis extender generates.

The stretching motion of the extender causes spaces to open up between the cells in the penis. Cells divide and grow into the vacant spaces between the penile cells. This ‘bulks’ up the tissue, and adds both length and girth to the penis.

Various medical studies have proven that penis extenders are extremely effective at increasing penis size.  It is important to note, however, that this improvement is unlikely to happen overnight.

How do Penis Extenders Work for My Daily Schedule?

It is estimated that a penis extender should be used for around four hours a day, and for at least six months before results should be measured.  A study published in the British Journal of Urology in 2009 claimed an average increase of around 2.3cm in penis length, after using a penis extender for four hours a day over a period of six months.

Peyronies Disease and Penis Extenders / Penis Straightener Devices

Penis Straightener

How do penis extenders work for conditions like Peyronie’s disease (or curved penis)?  Like mentioned already, penis extenders are also commonly known as penis straightener devices, because they are extremely useful when it comes to treating Peyronie’s disease. This condition is when the penis takes on a bent or curved appearance when the man gets an erection.

It is estimated that the disease affects approximately 400 out of every 100 000 men. Medical experts are still divided when it comes to the cause of this condition but the majority of medical professionals believe that is because of the presence of scar tissue that the penis does not straighten during an erection.  A penis straightener can aid in correcting this curve of the penis.

Scar tissue is hard and cannot stretch in the same way as the rest of the penile tissue. What happens is, the areas that contain scar tissue remain rigid while the rest of the tissue stretches, causing a bent look.

There are various factors that can cause scar tissue to develop in the penis, including injury or trauma to an erect penis. Some treatments for erectile dysfunction (ED) are administered by injection, and this can cause scar tissue to develop in the organ.

Wearing a penis straightener / penis extender device regularly can help in the treatment of Peyronie’s Disease, as it provides pressure on the tissue of the penis, and pulls it down which stops it from hardening over time.

How do Penis Extenders Work Compared to Penis Enlargement Surgery Options?

Penis extenders are one of the most popular forms of increasing the size of the penis.  Doctors recommend penis extenders over surgery, which is dangerous and expensive. They also do not have any side effects to worry about like pills or creams and you do not need a prescription before you can start using one.

Regular use of penis extenders has proven medically how to increase the length and width of the penis, and how to ensure that the gains stay permanent. While hanging weights can be a dangerous practice, it also only really affects the length of the penis.

The concept of traction is what makes permanent changes to length and width.
