Penis extender usually refers to a penis enlargement device that works based on the principle of traction (stretching of the penis tissues). The penis extender is used to add more length and girth to the original penis size within a specified period of time. The stretching or traction creates micro-tears in the tissues, which facilitates cellular growth and enlargement. While all penis extenders are designed around the same principles, the differences in design have a dramatic impact on their comfort. However, with time and consistent application, most of the penis extender devices should give you the enlargement results you are looking for. Having said that, not all of these devices are effective based on some factors. It is necessary to look for a safe penis enlarger that is comfortable to wear and one that does not cause pain.
Penile traction devices are classified as non-invasive low risk devices but still you don't want to take any chances. You only have one penis and it is important to you. Only use quality penile extenders, ideally they should be medically approved devices. The following are the key features that one should look for in penis extender (enlargement) devices.
Stretch – Penis extenders are designed to stretch and pull the penis. The device that applies stretching and pulling most effectively will help enlarge the penis most effectively.
Comfort – The longer you can wear the penis extender comfortably, the better the results over time. E.g. a comfortable-to-wear penis extender with less stretching power is much more effective than an uncomfortable device with super stretching power, mainly because you can wear the comfortable penis extender for longer periods of time. There is one penis extender on the market that differs greatly from the traditional design — the Phallosan extender. It uses a revolutionary vacuum system to aid in extension.
Unique design, adjustability – Penis extender must be adjustable to your starting size and should come with parts that can make the device adjust to your growing penis size over time.
Studies That Confirm That Penis Extenders Do Work
A study by Paolo Gontero and colleagues at San Giovanni Battista Hospital at the University of Turin, Italy, published in the British Journal of Urology, found that men gained nearly 1 inch in flaccid length, after using a penis extender for six months. Another study, performed by Marco Ordera and Paolo Gontero of the University of Turin in Italy, found similarly supporting results. 121 men underwent penis enlargement surgery while 109 men used non-surgical penis enlargement methods, including the use of penis extenders.
· The average flaccid length gain for the non-surgical methods was 0.7 inches.
A similar study found men gained, on average, 0.9 inches flaccid and 0.67 inches in erect length.
Golden Rules of Penis Enlargement
Like every exercise, if you overdo it, you can injure yourself. With this in mind, following are tips to steer clear of penis extender dangers. Pain means No Gain both in penis extender wear as well as penis exercises. IF you wear it 24 hours for 7 days a week, you may end up injuring yourself while suppressing growth by not giving your penis time to restore and grow torn-up tissues.
Do not overstretch: less is definitely more with extenders. Overstretching your penis will only result in hurting yourself and you won’t achieve the gains you’re hoping for.
Consistency is essential. Consistent application, with a comfortable stretch, is what will give you the increased penis length you’re looking for.
Standard Penis Extenders
Standard penis extenders such as QuickExtenderPro, SizeGenetics and MaleEdge have two fastening points — one at the base of the penis and one just before the glans.
Bars or rods — these extend the length of the extender
The bars or rods are lengthened by the wearer, to stretch the penis overtime. Where design differences come into play is the mechanism by which the rods are lengthened and the comfort features (such as padding) of the device itself.
