Using the right type of penis extenders is a matter of thoroughly doing your research. Each type has its own sort of pluses and minuses. Each approach is good in different situations. It can all depend on exactly how much you want to spend, exactly how much growth you need, and your specific situation and body type (1).
What Is A Penis Extender?
A penis extender is a device worn on the penis that increase the length and girth through a process called mitosis. They work on the simple yet effective principle of mechanical traction wherein miniscule amounts of stress are applied to the penis tissues over an extended period.
These medical grade devices have been around for over two decades and are considered one of the most effective ways to permanently enlarge the penis.
How Do Penis Extenders Work?
Penis extenders work by gradually applying mechanical force to the penis over an extended period of time which is often many months. The penis sits in a cradle that supports the shaft and the head of the penis is wrapped in cushioned noose which pulls the penis forward by the use of adjustable steel rods. The rods create the necessary tension to provide cellular division which leads to growth in both length and girth.
On the cellular level, the skin’s cells break into distinct daughter cells in a process known as mitosis. During the last stage of mitosis, known as cytokinesis, the body repairs itself by filling in the gap created by the skin cells’ breakdown. With each complete cycle of mitosis on the penile skin cells, the penis continues to grow. This is known as the traction principle in which stretching a body part causes it to adapt and grow. This is the only way to achieve natural permanent gains.
During the above mentioned process, the internal cavities of the penis including the bloodstream are also forced to expand. The result is greater blood flow to the penis that, in turn, translates to improved erection strength, ejaculation control, and overall sexual stamina.
Scientific studies have also been conducted on the efficacy of these penile traction devices. Researchers have discovered that these penis extenders can produce an “effective and durable lengthening of the penis” in general. Let’s take a look at three of the most notable studies on this matter:
• In a study published in the International Journal of Impotence Research in 2002, a penile extender device added 0.7 inches to penile length after 4 months of use for a minimum of 6 hours a day.
• In a similar study published in the Journal of Sexual Medicine in 2010, another brand of extender was also effective in increasing penile length.
• In a study conducted by researchers at the University of Turin, men in the study gained an average of 0.9 inches (flaccid) and 0.5 inches (erect) length.
Of course, the proper and regular use of penis extenders affected how well these devices worked on specific individuals.
