The success of PRP injections led to the cosmetic industry adopting the use of PRP for various specialized cosmetic treatments, such as the Vampire Breast Lift, Vampire Facelift, Vampire Facial, and the Priapus Shot. Certain doctors offer the Priapus Shot as a method for increasing penis size and improve erectile function. The procedure involves drawing blood from the arm, using a centrifuge to separate platelets, making those platelets think the body has been injured, so they release growth factors, and then injecting this liquid into the penis with a small needle. While you can find satisfied testimonials of men who have had the Priapus shot, no actual studies have been done to back up the idea that these shots offer effective, long-term results.
Even those penile extenders and stretchers that claim to work over time would actually just be stretching your flaccid length, and that has absolutely no correlation to how big you get when hard, says Fisch. So don’t waste your money on a product or service that swears it can give you five more inches. “There’s no actual scientific study that they rely on."
So how can we be sure it really exists? “Because the number of men seeking surgery, or the growth of this strange industry selling pills and other so-called enlargement remedies, these numbers do not map up with the numbers of men who actually have a significantly smaller penis than average,” Veale says. “So, these men are worrying about – and seeking solutions for – a problem they do not have.”
Is It Actually Effective? There’s conflicting evidence about this, and it’s mainly anecdotal. Some reports suggest success, but more suggest permanent damage was incurred as a result of the procedure. The only major medical research body to give this topic any real consideration eventually decided that there was no evidence that the penis can be permanently enlarged, and that most men would not want to go ahead with the surgery if they knew the risks and dangers involved.
“Big Al and I are kind of the kings of the male-enhancements space,” explains Michael Salvini (aka “Double Long Daddy”), the namesake of the aforementioned DLD Blaster reverse kegel and founder of the natural penis enlargement website MattersofSize.com. (The $159.95 “Maximum Gains Package” includes a lifetime membership to MoS forums; “the World’s First and Only Penis Enlargement DVD”; MoS Titan Pills “to intensify your workout by 200%”; and a patented stretching tool “to get the most intense stretch possible out of every workout.”) “We’ve been around since the beginning, and there’s really nobody else out there who survived.”
Herbal remedies, Kegels (pelvic floor exercises — learn more here), and exercises have all been mentioned as potential ways to make your penis bigger. However, we’ve searched and searched for medical evidence that these techniques will work to grow your penis, but there’s simply zero, zilch, nada, no evidence. You may find lots of unverified anecdotes, which come from a sample size of one, but they simply cannot be trusted. After all, no one on the internet knows you’re a dog (or liar). We recommend that you avoid these techniques.
