The side effects of lengthening surgeries are numerous and include infections, nerve damage, reduced sensitivity, and difficulty getting an erection. Perhaps most disturbing, scarring can leave you with a penis that's shorter than what you started with. Widening the penis is even more controversial. Side effects can be unsightly -- a lumpy, bumpy, uneven penis.
Penis extenders and traction devices are other options often advertised to make your penis bigger, and they are designed to stretch the penis by exerting traction on it. One small study done on 23 men saw a small increase in both flaccid penile length and stretched penile length after using a penile extender . Another small study on 15 patients saw more significant gains in length after six months of using penile extenders, along with improvements in erectile function . It’s important to note that both of these studies are very small, and while they look promising, further studies on penis extension and penis stretching are needed.
Though generously endowed by nature and confident enough in his body to have appeared in some adult films in his 20s, O’Connor decided to enhance his girth in 2013. “It was just something I fancied,” he says with a shrug. “Some men have hair transplants or belly tucks. I wanted a truncheon in my pants. My whole life I’ve enjoyed impressing women; this was just an extension of that. You could call it a gentlemanly thing to do.”
In recent years, researchers at the University of California School of Medicine injected the penis of diabetic rats with adipose tissue-derived stem cells, and the results were the improvement of erectile function as well as an altering of the microarchitecture of the corpus cavernosum with an increase in the number of endothelial cells in this area . Simply put – the rats had harder erections and more tissue. It’s thought that the growth factors caused this improvement, and these are the same types of growth factors found in PRP injections.
Other tips for preventing penis shrinkage such as stopping smoking and optimizing blood flow to the penis may not have a lot of studies to back them up, but we do know there’s a relationship between healthy blood flow and sexual health. Taking measures to maintain blood flow throughout the body, which includes quitting smoking, may not specifically prevent shrinkage but can promote overall sexual health and wellness.
When I was younger around 18-19 I was really insecure about my penis size, mostly because I watched A LOT of porn and thought that every girl could only get off with a mandingo sized dick. This obviously led to a lot of insecurity about my penis size which was average at around 5.5″. So one day I remember seeing one of those porn site ads “grow your penis up to 8″ in a month!” and figured what the hell a month is no time at all and I’ll have a monster dong in 4 weeks! So I went to the site and bought one, $120 if I remember correctly which was a lot of money for me at the time. I remember ordering and then canceling the order about twice out of fear, then I guess I finally said screw it, ordered it and walked away.
Cock Rings. These rubber donut-shaped devices tightly encircle the erect penis. Typically used to help maintain erection, they also provide a small--temporary--size boost. Flaccid or erect, blood circulates in and out of the penis. One of the veins that carries blood out runs close to the organ's skin (on top). A ring restricts outflow somewhat by compressing this vein. Don't expect miracles. Any effect is modest and temporary.
NONE of these methods has been shown to be effective (or safe) by any reputable scientific studies, and none have been approved by medical institutions or government agencies. Some of the ads punting such products may claim that they are backed by scientific research, but a little digging will quickly show that such research is highly dubious. You can’t trust customer testimonials either.
Dermal fillers or surgery are a way to increase penis size. “I do a lot of dermal fillers simply because many men, understandably, don’t want to go under the knife. Consistent with other nonsurgical procedures which use dermal fillers, male enhancement works by way of injection. Depending on the patient’s goals, a filler is chosen and then injected into the corpus cavernosa of the penis. The filler is then worked through the penis to achieve a uniform increase in length and girth. Dermal fillers are an excellent option for male enhancement because they require no downtime and patients can return to sexual activity the same day. Filler are less of a risk than surgery and, because they are temporary, carry no long-term undesired effects," says Dr. Mirza.
Added to that, she says, is the popularity of shows such as Love Island where objectification comes as standard. In the summer of 2017, one male contestant was described as having “a penis like a baseball bat”; it was, unequivocally, a compliment. None of this objectification is new, of course: it’s just new for men. “But that doesn’t lessen the impact,” Gregory says. “For the individual who is going through the trauma of fearing his penis is too small, this is still devastating.”
Men dealing with erectile dysfunction (ED) have a higher risk of dealing with penile shrinkage. One study that included 1,027 adult men looked at normal adult men and ED patients with no differences in height, race, weight, and age. The ED patients have a significantly shorter penis length, showing an association between ED and shrinkage . Another case-control study also found that both diabetic and nondiabetic men with ED dealt with a decline in penile dimensions, and the decline was even more prevalent in diabetic patients . Working with your doctor to find an effective treatment for ED may help prevent shrinkage due to ED, and if you have comorbidities like diabetes along with ED, effectively managing both may be important to prevent a decline in penile dimensions.
“Many men think that the hardest and thickest they can get it just by letting nature take its course and when that blood reaches the penis they get an erection and it ends there. I don’t think that’s the case. It’s like working out in the gym. You will have a whole different workout and your muscles will respond (and look) differently when you have taken a pre-workout, creatine or some other supplement — your pumps will be bigger and your muscles will look fuller. Well the same goes for the penis: if you pop a pill or pump it with a hydro or air pump, you will surely see a difference,” says Debois. The Extenze is one of those popular penis/erection supplements.
Richard, a mechanic from upstate New York, is a muscular, athletic guy. He has a loving wife who has always enjoyed their sex life. But ever since he was a young boy, Richard couldn't get over the feeling that his penis was too small. In public bathrooms, he'd use the handicapped stall. He felt embarrassed in gym locker rooms and when standing naked before his wife. "I didn't feel manly enough," he tells WebMD.
O’Connor says he had no concerns beforehand (“My main worry was having the anaesthetic – I’m scared of needles”) and no regrets afterwards. The pain was manageable and there were no complications. He views the procedure as akin to working out. “I’m not obsessed by my body – I have too many other things going on in my life,” O’Connor says. “But I’m proud of it and I like that it’s in good shape – every part of it.”

He married, had children and learned to live with his unease. Then, four years ago, after separating from his wife, he asked a new partner how he measured up to her ex-husband. “It was a stupid question,” Alistair admits. “It’s pathetic that I cared at my age – but I did. To start with she told me it was fine, but I kept pushing and, eventually, she just told me: his was bigger.”

"Some men are confused (or rather not as educated on the matter) and they believe that the outside skin get’s longer and thicker. That’s false. However, some men have false expectations; they think using a penis pump once will cause them to have a bigger penis permanently, and that’s false. As in the gym example before, you have to keep at it, and you have to practice to see results. Yes, early on you will see results like any newbie in the gym, but if you don’t keep at it you will see those results diminish,” says Dubois.
