Researchers have found that non-surgical
methods like penile traction, penis pump and peno-scrotal rings were more
effective than surgical procedures in extending the penis length. Surgical procedures
can be dangerous with an 'unacceptably high' rate of complications.
Traction method is reported to have an
average increase of 1.8 cm in men who followed 6-hours of traction per day for
4-months. The average increase was 2.3cm while in a flaccid state and 1.7cm
when erect if men followed 4-hours of traction per day for 6-months.
The use of the penis pump which uses
vacuum to stretch the organ was found to be effective if used for a 6-month
'Peno-sctroal' rings which fit
around the organ may help to augment the size of penis and maintain erections.
Scientists pointed out that increase
in length did not lead to any changes in the thickness of the organ.
The study was conducted by Italian
scientists at the University of Turin and has been published in the journal of
British Association of Urological Surgeons. For this purpose they reviewed 10
relevant literatures on surgical and non-surgical methods for 'male enhancement'.
