Penis enlargement: Myth or truth?

Penis enlargement

There are so many shady websites making claims to find you the potion that will increase your penis size. Then there are brands promising you to increment in size via exercises, supplements, and whatnot. Which then raises the important question: do these penis enlargement techniques work?

The size complex

Due to the bruhaha surrounding the size of the penis, many men become complex about their size. Myths run amok, but there is little factual data to support the claims about the average size and its link to sexual performance.

The average penis size, when erect, is around 6 inches when erect, and when flaccid is about 3.6 inches. The difference between a flaccid and erect penis is also not set in stone.

However, if your penis size is less than 3 inches when erect, that is not normal and is referred to as micropenis. In this case, you can then seek the help of the Sexologist in Lahore.

The enlargement techniques

There are many different types of products and interventions that are touted to improve the size of the penis. Let’s analyze each one of them to find out if they are a myth or truth!


Jelqing is a type of exercise that involves stretching the penis. It involves pulling at the flaccid penis using the thumb and index finger. The stretching is thought to help in increasing the blood supply to the penis.

However, jelqing is not effective. It may even lead to scar formation, disfigurement, and even pain.

Pills and lotions

These pills and lotions contain a wide range of products like vitamins, minerals, herbs, hormones, etc. that are supposed to increase the size. However, the reality is far from it There is no scientific data that these concoctions can help in improving the size of the penis.

Some of the pills and lotions also tend to contain dangerous compounds like lead, pesticides, and even animal feces. Hence, do not fall into the trap of these pills and lotions. They will not work!

Vacuum devices

These devices work by placing a tube over the penis. These then involve pumping out air to then create a vacuum, that encourages the flow of blood to the penis. It then makes the penis swell as a result.

Vacuum devices are often used in cases of erectile dysfunction or impotence. They do not increase the penis size per se. They just aid information of erection. There is no research yet that links the use of vacuum devices to increased penis size.

Moreover, these devices damage the elastic tissue of the penis over time. It then leads to fewer firm erections.

Penis surgery

Penis surgeries are also done to improve the size and girth of the penis. For improved girth, fat from another part of the body is taken and then injected into the penis. It may increase the circumference of the penis by 1.4 to 4 cm. However, in the long term, it may lead to problems like scarring, infection, lumpiness, and disfigurement.

Likewise, the length can be increased by attaching a ligament to the penis. It does not, however, affect the size of the erect penis.

Penile extenders

Another alleged trick to improve the size of the penis is using weight or a form of traction device. This is thought to help in increasing the size by stretching the penis.

The efficacy of these devices is still debated. According to some research, penile traction devices can improve the size of the penis by 1 to 3 centimeters. Some studies have also considered their performance similar to the surgeries as well.

However, more comprehensive research is still needed to prove the effectiveness of these devices. Furthermore, they are also not considered to be completely safe either.

You should therefore consult your Sexologist in Hameed Latif Hospital before deciding to use these devices.
