If you're a man who is worried about the girth and length of your penis and how it will affect your relationship and self-esteem, there are numerous treatments available. Each treatment method is different and offers its own set of pros and cons. It's up to you, as the consumer, to decide which option is best for you.

Treatment options include:

  • Penis Extenders
  • Male Enhancement Supplements and Medications
  • Penis Pumps
  • Surgical Implants
  • Penis Exercises

Out of the options listed above, penis extenders and, to a lesser degree, penis pumps are the only clinically proven, non-surgical techniques that have shown to be effective on a permanent basis.

Surgery isn't 100% effective and, in rare cases, it can cause serious side effects such as a decrease in penis size, infection and erectile dysfunction. Supplements are also known to cause adverse reactions and are rarely effective long term.

How Are Penis Pumps and Extenders Different?

Whereas penis extenders use traction over a long period of time to promote cellular growth and thus lengthen the penis, penis pumps work by using suction to stretch the penis. While these two methods are similar, penis pumps are most likely to cause serious injury when misused and do not have the scientific research to back them up.

How do Various Devices Differ?

Not all penis pumps and extenders are created equally, which means it is important to be selective when purchasing a product. Here are some key factors to keep in mind:

  • What types of attachments are there?
  • What materials are used?
  • Are there any notable endorsements?
  • Is there a risk-free guarantee that the product is effective?
  • What is the manufacturer's safety record?

Attachments – How are they Important?

The most important factor in whether or not a male enhancement tool is effective is how the penis is held in place within the device. With penis pumps, the materials should be soft enough to eliminate chafing but sturdy enough to hold the penis in the correct position.
When it comes to penis extenders, a lot more comes into play. There are two major options, flat pads or comfort straps. Flat pads are less desirable because they are more likely to cause pinching and discomfort and require constant re-adjustment to ensure the proper tension. Comfort straps are more secure and can withstand more tension.

Materials – The Good, Bad and the Ugly

The second most important factor is what materials are used. The more sturdy the material, the more stable the device will be but you also need it to be forgiving so as not to cause irritation. Medical grade materials are the best option since they do not corrode and they are typically more comfortable and safer than cheaper materials

Endorsements – Who Believes in this Product?

Every manufacturer claims to make the best device on the market so how do you know who is being honest? Safe and effective devices should be clinically tested and fully endorsed by a medical professional. If a device isn't endorsed, then don't waste your money or put your manhood at risk.

Guarantees – What are the Financial Risks?

The easiest way to gauge a company's faith in its product is to check out their money-back guarantees. If they are confident that they are offering a quality product, then they should have no problem making your purchase 100% risk-free. If the device you are considering doesn’t offer a guarantee, then it is best to keeping looking.

Safety Record – Staying Safe

One of the easiest things you can do when looking for a male enhancement tool is to check out the manufacturer's safety record. A simple Google search will typically yield a ton of results and you can easily get an idea of how safe and effective a product is. Always read reviews and ask questions. You'll be glad you did.
