A vacuum device for penile elongation: fact or fiction?
BJU Int. 2006 Apr; 97(4):777-8.BI

Abstract

OBJECTIVE

To assess the efficacy of a vacuum device as a noninvasive method for penile elongation.

PATIENTS AND METHODS

Between September 2003 and November 2004, 37 sexually active men with a stretched penis length of <10 cm were given vacuum treatment three times a week, for 20 min on each occasion, for 6 months.

RESULTS

After 6 months, the mean penile length had increased from 7.6 cm to 7.9 cm (no significant difference). The efficacy of vacuum treatment was approximately 10%, and the patient satisfaction rate was 30%. There was one case of haematoma of the penis and one of glans numbness, both resolved spontaneously without any intervention.

CONCLUSION

Vacuum treatment of the penis is not an effective method for penile elongation, but provides psychological satisfaction for some men.
