Penis Traction Device Frequently Asked Questions

On this page you will find some frequently asked questions and answers about penis traction devices.

What Is A Penis Traction Device?

A penis traction device is a piece of equipment designed to apply a continuous pressure, or stretching force known as "traction," to the entire penis in order to lengthen and enlarge it. It applies pressure to the penis by means of adjustable, calibrated bars that sit between an anatomically curved base fitted comfortably at the root of the penis. A surgical-grade band slips onto the glans (head) of the penis to hold it in place. As the penis increases in length, the traction device can be adjusted to compensate for the distance. This device is designed to be worn discreetly under the clothes and can also be worn while sleeping.

One of the most popular and effective models available today is called SizeGenetics™ which was invented by renowned plastic surgeon Dr. Jorn Siana. You can read more about this device on the penis device review page.

How Do Penis Traction Devices Work?

The traction device fits on the penis and creates a gentle stretch by applying continuous pressure by means of calibrated expandable bars. This stretching creates spaces between penile tissue cells and triggers a growth/healing response in the body. Adjacent cells then begin to divide and fill in the spaces created. With continued use, this growth process can effectively generate new cells by the millions and significantly add size and tissue to the area.

Is Penis Traction Medically Approved?

Absolutely! Traction is a well-known and documented technique widely used to help the healing process after events like surgery, injury, trauma and burns. Basically, traction is defined as gently stressing tissues by gradual stretching thereby allowing the body to rebuild itself naturally. Some instances where traction is used include:

  • For mastectomy patients who require expansion of the skin and muscle in the chest prior to reconstructive surgery.
  • For penis enlargement surgery patients who employ traction to help heal, strengthen and straighten the penis.
  • For burn patients who can create their own skin grafts by means of traction which "stretches" or enlarges an area of tissue prior to transplant.

Should I Use A Penis Traction Device?

There is no definate answer to this question. You need to examine your own reasons for desiring a larger penis. Are you willing to make a committed effort and to invest the time it takes to increase your penis length and girth, or can you be satisfied with what you have now? If you do decide to proceed with the use of a traction device make sure you are dedicated to its use and follow its instructions carefully.

Are Penile Traction Devices Safe?

For many men even the thought of using some sort of mechanical contraption on their penis is terrifying. To be honest there is reason for concern as there are many ripoffs and fakes available from less than reputable companies. Some of these products can even be dangerous. Unfortunately this has given a bad name to the penis enlargement medical category in general.

In order to feel safe when using such a device, you first need to make sure you've done your research. My own extensive research is available to you right here on this website. I've discovered which companies have been around for the longest, where their devices are manufactured and whether they're backed by studies and medical practitioners. I've looked into guarantees, warranties, viewed testimonials and read comments from other users of many of the products available. Hopefully you will find the information I've gained informative and helpful in making your decision and using a safe device.

Once you feel confident in the device you've chosen your next step is to make sure you only use the device as directed. Some men harm themselves by over-using the device, figuring that "more is better" and employing a "no pain, no gain" attitude. The traction device when used properly should produce no more than mild discomfort, if any. The parts of the device should not have sharp edges, tight grips or cause excessive pressure when used correctly. Traction does work, but follow the instructions carefully.

How Long Do I Have To Use The Penis Device?

The results you can expect from using a traction device are in direct proportion to the amount of time, amount of total traction force, and length of treatment itself. Most clinical studies of the device examined men who used the device for 8 - 10 hours a day over a course of 3 to 6 months, and every instance showed measurable penis growth. Results can be obtained with a different schedule, however, and each man's specific results will vary.

Most men can incorporate the use of the device into their existing schedule, either by wearing the device during work hours (for non-physical types of jobs) or during evening hours of relaxation or even sleep. You will be able to determine the practice that works best for you but you should always stay within the guidelines established by the medical designer of the device as much as possible.

Will I Get A Huge Penis Using A Traction Device?

While the traction device method has been documented in creating giant sized penises, the typical man using a device at home most likely only wants an impressive, not "freakish" gain in length and girth. Though extreme gains are possible, the likelihood of injury increases if the product is not used in accordance with guidelines and common sense.

Why Is The Penis Traction Device So Expensive?

A quality traction device, like the one provided by SizeGenetics™ for example, is a genuine, medical apparatus. In addition to costly research and development, these devices are manufactured to precise surgical-grade specifications to ensure safety and effectiveness. A device with this degree of quality control and calibration tolerance is expensive but well worth the cost. After all, when you consider how you will use the device, would you really wish to cut corners?

Are All Penis Enlargement Devices Guaranteed?

No, many are not. Some manufacturers use substandard materials and others simply aren't around long enough for dissatisfied customers to ask for a refund. So even if they "offer" a guarantee, by the time a duped customer returns with a complaint, the company has already vanished. These unscrupulous companies have unfortunately given the public a negative perception of male enhancement products.

To be sure of getting a good product, make sure the company has been around for a while and that they offer a rock-solid guarantee with a money-back promise. Only companies with excellent products and happy customers who order again and again can stay in this business for very long. The supplier of the SizeGenetics Device™ is one such company.

Is Penis Traction Treatment Appropriate For Me?

All men who would like to strengthen and increase the size of their penis are good candidates for this type of treatment. Men who have an embarrassing or disruptive curve to the penis (medically known as Peyronie's Disease) benefit from the use of this device as well. In fact, this doctor-designed traction device is used in hundreds of clinics and hospitals around the world specifically for the treatment of Peyronie's.
