Penis Pumps, Do They Even Work?

Penis Pumps, Do They Even Work?

Also known as a vacuum pump, a penis pump is a contraption used to treat erectile dysfunction on the spot. Sounds great! But how does it work?

A tube is placed around the penis creating a vacuum. The air is then pumped out of the tube, causing blood to flow to the penis, which leads to swelling and an erection.

Penis pump devices are more or less the same. They vary in whether the pump is manual or battery-powered or if there is a seal or ring fitting around the base of the penis. A constriction ring can be placed over the base of the penis to keep the blood inside.

Penis pumps can be great to treat erectile dysfunction on the spot and help men gain their confidence back. They have also been found helpful in maintaining erectile function after prostate surgery or radiation therapy to treat prostate cancer.

Whether they are an effective solution for penis augmentation is a different story.

Can you get permanent gains from pumping?

Despite what penis pump providers might claim, they do not increase your penis size.

What they DO do is increase blood flow to your penis, to help you achieve an erection to have penetrative sex. And when used safely, they can be a great method to achieve this.

But it is not an effective solution to increase your penis size, yes a penis pump may add a little bit of length on the end but it is only temporary and does not provide a lasting effect on the size of your penis. Currently, there is developing research on the combination of penis pumps with a palette-rich-plasma procedure, but we would be hesitant to suggest any benefit from this until there is more scientific research to back this up.

Is a penis pump safe?

If you are fit to use the pump and follow the directions, it can be a safe tool to utilise. However, there can be complications due to the use of penis pumps.

Penis pumps can cause pain, bruising, burst blood vessels, numbness, tingling, discolouration, lack of firmness, unnatural feeling erections or painful ejaculation. With correct use, there is a slim chance of any serious complications if you follow the instructions accompanying it closely.

But at CALIBRE, we prefer other non-surgical solutions to increasing the size and girth of your penis. Our procedures can even be used to treat complications from penile surgery. Our procedures are discreet, non-invasive and effective.

If you would like lasting penis growth solutions, let us tell you what we can do for you. We’d love to be your trusted, non-surgical solution.
