Are the results of a penis pump permanent?

One of the most frequently asked questions around penis pumps is how long do the effects last, and do they create a permanent growth? The answer is slightly more complicated than the question might suggest, and it depends on what kind of product you use, and what you hope to achieve through use.

Penis pump

The VVI Medical Penis pump operates by using a vacuum to increase blood circulation to the penile area, to enhance, strengthen and prolong an erection. Though penis pumps are effective in over 95% of cases, the effects are non permanent. The effects generally last for around 30 minutes, but the pump can be used frequently. Over 40% of men who use vacuum therapy report being able to have intercourse again without using the pump every time.For those who use the penis pump to increase length rather than to treat any penile dysfunction or prolonged erection, you can expect to see an increase in penis length and girth for a temporary period whilst using the product.

Penis extender

VVI Medical also sell penis extenders, which offer a more permanent solution to those looking for penis growth. The penis extender functions very differently from the penis pump. It is made up of chrome and stainless steel high quality metal parts, with two unique, soft silicone comfort straps for the penis. When used frequently over a number of months, the penis extender can enable the penis to stretch to over 9 inches. The extender stimulates the growth of tissue in the penile shaft, and this allows penis growth to occur through frequent use. The device is worn in the flaccid state for a period of 2-5 hours a day, over a period of 4-6 months - depending on the growth desired. By doing this, users can expect to see a permanent increased growth of around 0.5cm per month. This means a permanent lengthening of the penis of both when erect and flaccid, and a thickening of 1 - 2 inches in girth.
