When the mass of abnormal tissue is removed, this can cause a damaged urethra and other deep penile issues. The techniques to increase length include the cutting of a structure called the suspensory ligament of the penis, often followed by the use of penile weights and other stretching devices. Sometimes distinguishing between a fat sheath and a swollen sheath can be difficult. When the ligament is cut in, this alters penile support and causes a low hanging penis, and scarring forms. Do you routinely clean the horse's sheath? Horses that urinate into their sheaths tend to have dirtier sheaths and more problems with swelling.
While some techniques are hoaxes, others may be somewhat effective, perhaps at high risk of complications. Some surgical methods have the most evidence of effectiveness, whereas others have fairly frequent complications, sometimes severe, including scarring that lead, ultimately, to penis shrinkage or erectile dysfunction.
Because of great risk and uncertainty, medical professionals are generally skeptical of penile enlargement and avoid attempting it. There are several surgical treatments, most of which carry a risk of significant complications.
The AUA also considers the division of the suspensory ligament of the penis for increasing penile length in adults to be a procedure which has not been shown to be safe or efficacious. Penis-enlargement pills, patches, and ointments are sold online. While some products contain ingredients generally recognized as safe , others contain questionable ingredients, sometimes undisclosed.
Physical techniques involve extension devices, hanging weights, and vacuum pressure. There is also significant overlap between techniques intended to enlarge the penis and techniques intended to achieve other, related objectives, such as reversing impotence, extending the duration of erections, or enhancing sexual climax. Commonly called a "penis pump", a vacuum erection device, or VED, creates negative pressure that expands and thereby draws blood into the penis.
Performed on the halfway tumescent penis, jelqing is a manual manipulation of simultaneous squeezing and stroking the shaft from base to corona. Also called "milking",  the technique has ancient Arab origins. Traction is a nonsurgical method to lengthen the penis by employing devices that pull at the glans of the penis for extended periods of time. As of , the majority of research investigating the use of penile traction focuses on treating the curvature and shrinkage of the penis as a result of Peyronie's disease , although some literature exists on the impact on men with short penises.
In in Vietnam, many Vietnamese men attempted self penis enlargement by injecting liquid silicone into their penises, and subsequently suffered from complications such as infections, necrosis , tumors, swelling, deformities, sexual dysfunction, and were hospitalized.
