It is based on the ability of the penile tissues, when submitted to a force of traction, to grow and multiply. The same principle of traction is applied for tissue expansion in plastic surgery, to produce skin re-growth in order to cover skin defects, burns and balding areas. The regeneration of new tissue can be used to repair and cover skin defects, burns and areas of hair loss. It is also used in orthopedic surgery to enlarge the ends of bones and phalanges. In ancient cultures the principle of traction was applied to enlarge different parts of the body.
In the same way, a penis extender applies a traction force of up to 600 to 1500 grams on the penis over sustained periods of time. The described traction causes an adaptative reaction of the penile tissue components at structural level, with an increase in cellular multiplication of the penis tissues leading to a gradual, progressive increase in both length and girth of the penile tissue.
Based on the clinical experience, the traction-based penis extender device yields the following results:
An increase in the length of the penis in erection and flaccidity
An increase in the girth of the penis in erection and flaccidity
