Q12. Are there alternatives to penis enlargement surgery?
A12. Yes but not all of them are effective. In some cases, the ‘self-help’ options work which include trimming excess pubic hair to reveal the penis or losing weight. Diet and exercise can make a big difference.
There are non-surgical options such as vacuum pumps, herbal tablets, attaching weights to the penis and electrical/magnetic devices which promise to stimulate growth. Hormone therapy using steroids is another option. These are all marketed on the internet as well as in various magazines targeted at men.
The problem with these is that they are marketed at a captive audience but there is no scientific evidence that they benefit in the long term. You need to sift out what works from what is pure hype.
Some of these work on a temporary basis but do not appear to show a sustained benefit.
