The International Society for Sexual Medicine reviewed several of the studies that evaluated the effectiveness of PTT for people with Peyronie’s disease, and they concluded that the technique is generally safe.
However, it is important to note that the number of these studies is limited.
Researchers have reported mild side effects, including:
- numbness in the head of the penis, the glans
- skin discoloration skin
- mild pain and swelling
Manufacturers of these devices generally advise people to start slowly, in terms of how much traction to use and how long to wear the device. Once a person gets used to the device, they can wear it longer and use more traction. Always follow the manufacturer’s instructions.
Besides PTT, someone looking to increase penis size could try:
- Natural remedies: Various lotions, vitamins, herbs, minerals and hormones claim to increase penis size. However, there are currently no proof that they work.
- Pumps and vacuum devices: These draw blood into the penis, which can help treat erectile dysfunction, but they do not permanently change the size of the penis.
- Operation: It is an expensive option. Surgery can increase girth or length, but there is a risk of complications and changes in the angle of the erect penis
