James Elist's Penuma, which comes in sizes L, XL and XXL, is a silicone sleeve that's inserted under the skin of a man's penis to make it longer and thicker. Men have desired larger penises probably since Adam compared his to the evil serpent who convinced Eve to take a bite of forbidden fruit a metaphor you've never thought of until now, right?

The silicon sheath hasn't garnered the FDA's full approval, but has been granted a k permit , which "clears" the device for commercial distribution and qualifies it as safe and effective. While having a monopoly on his silicone penis enlargement sounds pretty darn lucrative on its own, Elist is currently pushing for the FDA to approve his product for sale so that other professionals can perform the procedure.

Here's a visual that shows how the surgery works: Things to know about Penuma and the procedure: Penuma grows the penis by an average 2 to 2. Many men mention embarrassment or self-consciousness while in the locker room or when they are with their partner. You may feel a longer penis would improve your self-esteem and self-confidence.

The surgery increases the non-erect length of your penis and, to a lesser extent, the erect length. The average gain in length is 4 cm 1. The surgery is done under general anaesthetic. Release of the internal part of your penis is done by dividing a ligament holding it in place. In addition, a muscle technique is used to ensure the long-term effectiveness of the surgery. Sometimes, liposuction to the area above your penis will be recommended if this area is too full and is masking the full length of the penile shaft.

You will have to pay attention to special instructions in order to keep the extra length gained during the operation —specifically, you will need to wear weights and wrap your penis for 12 weeks. This is done during the day only and is inconspicuous in regular clothing. Most men require 1 week off work, but this varies with the job.
