Phallosan Forte is a penis enlargement device. The makers claim that it can increase both length and girth.
The product has generally positive customer reviews. The company’s website cites Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approval, but the FDA does not currently confirm this on its own site.
According to 2020 research, most people looking to change the length of their penises have a length that falls within the common range of 5.1–5.5 inches.
Using a product such as Phallosan Forte may help a person feel more comfortable with their penis size.
This penis extender employs penile traction therapy (PTT) to permanently extend length and girth, the makers say. They also claim that their product may promote more lasting erections.
The manufacturer says that PTT works by encouraging new cell growth and promoting extension.
Phallosan Forte may be suitable for a person who wants to increase the length and girth of their penis.
The company claims that this device may benefit people with penile curvature from Peyronie’s disease.
Trustpilot gives Phallosan Forte a 2.4 out of 5 star rating, based on 16 customer reviews. Less favorable reviews mention poor customer care, not receiving the product, and no noticeable results.
The company does not have a profile on the website of the Better Business Bureau (BBB), and neither does the manufacturer, Swiss Sana AG.
Below, we look at some of Phallosan Forte’s pros and cons.
Many online reviewers, and the makers themselves, acknowledge that using the product may seem complicated at first. Here are the steps:
The company recommends wearing Phallosan Forte 6 hours a day, 5 days a week. Other sites recommend wearing it for at least 8 hours a day.
Phallosan Forte is available for purchase online for $379.
The makers of Phallosan Forte say that it relies on PTT technology. Research is limited, but some studies show that PTT may lengthen and straighten penises affected by Peyronie’s disease.
The makers also claim that the more a person wears Phallosan Forte, the greater the increase in penis length.
Finally, they claim, as do several online reviewers, that Phallosan Forte is FDA-approved, but the FDA’s website does not confirm this.
Research shows that some people with penises of an average size are dissatisfied with it. Some medical names for the anxiety that this can cause are small penis syndrome (SPS) and small penis anxiety. It can lead to:
- low self-esteem
- sexual inhibition
- avoidance behavior
- safety-seeking behavior

The International Society for Sexual Medicine has reviewed several of the studies that have assessed the efficacy of PTT for people with Peyronie’s disease, and they conclude that the technique is generally safe.
However, it is important to note that the number of these studies is limited.
The researchers reported mild side effects, including:
- numbness in the head of the penis, the glans
- discoloration of the skin
- mild pain and swelling

Makers of these devices typically advise people to start slowly, in terms of how much traction to use and how long to wear the device. After a person becomes acccustomed to the device, they might wear it for longer and use more traction. Always follow the manufacturer’s instructions.
Aside from PTT, a person looking to increase their penis size might try:
- Natural remedies: Various lotions, vitamins, herbs, minerals, and hormones claim to increase penis size. However, there is currently no evidence that they work.
- Pumps and vacuum devices: These draw blood into the penis, which may help treat erectile dysfunction, but they do not permanently change penis size.
- Surgery: This is an expensive option. Surgery can increase girth or length, but there is a risk of complications and a change in the angle of the erect penis

Anyone who feels uncomfortable or distressed about their penis size should consult a healthcare professional, particularly if these feelings interfere with their daily life or make it difficult to enjoy sexual intimacy, for example.
If a mechanical extender may have caused any damage, contact a healthcare professional as soon as possible.
Anxiety about penis size is common, even among people with average sizes. This anxiety can interfere with self-esteem, social and sexual activity, and general mental health.
There is little scientific data to support most products’ claims about increasing penis size. But some research suggests that PTT may lengthen and straighten penises affected by Peyronie’s disease.
The makers of Phallosan Forte say that it uses PTT to increase both length and girth, but independent research does not support these claims.
