One of the most common physical insecurities for men is penis size. The vast majority of men have penises that fall within an inch of average, but that turns out to be little consolation for those of us whose penises are on the shorter side of it. And it doesn’t matter what age you are or how accomplished you feel in every other area of your life – if you feel like you don’t measure up below the belt, it can have a devastating effect on your self-esteem.
There’s an entire industry based around this concern – a new study shows that most men believe that their penises are “smaller than average” – and a bevy of companies promise that they have the products you need to increase the size of your penis along with your self-esteem. One company, Phallosan, offers a product called Phallosan Forte, which they claim will significantly enlarge your penis in both the short and long term. But will it get the job done? Below, we break down whether Phallosan Forte is worth the investment.
- Safe and effective when used as directed
- Arguably the most comfortable device of its kind
- Discreet packaging
- Can be worn inconspicuously throughout the day
- Can be worn safely during the night as you sleep
- Excellent customer service
- Has an app for both iOS and Android
- Expensive when compared with comparable brands
- Must be cleaned regularly to avoid infections
- Initial setup is more complicated than other devices
According to our research and testing, Phallosan Forte is the real deal – you’ll see impressive results in both the short- and long-term for both length and girth, and it’s all based on proven science surrounding the application of penis traction and cell regeneration. Consistent use is key to seeing gains, however, and it can be difficult to commit to wearing devices of this kind for many hours a day. Luckily, the device is comfortable to wear for long stretches even in day-to-day life or while you sleep. If you’re able to afford the price and want to increase your penis size, we can recommend Phallosan Forte.
Innerbody Research recently celebrated its 20-year anniversary online. Over the past two decades, we have helped tens of millions of readers make more informed decisions involving staying healthy and living healthier lifestyles.
We extensively test each health service we review. We try our best to give you, our readers, an unbiased exploration of at-home health services, free of marketing jargon or gimmicks. We evaluate the service based on our adherence to quality, the latest medical evidence and health standards, and a simple question: would we buy the product or service ourselves if it weren’t part of our job, and would we recommend it to family and friends?
Additionally, like all health-related content on this website, this review of Phallosan Forte was thoroughly vetted by one or more members of our Medical Review Board for accuracy.
Phallosan Forte is a penis-enlarging device made by Phallosan, a medical company specializing in men’s health. It uses traction to safely and effectively stretch your penis, which will promote growth and cell regeneration if used consistently over a decent period of time. It can also be used to treat Peyronie’s disease (curvature of the penis) as well as size and potency loss resulting from prostate surgery.
All of the parts you need come in one kit, and it’s designed for everyday use. The nature of this device, with its incorporation of vacuum mechanics, makes it one of the most comfortable penis extenders we’ve tested. It’s suitable even for use while you sleep.
The design of Phallosan Forte makes it one of the more low-profile penis enlargement devices on the market, capable of fitting comfortably and discreetly underneath your clothes. And it comes to your door in a discreet, unmarked package. Your neighbors won’t see a box labeled PENIS-ENLARGEMENT EQUIPMENT HERE.
Is Phallosan Forte legit?
The short answer is “yes.” When researching penis enlargement treatments and devices, it’s important to take any statement a company makes with a fistful of salt and a healthy amount of research. If you search for “penis enlargement” online, you’ll be greeted by a cornucopia of shady companies with names like pornographic superheroes that promise you three inches of growth in two weeks through some combination of snake oil and pseudoscience jargon. Phallosan Forte, on the other hand, is approved by the FDA and uses legitimate, tested methods for penis enlargement, taking advantage of negative pressure dynamics and the application of low amounts of traction to your penis shaft, resulting in growth over extended periods of time.
Another important indicator of quality in a telehealth company is its customer service because no two bodies are exactly the same. You can rest easy knowing that Phallosan’s customer service team is available to answer any questions you might have about Phallosan Forte. The product also comes with a two-year warranty, so you know you’re not going to get ripped off by a fly-by-night company telling you what you want to hear. We do wish Phallosan offered a more robust money-back guarantee, however.
The principle behind Phallosan Forte’s penis enhancement system is the same principle behind muscle-building in weight training – mass increases over time in parts of your body experiencing tiny, painless amounts of rip-and-repair, and your body’s natural cell regeneration processes make it so that forces like penis traction generate length as well as girth. It’s calibrated to apply up to 3kg of traction to your penis. If you want to see more immediate gains, you’ll need to wear it for six to eight hours a day.
A few of our testers, in addition to a large number of Phallosan customers, have reported gains ranging from close to an inch to well over an inch after several months of consistent use. Phallosan Forte comes with a penis-measuring key that allows you to track and take note of your progress. Additionally, Phallosan’s smartphone app will help you maintain your routine and maximize your gains.
Phallosan Forte differs from the vast amount of penis enhancement devices in that it doesn’t use a clamp to separate the head of your penis from the shaft, which can cut off circulation to your penis. Instead, the device uses what could be called a “noose”; it uses a suction cup on your glans that’s carefully attached to a strap that fits around your waist, holding it in place for up to a maximum of 12 hours per day as you move around through day-to-day life. Since it doesn’t cut off circulation to your penis during use, many customers like to leave the device on while sleeping comfortably.
Over time, painless, microscopic tears will appear in the shaft of your penis, which your body will repair using cell regeneration to fill in the gaps left by the stressors applied. Consistent use will increase not just length, but girth, so that you won’t end up with a longer-but-skinnier penis as a result of traction.
Using Phallosan Forte
Every piece of equipment you need comes included in the Phallosan Forte kit, and it also comes with an extensive instruction manual to make sure you’re able to use it properly. We found the manual to be very clear, which was important because this device isn’t as straightforward as some other penis extenders are at the outset.
- Firmly but gently place protector cap over the tip of your penis
- Roll down condom sleeve and while placing the head of your penis into glass bell
- Spread the orthopedic belt while adjusting it to maximum length of penis
- Use measuring tape to measure length of flaccid penis in order to estimate appropriate suction bell size (small, medium, and large)
- Match pump and bell to each other, using arrows on both for guidance
- Pull drawbar on top of the bell over pump and secure firmly
- Turn green valve to pump; activate suction
- Turn green valve to “lock”
- Gently push soft foam rubber ring to base of penis
- Attach belt to end of device
- Adjust at will if any discomfort occurs
How long until you see results?
As with any piece of training equipment, gains in penis size are going to be consistent with the amount you’ve used it and the way you’ve used it. A lot of users have reported that if you use Phallosan Forte consistently for at least six to eight hours a day, you could see consistent gains within the first couple of months – after over a year of use, users have reported gains of one to two inches of length, along with considerable girth increases.
The Phallosan Forte kit costs $499 and includes all of the equipment you’re going to need to begin your penis-enlargement routine:
- An elastic belt that wraps around your waist and connects with a foam rubber ring, which you insert your penis through
- Adjustable buckle
- Belt adapter, which can connect to suction balls
- 3 suction balls, which come in small, medium, and large
- Protector cap
- Tension clip (with tension spring attachment)
- Suction ball with three-way valve
- Comprehensive instruction manual
- Penis-measuring template
- Travel bag
- Two-year warranty
Phallosan Forte is completely safe to use, and it comes with a huge amount of supplemental material that will ensure that you’re able to apply it comfortably without worrying that you’ll experience discomfort or pain.
As with any penis traction device, it’s important to pace yourself when starting out with Phallosan Forte – you’re not going to want to start out using the maximum setting. That level of tension strength is appropriate only once your penis has been conditioned to comfortably respond to larger amounts of traction.

At Innerbody Research, we customize our evaluation criteria depending on the type and nature of the health-related service or product. For Phallosan Forte and other health products, we have five areas that we use for our evaluations, including:
Quality: How well does the company deliver its core service(s) to the customer? For testing services, does the company adhere to the latest and most advanced testing technologies and achieve a very high degree of accuracy? For non-testing telehealth services, is the quality of the service high enough that we would recommend it to loved ones without hesitation? If not, why not?
User-friendly: How intuitive and user-friendly is the service? Does the device, program, app, or website achieve a good degree of user-friendliness for its customers?
Value: Are you getting your money’s worth? Are there any hidden costs or charges? Does the company offer discounts?
Privacy: If health data is stored, will your data be stored securely? Are payments secure?
Customer support: Particularly in situations where ‘one size fits all’ doesn’t make sense, how well does the company help to make the service ideal for you?
