Peyronie’s Disease Mechanical Modelling
When first diagnosed with Peyronie’s disease, many individuals attempt penile stretching or modelling (straightening the penis during an erection).
Mechanical modelling is an essential part of the first stage of treatment in order to break the plaques, and it is also very important to follow post-treatment in order to prevent penile retraction and further loss of length, reduce any residual curvature, and increase penile blood flow, which aids in the post-treatment healing process.
Vacuum pump therapy for 10 minutes twice a day
- Pump the penis gradually (but don’t overdo it once it’s erect)
- Leave the erection on for 30 seconds.
- Deflate and restart (5 times)
Penile stretching exercises – entail softly and progressively stretching the penis till it reaches its maximum length (10 times). Some patients find it difficult to utilise a penile stretching device for 4-8 hours (the longer the better) per day.
Penile self-modeling – entails gently straightening the penis each time you acquire an erection.
Your doctor will show you how to use mechanical self-modelling and when to begin following your treatment.
