VED: Vacuum erertion devices draw blood into the erectile chambers of the penis and create an erection by engorgement. This engorgement is as temporary as any erection. It is unlikely to make the size of your flaccid penis increase although it will enhance your erect penis size most of the time.

I agree. No pumps, pills or injections can permanently enlarge a post-pubertal penis. Im sorry it's true.
