Reversible Penis Augments: Biopolymers Designed to Offer More Options

There is never a shortage of advertisements or spam for "penis enlargement" methods. If someone actually invented a safe, inexpensive, natural feeling method that worked--how much money could they make?
Engineers are always searching for materials that display unconventional properties able to satisfy the severe requirements for implantation in the body....The mechanical properties of these polymers make them extremely attractive for many biomedical applications. These so-called shape-memory polymers can be temporarily stretched or compressed into forms several times larger or smaller than their final shape.

Then heat, light or the local chemical environment triggers a transformation into their permanent shape....“My lab studies how altering the chemistry and structure of the polymers affects their chemical, biological and mechanical properties,” said Ken Gall, a professor in the George W. Woodruff School of Mechanical Engineering, who described his research in this area during two presentations at the Materials Research Society’s fall meeting.

...the warmth of the body triggers the polymer’s expansion into its permanent shape, resulting in natural deployment without auxiliary devices. This work was published in the journal Biomaterials earlier this year.

Particular attention must be paid to the biofunctionality, biostability and biocompatibility of these materials, which come into contact with tissue and body fluids, according to a Georgia Institute of Technology press release. Also, polymers more closely resemble soft biological tissue and can be designed to gradually dissolve in the body.

Although the polymers in the article above were designed for other purposes, one can easily see how they could be customised for use in small-to-large, soft-to-hard tissue augmentation.

Future developments would require the development of a reversible bio-polymer, that would change shapes and sizes based upon remote control signals. Of course, if the remote control gets lost behind the cushions inside the sofa at an inopportune time, you may have difficulty sustaining the mood in your partner until you can dig it out.
