Frenulectomy: Hello. A lingual frenulectomy may be performed in a few different ways. Flaps can be developed to perform the procedure or just a simple clamp and snip of the membranous tissue with a sterile scissors. As your doctor to describe his/her technique and make sure you are comfortable that all your questions and concerns have been addressed before you sign consent. Good luck.
