Here are some ...: For most of the cases, the adhesion between foreskin and glans penis can be tediously separated with skillful surgery in conjunction with modified circumcision if gentle manual separation with topical use of steroid cream fails to separate. For technical detail and realistic expectation, ask the intended surgeon - urologist - timely.

A urologist can help: If you can break the adhesion by gently pealing back the foreskin, then you may wish to see a urologist who may be able to by using a topical anesthetic in the office. Sometimes, if the adhesions are extensive, a small surgical procedure may be necessary.

See urologist: If you have foreskin still attached, you would have to have foreskin removed from the head of your penis by a urologist. It is not damage anything, but doesn't hurt to retract foreskin or cause a problem when you have an erection? if so definitely see urologist.
