Circumcision Frenulum Removed
Very difficult: Circumcision reversal in adults is a major surgical procedure. It can be performed by using remaining shaft skin as a foreskin and covering denuded area of shaft with a skin graft. There are very few urologists or plastic surgeons willing to undertake such an operation. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
I have undergone a penile frenectomy, but the skin under the frenulum is still tight. When erected, foreskin barely retracts over the glans. Options?
How to remove foreskin without circumcision n sex? I want to remove foreskin over glans and explore glans?
Remove or preserve?: Physically stretching a tight foreskin over the penile glans can only lead to skin splitting, then scarring and ending up with a worse problem. Steroid cream, such as Betamethasone , when applied twice daily for many weeks to the tight area may loosen things up. 50% will tighten up again after applications cease. Alternative is a minor dorsal slit through the tight area, this preserves foreskin. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
It sort of depends: With an erect penis, there would be no difference in size, as the foreskin would be naturally retracted by the erection. With a flaccid penis, the uncircumcised penis would be a little bit longer than the circumcised one, as the foreskin would extend a bit beyond the head (glans) of the penis. Functionally, there would be no difference. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Very briefly.: An indwelling ureteral stent is removed in one of two ways. A quick pull on a little string to pull it out of the urethra, or by using a flexible scope to enter the bladder and pulling out the stent with forceps. Both can cause bladder discomfort and some flank pain as it is quickly removed. Some residual pain can linger for a day or two. Pain can be variable with many feeling no pain. ...Read more
Reasonably: It is considered an outpatient procedure, so it is reasonably safe; that being said, all surgery (and all medical intervention!) has its own set of risks, so make sure to discuss this with your surgeon before the procedure. ...Read more
Many possibilities: Perhaps sutures removed too soon, perhaps you have delayed healing related to any of a number of factors such as renal failure, diabetes, poor nutrition, smoking, perhaps there is too much tension on the wound, perhaps underlying infection. Best to see your doc. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
After circumcision is it better to have more inner or outer foreskin? Is inner foreskin above scarline? Should frenulum remain after circ?
21yr don't have phimosis and can retract foreskin to base of glans. but there's excess foreskin.i don't want circumcission. any problem in sex life??
You don't have one: Your question says you are circumcised, which means you don't (any longer) have a foreskin, it was removed. Not all males have a distinct color/texture change at the transition point, and you may be one of them. Next routine physical you could check with your dr if still curious. ...Read more
Had nesbit procedure. Flaccid penis still curved and also still rotated post-op (suspensory ligament division also done)? Was surgery unsuccessful?
Without an exam?: I am sure you can understand, but no physician will be willing to give you any valid medical advice in this specific situation without an examination. Remember that post operative time is very fraught with the risk of complications and all treatment problems or even treatment failures must be discussed or communicated with the surgeon. Your surgeon sent you home with instructions on how to do this ...Read more
6 days since my circumcision (frenulum was removed as well). Starting today, there has been blood coming out of my penis hole. Is this normal?
The frenulum was also removed during sons infant circumcision. How much sensation is now lost? Will he be able to achieve orgasm when he gets older?
Circumcision: There should be no problem with future sexual satisfaction. Circumcision is an elective procedure. But I am not sure what you mean by frenulum. Do you mean the connection on the underside of the penis between the foreskin and penis? During circumcision this is not removed but the foreskin is peeled back from it. This occasionally can cause bleeding. ...Read more
Does circumcision reduce sensitivity? I read that rigid band and frenulum are most sensitive part of penis. And these are removed during circ.
Yes and no: Obviously sensitivity is lost in skin removed after circumcision, but glans penis (most sensitive part of penis) is exposed to more friction ; thus more overall sensation when no longer sheathed by foreskin. Frenulum is very sensitive, but not necessarily pleasureable, thus removal during circumcision, which i do, does not adversely affect the subject. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
I recently got circumcised. Frenulum was removed too. Will that cause problems? Shaft skin is very tight, normal? No loose skin. I have no pain though
I recently have been circumsised and noticed thst the frenulum hasnt been removed. I wanted a full circumsion, should my dr have cut it? Can he still?
Probably but Why: Cutting the frenulum will greatly decrease sensitivity. While it is often done when an infant is circumsized, most try to avoid it. The frenulum has a tremendous number of nerve endings in it that greatly add to pleasure and sensation and you did have a "full circumcision" even if the frenulum was not cut. Still, ask your surgeon/doctor if you are not happy with what they did. ...Read more
About penis frenulum: The frenulum of one's penis is just another normal part of his body, like his earlobe is. The penis frenulum possesses neither good nor evil... it's just a normal part of the penis. As with all other parts of the body, one should take gentle care of his frenulum, and things will be just fine. ...Read more
If not too tight: Has lots of sensation which can be pleasurable. However can be uncomfortable or even painful ; liable to tear if remains after circumcision and is tight. Similar to a bowstring. Some men are happy to have retained their frenulum ; others feel the opposite. Important thing about an adult foreskin is have just right amount of skin removed. Urologist should be able to decide whether to keep frenulum. ...Read more
No it isn't: In most cases a frenuloplasty will take care of the problem. Basically the frenulum is divided transversely ; sutured vertically. This moinor procedure can be performed under local anesthesia in the office. Local anesthetix cream can first be applied 30 - 40 minutes before local anesthetic needle is painlessly inserted. Or as a day-surgery procedure under general anesthesia. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Son had a high circumcision and looks like frenulum is missing? Mogen clamp. Very concerned he will lose lots of sensation when he is older.
I was circumcised 2weeks ago the sutures came out on second day post circumcision. I was given povodine to use when cleaning the wound. Is the wound going to heal nicely and join together ? Am scared the wound is too big down the frenulum.

My frenulum tore during sex a few months ago and is still quite sore. I went to a urologist who recommended a circumcision. Is that too much for this?
Too much: All you need is is a frenulotomy or frenuloplasty which is a simple procedure which can be performed in the office under local anesthesia. Good formula is:- apply of 4% Lidocaine cream, 30 minutes later inject a little novocaine, which will be painless. Then incise frenulum transversely ; suture it vertically. Takes care of problem ; preserves foreskin ; all without pain. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
