Scars Around Inner Tight
What can be done for a tight ring of scars on the tip of forskin of adult males? It's tight enough to stop the skin from sliding back when erect.
Scar on Foreskin: See your urologist for scar revision. Traditional corrective surgery is done via circumcision. If you are not concerned about cosmetics, a simpler procedure called a dorsal slit can be utilized. In this operation the foreskin is left intact but an incision is made through part of the prepuce so as to release the foreskin totally in the midline almost to the rim of the glans penis. ...Read more

I've a tight hymen. My gynecology scheduled me for a hymenectomy. I'm afraid. Will it cause a scar? & will I bleed a lot? How long the procedure take?

My son was circumcised when born, now has erection that bend upwards where the scar is on dorsal side. Too much skin was removed? It is very tight.
I assume your son is: An infant or young child. Show your pediatrician. Rarely, foreskin is cut to the point that intercourse is painful for a male, which wouldn't be an issue prior to puberty. If you are really concerned, request referral to a pediatric urologist to determine if there is any anatomical malformation of the penis that would cause your son to have a medical problem. ...Read more

Sometimes an injection of cortisone can help the healing- ask your surgeon. ...Read more
