In brief: Under local...

Skin bridge after circumcision does happen infrequently and usually carries no functional concern.
Most of times, patients like it divided for cosmetic reason, which can be done under local anesthesia at office. But occasionally, it may be extensive so more procedure is needed just like redoing a circumcision. So, see doc and decide what is needed, but still a minor procedure.
