In brief: Skin removal

The foreskin is removed with circumcision.
No skin is removed with a dorsal slit, also known as a prepucioplasty, or foreskin preserving procedure. Traetment ment for phimosis or tight foreskin. A vertical midline incision is made on dorsum of penis thru the narrow area, until skin can retract easily. Vertical incision is then surured transversely, and thus foreskin is preserved.
