Penile Frenulectomy and Frenuloplasty (also know as release of frenulum)
An abnormally short or sensitive frenulum of the penis can make sexual activity uncomfortable or even painful. When it is a naturally occurring event, a short frenulum can restrict normal retraction of the foreskin during erction (a condition known as frenulum breve). The goal of treatment is to allow normal retraction of the foreskin.
Another reason for the treatment is to correct a rare complication of a frenulum breve which presents as scars on the frenulum. These scars cause pain and make normal sex very difficult and are caused by the rubbing of the frenulum whilst engaging in sexual activity. These scars only effect those with frenulum breve. The Frenuloplasty can be conducted under local anesthesia.
