Frenulectomy and Frenuloplasty Procedures
Frenuloplasty this is an operation to cut and lengthen the frenulum, which is the small tag of skin on the underside of your penis, between your foreskin and the shaft of your penis. If the frenulum is short or torn, it may be problematic to pull foreskin back on the penis.
The corrective procedure usually involves the removal of the frenulum (Frenulectomy) or involves the creation of an incision in the frenulum that is then stretched to lengthen it and suture closed (Frenuloplasty). The incision can be z-shaped, y-shaped or a single horizontal cut. Once healed, the procedure effectively elongates the frenulum, allowing normal function. Under normal circumstances the incision heals completely in around six to eight weeks, after which time normal sexual activity can resume.
