Frenulectomy or Frenuloplasty to Resolve Penis Discomfort
A frenulectomy is an in-office procedure that can alleviate the pain sometimes associated with a tight band of tissue between a penis’ shaft and the glans on its underside.
A tight frenulum can exist independent of whether a man has been circumcised, and it can create a tight and curved section of the penis that is susceptible to micro-trauma, causing bleeding and painful erections.
The frenulectomy procedure involves the removal of the restricting tissue for an increased range of motion in the penis and enhanced sexual pleasure due to the end of pain with erection.
The procedure (done in under 20 minutes) is performed using a long-acting local anaesthetic and generally results in instant relief after a brief recovery period of several days.
A frenuloplasty procedure is different in that it lengthens the frenulum instead of removing it. The result is similar because both procedures relieve the discomfort caused by a short frenulum.
Our doctor will consult with you on the recommended procedure for your penis (and expected outcomes) so that you can make an informed decision and get optimal results.
