The frenulum of the penis or preputial frenulum is a skin fold that is covered by the foreskin.
When the frenulum is too short it restricts the movement of the foreskin, which causes discomfort during sexual activity.
When the penis is erect and the frenulum is too short, it causes the penile-glans head to swerve downwards. This causes pain, difficulty in penetration and may even be torn and bleeding.
These tears on healing can shorten the frenulum further and aggravate the situation.
Dr. Ricardo Hoogstra performs this procedure with local anesthesia, which is well tolerated by the patient.
After the anesthesia is applied a minimum incision of the frenulum is made with Carbon Dioxide Laser.
Reabsorb able suture is use which fall on their own after 14 days.
The procedure takes 10 minutes. At the end, the patient continues his normal life.
The procedure is not painful, nor is recovery.
It is recommended not to have sex for 20 days.
After this the patient will have a normal life and sexuality.
