Penile Frenulectomy

Penile Frenulectomy

Penile frenulectomy and frenuloplasty are procedures that can alleviate the pain associated with a tight band of tissue connecting the glans to the shaft of the penis on its underside. When the frenulum is tight or short this is called a frenulum breve.

It can occur in both circumcised and uncircumcised men. It can cause pain with erections or bleeding during sex due to micro-trauma.

A frenuloplasty procedure can lengthen the frenulum and thereby relieve the discomfort causes by a short frenulum.The procedure involves the removal of the restricting tissue for increased range of motion in the penile skin and enhanced sexual enjoyment and is performed using a long-acting local anesthetic. It can provide instant relief with a brief recovery period. No hospital visit is required and the simple surgery is performed in our clinic.

Our GP will consult with you on the recommended procedure and expected outcomes.
