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. A tight frenulum can exist in both circumcised and uncircumcised men and can create a restriction that is susceptible to micro-trauma, causing bleeding and painful erections. A penile frenulectomy is a specialized technique that treats this condition by removing the tight restriction, allowing increased penile skin range of motion and sexual enjoyment.
At Gentle Procedures clinics, the procedure is performed using a long-acting local anaesthetic and generally results in relief with a brief recovery period.
Recovery from penile frenulectomy is fairly fast and painless.
