I am 35 years old and wanting a circumcision revision with removal of frenulum.
My circumcision scar line is uneven and has suture marks.
I would like for the scar line to be even. Without the obvious suture marks and with the frenulum removed.
Dr. Reed do you use stitches or glue for this surgery? I am also wanting to know if you give the injection that induces a erection?
I have read that a induced erection helps to make sure to much skin is not taken. Also I have read that sometimes people have a option between sutures and glue.
If you need any pictures of the area I will send them to you. Just let me know. Any help is greatly appreciated.
Good afternoon Gary,
Thank you for your interest in what we do. Your penis is one of the
most important cosmetic and functional features of your body. Please see
before and after photographic examples of our work
We have performed over 8000 cosmetic circumcisions and revisions
in the past 35 years and usually do several cases every week.
While we have medicine in the office to induce a “pharmacologic”
erection, we hesitate to use it before surgery as the effect may last
to a certain extent for a few hours. Enhanced blood flow in the pen.is means greater potential for bruising and intraoperative bleeding.
Instead I will meet with you before surgery and can provide some
adult magazines and privacy, after which I’ll knock on the door. and pre-
mark you with your approval. In the operating room we do the circumcision
with your penis on traction, which simulates to a certain extent your erect length.
I do not use glue but rather fine delicate fast absorbing sutures
and a 2 layered closure which glue cannot provide. Sutures
should be removed about the 12th post-op day. If not 10% of
patients will have permanent cross hatch marks. I cannot promise
you a noticeable circumcision scar
We have done sons of physicians, brothers, religious circumcisions,
men who have not seen the heads of their penis for 20 years! This
is your circumcision and we do it the way you want with respect
to 4 parameters.
Please don’t be like the patient done elsewhere who writes: “Dr. Reed I just got circumcised two days ago and my result was not what i expected. I was wondering when i recover can i get a consultation with you.” Photos sent
and received (unspoken comment “disaster zone”)
Be assured we will show you every courtesy,
Harold M. Reed, M.D.
