Best option to treat chronic phimosis

Dr. Reed, Been suffering from phimosis for many years with acute inflammatory episodes and tearing.  What circumcision style would you recommend?  Ned

Dear Ned,

For sure the scarified tissue has to be removed, so you may not have a high  circumcision.  You could still have a circumcision style. There is a concept called a preputioplasty but I don’t think the outcome is cosmetically appealing.  Please visit our web-site for before and after phimosis surgery pictures.  See figures #10 through #13. You’ll probably say “I wish I had done it sooner.”
