SST deformity and frenulum breve

Dear Dr. Reed,

I have a tight frenulum and although somewhat noticeable when flaccid when erect this exaggerates the downward tilt of my head.  Would removing the frenulum correct this?


Dear Bernhart,

95% of the time yes.  The SST derformity named after the Concord jet in my practice is 95 + % of the time related to a frenulum breve or short frenulum (think overly tight) and can be corrected by removing all the tethering scar tissue not just on the obvious surface but below.  If this does not work, then during the same anesthetic, sutures on the top side of the penile shaft can be placed like reins on a horse to bring the head in alignment with the axis of the shaft.
