Do you recommend my frenulum be removed when I have an adult circumcision?

Dr. Reed, Do you recommend my frenulum be removed when I have an adult circumcision?  Steve

Dear Steve,  The decision is yours and there is no extra fee, and the added time is about 2 minutes to level it out and sew the edges back together.  If you have downward angulation of the head of the penis with erections, that is called frenulum breve (or short frenulum, or SST deformity) and of course I’d recommend it be removed.  You’re under circumcision anesthesia already. The stories about loss of sensitivity with frenulum removal are just stories.  I have never had a patient see me whose frenulum has been removed either at birth or as an adult complain they lost sensation in that area.  Remember a circumcision is just about removing skin.

Please visit our web-site for a gallery of before and after pictures of adult circumcision. Also consider the various circumcision styles (cut, tightness, obliquity of the incision)  We’ll try to accommodate.
