Penile skin bridge

Dr. Reed, Had a circumcision as a child and the rim of the glans does not show on the underside.  Is it possible it was removed or needs to be exposed?  Frank

Dear Frank,

The most common reason fo the rim of th glans not showing is called penile synechia or fusion of the foreskin to the glans which was not separated or reattached after neonatal circumcision.  Under local anesthesia we can start where the rim is clearly seen and spread the skin apart on the underside.  Then please apply an antibiotic ointment for about 2 weeks or so until the raw area epithelializes.  This is minor surgery.  Similar approach is used for penile skin bridges and penile tunnels.  (Unroofing).
