A simple procedure which involves the division of the band and resuturing in the opposite direction can be performed under local or general anaesthetic. This is called a frenuloplasty.
The procedure is relatively straightforward. Apart from mild discomfort, the sutures will dissolve spontaneously after about 3 weeks. The foreskin should be retracted gently on a daily basis to stop the frenulum from reattaching. A change in the sensation on the head of the penis may occur after the procedure. If the frenuloplasty does not resolve the problems, circumcision may be required.
At LMC a specialists group of consultants can provide an expert opinion and perform the procedure under a local or a general anaesthetic.
