The frenulum is a cord-like structure that links the foreskin with the glans penis. The frenulum tear makes the frenulum more tight or inflexible. This frenulum tear is dealt with by the surgery called frenuloplasty. Dr Vineet Malhotra is the best Urologist for Frenulum tear treatment in Delhi. You can book an appointment with him here. The frenulum tear occurs when a part of the skin that connects the foreskin to the glands is smaller in size than it should be. This creates pain and gives a feeling of stretch while pulling the foreskin back or while having an erection.
In case of severe tear, frenuloplasty is required in which the frenulum is cut to free the skin.
First of all, anesthesia is given and the penile area is cleaned and disinfected. After that, a tiny cut is made on the frenulum and it is drawn back in the desired shape. The tissue is spread out apart in a diamond shape, Z shape, or in various other shapes most of the time. This area is then sewn in that particular position. Surgical glue is also used nowadays that remove the need for stitches. After that, the patient can go home after a while. Frenuloplasty takes about 30 minutes, and the patient can go home the same day.
