Penile Frenuloplasty

A frenuloplasty procedure is different in that it lengthens the frenulum instead of removing it. The result is similar in that both procedures will relieve the discomfort caused by a short frenulum. Our doctor will consult with you on the recommended procedure for your penis, and expected outcomes, so that you can make an informed decision and get optimal results. 

Tight Frenulum – A Cause of Penile Pain & Bleeding During Sex – Frenulum Breve

The frenulum of the penis is a band of tissue located underneath the penis. When the frenulum is tight or short, this is called a frenulum breve. This can result in tension on the frenulum during erections, which can rip and tear during vigorous activities such as sex, causing pain and bleeding, which in turn can cause men to lose their erections.

 

Some men go through their entire lives suffering from pain and bleeding unaware that there is a cure. The degree of tightness and thickness of the frenulum varies from man to man, but any man affected by an overly short frenular band should seek a consultation for a possible procedure to end uncomfortable tightness with erection. The issue can be addressed by removing or lengthening the penile frenulum. 

Frequently Asked Questions

A Tight Frenulum May Cause Premature Ejaculation

Lifelong (primary. Lifelong premature ejaculation occurs all or nearly all of the time beginning with your first sexual encounters.

Acquired (secondary). Acquired premature ejaculation develops after you’ve had previous sexual experiences without ejaculatory problems. Some studies report that a short frenulum is found in up to 43% of individuals affected by premature ejaculation. It is thought that the frenulum plays an important role in penile erection and when frenulum tension exceeds a certain limit, orgasm and ejaculation may be accelerated. When the frenulum is lengthened, penile tension and sensitivity may be decreased. Penile frenulectomy has been shown to be effective in some but not in all cases of premature ejaculation (see source study).
