Some men may not wish to go ahead with circumcision and may be candidates for the so called frenuloplasty.

There are various techniques available for lengthening the male frenulum. The frenulum is the area where the foreskin on the inner surface connects to the glans via a very fine bridge of skin.

In some men this bridge of skin can be very tight and by simply elongating this bridge of skin, the tightness of the foreskin may be reduced during intercourse.

However, there are chances that the frenuloplasty may not work in some men and they may require a full circumcision. This would, of course, be discussed with the patient fully prior to any planned surgery.
