Frenuloplasty in Thailand

Frenuloplasty is a male surgical treatment that involves re-suturing a short penile frenulum along its length.

An operation that involves cutting and lengthening your frenulum, which is a little tag of skin on the bottom of your penis that connects your foreskin to the shaft. If the frenulum is short or torn, you may have difficulty pulling your foreskin back.

The problem is in the foreskin. The foreskin is a sleeve of loose skin that surrounds the penis’ bulb end (the glans). One end of the sleeve extends from the base of the glans. The other end freely lays over the glans, protecting it.

The foreskin can be very closely attached to the underside of the penis. This might result in discomfort, pain, or mild bleeding during intercourse.

During this procedure:

The surgeon will employ either local or general anesthetic, depending on the patient’s request.

The surgeon cuts a straight line on top of the frenulum, pulls it into a diamond shape, and stitches in the middle.


If you have a general anesthetic, you may feel dizzy and exhausted when you return home. Please rest for the rest of the day and the next day to aid with recuperation. You might also have:

You should expect some swelling and bruising at the wound site. There may also be some seeping yellow fluid.

Stitches will disintegrate or fall out on their own approximately 14 to 21 days following the operation. Some of the stitches may take up to six weeks to disintegrate. They do not have to be removed.

A dressing over the wound will usually slip off on its own and does not need to be renewed. If the dressing does not slip off on its own, you can remove it in the bath or shower the day after surgery.

It is possible that you will experience bleeding from the foreskin, but this is infrequent. If cleaning is necessary, use a clean towel to press firmly on the area for 15 minutes. If it does not cease, you will need to visit your local A&E department.

Sexual intercourse:

Please refrain from having sexual intercourse for six weeks following the operation. This will:

Help your wound heal.

Help prevent infection.

Help reduce the danger of bleeding.
