Penile Frenuloplasty

Penile Frenuloplasty or Frenular Tether

Some men experience pain due to a tight band of skin located between the shaft and the head of the penis. If the band of skin (called the frenular tether) is too tight, it can cause pain during erection and bleeding during sex due to micro-trauma.

A Tight Frenular Tether Can Lead To:

  • Pain and discomfort with erections
  • A tight and curved section of the penis with erection
  • Penile pain or bleeding during sex
  • Restricted movement of the foreskin 
  • Loss of erection due to discomfort

Penile Pain or Bleeding During Sex

When the frenular tether is tight or too short, it can result in excessive tension during erections, which can rip and tear during sex. A torn frenular tether can heal with scar tissue that is less flexible, causing further difficulties and discomfort.

Some men suffer from pain and bleeding during sex their entire adult life, unaware that there is a cure. Any man experiencing discomfort during intimacy should have a consultation with an Aesthetic Urologist to end unnecessary tightness and pain with erection.


Frenuloplasty to Resolve Penis Discomfort

A frenuloplasty is a minor surgery that can alleviate the pain associated with a tight frenular tether. During surgery, the tight band of skin is released for an increased penile range of motion and enhanced sexual pleasure. The procedure, typically completed within 20 minutes, is performed using a long-acting local anesthetic and generally results in instant relief after a brief recovery period.
