Frenectomy / Frenulectomy: Enhancing Comfort and Function through Frenulum Modification 

Dr. Michael Read, a highly experienced and renowned surgeon with over 30 years of expertise in vasectomy, circumcision and frenectomy procedures. With a focus on patient comfort and optimal outcomes, Dr. Read has established himself as a trusted professional in the field. Whether you’re considering a vasectomy or a frenectomy, Dr. Michael Read’s wealth of experience ensures that you’re in capable hands.

Here, we will explore the topic of frenectomy or frenulectomy – a surgical procedure that involves modifying or removing the frenulum. The frenulum is a small band of tissue found on the underside of the glans(head of the penis), that can sometimes cause discomfort or restrict movement. We will delve into the procedure itself, its benefits, and the conditions that may necessitate a frenectomy. 

Understanding the Frenulum:

The frenulum is a thin band of tissue that connects the underside of the glans (head of the penis) to the inner foreskin. This structure plays a role in the functionality and movement of the foreskin during sexual activity. When the frenulum is tight, short, or restrictive, it can lead to discomfort, pain, or difficulty during sexual intercourse or other intimate activities. Modifying or removing the frenulum through a frenectomy procedure can help alleviate these issues, allowing for improved comfort and enhanced sexual function. Dr. Michael Read specialises in addressing frenulum-related concerns and offers personalised solutions to ensure optimal outcomes for his patients.

Conditions that May Require a Frenectomy/Frenulectomy:

Frenulum-related Discomfort: A tight or restrictive frenulum can cause discomfort or pain. This may be experienced during sexual activity or other movements. A frenectomy can alleviate these symptoms by modifying or removing the problematic frenulum.

Mobility Limitations: Some individuals may experience limited mobility due to the presence of a tight or short frenulum. This can affect their sexual experiences and overall comfort. A frenectomy can help improve mobility and enhance sexual function.

The Frenectomy / Frenulectomy Procedure:

During a frenectomy, Dr. Michael Read carefully assesses the patient’s specific condition and determines the most appropriate approach. The procedure aims to modify or remove the problematic frenulum, allowing for increased comfort and improved sexual function.

Benefits of a Frenectomy / Frenulectomy:

Enhanced Comfort: By addressing a tight or restrictive frenulum, a frenectomy can alleviate discomfort or pain experienced during sexual activity, leading to increased comfort and pleasure.

Improved Sexual Function: A frenectomy can enhance sexual function by allowing for improved mobility of the affected area, enabling better stimulation and a more satisfying sexual experience.
