Penile Frenulectomy Winnipeg

Penile frenulectomy winnipeg is a surgical procedure that can alleviate the discomfort associated with a tight band of tissue connecting the shaft to the glans on its underside. This problem exists in both circumcised and uncircumcised men and can be a significant source of pain with erections, bleeding during sex, and loss of sex drive. Fortunately, this problem is easily corrected with a quick and minimally-invasive operation.

Often, the frenulum becomes too short, especially in uncircumcised men. It can then rip during vigorous activity or become susceptible to small micro-trauma, which leads to painful intercourse and can cause the head of the penis to curve downward in a condition called “chordee.” A short frenulum can also cause a condition known as hypospadias, in which the urethra is located in an unusual place at the base of the penis.

A doctor can remove the frenulum or lengthen it in a surgery called a frenulectomy, which is generally very safe for patients of all ages. There are different types of frenectomies, depending on the location and severity of the problem. Labial frenectomies are often performed to address issues with the upper lip and may be recommended for infants, children, or adults who have a tongue-tie (frenulum that restricts tongue movement). Lingual frenectomies can be used to improve speech, eating, and oral function in individuals with a lingual frenum that is too tight.

While stretching exercises and steroid creams can help stretch the penile frenulectomy winnipeg, these methods are not always effective and are generally too slow to result in a significant improvement. It’s important to consult a doctor who is experienced in this area to determine if the frenulum is too tight, and what type of procedure would be best for the patient.

To perform a penile frenulectomy, the doctor will start by applying a local anesthetic to the affected area to ensure you won’t feel anything during the procedure. Then, he will cut the frenulum with surgical scissors or a scalpel and suture the site. Most patients can return home the same day. After the procedure, you’ll need to wait a few days before sex, but your discomfort will soon subside. During this time, it’s important to drink plenty of water and eat well. To avoid getting lightheaded during the procedure, it’s a good idea to take two tablets of extra-strength acetaminophen prior to arriving at the clinic. If you are easily lightheaded, you should bring someone with you who can drive you back to your home after the procedure.
