Penile frenuloplasty is a surgical procedure that lengthens the frenulum, the band of tissue that connects the underside of the glans (head of the penis) to the foreskin. It is typically performed to treat a tight frenulum, which can cause pain and discomfort during sex or masturbation.
A penile frenuloplasty can have a small effect on the apparent size of the penis. This is because lengthening the frenulum can release tension on the foreskin, allowing it to retract further down the shaft of the penis. This can make the penis appear longer and thicker.
However, it is important to note that a penile frenuloplasty does not actually increase the length or girth of the penis. It simply allows the existing tissue to be displayed more fully.
One study found that the average increase in ventral skin length after frenuloplasty was 9.78 mm, or about 81%. However, it is important to note that this study only included a small number of participants. More research is needed to confirm the average increase in penis size after frenuloplasty.
Overall, a penile frenuloplasty is a safe and effective procedure for treating a tight frenulum. It can also have a small positive effect on the apparent size of the penis. However, it is important to have realistic expectations about what the surgery can achieve.
Penile frenuloplasty is primarily a procedure focused on addressing issues related to the frenulum of the penis, such as its tightness, shortness, or discomfort during sexual activity. It is not designed to change the size of the penis itself. The primary goal of this surgery is to improve comfort, mobility, and function, rather than altering the overall dimensions of the penis.
The size of the penis, including its length and girth, is primarily determined by factors such as genetics and hormonal influences. Penile frenuloplasty does not involve any alterations to these factors, so it should not have a significant impact on the size of the penis.
