Penile frenuloplasty surgery typically takes 10-15 minutes to perform. It is a relatively minor procedure that can be done under local or general anesthesia.
During the surgery, the surgeon will make a small incision in the frenulum and then lengthen it by suturing the two sides together in a different way. Once the frenulum has been lengthened, the surgeon will close the incision with stitches.
After surgery, you will be able to go home the same day. You may experience some discomfort in the area for a few days, but this can be managed with over-the-counter pain medication. Your stitches will dissolve on their own within a few weeks.
The duration of penile frenuloplasty surgery can vary depending on several factors, including the complexity of the procedure, the surgeon’s experience, and the specific needs of the patient. However, on average, penile frenuloplasty is a relatively quick surgical procedure, and it typically takes around 20 to 30 minutes to complete.
The surgery may take more or less time depending on the extent of the modification needed to address the patient’s specific frenulum issue. In cases where there are additional concerns or concurrent procedures (such as circumcision or other genital surgeries), the overall surgical time may be longer.
