The Penile Frenulectomy Procedure

Penile frenulectomy and frenuloplasty are procedures that can alleviate the pain and issues associated with frenulum breve – a tight penile frenulum.

The procedure involves the removal of the restricting tissue for increased range of motion in the penile skin and enhanced sexual enjoyment.

At Buenafe Clinic, the procedure is performed in under 20 minutes using a long-acting local anesthetic, and has a brief recovery period.

Penile frenulectomy has been shown to be effective in some but not in all cases of premature ejaculation, as well as offering permanent relief from pain with erection to men with a short penile frenulum.

Frenulectomy for Premature Ejaculation

Studies report that premature ejaculation is one of the most common male sexual dysfunctions and studies report that a short penile frenulum is found in up to 43% of individuals affected by premature ejaculation.

It is thought that the frenulum plays an important role in penile erection and when frenulum tension exceeds a certain limit, orgasm and ejaculation may be accelerated.

After the procedure is completed, penile tension and sensitivity may be decreased, potentially addressing a cause of premature ejaculation.

The procedure involves the removal of restricting tissue for increased range of motion in the penile skin and enhanced sexual enjoyment.

Conditions Treated

Winnipeg Penile Frenulectomy FAQ

We perform penile frenulectomy under long-acting local anesthesia so there will be limited discomfort during the procedure.  You will have tenderness during the healing period of one to two months.

We generally recommend no sex for at least 5-6 weeks to allow the surgical site to heal optimally and sutures, if required at the time of the procedure, to dissolve.

Studies report that a short frenulum is found in up to 43% of individuals affected by premature ejaculation. There is a strong correlation between a tight frenulum and PE, and frenulectomy has been shown to be effective in some but not in all cases of PE. Our doctor will offer you a personalized assessment.
After a frenulectomy, because the tight band is released, sex becomes more pleasurable due to less pain and worry from tearing and bleeding.
Frenulectomy does not affect your foreskin and you will remain uncircumcised. Because frenulectomy only involves releasing the tight band of tissue underneath the penis where it attaches to your foreskin, your foreskin will be preserved.

Penile frenulectomy has been shown to be effective in some but not in all cases of premature ejaculation.

Procedure Details

01 - Process

Depending on the size and shape of your frenulum, we may employ a scalpel or bipolar diathermy to release it. Once the frenulum is released, we will then assess whether dissolvable stitches will be necessary to approximate the incision.

02 - Duration
The procedure takes about 20 minutes, performed in our clinic under local anaesthesia.
03 - Sensation
We perform frenulectomy under long-acting local anesthesia and those men who have undergone this procedure usually describe it as virtually painless.
04 - Downtime
Recovery from penile frenulectomy is fairly fast and painless. Most men do not require additional pain medications after the procedure and are able to return to office work the next day. If your work requires heavy or physical activity, you will need a few days off.
05 - Side Effects
Potential side effects include infection, bleeding, and suboptimal aesthetic results. It is possible that there will be pain during the healing period.
