Foreskin problems

A tight foreskin, particularly during erection, can be painful and lead to splitting, scarring and bleeding. This is called a phimosis and a simple sleeve technique circumcision can be performed under local anaesthetic with good results.

If the foreskin is healthy but the frenulum is tight this may result in splitting and can be easily fixed with a local anaesthetic frenuloplasty.

In both cases dissolvable stitches are used and there is little post operative pain and discomfort. I offer a 'see and do' service by reviewing photos via email prior to the consultation, which reduces time and cost.
