Frenuloplasty is a term given to the surgical alteration of a frenulum when its presence hampers the normal range of motion between interconnected tissues. A frenulum is a tissue present beneath your penis, that resembles a bridge of tissue connecting your foreskin (a thin layer of skin covering the penis glans) to the head of your penis (glans). This urological procedure is performed for a short penile frenulum that may restrict movements of the penis, causing pain during erection and sexual intercourse. Frenuloplasty is done under local or general anesthesia by dividing the skin and re-stitching it lengthwise.
Frenuloplasty is a surgical procedure that involves removing the frenulum or creating an incision (cut) on the frenulum to stretch and lengthen it. It also removes the excess skin to create a more aesthetically satisfying result while restoring the functionality of the penis at the same time.
The procedure is usually performed under general anesthesia, as a daycare surgery. A large incision is made that is either Z-shaped, Y-shaped, or a single horizontal cut.
Recently, laser frenuloplasty has emerged as an advanced, minimally invasive (does not involve extensive incisions or bleeding) alternative to the traditional frenuloplasty that facilitates shorter hospital stays, minimal bleeding, quick recovery, and reduced post-op complications.
A frenulum is a band of connective tissue that connects the foreskin to the glans of the penis and is the most sensitive part. A short frenulum can cause restricted movements during sexual intercourse and may also be prone to tears.
Preoperative preparation is an important component of a surgical procedure that helps prevent any complications during or after the surgery.
Frenuloplasty is an outpatient procedure which means you will not require hospitalization and will be sent home the same day.
Frenuloplasty is a daycare procedure; hence you will be sent home once you recover from the effect of the anesthesia and can walk. However, an overnight hospital stay may be necessary if the wound is bleeding.
Frenuloplasty is the most effective and standard treatment that helps lengthen the penile frenulum. The procedure offers benefits such as:

If the frenulum is completely cut off due to a tear, then it cannot regrow. Scar tissue can be seen forming in the area with hard patches on the skin. However, if the frenulum is not cut off completely due to partial tears, there are chances that it can heal.
You cannot prevent congenital frenulum breve. But you can avoid penile disorders that lead to frenulum breve by the following preventive measures:
A frenulum tear usually does not cause any serious or long-term complications. However, it is a very painful condition that needs to be treated surgically.
Frenuloplasty surgery is the lengthening of a short and tight frenulum of the penis. It is generally a safe procedure, with a high success rate and minimal complications in most cases. Most patients are satisfied with the procedure; very few may require complete circumcision.
