How old should you be to get a frenuloplasty?

Just wondering how old should you be to get a frenuloplasty since i think i may have to get a frenuloplasty since my frenulum is tight and won't let my foreskin go beyond the head when my penis is erected.

Re: How old should you be to get a frenuloplasty?

It may be that your frenum is normal, and your foreskin is a bit tight and this can be sorted by stretching, see the following [url]http://www.healthboards.com/boards/showthread.php?t=210347[/url]

It may also be that you think that the foreskin needs to go further back than you can get it, so check some general anatomy of the penis just to be sure.

In answer to your original question, I would have thought you could have it done at any age but you would need parental consent under the age of 18. As you are in the USA the doctors tend to be a bit circumcision-happy, and perform this as a routine answer to any penis problem so unless you want this be careful. If you are offered this, then come back here and ask for more help before you agree.

Ill try out the stretching like you said and i also checked out the anatomy of the penis like you said. According to the site i checked out [deleted] it seems like i cant get the inner foreskin layer to show when my penis is erected.

If you have checked out the anatomy, then you should know what it should be like, although surprisingly not all men are the same when it comes to their penises and foreskins. Give the stretching a go for a while and see what happens.

Good luck

I would suggest the stretching exercises, and waiting until you are sure your penis has finished growing before having a frenuloplasty. I don't think it's an age thing, but more a matter of if it's finished growing.
