Frenuloplasty: How to prepare

0 Comment

There will be some steps you need to follow in order to prepare for a frenuloplasty. Read more to find out more.

Pubic Hair

There is no need to completely shave your pubic hair, but it is desirable to trim it fairly short. This aids asepsis during the operation and prevents hairs from becoming painfully trapped in the bandaging afterwards. Trim your pubic hair a few days in advance of the operation to allow time for the cut ends to soften again.


There will be a period of up to six weeks after frenuloplasty when you will not be able to indulge in sex. It is desirable therefore that you reduce your desires beforehand. On the morning of the operation either have sex with your partner or masturbate to climax.


Do not take any alcohol, whether with or without a meal, prior to the circumcision as it can dehydrate you and may reduce the effectiveness of the local anaesthetic.


On the morning of the frenuloplasty ensure that you take a good bath or shower and pay particular attention to your genitals. Retract your foreskin as far as you can and clean well under it. Immediately before the time of the circumcision empty your bladder.


Adult men after the frenuloplasty should bring a pair of tight-fitting briefs to wear afterwards which will keep the surgical dressing in place. Continue to wear these at home until the swelling and soreness have eased.

Eat and Drinks

If you are having a local anaesthetic, eat and drink as per normal. Keep your fluids going as this will ensure that you are well hydrated.


If you smoke, then stop as this interferes with the healing of the wound. Smoking can slow this down and your recovery in general so stop smoking before your surgery.

Time off from work

Arrange time off school/work from 2-7 days.
