Some men experience pain due to a tight band of skin between the shaft of the penis and the glans on the underside of the penis. It can occur in both circumcised and uncircumcised men. It can cause pain with erections or bleeding during sex due to micro-trauma.
A frenulectomy is a specialized technique that treats this condition by removing the tight restriction, allowing increased penile skin range of motion and sexual enjoyment.

Frenulectomy or Frenuloplasty to Resolve Penis Discomfort
A frenulectomy is a procedure that can alleviate the pain often associated with a tight band of tissue between a penis’ shaft and the glans on its underside. A tight frenulum can exist independent of whether a man has been circumcised, and it can create a tight and curved section of the penis that is susceptible to micro-trauma, causing bleeding and painful erections.
The frenulectomy procedure involves the removal of the restricting tissue for increased range of motion in the penis and enhanced sexual pleasure due to the end of pain with erection. The procedure (done in under 20 minutes) is performed using a long-acting local anesthetic and generally results in instant relief after a brief recovery period.
A frenuloplasty procedure can lengthen the frenulum and thereby relieve the discomfort causes by a short frenulum. Our doctor will consult with you on the recommended procedure for your penis, and expected outcomes.
Cost of Frenulectomy and Frenuloplasty
The cost for frenulectomy is $2200, with $400 as a deposit to hold the appointment and the balance of $1800 due on the day of the procedure. We do ask our patients to pay in full at the time of service.
We do not take insurance for the procedure.
It is our experience that insurance does not cover the cost of a frenulectomy procedure. Most insurance companies have a disclaimer that says they will only pay for procedures that are “reasonable and necessary”. Despite how the patient may feel about the necessity of this procedure, the insurance companies usually do not considerate it to be medically necessary and they do not pay for it. Thus, the medical group is not affiliated with any insurance companies and does not file insurance claims for the procedure.
Financing is available through Care Credit, including the possibility of a payment plan that is interest free for 6-months. Please call the clinic during business hours for more information
Please note that the deposit is non-refundable. If you do cancel and reschedule 7 days or more from the date of your appointment, the deposit will apply to the cost of the procedure. If you cancel 6 days or less before the originally-scheduled appointment and you wish to reschedule the appointment then you will need to pay a new deposit. We have this policy out of consideration for other clients who may have wished to schedule in that time slot but did not have the opportunity because it was held for you. If you cancel very close to the appointment, someone else did not have a chance to schedule in that time slot.
