The preputial frenulum is a mucous membrane on the ventral aspect of the glans penis, through which the frenular artery runs, and acts as a natural "retractor" of the foreskin on the glans penis.
The length and thickness of the frenulum is a congenital characteristic that varies greatly among patients*.
As our surgical schedule indicates, frenectomy will only be performed if the patient presents any symptomatology, preferably under local anesthesia, starting at the age of collaboration.
