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 cause pain with erections or bleeding during sex due to micro-trauma.
A frenulectomy (also known as Frenectomy) is a specialized technique that treats this condition by removing the tight restriction, allowing increased penile skin range of motion and sexual enjoyment.
Frenulum Breve – A Cause of Penile Pain and Bleeding During Sex
When the penile frenulum is tight or short, this is called a frenulum breve. This can result in tension on the frenulum during erections, causing tearing during vigorous activities such as sex. Pain and bleeding caused by tears will, in turn, result in a loss of erection.
Some men go through their entire lives suffering from pain and bleeding unaware that there is a cure. The degree of tightness and thickness of the frenulum varies from man to man, but any man affected by an overly short frenular band should seek a consultation for a possible procedure to end uncomfortable tightness with erection.
If you are suffering from Frenulum Breve, our procedures could be the solution for you.

The Frenulectomy Treatment Process
A frenulectomy is a specialized technique that treats this condition by removing the tight restriction, allowing increased penile skin range of motion. It is done under local anesthesia at our Montreal clinic and takes only about 20 minutes to perform. The goal of the procedure is functional, so that the tight frenulum is released, allowing the possibility for improved sexual pleasure without fear of pain or bleeding.
No, unfortunately a short frenulum generally does not get better on its own. Some physicians suggest stretching exercises, but the frenulum is a rather tough tissue that is not easily stretched. A frenulectomy is usually necessary to remove the tight band of tissue in order to release it from the rest of the surrounding tissue.
We perform frenulectomy under long-acting local anesthesia. Men who have undergone this procedure usually describe it as virtually painless.
- Swelling and bruising at the site of the procedure 1/100
- Infection requiring antibiotics 1/500
- Bleeding (usually mild) 1/100
- Scarring at the site of the operation 1/100
- Meatal stenosis due to injury to the frenular artery requiring a meatotomy (rare) 1/500
- Suboptimal cosmetic or functional effect requiring a second procedure 1/100
- Chronic pain at the site of the surgery 1/500
- Vasovagal reaction causing light-headedness after the procedure. 1/200
Recovery from penile frenulectomy is fairly fast and painless. Most men do not require additional pain medications after the procedure and are able to return to office work the next day. If your work requires heavy or physical activity, you will need a few more days off.
We generally recommend no sex for at least 5-6 weeks to allow the surgical site to heal optimally and sutures, if required at the time of the procedure, to dissolve.
After a frenulectomy, because the tight band is released, sex can become more pleasurable due to less pain and worry from tearing and bleeding.
Frenulectomy does not affect your foreskin and you will remain uncircumcised. Because frenulectomy only involves releasing the tight band of tissue underneath the penis where it attaches to your foreskin, your foreskin will be preserved.

Mental and emotional health can be key factors in sexual wellness. Stress, anxiety or depression can impact libido, and a man or woman’s ability to engage with their partner. Seeking assistance from a mental health professional may help alleviate the underlying causes of the condition. The Elna Sexual Wellness Center offers sex therapy services.
P-SHOT PRP THERAPY
The use of a man’s own blood factors to boost sexual response carries no heart-related risks. The injection floods the penis with regeneration cells that immediately begin revitalizing muscle, tissue and nerves. The therapy is non-invasive, with no side effects.
MEN’S SHOCKWAVE THERAPY
Erectile dysfunction can be treated with low intensity shockwaves that open constricted blood vessels in the penis. The treatment restores the blood flow that allows for spontaneous erection upon arousal, with no drugs or side effects. Shockwave therapy is now available for ED.
Circumcision is a simple procedure in which the foreskin that covers the head of the penis is removed. Circumcision can be performed on men of any age. Some men choose circumcision based on religious or culture beliefs, while for others, it is a solution to health conditions or cosmetic concerns.
