(FAQ) Foreskin restoration with purse string suture | The Reed Centre for Ambulatory Urological Surgery | Miami

Dr. Reed,  I favor foreskin restoration and have been working at it with a penile uncircumcising device (PUD).  Most of the time now I’ve got half of my head covered.  I believe you can put a purse string suture in the tip of my loose foreskin this will do the rest.  Bernie

Dear Bernie,  I am aware of the purse string suture suture concept, but advise against it, as you may not be able to retract your foreskin for daily hygiene.  Our approach is more involved, but based upon  followup with several of my patients, I can assure you, that this time honored technique also works and covers your glans with a retractable foreskin.  Take a look at before and after photos of foreskin restoration on our web-site penisdoctor.com/before-after-foreskin-reconstruction

Cordially,
