  • Skin bridge removal

    HI, I was wondering if anyone that has restored or is restoring has a or had a penile skin bridge or adhesion and what you did to remove it. Messeven me I'm 21 and need some kind of answers.

    Some men have done it themselves, but I do no think those stories survived the crash of this forum. the short story is that in some cases, this might be a viable option, however you need to consider the risks carefully and have a realistic assessment of your capabilities. You are talking about surgery, minor, but still surgery. For many, a better option will be to carefully choose a doctor and work with that doctor.

    Bridges have been cut or tied to severe the bridge. The few that have reported doing this have been happy. But a lot depends upon the specific case.

    Some men have made the mental leap that these can be features, and used them as a piercing to hang jewelry from.

    Adhesions have been less talked about, and I cannot recall any reports of men dealing with them on their own, other than simply restoring and seeing what happened.

    It will never hurt to get a doctor's advice. You can always ignore it.

    Here is a set of photos of skin bridges:

    How does yours compare?

      Skin bridge removal should be done by a doctor. While some very minor skin bridges may be resolvable using self-treatment means, this is a circumcision complication that unfortunately necessitates additional surgical treatment before restoration.

        Skin bridges can be removed easily by tying them off with dental floss. Just make sure everything is sterilized with povidone iodine solution. There have been several members on this forum who have done it successfully. The big concern is infection.

          It also depends on how vascularized and large the skin bridge is. Trying to tie off a big or heavily vascularized skin bridge with dental floss is asking for trouble.

            Wouldn’t the skin bridge help restoration by causing more tension while restoring?

              Just the opposite - tensioning the inner foreskin evenly around the skin bridge would be impossible.

              It's also often painful, from what I've heard, to use devices with this condition. They'd put a lot of tension on a very small area - not enough to rip it out, but still enough to hurt.

                Very interesting. I guess what I was thinking about is a combo of surgical restoration combined with non-surgical restoration. The surgeon suturing the skin to the glans and over time stretching the skin on the shaft. They can then use a device more effectively once they have enough skin. This would be for extremely tightly circumcised men like myself. CI-0 and CI-1 are almost impossible to restore effectively from without complications. What I was thinking is mimicking skin bridges with suturing all around the circumference of the shaft for a period of time. I believe the person would have to take pills to prevent erections for this process to work effectively. What are your thoughts?

                  Here is the shortest foreskin I have ever seen. This would be a CI-2 uncircumcised penis. You can see well defined ridge band. Would an uncircumcised penis with a short foreskin have more sensation? I would think so because nothing was cut, but I could be wrong. What do you all think? Click image for larger version

                    I'm not quite sure you understand what these things are. Skin bridges are just adhesions of the inner foreskin to the glans. They don't cause anything to stretch, and will actually prevent someone from being able to completely stretch out the inner skin underneath the bridge. Here's a page with photos - including before and after removal: http://circumstitions.com/Restric/Botched1sb.html

                    Stretching the skin on the shaft can be done by hand (known as manual tugging). Many restorers, myself included, have started from a point of a CI-1, so that's certainly not almost impossible. It only takes longer than those who start at a 2 or 3. There was no CI-0 defined by the guy who drew up that scale, so I don't know exactly what you mean, but if there's still any skin, it can be stretched.

                      I do understand what everything is as I did a lot of research. I was talking about a frenulum that is attached, but consists of scar tissue. This would still be an adhesion, it’s just a different type of adhesion. Sorry I was not clear, but there is no reason to be rude. Well I started off with less skin than a CI-1, so I call that a CI-0 as others do.

                        You never mentioned anything about a frenulum or scar tissue in your posts (???).

                          I did mention frenulum in the post you responded to

                            You're not looking at a "foreskin" in this photo. What is shown is a photo of a circumcised penis. Just that. And we have no idea that there is a ridged band shown, but we do have an idea that one is NOT present, because we are looking at the result of a circumcision, which invariably excises the ridged band.In other words, no ridged band. So I too would say that your level of understanding is suspect.

                              This penis is circumcised. Here is the video, which shows short foreskins:

                              https://youtu.be/UHkD-MNA0ps

                              it is the first 10 seconds of video as evidence. Also notice the ridge band of the foreskin behind the glans, this is evidence of an uncircumcised penis. It is the shortest foreskin I have ever seen. This is also more evidence that in some men the foreskin fails to elongate after birth. This is another reason why some men can end up with not enough skin. Nobody knows if the foreskin would elongate or not after birth. Also how big will their future penis be. To many unanswered questions to remove so much tissue.
