  • Should I get a Dr. Consultation?

    I am completely unaware of the different stages of restoration, and am a visual person. I don’t know how to intitially evaluate the state of my foreskin to determine a method (or methods) to use that suits me and my lifestyle best. Is there a diagram showing the stages of foreskin restoration? What methods are best for the variety of activity levels?

    Can I consult an andrologist on a restoration programme specificly suitable to me? Do andrologists deal with foreskin restoration? Has anybody consulted their doctors on their restoration at all?

    I don’t have insecurities about showing my foreskin online in this restoration context but I would imagine a specialist could get a better and faster grip on my progress than me looking at pictures of a bunch of guys’ dicks on the internet.

    Thanks for pointers

    I'm not sure where you are from (your spelling of some words suggests that you are not from the US) but foreskin restoration is generally not looked upon favorably or acknowledged as legitimate by the medical profession in most places. I'm not aware of any doctors or specialty in them that addresses non-surgical restoration. You would be hard-pressed to find a positive response, let alone knowledgeable guidance. Online support and forums are your best bet in that regard.

    The stages of foreskin restoration are not well-defined because everyone starts from a different point and there's not a "standard" foreskin. Here's a photographic chart people typically refer to though:

      I learned typing playing an English online MMORPG. I am from Kansas, US.

      The picture labeling foreskin lengths is helpful.

      According to the the chart I can say I’m probably a C-I 2.8. Could you tell me where best to post progress pictures of my foreskin restoration if I so chose?

      Ill take your word for it that doctors are incompetent and unhelpful regarding foreskin restoration. I suppose not a lot of men questioning their circumsicsion would limit demand for the skill of foreskin restoration in doctors.

      You say there is no standard foreskin, but I imagine the basic purpose is to get to CI-10, where the foreskin completely covers the tip so as to re-cover and re-sensitize what would normally be sensitive and covered.

      I see that you are a senior contributor in these forums, and would like to ask you, do you agree full coverage is ideal?

      As to the the method of achieving full coverage, is there a way to find out how much interior foreskin versus external foreskin I can calculate as my personal goal?

        Doctors in the Us just are not trained to take care of foreskins. In the US, the foreskin is barely acknowledged as having any value by most of the medical community, let alone developing techniques and best ways to restore a foreskin. If you are lucky, you might find a doctor that is encouraging, but that is about the best you can expect.

        Regarding your goals, you are the one growing skin, so you get to decide what you would like to end up with. Full coverage when flaccid is more or less typical of what you see in intact men, but there is wide variation. So consider what you would like. How you would like to look.

        My goal is complete coverage when flaccid, all the time, with inner skin on the inside and outer skin on the outside. I do not care if the scar is at the leading edge of the opening, for several reasons. first, there is so much variation of what my flaccid state is that worrying about a precise location seems unhelpful. Second, I only have partial control of where it ends up. third, as I have restored, my scar has become all but impossible to see, so it's location has become largely irrelevant. My goal is based on my expectation (and reports from men who have achieved this) that this will give me the best feelings and functionally will be the closest to what I would have had. I had the benefit of having two sons who are intact, and could see what their coverage was like, so have some sense of what mine would have been, as well.

        That said, many men are concerned about the appearance of their scar, so choose to restore so that the scar will be just inside the opening, when flaccid. And, I should add, not everyone wants complete coverage, some are happier with a bit less. Others want enough skin to have full erect coverage.

        You can always just get started, and make it up as you go, too. this is a long process, with a lot of time to make adjustments. Just choose a method, manual is a go to for getting started, easy to do, nothing needed, and as you go think about what you want.

        Regards

          There's a Progress Gallery here which you can use, assuming you're at least 18.

          It's not so much incompetence as it is ignorance. Chances are they simply won't know what you're talking about and as a result of that and their general medical training that likely said that circumcision is great, they will reject the idea of foreskin restoration.

          Reliable flaccid coverage, which is the most typical and realistic of goals, happens long before CI-10.

          I think full coverage at all times is great and I'm certainly aiming for it, but that's a very long term goal that even the most dedicated restorers will need years of daily effort to achieve. The amount of skin you'll need on some level is easier - enough of a double layer of skin to cover the glans flaccid and then erect. But everyone's penis is different and there is no general model or equation to plug numbers into to tell you how much skin to grow. Early on you just want to stimulate (tug) the maximum surface area of skin - don't worry about "targeting" or growing the "right skin" early on - the reality is you almost certainly need a lot more of anything you can get to grow.

            Cool that your kids aren’t circumcised Greg.

            I’ll look at the progression forum to get a better idea of what I can expect.

            I suppose I’ll come across some on this site but haven’t seen a useful reference forum for beginners. Are there good instruction videos either of you could recommend I watch on manual tugging?

              Check out www.restoringforeskin.org . There is a wealth of information there.
              Don't even talk to a doctor about restoring unless he's intact himself, totally against circumcision and at least familiar with restoration. You probably will be looking for the right one for quite a while because the ONLY thing U.S. doctors are taught about the foreskin is how to cut it off!
              Research the crap out of this issue. The members on this forum can give you all the references and information you need. I researched the hell out of this for 6 months before I decided to do it. Trust me, as a guy who got cut as an adult and actually knows the difference, you will NOT regret it. WELCOME!
