My pierced frenulum issue...and removal
First, let's not beat around the bush. I figured out why I was so into piercing when I was in my 20's. The lack of sensation in my penis was making me look for alternative ways to enhance pleasure. Unfortunately some piercing will come back and haunt you.
I called this one " The door knocker" This jewelry was used temporarily for fun and some pictures. Normally I would just have a ring threw the piercing.
Although it was fun back in my 20's, I do regret the damage the frenulum piercing caused.
A surface piercing is known to migrate so It should not be that much of a surprise when this happened, what surprised me is it happened after I stopped restoring and have been going threw a phase where my skin keeps getting softer on the inner foreskin.
It been years since I used Dual tension and almost a year since I used any thing other than very little manual stretching and that was extremely light Due to what I will talk about and show on this page.
Continued updates DEC 2017
Two more pictures to show the PA and the frenulum piercing. The first picture you can see I did not have a PA piercing yet. Now normally I would not use jewelry like this all the time. Most times I wore was just CBR's
Taken Sometime in my early 20's
This picture shows how much my glans have changed after restoring. The picture was taken outdoors in direct sunlight and that tends to make my penis and glans more red looking then normal. I had some shrinkage of the skin tissue and this always happens with a surface piercing but the skin was not to hard. It looks tight here since I am pulling down on the skin when erect to show the glans texture in sunlight.
This was a few years ago. My frenulum piercing cased the skin to look like this. I took the jewelry out years before I started to restore. This migration of the original piercing was one of the reasons I gave it up years ago. I figured I could stop the damage by no longer having any jewelry in it.
Okay kids, Surface piercings are notorious for migrating. This is a picture of the left side of my penis shaft. Where I did my foreskin piercings.
Notice there are two next to each other. The bottom one was my first attempt at the piercing. I had it in for a few weeks and took it out because it was too small. You need a long point to point area of skin when pierced due to shrinkage of skin tissue when it heals.
As you can see these healed very well after the issue I had in 2016. With these foreskin piercings. For some reason the other side of my penis shaft had an issue with the first on piercing I did. This just started to shrink anytime I would use manual stretching of all things. It hurt like hell and just kept getting smaller until I had to cut what was left of the skin.
This is the side i had a problem with. I had to cut the skin bridge of the piercing because it shrunk so much on this side that the piercing was just a small skin bridge that hurt just touching it.I used a sterile razor and sliced the skin. Almost no blood at all. The skin was just thick. This was taken a few days later as it healed.
The top white line is where my Foreskin piercing that I had used for years looks like today The bottom one shows what it looked one week later from cutting the skin bridge.
This was taken today.. DEC 2017 This is how the old pierced skin looks. Much better and still healing nicely.
My point in showing you this is to show what a migration looks like. It's your skins way of removing something so to speak. (Remember, I am not in the medical profession so do not listen to a word I say.) The scar tissue from a piercing encapsulates the jewelry since it can not remove it.
Your body grows skin around the jewelry as it heals. In a way of keeping the foreign object outside the body. Other wise you would bleed out every time you took your jewelry out.
I never had issues with my frenulum when I was restoring. I used a notched plate and my frenulum stayed the same. I stopped using Dual tension years ago and just been messing around every now and then with weight and manual stretching until late 2016 when I stopped using just about anything but some light manual stertching. My foreskin skin has been going threw a nice change since I stopped putting it under stress.
I will be revising/editing this page all Dec 2017 with more.
The bottom pierced skin is dissipating like it never was there.
I don't seem to have a picture of the frenulum just before I cut it.. I really wish I took a picture of this the day I cut it because it was not pretty. The frenulum skin was hard and thin and had a tear on one side. The scar tissue from this piercing felt like a callus.
So, I cut what was left of my frenulum and and it bled for about 8 hours.. not gushing but it would just
bleed without pressure on it. A simple bandage took care of that.
Now this is days later. I began to use Manuka honey to heal and it worked very well. I had very little scar tissue and although it looks creepy this felt so much better.
Now it looks busied to shit due to a skin tear I just got a few days before I decided to cut what was left of the frenulum.
This is about four weeks later. The frenulum nubs were starting to flatten out and there was no more pain in that area when retracting the foreskin.
This is about 8 weeks later and you can see that its healing very well. Yes folks these things take a long time to heal. I have a few tricks I have learned a few tricks to heal injuries like this so there is very little or know scar tissue.
I will post a few new pictures on this page soon. I just wanted to get the bulk of this page uploaded this week. Even though I no longer have a frenulum my foreskin coverage had not changed at all. I still have the same erect coverage I had now for 1.5 years.
I was afraid I might those that when I cut the frenulum but I had no choice.
The problem was only getting worse and it would have eventually migrated out in a few more months. I just moved things along by cutting it when I did.
This is me back in 2012. It stayed like this until 2017.
I am just using this as a reference to show where I had to cut although it looked much worse then this when I made the cut.
It was thinner and tight.
