A frenulum breve, or short frenulum, is a condition in which the frenulum of the penis is too short and thus prevents the foreskin from retracting smoothly over the head of the penis. The frenulum is the band of tissue under the glans that connects to the foreskin. A short frenulum can cause discomfort and problems during intercourse.
Fortunately, the frenulum ccan be lengthened through a simple surgical procedure, performed under local anesthesia. There are several ways to describe this operation, including frenectomy, frenuloplasty or simply as a lengthening of the penile frenulum.
