Foreskin restoration

Hundreds of thousands of circumcised men around the world are currently restoring their foreskins, and the number continues to grow.

Foreskin restoration can be performed surgically by trained surgeons, however, most commonly men use stretching techniques and weighted devices. Over time, they are able to lengthen their penile shaft skin so that it extends over the head of penis and resembles a foreskin.

It is important to understand that foreskin restoration cannot return everything that was lost by circumcision. For example, the mucous membrane of the inner foreskin cannot be restored, nor can the ridged band, which is a highly innervated piece of tissue that encircles the tip of the foreskin and helps to keep the head of the penis covered.

That said, foreskin restoration can return some of the functions lost by circumcision, such as physical protection of the mucosal tissue of the head of the penis, and the natural gliding action of stimulation. This is why men who have restored their foreskins report improved sensation and sexual experiences.
