Posted by clevelandjoe03 @clevelandjoe03, Aug 2, 2021

Is there anyway to get foreskin back ?

Interested in more discussions like this? Go to the Men's Health group.

If a boy get circumsiced could they use the foreskin to give to a person that want to be Uncircumcised?

Hi Joe,
This article talks about foreskin restoration https://www.healthline.com/health/mens-health/foreskin-restoration

While surgical options exists, they do not typically use the foreskin removed from someone who has been circumcised. Have you discussed foreskin restoration options with your doctor?

I haven't i don't know how to go about it. I hate that i was circumcise..and been wondering about it but looking it up the stretch o/ tugger. Method might not work on me because of how far they when back on my circumcision and because of my penis size

REPLY

But could a doctor on here message me and talk one on one about it before i talk to my doctor about it

You can stretch your shaft skin to cover and protect the glans as the foreskin was intended to do. You can actually do it using two baby bottle nipples….. google it. However, you will never have the same skin as you were born with…..IT IS GONE FOR NO MEDICAL REASON.

Some things I have learned and witnessed…..

1. Some hospitals in the USA sell the foreskins for up to $1,000 each. It has skin cells called fibroblast, when processed can be used in anti-aging creams.

2. The doctor who pushed for routine infant circumcision, to stop masturbation, around the early 1900's, from Battle Creek, MI… John Kellogg… sound familiar, yes he helped invent Corn Flakes.

3. The latest wisdom from the American Academy of Pediatric Surgeons is that the risks outweigh the benefits. Perhaps, that is why many insurance companies have stopped covering it… they call it UNNESSARY COSMETIC SURGERY.

4. Around 115 baby boys DIE from this surgery every year in this country, not counting surgical errors causing amputation of the glans or even the penis itself.

5. Some say if the father is circumcised, you should circumcise the child so they are like their father! I have had a father, a step father, and a foster father and I couldn't tell you if any of them were circumcised.

6. In the majority cases the mother signs the consent form, sometimes during labor…. how is that legal? Wouldn't the father know more about that subject. Also, women use the reason in support of abortion is that it is their body and they should control their own body. When the cord is cut, isn't it his body not hers. You don't own the baby, you are to nurture and protect the baby, NOT put it in harms way.

This is just a sample of some of the more outrageous things I have found out.

Joe I'm sorry you're having an issue with your missing foreskin. I'm a retired male nurse and I'll give you a few facts. Firstly ask your significant other what they think about this idea. From my experience most women prefer an un-circumcised penis. If you are not heterosexual having a foreskin requires a great more care of your penis. You will harbor more germs and bacteria beneath the foreskin that require you keep it clean. Plus, do you really want someone with a scalpel cutting around your penis? As the director stated this procedure is considered cosmetic and an unnecessary procedure. You will most certainly will be required to have a psychiatric evaluation to determine if this issue is in your head (the one on your shoulders) and does not require sought surgical intervention. Every man in the world has a different appearing penis. If you haven't done so scan the internet for pics so you can see for yourself. Please be sure to see a reputable urologic surgeon, not a plastic surgeon. You can contact me privately if you like to discuss further man to man

The Mayo will not help with foreskin restoration. I have already contacted them and tried. No doctor would talk with me or offer any help or advice other than literally saying: "go elsewhere". This is particularly insulting given the procedure is forced on children giving no concent.

When the Best Hospital in the USA, and the best Urologic clinic, why they do not pay any attention to the Academy of Pediatric Surgeons that the risks outweigh the benefits and as my former PCP, he has retired, refuse to do routine infant circumcision is a mystery and disappointment to me. Is it just $$$$$?
