Lost my length after circumcision

docw profile image

I am 22 days post-op. I went through ZSR circumcision and my rings fell off after 20 days. I observed my erection last night and it seems i lost my length. My erect length decreased from 16-17 cms(pre-op) to 12 cms (post op) .

I agree that they haven't copped of my penis so anatomically length shouldn't be decreased. But it seems that i got a tight cut which is restricting my erection. Have anyone experienced this and did your size improve over time or is it permanent?

You will have considerable swelling for another few weeks which hides some of your penis length.

Give it time and your true length will become obvious again.

I don't have any visible swelling. My scar looks pretty clean and normal.

A lot of the swelling will be in deeper tissue and not particularly obvious.

You are possibly right. I should wait for few more weeks.

In fact i am happy with my recovery and aesthetic outcome. I am only worried about the length.

So it takes 6 - 7 days to fall completely?

generally yes

Think about it as your skin being compressed like a spring. While it heals it will start decompressing. Just takes time to get the elasticity back.

I too lost length in the beginning but someone told me this and it made sense. Your penis has just gone through a traumatic surgery. It's healing itself, give it time. I went from 9" to about 7.5". I was extremely worried. Happy to say it did come back. Give it some time.

I got the same problem, what should I do to help me get back to the size? Any stretch? Or just need to wait


I am experiencing the same issue. I'm in week 7 post op. The tightness is still there and I haven't recovered the length. I wished I had found this forum before deciding on the cut.
