I had a cicumcision three weeks ago to address problems with tightening foreskin and failed frenuloplasty.
I wasn't particularly happy with the slightly unusual procedure my doctor elected to do but I am more or less over that assuming that it heals okay.
The incisions are now beginning to heal, and while I appreciate that it is early days, I am still worried about the scars.
There are two worries
1 - in the first week stiches failed in a section on the top part of the penis (as I look down at it). This cause the incision to gape open during the healing process and I can see that the scar is much wider and irregular as a result. It doesn't look like it will ever be a nice thin line but on the plus side it is pretty flat.
2 - as for the rest of the incision, some of it is quite thin and flat (particularly to the right as I look down) but the rest has a really pronounced ridge (particular to the left and behind as I look down). When I say pronounced, I mean it feels like a thin shoelace. This is in an area where the stitches held and the wound quite neat.
Because of my concerns the doctor has inspected it twice and I have another appointment in three weeks time. My concern is that he has focussed on the area where the stitches failed. He has been positive but not convincingly, saying things like we can always cut the scarring out at the later date.
But to be honest I'm less worried about that are, it does look like the scar won't be neat but it does look like it will be flat.
I'm more worried about where the scar is ridged like a thin shoelace. Is that normal, will it flatten out ir am I going to be left with a raised ridge of scar tissue. I've no idea what to expect in the healing process, what I should expect to see, how that will change, and in what timescale.
I shall certainly raise it with the doctor when I see him in the new year but for now would appreciate any insight and advice on here.
