HELP!!!!! Did anyone heal this way

HELP!!!!! Did anyone heal this way

So today I got really worried when I noticed something troubling. I was circumcised April 2, (10 days past operation) I know I am still in the early stages of healing but did anyone heal this way. I drew a simple example of how I noticed I am healing/healed. Pink is foreskin, tan is scar/fuse, brown is shaft skin

Fig 1. Is how I expected I will heal. Both renaming foreskin and shaft skin meet. The area in between is how they bond/scar together. Notice how overall it is flat and smooth.

Fig 2. Is how I am healing. The remaining foreskin sit noticeably lower. The part where they fuse together is wide. The shaft skin sit high leaving a bump. Where it was cut. The skin appears to be sealed closed meaning there is no healing/fusing going on. My second thought is this is swelling, but closer inspection it does not appear to be. Also I would imagine if it was swelling it wound swell differently.

I can post a picture if someone with experience with this would like to see.

Hi. I went through cir on March 5 so I think I know what you mean. Your skin will be lumpy in various parts and the healing will not be even. After 5 days I had 3 stitches fall of on the right side and the skin didn't seem fused properly but now it's coming along just fine. I was concerned and consulted with my doc but he says that my penis will go through changes anywhere from 6 to 12 months. Hope this helps.

I have seen my other post saying the same thing. Just wait it out.

Also, I can always go see a plastic surgeon in the future for scar revision. Apparently it is very popular.

Time should take care of smoothing things out for you. As you heal and experience erections, the tension will help to flatten the juncture. When able, you could apply local tension.

I hope you are correct about this. Do you know of any medication will help flatten the tissue?

No medicine I know of.

Hi, i have very similar problem. Look at the picture in the topic i posted a while ago. What do you think about that? Do you think it will settle down?

OK, yours looks different then mine. Your skin looks like it fused properly, however you do seem to have those bumps. From the looks of it I don't think it is swelling, It might be scar tissue under the skin or collagen. I would start by massaging it, however I don't know if this will work. 2 months post-op it should be healed by now.

I was reading online and accepted to do this after 6 months was to see a plastic surgeon. Unlike regular doctors, plastic surgeons use advance techniques to minimize scaring. Worst case scenario the surgeon will cut out the scar tissue (basically redo circumcision). Cauterize the new skin with a laser to fuse it quickly, then use skin glue (rather then stitches) to hold skin together. Best case is they correct scar with non-invasive techniques.

Hey, I prefer not doing much external alteration to our bodies unless required and it's a necessity.

Stitches are coming down the line from ancient times, but laser uses beams and radiations, you might not see the effects immediately but at the later stages of your life.

I suggest you to take a year off and see if your penis changes and comes back to normal. I hope that you heal well.

I feel that you must have constant erections for the skin to understand it needs to stretch.

Get yourself erected frequently. I almost have a 20 min long erection from day 4, today is my day 8. Excluding unconscious erections.

The pain of erection has reduced already. I noticed white Shiney liquid at the stitches during an erection, and that's when I stopped. It scared the hell out of me. I'll avoid erections until tmrw.
