Skin Bridge

I have a small penile skin bridge on the under left side. I have read about three different procedures for fixing them. 1. The bridge is tied at two ends with absorbable suture and divided. 2. Cauterize. 3. Cut and stitch. Which one is recommended?

Good research! Obviously there is no correct answer. I recommend that you have the "cut and stitch" procedure, especially if your skin bridge is more than a 2-3 mm in width. With this method the scar on your glans (glands) and shaft can be minimized. The procedure can be done in the office under local anesthesia and fine absorbable suture can be employed.
