Re circumcision to correct previous circumcision

I've been circumcised about more than a decade back.the scar line is uneven, with an inch of inner foreskin behind glans and frenulum not removed but has a stich into it as well.the stiches have formed into many knots during the surgery.i was told that they would heal and become flat. But the look hasn't changed and now I wish to have the inner foreskin removed.I also experience a sharp pain when I loosley pinch the hanging inner foreskin under and behind the glans. A general.doctor said that I don't have enough shaft skin in order and cannot cut a healed inner skin. If it is the short skin, iam sure I can stretch it as I did for sometime before and was successful. I definitely know the pros and cons of inner skin removal w.r.t pleasure etc and I've decided to go for it after lots of research. I've also read that people have been operated in the same place many times after scar tissue formation. Please advise.

Did you decide to do the surgery?  If so, have you done it yet?
Yes i have. Consulted a good plastic surgeon finally,surgery due in December..Am planning for complete frenulum removal also, but not getting any perfect advise about it. Some say yes and some say no.Waiting for some more inputs till then. You could let me know something about it if possible..

Have you considered seeing a urologist for this? A good urologist is who normally would preform this surgery (even a revision) because he’s aware of how the area typically heals rather then a plastic surgeon. That is unless you’ve found a plastic surgeon that specializes in revised circumcisions.
Either way best of luck to you!
