PREPUTIOPLASTY or CIRCUMSION?

Hi. Im 19 years old living in Canada. I recently noticed i have tight foreskin or phimosis. I've been with 8 different girls but none had said anything until the most recent one. I got pretty nervous after i found this out. I went to my doctor he gave me cream for it but that would take to long as its fairly tight. I really dont have the patience for that. To just waste 2 months for nothing to happen or even possibly tearing my foreskin making things even worse. I went to a urologist today. Over the phone he agreed to a preputioplasty so i was relieved cause the last thing i want is a circumsion. I dont want to lose sensitivity and it would be hard looking down and seeing nothing covering the head while I'm soft. Plus the recovery time is much longer and more painful. Now i get there and he tells me oh preputioplasty doesnt exist its just another word for circumcision. I was really shook and disappointed after i heard that. I still think hes lying and just wants to get it over with and have me circumsized. Can anyone help me with this issue.
Its really affecting my train of thought and my everyday life. If in fact the procedure does exist does anyone a place where it can be done? Anywhere in the States or Canada i will go to get it done and also an approximate price for it. Thanks a lot. Please shoot me a reply if you know anything

I was circumcised 66 years ago and have never wanted foreskin.  I never had   any sensitivity issues and never had any yeast infections.

Good luck.
