It’s a fact that male circumcision is factored around the parent’s prerogative and their views on this form of surgery. Regardless if you’re for or against this procedure, there’s good news for people out there who are unhappy about that missing piece of skin.

Foreskin restoration is a unique method that helps regrow the foreskin for those wanting to return to the natural look.

So why are men affected by their circumcision?

Because they are missing out on the sexual enjoyment that is their birthright, Dr Peter Ball, vice-chair of NORM-UK, said.

They feel mutilated, incomplete, damaged, assaulted, robbed. They resent the lack of informed consent to the operation.

There are myriad ways of restoring the foreskin, so Dr Ball has produced a 40-minute video demonstration called Restoration in Focus showing the basic methods both DIY and commercial.

They all work. The important thing is the length of time devoted to the restoration, he said.

Subjecting the skin of the shaft of the penis to prolonged tension results in the growth of new skin which can be folded over the glans. Obviously the bigger proportion of your day you spend and the looser you have been circumcised the shorter the time -“ it takes roughly two to three years.

Restoration of the glans rolling in and out of the foreskin mechanism during intercourse and masturbation is so pleasurable for the intact man.

Restoration of some of the sensitivity of the glans that was lost by circumcision also happens. I must remind restorers that you will never get back the mucosal lining of the inner foreskin and the erogenous ridged band that is removed forever by the act of circumcision.

The restoration is relatively inexpensive -“ the cost of the paper tapes, weights, elastic bands and the optional cost of buying a commercial tape-less gadget.

It is possible to damage the skin by gross over-stretching. If the process hurts then you are doing harm, Dr Ball said.

If you are an unhappily circumcised man, don’t hesitate and go for it. The key to success is perseverance.
