Foreskin Restoration

Last Updated 3/1/2023

Many men who have been circumcised wish to regain what they have lost, especially the function of the foreskin.

The next natural step in getting the penis as close to its original state as feasible is foreskin restoration.

While restoration cannot replace the erogenous tissue or nerves lost during circumcision, it can produce a penis that appears more natural.

How does Foreskin Restoration work?

A foreskin that has been restored performs its original function makes it possible for the glans’ epithelium to relax and revert to a much higher level of sensitivity.

The most common restoration technique involves gently and consistently applying tension to the remaining shaft skin without the use of surgery. The skin naturally produces new skin cells as a reaction to this tension. As a result, a foreskin develops through natural enhancement.

Stretching does require commitment and time, the same as guys who have used penis pumps to increase girth. Men who have had their relationships repaired say it was worthwhile, enhanced their sex life, and increased their self-esteem.

Reading about men in similar situations is also a great thing to do. A member of NORMUK discusses some of his experiences with restoration, in an article that was first published in NORMUK News.

Unfortunately, there are situations when non-surgical restoration is not an option due to anatomical factors, such as inadequate remaining shaft skin or hypospadias.

What is Foreskin Restoration?

Foreskin Restoration is the process that is used to restore the foreskin that has been removed through circumcision. The process involves stretching the remaining skin on the penis to create new skin cells and eventually restore the foreskin.

How to regrow foreskin?

Foreskin restoration is possible through stretching and other techniques, such as using a device called a foreskin restoration device. This process involves stretching the skin of the penis over time to create a new foreskin.

It is important to note that it is not possible to restore nerve endings, so the sensation of the regrown foreskin may not be the same as the original foreskin.

What are the benefits of Foreskin Restoration?

Benefits of foreskin restoration include improved self-confidence, improved appearance, improved sexual pleasure, improved hygiene, and improved urinary control. Additionally, some men report that foreskin restoration has helped them to reconnect with their bodies and their sexuality.

How to regain sensitivity in penis?

Other than foreskin restoration there are several ways to regain sensitivity in the penis. First, it is important to practice good hygiene and keep the penis clean and dry.

Avoiding rough or tight clothing can also help to reduce friction and irritation. Additionally, using a lubricant during sexual activity can help to reduce friction and increase sensitivity.

Finally, using a penis health creme that contains natural ingredients such as vitamins, minerals, and amino acids can help to nourish the skin and increase nerve sensitivity.

How to get started with foreskin restoration?

The easiest way to get started is to purchase a foreskin restoration device. Once you have your device, you will need to create a stretching routine that works for you.

This will involve stretching the skin of the penis for a certain amount of time each day. Additionally, you may want to use lubricants and moisturizers to help keep the skin of the penis healthy and to reduce friction during the stretching process.

Lastly, you should consult with a doctor or a medical professional to ensure that the process is safe and that you are doing it correctly.

How long does foreskin restoration take?

The exact amount of time it takes to restore foreskin depends on a number of circumstances, including the amount of skin remaining, the desired outcomes, the regularity with which restoration methods and routines are followed, and the individual’s anatomy.

For those who have been more tightly circumcised, foreskin restoration is a multi-year endeavor, often taking one to three years or more. However, most males begin to see results after a couple months.

How to get foreskin back quickly?

Unfortunately, there are no shortcuts when it comes to restoring foreskin. The process of restoring foreskin is highly dependent on the individual, as it can take anywhere from a few months to several years.

The best way to restore foreskin is to use a foreskin restoration device, which gently stretches the skin over time. Additionally, you can also use manual stretching techniques, such as the “OK Grip” or the “jelqing” technique, to help speed up the process. Finally, it is important to be patient and consistent with the restoration process, as results will not be seen overnight.

Do I need to buy a device to succeed?

No, you do not need to buy a device to succeed in restoring. It’s completely possible to restore using tapes and homemade tools. However, many commercial devices are more efficient.

Can I have surgery to tighten my restoration?

Yes, you can have surgery to tighten your restoration. However, there is a risk of making it too tight or too loose, so it is preferable to keep repairing until some overhang is obtained. Most of the time, the restoration will tighten naturally with non-surgical treatments.

How much does foreskin restoration surgery cost?

Generally, the cost of foreskin restoration surgery can range from $2,000 to $7,000. With that being said, the cost of foreskin restoration surgery varies depending on the type of procedure, the complexity of the surgery, and the doctor performing the procedure.

Is surgically restored foreskin a quick fix?

No, surgically restored foreskin is not a quick fix. It can never appear as natural as the foreskin that was present before circumcision. Non-surgical repair is a better option for restoring foreskin, as many people are dissatisfied with the results of surgical restoration. We propose non-surgical tissue expansion as a better option, as it allows the penile shaft skin to be extended to cover the glans without causing scars, discoloration, or surgical problems.

While some methods may guarantee that the foreskin’s gliding function is preserved, surgical repair of the foreskin often involves grafting skin from other parts of the body, which can result in scars, discoloration, and hair loss. Additionally, a surgically reconstructed foreskin is unlikely to restore the usual look and feel of a natural foreskin, and may lack the gliding capabilities of a natural foreskin.

I am tightly circumcised, will I be able to achieve a non-surgical restoration?

Yes, it is possible to achieve a non-surgical restoration, but it will take considerably longer than it would for someone who is not as tightly circumcised.

Is it safe to restore while sleeping?

Prior to restoring while sleeping, it’s recommended that you’re able to use the device without numbness for more than 6 hours without taking a break. Therefore, it’s important to have a good grasp on your capabilities before you attempt to restore while sleeping.

Extra caution should be applied if you plan to implement it into your protocol. Even though it’s safe to restore while sleeping, make sure that you don’t obtain an erection while using the device, as this can cause discomfort.

Why does my restoration device begin to ache after use?

The most common cause of discomfort when using a restoration device is wearing the device incorrectly. This can cause the skin to be folded, wrinkled, or not applied uniformly, which can be painful. Additionally, excessive tension or inflation pressure can also cause discomfort. It is important to ensure that the device is properly fitted and adjusted to avoid discomfort.

It is possible that the restoration device is causing discomfort due to the strain it is putting on the skin. The device must clamp some skin between the bell and the gripper, which can cause constriction of blood and lymph fluid flow, leading to diminished circulation in the afflicted location. This can induce transient hypoxia/ischemia, which can cause pain and discomfort. Additionally, too much tension or air pressure used to drive cell division can cause the skin to expand excessively, leading to skin fatigue and discomfort over time.

How to make t-tape for foreskin restoration?

T-tape is a type of tape used for foreskin restoration. It is made from a thin, flexible material such as medical grade silicone or latex. To make t-tape, cut a strip of the material to the desired length and width.

Secure the ends of the strip together with a small piece of tape. The t-tape should be applied to the foreskin in a circular motion, starting at the base and working up towards the tip. Make sure to leave some slack in the tape so that it can move freely. Once the t-tape is in place, it should be left on for several hours at a time.

I am tightly circumcised, can I still restore?

Yes, you can still restore even if you are tightly or even partially circumcised. You can do this by selectively working more on one side of the shaft than the other. This can help to lessen the curve or even fix it.

My penis is bent on erection due to Peyronie’s Disease, can I still restore?

Yes, you can still restore. While Foreskin Restoration may help increase your confidence with the Peyronie’s, it’s unlikely to alter the curvature of the penis.

Surgery is the only option that may be able to restore the penis to its original shape. However, it is important to note that surgery is not always successful and may have potential risks and complications. It is important to speak with your doctor to discuss the best treatment option for you.

Restoration leaves me with hair up the shaft, what can I do about this?

If you are experiencing hair up the shaft after a restoration, you may want to consider electrolysis.

This is a process that uses a small electric current to kill each hair follicle, making it an easy and painless way to permanently remove unwanted hair. However, if you are looking for a less permanent treatment, you may want to consider shaving the area instead.

Why do intact guys have less inner skin than restored guys?

Intact guys have less inner skin than restored guys because the frenulum, which is a band of tissue that connects the foreskin to the glans, prevents the skin from retracting.

When the foreskin is removed, the frenulum is also removed, allowing the skin to be rolled back further. This prolonged rollback of skin is one of the distinguishing traits of a repaired foreskin. Rolling back the inner skin feels like having another glans, which is why restored guys have more inner skin than intact guys.

Which foreskin restoration method is best?

The best approach to foreskin restoration is to find a method that works best for you and that produces results. The most frequent methods used are dual tension restoration (DTR) and tension-based restoration.

Inflation-based methods such as HyperRestore can also be effective, but it is important to be consistent and persistent with whichever method you choose.

What is dekeratinization in foreskin restoration?

Dekeratinization is the process of reducing the amount of keratin in the epidermis, the outer layer of the skin. This can be caused by chronic stress or trauma, such as modifications in sex and/or masturbation habits.

Dekeratinization can also occur naturally as a result of foreskin restoration, as the shaft skin of the penis is unaffected by the process and remains with a fully normal layer of keratin. The goal of dekeratinization is to reduce the chronic stress and damage to the skin, resulting in decreased keratinization.

Is more time per day stretching better?

No, there is no empirical evidence to suggest that more time per day stretching is better. In fact, over time, the skin can thicken under persistent strain, leading to huge tension and discomfort. Therefore, no empirical research has been conducted to determine the optimal amount of time for stretching.

The only anecdotal findings offered by restorers suggest that short, frequent stretching sessions every hour may be more beneficial than longer, less frequent sessions, as this mimics a constant tension.

Should I take days off?

Yes, it is important to take days off from tugging to allow your skin to rest and recover. Taking regular breaks from tugging can help reduce stress and minimize the strain on your skin. Additionally, skin cells are constantly being replaced through cell division, so taking a break from tugging can improve gains, not hinder the process.

Is foreskin restoration safe?

Yes, foreskin restoration is generally safe when done correctly and with caution. It is important to follow some common-sense rules when restoring your foreskin, such as always stopping when you’re in pain.

Pain is your body’s way of telling you that you’re doing something wrong, so it is important to stop and fix the problem. Additionally, it is not recommended to restore while sleeping unless you have tested your device and are sure it is safe to do so, especially during erections.

What does CI-1 mean?

CI-1 means Coverage Index 1. The coverage index that is used to measure the accuracy of coverage of foreskin restoration. It is used to keep track of progress and to make sure that the area has adequate coverage.

How to measure progress and coverage of foreskin restoration?

There are a few ways to measure progress and coverage of foreskin restoration. One way is to measure the amount of skin that has been restored. This can be done by measuring the length of the foreskin and the amount of coverage it provides.

Another way is to measure the degree of sensitivity that has been restored. This can be done by using a device to measure the sensitivity of the glans and the inner foreskin.

Additionally, progress can be measured by observing the location and movement of the foreskin, as well as the overall appearance of the penis. It is important to note that each penis is unique, and the way it develops and responds to foreskin restoration will vary from person to person.
