    I've been wearing it 24/7 since the start of 2012. Literally haven't taken it off once.

    My stretching routine is pretty much the same as DLD's ball-stretching routine.

    Re: My Ball stretching Progress

    Time for a general update on all the stuff I've been doing with my dick recently.

    Ball Stretching:
    I basically stopped ball stretching in December so haven't really made any gains since my last photos. I had to stop because it interfered with some other genital modification stuff i was doing, which I will go into below.
    Here's a comparison pic for my last full year of ball stretching. I guess there's a little gain but not a lot. I gained way more than this in the 6 months before the first picture.

    Frenulum Tying:
    I keep my foreskin retracted and the frenulum tends to pull the foreskin forward over the glans (not what I want) so I had wanted to do something about my frenulum for a while. A frenular tie is basically the same as snipping the frenulum with a sharp implement. You cut into the frenulum which effectively increases it's outer length and therefore does not restrict the glans and foreskin so much. The difference is that instead of just hacking away, what you do is, you place a very shallow, very tight stitch in the part of the frenulum that you want to sever. This stitch is so tight that it crushes and kills the tiny area of flesh that it has enclosed and roughly one week later, when the stitch has pretty much sliced right through the enclosed flesh, this part of the frenulum just snaps. You could just slash your frenulum with a razor but a frenular tie is a little more controlled and will heal a bit quicker. It may also produce less scar tissue.

    The Method:
    I took an ordinary sewing needle and a piece of 0.5mm stretch magic. This is a nylon based, slightly stretchy, very strong filament used for making jewellery. The nylon construction means you can ensure the filament is smooth and sterile. The stretchiness is good because it means that the knot will continue to contract and apply pressure as the enclosed skin dies and shrinks. Some people find that non-elastic thread stops working after a few days, and is no longer providing any compression and they therefore need to remove that stitch and put a new, tighter one in. Stretchy thread theoretically removes the need to do this.
    So i cleaned the thread and the needle thoroughly (sharpened it too), used a clothes peg and a lamp to clamp my frenulum in a convenient position and provide a back light so i could see through the construction of the semi-transparent skin and find the ideal placement for the stitch. I aimed for a very shallow position (best to tie off a little at a time) and also tried to place the stitch as close to the glans as possible as this would be the part that was providing the most anchorage between glans and foreskin. I stuck the needle in with a slight twisting motion to help pierce the frenulum. It took a lot of force to get the needle through (skin is strong!) and it hurt quite a bit when i got it through, not more than an unpleasant sting though. I pulled the filament through then tightened a few very tight knots on top of one another. There was a painful throb each time my pulse tried to force blood through this newly constricted capillary. This was the worst pain of the whole experience but still it was not unbearable, maybe a 6/10 (I've had bowel movements that have hurt worse).
    I treated the area before hand with a little germolene. This is an antiseptic with a little anaesthetic in it. It didn't seem to numb me much, maybe it made a little difference. I applied this consistently over the next week to keep the area sterile. In hindsight this may not have been a sensible idea. Apparently antiseptics can hinder the growth of new skin which is not really what you want when you are severing skin. Just keeping clean is probably enough to avoid an infection once the stitch is in.
    I soaked the area twice a day for about 15 mins in a cup of warm water. Apparently this would soften the skin and help the stitch to cut through quicker.
    Eventually the stitch cut through after 10 or 11 days. This is slightly longer than most others have reported this procedure to take. When i placed the stitch I accidentally placed it a little deeper than I really wanted to (it's hard to get it exactly where you want) so I suspect it took longer because my stitch was a little deeper than most and so there was more skin that needed to be cut through.

    All in all it was a positive experience. I have a little more freedom of movement in my foreskin, it doesn't roll over the glans so much and I personally think the frenulum free cock looks a bit better than one with an intact frenulum. IMO the frenulum is one of the most unnecessary, unattractive, inconvenient, badly designed parts of our anatomy and anyone who wants to do away with theirs probably won't be disappointed with the results.

    Below is a before and after comparison. In both pics I am pulling my shaft skin down to illustrate the degree to which the frenulum is distorting the shape of the head. The head is tilted forward much more before and hardly at all after. It also seems as if there is a large area of newly exposed tissue now that the webbing is out of the way. There's a tight, white strip of frenulum that is still restricting my foreskin very slightly. I might be tempted to do one more tie to rid myself of it but now I'm thinking I might just get the whole frenulum surgically removed anyway.

    Fren tie before and after.jpg

    Here's the thread where I got all my information:
    Frenulum Tying!
    Dozens of guys have tried it and reported on their success. The procedure appears to be fairly foolproof. If you've ever had frenulum related trouble (e.g. tearing during intercourse) and wanted to do something about it then I can thoroughly recommend this procedure to you. If you like the sound of it but are a little squeamish about the whole thing you might be able to get your doctor to do it for you.

    Re: My Ball stretching Progress

    The Bathmate and the Ideal Penis:

    I've had an on and off flirtation with P.E. for the last 14 years. My cock is a little larger than 7X5 inches. Round about this time last year i discovered the rave reviews for the Bathmate pump and wanted to buy one. First I spent some time figuring out what the ideal penis size actually was. If i was already there I didn't want to waste time and money getting any larger. Looking around at forum posts on the subjects i found that most women tended to experience pain in their cervix with penises longer than 7 inches and also tended to feel a bit sore after intercourse with penises that had a girth of at least 5.5 inches. I was therefore already at an ideal size and needn't worry about getting any larger... On the other hand, PE and the thought of having a big dick had always been a bit of a fetish for me and i could afford to gain another half inch in girth so I thought what the hey and bought a bathmate.
    It wasn't until May that I got round to using it regularly. I used it consistently for about 4 months and then stopped abruptly when i realised that this whole exercise was pointless, that I was already an ideal size, that I would likely cause more discomfort than pleasure if I got any larger and that it had been foolish for me to buy this pump in the first place.

    Here's a little more musing on the subject of the ideal penis size, for anyone who's interested:

    I made a poll to try and ascertain an actual ideal size as selected by women themselves.

    Women: Specify your ideal penis - Mister Poll

    If you average out the results then the mean average ideal penis comes out at 6.6X5.3. It's also worth pointing out that:
    A: an 8X6 penis apparently occurs in about 1% of men so; many of the 15% of women who chose this option probably have never even encountered one this size.
    B: A penis that is slightly smaller than the ideal size will equate to a slight decrease in pleasure whereas a penis that is slightly too big will equate to a big increase in discomfort. When asked (forums, polls) what is "too big" women will often venture a size like 7 inches (6 inches was the ideal length for roughly half the respondents on my poll). When asked what is too small women will suggest something like less than 4 inches. In other words, the average size is already a lot closer to "too big" than it is to "too small".
    C: Similarly a medium sized penis will be perfectly satisfactory to a more "capacious" woman but potentially painful for a "petite" woman. Again, slightly too big is more likely to lead to decreased sexual satisfaction than slightly too small.

    All in all you have more to lose by aiming for "too big" than "too small", so we can probably set the ideal size slightly lower.
    If you remove the 8 inch length and 6 inch girth votes then the mean average becomes 6.4x5.1 and this seems like a pretty reasonable ideal. In fact if I'd thought to include a 5" length option the average length would almost certainly have been a little lower.

    Basically what I'm saying is that the average size and the ideal size are pretty much the same: Round about 6X5. It makes sense right? If the female orgasm is a natural part of sex then why would men evolve to be slightly too small to supply those orgasms? Surely they would evolve to be (on average) exactly the right size? It seems obvious that the average size and the ideal size really ought to be about the same.

    If anyone is thinking of getting into PE I would advise 6X5 as a good goal size. I guess you can do what you want with your body, but would point out that out of the women who specified an ideal size only 14% chose 8X6. So if you're already average sized and aiming for a huge penis, you're probably less likely to satisfy the average woman with your goal size than you are with your current size. Food for thought.

    I was at 7.3X5.2 and hoping to gain another quarter inch in girth but then i made that poll and mused on the topic for a while and realised that it wasn't worth proceeding. There are no girth exercises that do not also increase length and I am already significantly above the ideal length. I don't want one of those long, cervix-smashing cocks that makes women flinch and would force me to have to hold back, go easy. That would suck. Also I'm already at the more conservative (5.1) girth ideal, so I quit while I was ahead.

    Here's a little extra on the poll, basically a summary of the results. I'll give the results in order of importance (i.e. the questions where the fewest respondents chose "no preference") and the share that the most popular option received from the respondents who did have a preference.

    The Perfect Penis:
    Foreskin: Circumcised (94% share of 99% of respondents)
    Pubic Hair: Shaved or Trimmed (97% share of 99% of respondents)
    Glans to shaft size ratio: Mushroom-shaped (96% share of 96% of respondents)
    Length: Mean: 6.6, Median: 7, Mode: 6 (50% share of 73% of respondents)
    Girth: Mean: 5.3, Median: 5, Mode: 5 (45% share of 72% of respondents)
    Ball Hang: Higher than the tip of the penis (88% share of 62% of respondents)
    Testicle size: Big (91% of 46% of respondents)

    So the most important factors for women are foreskin and pubic hair (where their preference is overwhelmingly for circumcised and shaved/trimmed) and the least important factors are the size and position of the testicles.

    Re: My Ball stretching Progress

    Circumcision:
    The final(?) step in my penile journey. Circumcision. I've wanted to get cut now for half my total life-span. I was 14 years old when my family got the internet. I soon saw lots of american cocks in all the hardcore porn that I, as a normal 14 year old boy, inevitably fixated upon. I wondered why it was that they all looked so different from my own penis. Whatever it was they did I thought it looked fantastic. The constantly exposed, slightly flared glans. The smooth shaft skin that lay flat with no excess skin flaps or wrinkles. The overall, aesthetic simplicity of it all. It just looked so much sexier and more masculine than my own cock. I was very jealous of these and wanted to make my own cock the same as theirs. I was astonished to discover that this effect was achieved by a totally unecessary operation performed (without consent) on the majority of american boys in infancy. The idea that it should be seen as perfectly normal to cut off a part of a baby's penis for no real reason other than custom was a little bewildering to me.
    After the disbelief abated I decided that I too wanted to have this operation so that I could look as fantastic as the men in all those pornos. Unfortunately I was born into a non-jewish, non-muslim, British family and therefore circumcision was a totally alien topic. Furthermore, we are a slightly repressed family who don't discuss "that sort of thing" so I didn't feel it was a subject that I could bring up. I would just have to wait until i had the finances and independence to arrange it for myself.
    In the meantime I satisfied my yearning by learning to keep my foreskin retracted.
    Anyway, here I am, 28 years old and finally getting round to something I have wanted for half my life span. I booked my appointment recently. It will be in 2 weeks time and I am really looking forward to having the penis I always dreamed of. I really do feel like one of those people who changes their gender, y'know, like "I'm a Circumcised man who was mistakenly born into the body of an Uncircumcised man". The whole look and feel just seem so right to me. I guess time will tell how I feel about my new cock but the vast majority of guys like me who genuinely wanted to get cut are overwhelmingly positive about the whole experience afterwards, so I'm feeling optimistic about it all.

    Cut Style:
    I'm hoping for a moderately high, moderately tight cut. High enough to keep most of my inner foreskin but I think I probably want to remove the tip of my foreskin where it seems to get a little narrower/tighter. Ideally the scar will be at least an inch away from my glans. I slightly prefer the look of high circs and would like to keep the more sensitive inner foreskin. Also higher cuts are easier to revise (should I ever want to) than very low cuts, so a high cut gives me more options down the road.
    I want that permanently exposed glans so the cut ought to be tight enough to ensure that the glans is totally exposed even when flaccid. However, I don't like the look of some of these super tight cuts where the scrotum is pulled up the shaft or where the glans is squashed by the overly taut shaft skin. So I want it quite tight but not super tight.
    If we use the foreskin coverage index as a guide:
    Foreskin Coverage Index
    I am currently CI-6 or CI-7. Ideally I want to be CI-2. CI-1 or CI-3 would be acceptable. CI-4 would be a bit of a disappointment.

    I have pretty much decided to have my frenulum removed as part of the procedure. I could probably leave it as it is and it wouldn't make much difference to the overall apearance of my circumcision but having spent a lot of time looking at circumcised dicks during my research I've decided that the frenulum-free ones look a lot better. Even if the frenulum is totally loose, as mine is, the mere presence of it spoils the look somehow. The best looking dicks IMO look completely smooth and seamless in the frenulum area, as if there was never a frenulum there in the first place, and this is the result that I am hoping for.
    I know people say that the frenulum is the most sensitive area, male G-spot, etc. etc. but I have not personally found this to be the case. When I probe/stroke the frenulum I find it to be no more sensitive than any of the surrounding shaft skin and significantly less sensitive than my desensitised, permanently exposed glans. In fairness, i've torn (15 years old), snipped (18 years old with a pair of blunt nail scissors!) and tied my frenulum so it's basically a long strip of scar tissue by this point. I guess it might have been more sensitive before I did any of that stuff but I can't really say. I never noticed it. I was very aware that my glans used to be hyper-sensitive and subsequently became de-sensitised by constant exposure but I don't remember noticing any unusually high sensitivity levels coming from my frenulum at any point.
    Anyway, for whatever reason the sensitivity argument doesn't seem to apply to my frenulum so I'm inclined to follow my aesthetic sensibilities here and they tell me to have it removed.

    After the Circumcision is done I'll probably get back to ball stretching but I'm not entirely decided. One result of my ideal penis poll was that 53% of women think that Low Hangers "look Gross", so that puts me off slightly. It's a little disheartening to learn that I have suceeded in altering my balls in a way which has made them "look gross" to most women. Although, another way of looking at this is that roughly half of all women are either aroused by (only 7%) or indifferent to (38%) low hangers, so if I am turned on by ballstretching then I might as well keep at it.
    I probably won't do any more PE unless I meet a girl who is really turned on by it (unlikely).

    OK, that's all for now. I'll post some Circumcision progress pics over the coming months and some before/after comparison pics once the scar has healed nicely.

    Circumcision Diary: Day 1

    I got cut today. Something i have wanted for 14 years.

    The surgeon was able to accomodate most of my requests except for a couple of little bits of of residual skin (one from an adhesion, one from a torn frenulum) which I wanted removed but he thought we might cause problems if we meddled with them, so we left them.

    My two big decisions were whether or not to remove the frenulum and whether to use dissolving stitches or non-dissolving stitches. I had already decided to remove the frenulum (a purely cosmetic preference) and my surgeon was happy to go along with this (although he noted that there wasn't much of my frenulum left to begin with, which apparently made the procedure a little trickier as well as semi-unnecessary).

    I had read some speculation that non-dissolving stitches were less likely to cause scarring but would need to be removed by a medical professional. Dissolving stitches will probably (though not always) dissolve after a week or so. This would negate the need for a stitch-removal session. My surgeon (when I mentioned this) offered to use non-dissolving stitches and remove them himself in a few weeks time. When I asked his opinion he wasn't convined that there was any difference in likelihood of scarring from either type of suture material so I deffered to his expertise and opted for the dissolving ones in the hope that they won't scar too much and won't need to be manually removed. I guess I chose the convenience of (probably) not requiring a follow up session over the anecdotal speculation that the one type of stitch was less likely to scar. Not an easy decision to make. The surgery is in my own home city. Travel-time is only about an hour each way so maybe I ought to have gone with the non-dissolving stitches and the removal session, though it's hard to give much creedence to the anecdotal information about scarring...

    I suppose I will find out over the next couple months if I have made the right choices here.

    I asked for just over an inch of inner skin to be retained and asked for a cut that was tight enough to ensure that the glans would always be exposed but not so tight that I would develop a "turkey neck". My surgeon drew some lines on my shaft to indicate where he would make the upper incision and I played a game of "higher or lower" until he had settled on a position I was happy with. I wanted 1 to 1 1/4 inches but not as much as 1 1/2 inches. I think I have gotten what i wanted but won't be sure until the bandage comes off.

    Parts of the operation, contrary to all other accounts I had read, were actually very painful. It seems that the left side of my penis was somewhat resistant to anaesthetic and the surgeon had to inject the anaesthetic three times: 1. initially, 2. after probing proved that I was not totally numb, 3. During the operation after I mentioned the pain I was experiencing. By the end of the operation I was finally pretty numb but much of it, I'm sad to say, was very uncomfortable.

    During the operation I mostly just closed my eyes and tried to relax. I occasionally asked what stage we were at (it went a lot slower than I expected). I had a look twice. Once after the sleeve had been removed (this was a sleeve-resection operation btw) and there was an gorey, red gap in my shaft skin and once after the suturing had been completed. It looked ok to me.

    The surgeon seemed to know his business and the operation took 100 mins which, to my knowledge, is quite long for an adult circumcision. I take that as a sign that he did a very scrupulous job. When the nurse remarked that the procedure had taken "more than an hour so far", he replied that this was normal for a private, adult circumcision as opposed to one performed in a hospital out of medical necessity where the cosmetic result was considered unimportant (25 mins).

    10 mins after the operation he had another look at the bandage to check that there was no bleeding. He prescribed me some mild antiseptic cream to apply twice a day once the bandage is removed (48 hrs after the op, this friday afternoon). He had apparently formerly advised patients to apply a second bandage once they removed the first but he has since come round to the opinion that the wound needs air to heal and is better off kept clean with the use of a mild antiseptic.

    I had arrived early to the clinic but the surgeon was able to see me right away as his earlier patient had not arrived. I spent a total of 3 hours in the clinic (100 mins on the table, 80 mins discussing, paying and waiting around) which adds up to a mere 5 hours out of the house when you add the 2 hour-long commutes. The whole operation cost £500 (£200 deposit made during the booking, £300 paid after the operation). Not bad all in all.

    So far no pain after the op. I will have to wait and see if I suffer from the notorious "nocturnal erection agony" that so many adult-circ'ed guys report.

    Here's a couple pictures. Not much to see yet. Just my bandaged cock. I'll post more pics once the bandage comes off.

My surgeon drew some lines on my shaft to indicate where he would make the upper incision and I played a game of "higher or lower" until he had settled on a position I was happy with. I wanted 1 to 1 1/4 inches but not as much as 1 1/2 inches. I think I have gotten what i wanted but won't be sure until the bandage comes off.

    Parts of the operation, contrary to all other accounts I had read, were actually very painful. It seems that the left side of my penis was somewhat resistant to anaesthetic and the surgeon had to inject the anaesthetic three times: 1. initially, 2. after probing proved that I was not totally numb, 3. During the operation after I mentioned the pain I was experiencing. By the end of the operation I was finally pretty numb but much of it, I'm sad to say, was very uncomfortable.

    During the operation I mostly just closed my eyes and tried to relax. I occasionally asked what stage we were at (it went a lot slower than I expected). I had a look twice. Once after the sleeve had been removed (this was a sleeve-resection operation btw) and there was an gorey, red gap in my shaft skin and once after the suturing had been completed. It looked ok to me.

    The surgeon seemed to know his business and the operation took 100 mins which, to my knowledge, is quite long for an adult circumcision. I take that as a sign that he did a very scrupulous job. When the nurse remarked that the procedure had taken "more than an hour so far", he replied that this was normal for a private, adult circumcision as opposed to one performed in a hospital out of medical necessity where the cosmetic result was considered unimportant (25 mins).

    10 mins after the operation he had another look at the bandage to check that there was no bleeding. He prescribed me some mild antiseptic cream to apply twice a day once the bandage is removed (48 hrs after the op, this friday afternoon). He had apparently formerly advised patients to apply a second bandage once they removed the first but he has since come round to the opinion that the wound needs air to heal and is better off kept clean with the use of a mild antiseptic.

    I had arrived early to the clinic but the surgeon was able to see me right away as his earlier patient had not arrived. I spent a total of 3 hours in the clinic (100 mins on the table, 80 mins discussing, paying and waiting around) which adds up to a mere 5 hours out of the house when you add the 2 hour-long commutes. The whole operation cost £500 (£200 deposit made during the booking, £300 paid after the operation). Not bad all in all.

    So far no pain after the op. I will have to wait and see if I suffer from the notorious "nocturnal erection agony" that so many adult-circ'ed guys report.

    Here's a couple pictures. Not much to see yet. Just my bandaged cock. I'll post more pics once the bandage comes off.

    Circumcision Diary: Day 4

    I took off the bandage yesterday morning. There's a lot of swelling down there now (I guess the bandage was keeping the swelling down). Everything looks ok. The stitches look very discreet so I suspect the overall result will be very cosmetically sound.

    Day 4 top.JPG

    The frenulum area looks a bit of a mess. It appears that one of the stitches had already come loose. I've heard (and seen in pictures) the frenulum excision tends to be the ugliest looking part during the healing process so hopefully it is better than it looks.

    Day 4 frenulum.jpg

    I'm soaking the wound in salted water twice a day (apparently this promotes healing).

    There's a tiny bit of blood seepage occasionally but nothing dramatic.

    Urination is a bit of a chaotic spray due to the swelling.

    I'm a little concerned about the frenulum but generally everything looks fine and the discomfort is minimal, though I am currently just staying home and wouldn't want to be out and about right now.

    What did they give you in terms of ointments/topicals?

    You also might give epson salt a try. Not sure what salt you're referring to. Yes, that would help a lot.

    What type of time-frame did they state in terms of the healing process?

    Looks like they did a good job. I would also suggest you use some bacitracin on the wound until it fully heals. This will greatly speed recovery. Do not worry too much on the swelling, that is perfectly normal.

    The Doc gave me two prescriptions:

    1. Fucidic acid cream. A very mild anti-septic which is theoretically mild enough to not inhibit skin growth like some anti-septics can. To be applied twice a day.
    2. Anti-biotics which I'm only supposed to acquire if the wound starts to look infected. I'm to phone the doc and ask his opinion and he'll tell me whether I ought to go get the prescription fulfilled.

    He also recommended Ibuprofen for general pain relief during healing, should I need it.

    Yes I meant epsom salt, this is what I'm using.

    I wasn't given any time frame but my understanding is that generally the stitches ought to dissolve or be removed after 10-14 days. Masturbation is considered safe after 3 weeks and sex after 6 weeks. I'm supposed to phone the Doc if the stitches are still present after 2 weeks so I can book an appointment for him to remove them. Hopefully they will dissolve properly and this won't be necessary.

    Circumcision Diary: Day 12

    Today I took out the stitches. Half of them had fallen out anyway (dissolvable), the other half I decided I ought to remove. I was supposed to contact the Doc to remove them if they were still there but I wasn't fazed by the prospect of doing it myself. I got a couple of needles and used them to pry the knots in the stitches loose. Once the knots were loose, pulling the stitches out was easy.

    The swelling is still there but it has gone down a little.

    Day 11 top.JPG

    The big story of the past week was that I appeared to have contracted a Urinary Tract Infection. The symptoms were the usual burning sensation when urinating followed by the sensation of urgently needing to urinate even when my bladder was empty already. The bandage and swelling seemed to compress my urethra so much that stuff could hardly get out of there. If i became aroused at any point in the first couple of days the pre-cum would just build up and then suddenly all come out at once later on. This is probably what brought about my UTI. A load of pre-cum and urine just resting in a quasi-blocked urethra is surely a perfect breeding environment for bacteria.

    Anyway, it was unpleasant for a while but now I'm over it. I found the symptoms seemed more pronounced after I had a bath and I'd read that baths (specifically the soap and shampoo) can irritate an infected urethra so maybe I ought to have been having showers instead. I also found that showers wash out the wound better than baths. It wasn't until I had a shower on Day 9 that I was able to have a properly good look at the wound and discover that one or two things had not quite gone right...

    Healing-wise it looks like a few things haven't turned out quite as well as I might have hoped. There's one place on the right side of my shaft where the two pieces of skin have not quite come together tightly and so there is a sort of gap or depression in the scar line where it really ought to be flush with the surrounding skin. This part was a bit separated to begin with, I guess it needed another stitch. I have a suspicion that something might have gotten lodged in there (specifically a hardened lump of the anti-septic cream I was told to apply twice a day) which prevented the wound from closing. This is just speculation though, I'm not sure if something was lodged in there or not, though that cream did tend to clump up and get stuck in places.

    Day 12 gap.JPG

    In another place an extraneous length of suture material was poking into the wound. I didn't realise this until a couple days ago as the wound can be a bit of a mess what with the scabs and bleeding and swelling and anti-septic cream. This caused a lot of discomfort and seems to have prevented the scar from closing up in that place too.

    I'm pretty disappointed in these little imperfections. Hopefully when everything is fully settled they will just be subtle depressions in the skin and not really noticeable. Maybe there's a chance these gaps might still heal up and knit together? Seems unlikely but I hope so anyway. I don't really want to go around with a cock that looks like it has an open wound in the side.

    It also appears that the frenulum wound (as I had suspected) had separated quite badly. It seems that the 2 or 3 stiches that were supposed to hold it together had just come undone in the first day or two. This means that my frenulum scar is probably going to be a broad, shallow plain of white scar tissue and not the discreet little line I had hoped for. The scab on the frenulum flaked away today which allowed me to remove the last stitches (including the one seen in the photo). There is still some of that murky, viscous fluid under the scab so I guess the scab came off a little early and the frenulum will take a little longer to heal.

    Day 12 fren.JPG

    In hindsight it would appear that I needn't have been concerned about the dissolvable stitches. They have left tiny pinhole marks which look like they will close up. Whether or not the stiches actually hold the wound together and do their job seems to be a more important issue than the type of suture used and whether it leaves any marks.
