Abstract

A short frenulum is not uncommon and is an important cause of male dyspareunia. Surgical frenuloplasty may alleviate symptoms, but there is a risk of residual scarring leading to further symptoms. Laser frenuloplasty, consisting of frenulum vaporization by laser CO2, is an alternative simple, safe and efficacious procedure. We report three cases of successful treatment of a short frenulum with laser CO2 with good aesthetical results and complete resolution of symptoms.
