Changes after restoration

The reasons vary why a man chooses to restore his foreskin. It is a personal decision, and one that may not have any concrete explanation. Some may simply wish to feel whole and regain some sort control over their bodies. Others, however, may have very definite goals in mind, such as appearance or improved sensitivity. This section, which was added by visitor request, deals with the changes that happen to the penis after foreskin restoration. If you have a specific change you are interested in, please use the Contact form to request it be covered.

Glans penis

Whether foreskin restoration reduces keratin in the membranous surface of the glans penis, or indeed whether circumcision causes keratinization of the glans penis to begin with, is uncertain. Anecdotally, most men report an increase in sensitivity following full restoration. This may be because of decreased keratin, or simply because the foreskin is now able to keep the glans penis moist and protect it from friction and other irritation. Experiencing the gliding action of the foreskin during sex or masturbation for the first time may also be accountable, as it is a very different sensation to that of circumcised sex or masturbating using a lubricant.

Below are close-up photos of my glans penis before starting restoration, and again approximately one year following a full restoration (one in which the foreskin completely covers the glans penis at all times). The upper photos are unaltered. The lower photos have been equally enhanced to highlight the surface texture.

After restoration, the glans penis is visibly smoother and has a more natural color. It is also moist to the touch and, personally speaking, feels remarkably more sensitive. Both the appearance and feel seem to continue to improve as more time passes.

The only negative change is the apperance of pearly penile papules on the corona glandis. They are entirely harmless and roughly half of all men get them, but they occur with much greater frequency in those uncircumcised. Their cause is unknown, although some theorize it may be due to heat and/or dampness, which would explain why they are more common in those with foreskins. Some men seek to have the removed for cosmetic reasons. Home methods for removal abound, but none have been shown to be at all effective. They may be surgically removed, either by carbon laser or radiofrequency ablation.


It is impossible to predict how a penis will change during puberty and so circumcisions performed in childhood, even if they were intended to be loose, may lead to complications after the penis reaches its adult length and girth.

The ability of the remaining foreskin to comfortably glide up and down the erect penis during sex or masturbation will at best be severely limited and at worst altogether impossible.

There may not even be enough skin remaining to cover the erect penis, leading to pain during erections as the remaining foreskin and shaft skin tries to stretch beyond its ability, often puling the scrotal skin up the penis as well.

Below are photos of my erect penis, before and after foreskin restoration:

After restoration

Erections before restoration could sometimes be painful as the skin was pulled extremely tight. A considerable amount of scrotal skin was also pulled up the shaft, leading to further discomfort as the pubic hair on it was pulled during sex. Little to no gliding was comfortably possible. After three years of restoration, all of these problems have been eliminated. Enough foreskin has been regrown that around half of the glans penis remains covered when erect and there is more than enough slack to slide the foreskin forward and cover the glans penis completely. The shaft skin is loose and no scrotal skin is pulled forward. No erection, no matter how firm, ever causes discomfort.
