Foreskin Restoration*
(Glans Re-covering)



"I was circumcised when I was a year old. I
remember my foreskin. I want my foreskin back."
A circumcised American male



   

 

        

The last photograph above (vaginal speculum stretching residual penile skin) has this written on the back: "The reason we have NORM [National Organization of Restoring Men] meetings is to help each other obtain the best results. This is the way not to stretch -- laterally. A lot of determination but lacking information."

*The term "foreskin restoration" refers to the various surgical and non-surgical procedures used to re-cover the glans of the circumcised penis. Jim Bigelow explains on pages 134-138 of the of the Second Edition of his book, The Joy of Uncircumcising! (Hourglass Book Publishing, 1995), what can and cannot be expected from these procedures.

[I know of two disastrous results following long, painful, expensive (one more than $10,000) attempts at surgical foreskin reconstruction. I would urge anyone thinking about undertaking any type of glans re-covering to read Dr. Bigelow's book and to contact one of the many NORM support groups in the U.S. and other countries.]
