A very small cut in the skin is made, usually without scalpel. Given that you have two testicles, and therefore two deferens should make two incisions: one for each vas deferens, then they are tied off and cut the vas deferens. You may feel some tugging and pulling. The wound is closed with stitches. No precise extract points after surgery and they fall in 7 to 10 days.

The frenulum is a sheet of skin located on the underside of the penis that connects the glans – head of the penis with the foreskin, the hood of skin that covers it.
The presence of the frenulum can cause discomfort and pain during sex, usually to penetrate a vagina without proper lubrication. Moreover, in this case it is very common that the frenulum may break and started to bleed severely.
The man will regain full stimulation of the glans, penis is stretched a few inches and therefore a full erection that will take the patient to a more pleasurable sex, which he couldn’t perform before the surgery.
It is also more hygienic, and once operated not risk that someday you will tear the frenulum.
The surgery will be performed in Gynaecology Clinic Sants in a specialised operating room, and the technique used is simple because it simply consists in making a knife cut in the skin under local anesthesia with resorbable sutures (stitches fall alone).

A man has phimosis when the skin covering the glans does not allow to find it out, so it makes sex and hygiene very difficult, making them even painful
In children phimosis have to be operated when does not let urinate properly because the skin closes urine pass. In elderly people operates when annoying to have sex or personal hygiene, because you can not find the glans or it is very difficult to find it.
