Is foreskin restoration permanent?

Is foreskin restoration permanent?

There are lots of threads here about foreskin restoration - the how-to, why, advantages and disadvantages. But there is little information available about the longer term results.

Are there any members here who have successfully been down the restoration path? If so, I have some questions.

Is it permanent? Or does it require maintenance?
Some have claimed that the loosening of the skin has given them erect length gains as well. Has that been your experience?
Does restoration result in a shorter flaccid?

Thanks.

Although incomplete my restoration results have not changed since I stopped several years ago. No maintenance. Can’t say if it gives length gains. I doubt it since the methods used are only applied to the skin. I’ve always been a grower. My flaccid is rarely longer than 3 inches. That doesn’t seem to have changed.

I’m curious about your statement the other day about “most” Aussies being cut. I had the opposite impression.

Others successful restorers that I know of: damfino, aeolus9, and others in this photo thread.

Thanks for your reply.

I’ve read anecdotal reports that some men who were tightly cut experienced length gains as a result of restoration. If that really is the case, perhaps it may also stand to reason that some who experience “newbie gains” do so as a result of freeing-up more skin and less restriction of the erection - absolutely no proof though, just a random thought.

When I was at boarding school, uncut boys were indeed a novelty - in my House of about 70 boys, only one was uncircumcised - he got teased a lot! During my adult life, my experience in change rooms at pools and gyms is about the same, uncircumcised men tend to be the exception rather than the norm - and that includes men one or two generations younger than me. But that is only my experience. When I lived in the UK, it was the direct opposite - I was the novelty! I always felt jealous of my entire brothers, and a bit cheated.

Are you glad you went down the restoration path? Have your partner’s responses been positive?

Like westla, I stopped restoring a few years ago, and recently started up again. I noticed an almost immediate 1/8” gain in coverage, so I’m guessing that’s what I “lost” in the years of concentrating on PE instead of foreskin restoration.

I can’t be sure on the second question, because there was such a long period of inactivity. I doubt that there was much influence.

I did not notice a shorter flaccid after foreskin restoration. I had always been a grower, but after PE I developed a much nicer flaccid hang that seems to be hanging around even now. :)

Yes, “restored” skin is permanent. There may be a minor amount of retraction following cessation of active restoration, but the bulk of new skin grown remains for life.

Many restorers have reported increased flaccid length after gaining a significant amount of skin, but results are unique to the individual.

Good luck with FR—it takes lots of time and patience, not unlike PE.

I guess the next question is, should I tell my partner? Or should I just one day exclaim “Quick, come and have a look at this! I’ve grow a foreskin! Wonder how that happened?” :chuckle:

Oh, yes. I’m glad I did it and, like Damfino, I’ve recently started up again. It takes literally hours every single day to accomplish this. Many, including myself, do not always stick with the plan. I have a half dozen devices that were supposed to make it easier, but I’ve gone back to the basic t-tape method. The major drawback is you must get erect to put the tape on. That sometimes leads to masturbation which can mess up your newly applied tape. Mostly, however, getting erect takes time. Both to get it up and to let it go down before you can use the tape. If you’re late for work it can be a hassle. Still, it’s nearly invisible even under normally tight jeans and it’s easy enough to open and close for urination.

Since I’m partly restored my partners haven’t noticed much. I haven’t been in a long-term relationship for years so the only people who see my penis usually see it erect. Since I have only 3/4 coverage flaccid there’s no difference in my erect appearance compared to before I started restoration. That’s one of the reasons I’ve started again. I want full coverage erect. I have many more years of work to accomplish that.

Since it takes years to have a different looking penis anyone who regularly sees you nude will probably notice as things progress. A sudden revelation is probably not likely.

Yes. But as was said, if you cease tugging, some of the apparent gain (maybe 10% of the new slack) will recede because it was actually distortion of the existing skin vs new skin cells.

No, but if you want to never have your glans get uncovered, you’ll want to wear a retainer like the Your-Skin Cone (full disclosure - I sell it). The reason is we can’t restore a frenulum to draw the skin over the glans after an erection subsides, and we can’t replace the thicker layer of shear muscle cells at the natural preputial sphincter. So wear a retainer 24/7 and your skin will gradually conform to that tapered shape.

I’ve never heard of that. I can’t imagine how pulling on your penis could result in it getting shorter.

Unless you’re talking about one of the devices like the TLC-X (full disclosure - I sell it) which pushes on the glans. The reason I don’t think it’s capable of making you shorter is that the cross-sectional area of the glans-pushing part is like 5 to 10 times the cross-sectional area of just the skin tube at the perimeter. So the STRESS in the skin is like 5 to 10 times the STRESS in the shaft. (Stress is Force divided by Area). The skin stress is sufficient to induce growth. The shaft stress is way below the threshhold to induce change.

My erect length increased about 1/4” during the 4 years it took me to grow 4” of new slack skin, using the TLC Tugger (full disclosure - I sell it) as close to 24/7 as I could manage with comfortable tension.

Cheers,
-Ron

I am still restoring and use a TLC Tugger to do it. I have been doing FR for 18 months.

Is it permanent? Or does it require maintenance? It does not require maintenance, but it does require more foreskin than a nature foreskin to keep same coverage.

Some have claimed that the loosening of the skin has given them erect length gains as well. Has that been your experience? I was cut pretty tight. I did gain about 1/4 inch BPEL in the first year of FR. I was not doing PE at all, so I attribute the BPEL gains to gaining slack skin.

Does restoration result in a shorter flaccid? I have not had this happen to me. The opposite happened to me. I think I hang a little lower now.

Are you glad you went down the restoration path? Yes, although it is very slow for me.

Have your partner’s responses been positive? Yes. My wife is supportive.

Happy gains,


4Foreskin ;)

Thanks to all who have replied - your comments have allayed my main concerns.

In all honesty, the main reason for wanting to restore has not so much to do with sensitivity issues, I haven’t found this a problem although any extra I’m sure will be welcome (besides, I don’t know what I’m missing - it may be more than I imagined), it has more to do with aesthetics. Because of the extra skin covering the glans, men who are entire look larger there - I suppose they are, there is more skin. And I’ve always wondered what it would be like to be able to masturbate without the need of messy lube. From what I can gather, sex has different sensations for uncut men - the mechanics are different. Rather than being mostly external friction there is internal “friction” as well. Although I guess it is possible for uncut men to manually “anchor” their extra skin and achieve external stimulation only, it is very difficult for cut men (especially those who are tightly cut) to experience these internal friction sensations. Makes me feel cheated.

After looking around and trying cumbersome tape methods, I opted for (and have ordered) one of Ron’s devices. They are reasonably priced and seem convenient. For me that is an important consideration - because of the longer term nature of the project, ease of use is going to be a relevant factor - if it’s too difficult to use or too time consuming to set-up, there is more likelihood that I will not follow it through to completion.

I’ll note my experiences in my Progress Report …. we’ll see how we go. :)

Many thanks again.

Will someone please explain why cut men have a much more difficult time than uncut men gaining additional foreskin? I’m uncut and hate that I continue accumulating more and more foreskin. I don’t set out to, it just comes a result of stretching. I’m actually trying to find ways to drastically slow the increases in foreskin, anyone have any ideas? I know this is essentially the opposite of what the aim of this thread is, but I’ve had limited success when I make my own threads about how one might possibly go about slowing the accumulation of foreskin.

trunksdarklord - I’ll take any you can spare! I envy you! :chuckle:
Seriously though, cut men are trying to make something out of virtually nothing. If you look at the ways that we try to restore foreskins, it’s slow and difficult, especially at the start. However, once you get going, it gets a bit easier - still slow though!
Regarding stopping growth of more skin, I guess it depends on what sort of routine you follow. If you are a jelqer, I can easily see how it might happen and I don’t know how you’d go about avoiding it - apart from stopping. If you hang or use an ADS, try retracting the foreskin fully before attaching the weight/device. I’m sure some of our uncut members have their own methods for dealing with this situation, but given the title of this thread, I’m not hopeful that they’ll drop by.
Hope it has been a help anyway.

In your situation I would switch to that ADS that grips the glans with a soft silicone sleeve that you flip inside out. I saw it in on ebay, don’t know what it’s called, but I DON’T sell it.
