    Frenuloplasty - is a second procedure a safe option?

    I am a male in my late 20s seeking professional advice. I had a frenuloplasty done approx 3 years ago which did not completely relieve tightness and forward bending of the head of the penis. I consulted the same surgeon shortly after the healing period and asked whether it would be possible to do another procedure, he responded by saying that there can be complications as it is close to the urethra and the frenular artery may risk being cut. I have consulted another urologist who is willing to perform a frenuloplasty. I am unsure whether I should be worried about the previously mentioned risks of my previous urologist who performed the original procedure.

    Should I go ahead with a second procedure and should I be feeling confident and safe that a second frenuloplasty will involve minimal risk or should I leave it as it is?

    I am in a slight dilemma and unsure as to what decision to make. Any answers and clarification are much appreciated.
