Circumcision is a practice carried out in many countries. This practice of removing the foreskin (prepuce) from the penis sometimes happens shortly after birth. In some cultures, it happens when the boy is significantly older. Circumcision may be performed as a part of a religious ritual. In some countries, it’s simply a societal practice for aesthetics, with little to no religious meaning.
For whatever reason, and at whatever age, a man was circumcised, more and more are turning to foreskin restoration, to get back what they have lost.
What is Foreskin Restoration?
Foreskin restoration refers to recreating the foreskin that was lost during circumcision, to cover the glans of the penis. There are two methods of foreskin restoration:
- Surgical reconstruction, and
- Non-surgical restoration.
The term “foreskin restoration” is a bit of a misnomer. The foreskin can never truly be recreated. Natural foreskin contain specialized nerve endings and blood vessels, which come into play during sex. Some of this can be restored; however, it can never be fully restored to its natural state. The sensitivity that can be restored can enhance your sex life, as well as even improve personal comfort, according to some men.
Non-Surgical Foreskin Restoration
Non-surgical foreskin restoration techniques were first developed in the 1970s. The techniques are based on tissue expansion, much like other PE enlargement goals. Through tension, microtears happen at the cellular level, and during their repair result in new cellular growth. Because this is actually new cellular growth, the increase in skin is permanent.
Often known as “tugging,” there are several methods of non-surgical foreskin restoration. Devises, often known as All Day Stretchers (ADS) are popular because they are relatively inexpensive and very effective.
TLC Tugger for Foreskin Restoration
These gentle ADS devices are designed for circumcised men who still have some slack in their penile skin, when flaccid. For men who were cut “tight” manual exercises may be needed first, to create a little bit of slack, before transitioning to a TLC Tugger.

Manual Foreskin Restoration
In addition to devices designed to provide the tension on the skin of the penis, to begin the restoration process, there are manual exercises that can be done as well. This is more time consuming than wearing an ADS device, but when done properly and consistently can give great results.
One of the most common is to use the OK grip with both hands:
- Place one hand along your circumcision scar
- Place the other hand at the base of the shaft.
- Gently pull the hands apart, creating tension along the skin.
- Hold for up to 30 seconds.
- Release and relax for 15 seconds, to allow blood to return to the tissues.
- Repeat 20 to 40 times.
This tugs the outer skin. To tug the inner foreskin, move the upper hand to just below the corona of the penis, above your circumcision scar.
As always, ease into this routine. Don’t try to do too much, too quickly. Always listen to your body cues! Like PE, tugging should NEVER hurt. After a foreskin restoration session, the skin of your penis may look a little red and feel warm, as the body sends an increased blood supply to the area, but you should never feel pain or soreness.
As with penis enlargement, and other male enhancement goals, foreskin restoration takes time. This is a marathon, not a sprint. However, with time, consistency and effort, you can get back much of what was taken from you!
