How long after a circumcision will it take for the frenulum to return to normal?

The normal state of the frenulum of the penis is to connect the foreskin to the glans and to restrict its movement beyond a certain point. During circumcision, the foreskin is removed along with the connecting portion of the frenulum. Therefore, the frenulum will not heal to "normal", but should heal to some other state. If you feel there is a problem with the healing of the frenulum you should see a doctor.
