I Seem To Be Cut Much Lower Than Many People On Here, What Challenges Would That Present For Restoration?
By - butter-cutts
I see having more inner skin as an advantage because it takes longer to grow. My cut is low as well and I already started with 1 inch to 1.5 inches all around and I am working more on outer skin which is bringing the scar line closer to the glans. I am a CI-3 and my scar line is right on the edge of the corona almost covering it now. With using the DTR tugger and MM3 I have seen good progress by providing a better balance with outer and inner skin.
Thank you for sharing. I guess 1-1.5 inches of inner skin would certainly be on the low side then right? I hesitate to call myself "low" because of some of the extremely low adult circs I've seen on reddit threads but certainly I have less inner skin than any other cut penis I have seen on a man cut at birth...
I think I got it backwards I think having more inner skin is actually a high cut and having little to barely any inner skin is a low cut. When the scar line is closer to the glans it is a low cut if the scar line is closer to the scrotum it is a high cut. 1.25 inches of inner skin is a lot and I have noticed that adult circumcisions tend to have very little inner skin.
You are correct. A higher cut would result in more inner skin, the high vs low thing is from a front facing perspective, not a first person one.
I see many guys seem to have the scarline almost half way down their shaft, I feel like I have much less inner skin than the average neonatal circd guy (maybe I'm generalizing on that, idk).
Keep in mind too, I mean 1.25 inches of inner skin while erect and I am 6 inches when erect, so in relation to the rest of me penis, it looks like much less than what a lot of people seem to be starting with, which I was why I was curious.
At a CI-3 it can look like I have barely any inner skin but once I pull back the scar goes a little over halfway down the shaft. Even while erect that is a good amount of inner skin to have as a lot of guys have even less than an inch. Every guys cut is different and the balance goes back and forth.
I wish I had 1.5 inches of inner skin. I have barely one quarter of an inch both flaccid and erect. Makes grabbing at the scar line very difficult.
How 'long' is your glans? Someone correct me if I'm wrong, shouldn't 1.5 inches of inner skin be almost enough to cover a glans that is 1.5 inches from tip to corona?
In theory, you're right. But you do lose length to inner skin as for some guys, there takes a significant amount of bunching to "push" that inner skin onto the glans naturally, so it really depends on the situation, we're not al symmetrical.
If I do MM3 my scarline extends well beyond my glans, however if I were to gently roll "foreskin" forward while flaccid, my scarline would only reach about halfway up as it folds over the corona. Some men who have less inner skin than I currently do may still have more glans coverage if they're glans is more tapered instead of uniform in relation to their shaft.
I haven't actually measured my glans but I don't think it is any larger than average really.
I only have like around 5% FEC and that is a recent development, I was cut very tight and had no FEC when I started with manual methods a few months ago.
I have less inner than outer. This means more inflation time trying to work the inner skin, which (for me anyway) also seems to grow slower. I spend more than half my time inflated, yet feel like my outer skin is still more. As I understand it, the other challenge we'll share is sensitivity related on account of the deficit. We'll get there though.
KoT 👊 🤗
Of course, everyone including cuts, intacts and restored have more outer skin than inner, the thing is that the inner skin will just goes on the glans, like 4cm and the outer skin is on the road AND on the glans so 4cm + 11cm if you see
I think we're describing our *proportions* / ratios versus other (particularly circumcised) penises we see, rather than literal measurements of *total* inner vs outer, if that makes sense? To your point, it would be problematic if we literally had more inner than outer.
Yep, the white mucous only has to stay in!
But sensitivity will be better if more inner skin is grown, correct? I wonder if inner skin seems to grow slower since did there’s less of it there’s less to notice. As in if someone has 3 inches of skin that doubles in a year, or 1 inch that doubles in a year, they grow at the same rate but since there’s more of one then it appears to grow faster. But that’s just me thinking out loud without research on the rates of growth of inner vs outer
That's the goal and I don't know of actual research on growth rates. Anecdotal wisdom from here suggests inner may be slower / take longer and typically prefers inflation, so that's what I'm doing most of the day. I have to wonder if that's the sort of thing where we'll improve our understanding in 10 or 20 years, look back and think "if I only did my inner growth would have been faster!" There's probably something in there about wishes and horses somewhere for me... 😄
I have calipers, but I've been lazy about measuring progress using them. In any case, we'll tug our way there together.
It's good to hear that your skin is becoming more mobile with MM3. I can't speak for the DTR as I've never used it, (original TLC here,) but a combination of daily device tugging and intermittent manual throughout the day has given me consistent progress over the past few years. And I started close to a CI-1 as well. Take it with a grain of salt as I'm still not advanced in my own journey, but just begin to grow skin of any kind. It's not of huge relevance in the beginning stages, but if you can tug closer to the scarline, even better.
Plenty of time to even out the deficits along the way into and past the "Hump" stages where you're going to get a better judge of where things will end up sitting.
All these would have been avoided if circumcision wasn’t a thing. So unnecessary. Barbaric. Stupid even.
Yeup, circumcision has harmed my body image, my mental health as a whole, my relationship with my parents, my trust in medical professionals...the list goes on and on and I didn't even get into the actual tissue that it harmed/eliminated.
