This small surgery is done to remove the frenulum, a small fold of tissue that prevents an organ in the body from moving too far.

Strongly inserted frenulums may cause awkward mobility of the lip or tooth separation.

Another surgical technique is the Z-plasty, normally used for bigger frenulums.

The electro-scalpel both cuts and coagulates as needed. So, healing is fast and without stitches.
