Head Split

Head splitting is the bisection of the glans of the penis. The procedure is usually carried out using a scalpel or surgical scissors (although cauterizing, electronic cauterizing or laser may also be used). The wound often needs to be cauterized, either with Silver Nitrate or with heat. Post-procedural bleeding is relatively heavy and tends to last several days.

Often men decide to get a meatotomy before later progressing to a full head split.
