Frenectomy (also known as a frenulectomy, frenulotomy or frenotomy) is the removal of a frenulum, a small fold of tissue that prevents an organ in the body from moving too far. It can refer to frenula in several places on the human body. It is related to frenuloplasty, a surgical alteration in a frenulum.

‚ÄčThe sooner the better for the Frenotomy to be performed due to lack of thickness of lingual frenum, along with minimal vascularity and innervation of the lingual frenum tissue. (Newborns are the ideal age for it)
