This site discusses phimosis in its specific forms of phimotic ring, frenulum breve, adhesions or skinbridges. During erection these conditions inhibit the relationship between foreskin and glans. This functionally
restricts the erection, and thus has an effect on the sexuality. With
our culture's attitudes on health care, it would be appropriate to monitor
boys before puberty and encourage early prevention.
2012 : note from author: My previous idea of monitoring boys before puberty is impractical, unecessary and now only of historical interest. please see Postscript.

your self diagnosis is accurate you have frenulum breve,
most pics and most frenulums do join at base of the glans a picture
of one joining at the tip of the penis may be helpful for the general
information if you`ve got a web cam, and could endure the pain while
retracting for a quick shot, ... before getting an op.
