Shaft Skin

The part of the penile sheath that covers the shaft from the pubic area up to the intact foreskin or circumcision scar. During non-surgical restoration, stretching this sheath along with any remaining inner foreskin stimulates mitoses, which creates new skin cells and ultimately a faux foreskin.

An intact penis has three types of skin, specifically the shaft skin, the outer foreskin, and the inner foreskin. The circumcised penis is covered mainly with only shaft skin, and often a remnant of the inner (mucosal) foreskin.
