So, with that high chance of bleeding, she would recommend GA, which she does not recommend for a baby his age unless there is a good reason. If he was not feeding, etc. She did tell me if I see other things arise because of his ties, then we will revisit the idea of snipping them.
My son's was very thick, tight, and came all the way down to his gums. It was clipped in office by an ENT with a local. It literally took a min, maybe 90 seconds. My son had also fallen and torn it several times and it was very painful for him.

Honestly most pedis don't have much experience in this dept. Have you emailed with dr kotlow? He's super friendly and quick to respond, he may request pics too. I seriously doubt he would recommend GA and he's the tt expert.
