    Cutting the frenum or muscle found underneath the tongue isn't a standard practice. In rare cases, it may be necessary, but i haven't heard of any scientific journals proving that cutting the frenum is beneficial to talking. The tongue, teeth and obicularis oris lip muscles are the primary factors affecting ones speech.

    Hold your tongue with your fingers and try to talk. It really affects it, doesn't it? Your tongue is instrumental in shaping your mouth and making the sounds.

    But I doubt your friend is a qualified doctor, so don't take his advice too seriously.

    Just because he had to go under that procedure doesn't mean that you'll have to do it as well. I don't think it's that common for you to start worrying about it.
