HOW DOES IT WORK?

How does circumcision work?

Circumcision is an outpatient procedure. It can be done under general or local anaesthesia but the former is always recommended for children. Before undergoing the procedure, you will have a short consultation with your surgeon to discuss your medical history and medications.

The procedure itself begins after the anaesthesia has taken effect:
1. Your surgeon will make an incision below the head of your penis. The foreskin will then be removed using a forceps.
2. Then the remaining edges of the skin will be attached using dissolvable stitches.

What should I expect from this procedure?

Circumcision is a short procedure that is done on an outpatient basis. It is recommended to be performed on males starting from the age of 5. This may differ based on your country of residence and personal circumstances. After the surgery, you may notice some swelling, bruising or redness. There may be some pain and you can take painkillers. Make sure to speak to your doctor about what underwear might be the most suitable, you can expect to return to your daily routine within a few days.
