About Circumcision

Circumcision is the surgical removal of foreskin, or prepuce of the penis, exposing the "glans" or head of the penis. It is usually performed for religious or cultural reasons and some medical conditions.

Circumcision has not been shown to negatively impact sexual functions.

Circumcision for Babies & Infants Brisbane

The optimal time to perform a circumcision is when the child is first born. Dr. Wong uses topical anaesthetic cream prior to the procedure. He uses a plastic device (either plastibell or circumplast) for baby circumcisions.

The use of this device reduces the risk of bleeding complications compared to other methods. The plastic device is inserted under the foreskin to separate it from the penis. The device is secured with a ligature and then the excess foreskin is removed. The plastic device will detach with the redundant foreskin in 7-14 days. Dr Wong will review the child after 1 week, there is no fee for the follow up appointment. Dr Wong is also on call after hours if you have any concerns. Dr Wong is experienced using both Plastibell (the original plastic device) as well as the new CircumPlast device for babies.

After the procedure, the baby can be bathed and diapered as usual, no dressing is required.
