Adult and Teen Circumcision Clinic Information
He will assess the anatomy (size, shape, amount of loose skin) to decide the best method for the patient, as well as taking into account your religious preference, ethnic origin and customise the method most suitable for you.
This is in contrast to other doctors who only use one surgical technique for all patients.
He has a special interest in helping adult men who suffer from medical conditions such as Lichen Sclerosis (a skin condition that can affect the foreskin).
As an adult, you can get circumcision surgery at any age. The most common reasons for circumcision include:
• Constricted and painful foreskin, unable to be retracted back
• Recurrent balanitis (inflammation of the foreskin over the glans penis)
• Paraphimosis or painful foreskin that gets stuck in retracted position
• Cultural or religious reasons
• Hygiene reasons
Circumcision has not been shown to affect fertility, nor will circumcision enhance or detract from sexual pleasure for men or their partners.
• Congenital abnormalities of the penis
• Buried penis
• Bleeding disorders, and any other conditions affecting healing process.
After the surgery, you may get swelling after circumcision. In general, adult circumcision healing time may take a few weeks.
