Information on Circumcision for Newborns & Young Boys

Let us take care of you in a Safe & Comfortable Environment

Circumcision Information

Dr Wong personally perform all circumcision procedures himself in our clinic. He has many years experience with this type of surgery.

The optimal time to perform circumcision for your baby boy is between 4 weeks to 3 months after birth.

Parents will be given anaesthetic (numbing) cream at the time of booking, so this can be applied to the penis 1-2 hours prior to the procedure.

Dr. Wong is experienced with all 3 methods of performing newborn circumcision including plastibell circumcision. He will customise the surgery based on the anatomy and needs of your boy.

This is in contrast to some doctors who only know one method and only offer one method, as there are pros and cons with each method.

If a plastic device is used, it is secured with a suture with the excess foreskin removed. The plastic device will detach with the redundant foreskin in 7-14 days. Aftercare follow up consultation in 1 week.

If you have any issues, we will provide you with after hours number to call for advice.

Indications:
• Religious or cultural reasons
• Prevention of future inflammation or infection such as phimosis, balanitis
• Hygiene reasons

Contrainindications:
• Congenital abnormalities, for example, if the urethra opening is not on penis tip such as hypospadias or epispadias
• Chordee, or downward curvature of the penis
• Buried penis
• Sick or unstable babies
• Bleeding disorders
