What is circumcision?

Circumcision is the surgical removal of the foreskin – tissue covering the penis tip – due to various medical or non-medical reasons. There are different circumcision techniques, of which the following three are the most prevalent:

  • Open circumcision: The foreskin is cut-off using a stainless steel blade.
  • Laser circumcision: The urologist uses a laser beam to remove the foreskin.
  • Stapler circumcision: Foreskin removal is performed using a specialized stapler device.

Possible complications of circumcision are:

  • Injury to the glans penis
  • Excessive or too little skin removal
  • Epidermal cyst
  • Adhesion or keloid formation due to scarring

You should consult medical specialists like a urologist or general surgeon for adult male circumcision, but obstetricians can perform circumcision in infants, as circumcision complications are more common after non-healthcare professionals like mohels and priests perform surgery.

Generally, infancy is a more ideal time to undergo circumcision as it involves less pain and easier recovery, but circumcision is an elective procedure and can be safely performed at any age.

Generally, advanced circumcision procedures like stapler circumcision and laser circumcision are preferred over open circumcision surgery, but your doctor will decide the best procedure for you after a thorough diagnosis and physical examination.

Most patients recover completely within a couple of weeks, but you should get approval from your circumcision surgeon before starting strenuous activities like weight lifting, aerobic exercises, jogging, bicycle riding, etc.
