Circumcision Surgery for Men

Some men were not circumcised as an infant, and either desire circumcision to change the appearance of their penis or have problems with their foreskin. Foreskin can tighten over the glans or head of the penis and can be difficult to pull back to maintain good hygiene and can be a source of discomfort with erection.

Some men who were circumcised at birth are not pleased with the cosmetic appearance of their penile skin. Sometimes excess skin can be present on the undershaft (ventral) of the penis, which causes a “hooded” appearance to the penis. In other situations, too much skin can be removed from the undershaft (ventral) part of the penis, which causes a webbed appearance to the penis. Men may wish to correct the penoscrotal webbing as it can make the penis appear shorter than actual length.

Circumcision: What to Expect

Circumcision and circumcision revision are outpatient procedure performed under sedation. Limitations following circumcision relate to avoiding sexual intimacy and erection for six to eight weeks post-op.
