Circumcision

Circumcision is surgery to remove the foreskin of the penis. The foreskin is the fold of skin that covers the tip of the penis.

Some men seek a circumcision to improve hygiene, sexual and cosmetic/aesthetic reasons, cultural, as well as related health issues.

 

Medical reasons can include:

PHIMOSIS - The most frequent indication for circumcision is Phimosis. This problem prevents and restricts the foreskin from retracting. It may be that the restriction is only subtle and only becomes evident during erection. 

 

PARAPHIMOSIS - Paraphimosis is the entrapment of the foreskin behind the rim of the head of the Penis & can be dangerous and may require urgent corrective surgery.

FRENULUM - Frequent painful tearing of the Frenulum is often a reason for adult circumcision.

BALANOPOSTHITIS - This refers to the occurrence of balanitis and posthitis (infection of the foreskin) infections occurring in combination that causes an inflammation of the glans. 

RREGULARITIES - Long foreskins, trapped hairs and skin problems involving growths and rashes are all reasons for adult circumcision.

It is considered a simple procedure performed under a general anaesthetic, you will not feel anything. Panadol can be recommended for any post-operative pain relief. Bruising or swelling may be evident, but that will reside. No sexual intercourse for up to six weeks following the circumcision. The erection may be painful and will interfere with the healing process.
