At Moorgate Andrology we can perform a circumcision on its own or as part of another surgical procedure such as male enhancement or simply known as penis enlargement surgery. Here is an overview of how the circumcision penis procedure works.
All consultations are PRIVATE & DISCREET
Circumcision is a minor surgical penile procedure that involves the removal of the skin that covers the head (glans) of the penis. It is performed on babies and young boys for religious reasons but many adult men also choose to have a circumcision because they prefer the look of their penis without a foreskin (or their partner does). Although some men choose to have a circumcision because it is more hygienic.
In other cases, men have little choice because the foreskin has become very tight, to the point that it is painful or impossible to retract the foreskin over the head of the penis. This condition is called phimosis, and can be caused by a number of reasons. Phimosis is treated by circumcision should the condition be severe.
A male circumcision usually takes under one hour.
If you feel like a circumcision is the right answer for you, get in touch and one of our patient co-ordinators will guide you through the treatment process.
Many Urologists believe that there are advantages to having your penis circumcised.
Some of these reasons include:
1. You may find your penis much easier to wash around the head. To clean effectively you need to retract the foreskin over the head. If you have pain on retraction of the foreskin (phimosis) this can be difficult.
2. Doctors report that there may be a reduced risk of sexually transmitted diseases in men who have been circumcised. It is very important however that you practice safe sex initiatives after a circumcision.
3. Reduced risk of penile cancer.
4. Reduced sensitivity in the penis head may result in a longer sexual performance.
Yes. Most circumcision procedures are performed under local anaesthetic. You can opt to have sedation or even a general anaesthetic if you prefer. If you choose sedation or general anaesthesia it may be a little more expensive and you will be at the hospital for a longer period. You will be able to discuss your anaesthesia with the Urologist at your consultation.
Just after getting circumcised your penis will feel sore, this is perfectly normal and this soreness may last for around seven to ten days. You may resume sexual activities after around four to six weeks. Your Urologist will confirm when you can resume sexual activities. Don’t worry if you experience nocturnal erections but leave them to subside on their own.
Following your circumcision procedure the Surgeon may prescribe antibiotics to help prevent infection. Make sure that you complete the course of antibiotics, even if you feel better sooner than you thought. It may help to keep the penis upright within your underwear. Some men prefer to wear snug underwear whereas some men do better with loose fitting boxer shorts. Try and avoid strenuous exercise for around one month, this is especially true of contact sports.
