Circumcision

Circumcision

Circumcision is a safe procedure for men which generally involves a surgical intervention to provide relief from a range of conditions, including:

  • Balanitis (swelling of the foreskin)
  • Balanoposthitis (inflammation of the tip and foreskin of the penis)
  • Paraphimosis (inability to return a retracted foreskin to its original position)
  • Phimosis (inability to retract the foreskin)

Our clinic offers two types of circumcision procedure:

Full or Classic Circumcision:

  • In this case, the entire foreskin is removed
  • The glans is completely exposed at all times
  • Either have a narrow or wide cuff behind the glands, depending on examination findings

Partial Circumcision:

  • The most popular procedure
  • Only remove the mechanical stricture – correcting the concern
  • It is executed exactly like a classical circumcision, except less foreskin is removed
  • The procedure is slightly more complicated and takes a little longer to perform
  • Recovery is a bit slower, requiring more focused after care.
  • A more natural appearance afterwards, compared to a classic circumcision
