Suitable candidates for a circumcision

Circumcision is suitable for males experiencing medical problems associated with the foreskin of the penis, or for adult males for aesthetic reasons.

Circumcision procedure

Circumcision is normally performed using intravenous sedation. During the procedure the foreskin is shortened considerably and leaves the tip of the penis half or even fully exposed. Circumcision (removal of the foreskin) takes half an hour to perform. After an hour or two the anaesthetic wears off and complete sensation is returned to your penis.

What to expect?

Following circumcision, it is best to take a few days to rest. The penis can be swollen and reddened or blueish for about a week. In the first few days following surgery, you may experience a burning sensation while urinating. For the first three days following circumcision, we advise you to change the bandage each time you urinate. Then it is best to take a daily bath in lukewarm water without any soap. We advise you to wear supportive underwear (no boxer shorts) and to keep the penis pointing upwards towards the navel to reduce the swelling more quickly. If necessary you can take paracetamol or apply local anaesthetic cream if you experience any pain. After a couple of weeks, a protective layer will have formed on the tip of the penis and the uncomfortable feeling will be gone. It is best to wait between three to four weeks after the procedure before swimming or playing any sport again. The stitches used during circumcision will dissolve by themselves and fall out after 7 to 14 days. Between four and six weeks after the procedure sex and masturbation is possible once more.
