What is Circumcision?

Circumcision is a surgical procedure that involves the removal of the foreskin covering the head of the penis. While often associated with cultural or religious practices, some individuals opt for adult circumcision for various reasons, including medical, personal, or aesthetic considerations.\

Medical Reasons for Adult Circumcision

Phimosis

Phimosis is a condition where the foreskin is too tight, making it difficult or impossible to retract over the glans. Adult circumcision can be a solution to alleviate this issue.

Balanitis

Balanitis refers to the inflammation of the glans or head of the penis. In some cases, adult circumcision is recommended to prevent recurrent balanitis.

Preventive Measures

Some individuals choose circumcision as a preventive measure against certain infections, including sexually transmitted infections (STIs) like HIV.

Who is a Good Candidate?

You Are a Good Candidate for Circumcision If:

Considering adult circumcision is a significant decision, and the choice to undergo the procedure is often influenced by various factors. Here are some indications that you may be a good candidate for adult circumcision:

  • • If you struggle with phimosis, where the foreskin is too tight to retract over the glans, adult circumcision can be a suitable solution. This condition can cause discomfort and hinder proper hygiene.
  • •  Individuals experiencing recurrent balanitis, inflammation of the glans or head of the penis, may find relief through adult circumcision. This procedure can prevent the occurrence of balanitis, improving overall penile health.
  • •  Some opt for adult circumcision as a preventive measure against infections, including sexually transmitted infections (STIs) like HIV. This choice is often made for health and safety reasons.
  • •  For personal or aesthetic reasons, individuals may choose adult circumcision. This could be based on individual preferences, cultural influences, or a desire for a certain appearance.

The Procedure

Surgical Techniques

Adult circumcision can be performed using various surgical techniques, including the sleeve technique and the dorsal slit technique. During the procedure, the surgeon removes the foreskin, leaving the head of the penis exposed.

Anesthesia

Adult circumcision is typically performed under local anesthesia to numb the area. General anesthesia may be used for individuals who prefer to be asleep during the procedure.

Duration

The surgery usually takes about 30 minutes to an hour, and patients can return home on the same day.

Recovery

Immediate Postoperative Period

Dressing and Bandages

After the procedure, the patient’s penis is typically covered with a dressing to protect the surgical site.

Rest and Avoidance of Strenuous Activities

Rest is crucial during the initial days post-circumcision, and individuals are advised to avoid strenuous activities to facilitate proper healing.

Long-Term Recovery

Pain Management

While discomfort is common initially, it can be managed with prescribed pain medications. Over-the-counter pain relievers may also be recommended.

Hygiene Practices

Maintaining good hygiene is essential during recovery to prevent infection. Patients are advised to keep the area clean and dry.

Possible Complications

Bleeding

Minimal bleeding is normal after circumcision. However, persistent or excessive bleeding should be reported to the surgeon.

Infection

Infection is a potential risk. Signs of infection include increased redness, swelling, and discharge. Timely medical attention is crucial if infection is suspected.

Changes in Sensation

Some individuals may experience changes in sensation, including increased or decreased sensitivity, which is usually temporary.
