Circumcision is the surgical removal of the skin covering the tip of the penis. it cut off part of the too-tight foreskin so that the glans of the penis can be exposed. The operation in an adult usually takes about 30 to 45 minutes and can be performed as a day surgery under local anaesthesia. No hospitalization is required.


When the foreskin become too tight or too long, it may cause the following problems:


  • It may bulge during urination if the foreskin does not separate from the glans and covers the urethral opening.
  • If the foreskin is tight, it can get stuck at the root of the penis after retraction and cause severe pain. 
  • If the foreskin is very long and the penis cannot be cleaned thoroughly, this can cause recurrent infection and inflammation. 


Should all males be circumcised?


Not all men should consider getting circumcised, but some of the older children or adults may need circumcision to treat several conditions, including:


  • Phimosis (the inability to retract the foreskin)
  • Infection of the penis
  • 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)


Preparing for the circumcision


  1. Follow the instructions of the anathesiologist about avoiding food and drink before surgery. Fasting is usually necessary starting about six hours.
  2. If necessary, either local or general anaesthesia should always be used.


During the procedure


  • You may usually have a general anaesthetic, which will numb your penis and the surrounding area. The procedure takes about 30 minutes.

  • The foreskin is removed behind the head of the penis

  • Applying a little dressing to the end of the penis may reduce the stinging sensation during urination

  • Patients should be permitted to go home after the surgery if the patient’s condition was stable 


Follow-up and recovery


  • Your doctor will give you specific instructions on how to care for your incision and lessen your pain.

  • You may gently remove your bandage when you get home, be careful do not wash directly over your incision.

  • Recovery time is generally 2-3 days, you can return to daily activities within 2-4 weeks.

  • Short-term impact due to a small amount of the anaesthetic, which may still remain in your body, so it is never a good idea to drive yourself home from surgery, drink alcohol, sign any important documents etc. within 24 hours.
