Procedure Details

Is adult circumcision painful?

  • The procedure itself is performed under local anesthesia, which numbs the area effectively, ensuring no pain is felt during the operation. Post-operative discomfort is typically mild and manageable with prescribed medications.

How long does an adult circumcision take?

  • The adult circumcision procedure generally takes 30 minutes to one hour to complete. This duration can vary slightly depending on individual factors such as the specific surgical technique used and the patient’s unique anatomical considerations.


What is the recovery time for adult circumcision?

  • After an adult circumcision, there are a few days of aftercare to ensure safe and faster healing. Key aspects include managing dressings and covering the affected area, and monitoring for normal healing, pain management, and avoiding certain activities like sexual activity and heavy lifting. Patients can return to normal sexual activity after 4 weeks. It’s also advised to avoid alcohol and smoking to facilitate better healing.

How much time should I take off from work after the circumcision procedure?

  • The amount of time you should take off work after an adult circumcision depends largely on the type of job you have. Many patients are able to return to light, non-physically demanding work as soon as the next day, provided they feel comfortable. However, if your job involves heavy lifting, strenuous activities, or extensive movement, it may be advisable to take more time off to ensure proper healing. Generally, a few days to a week off can be sufficient for most patients.

Are there any special care instructions I need to follow during recovery?

  • During recovery from adult circumcision, it’s essential to follow the instructions given by your surgeon to ensure proper healing and minimize the risk of complications. Key instructions typically include dressing management, hygiene, activity limitations, monitoring, rest and recovery.

What are the expected levels of discomfort or pain post-circumcision?

  • After undergoing circumcision, it’s normal to experience mild to moderate discomfort or pain, especially in the first few days following the procedure. The intensity of pain can vary from person to person but is generally manageable with pain relief medications.


How safe is adult circumcision, and what are the risks involved?

  • Adult circumcision is a safe procedure when performed by qualified and experienced healthcare professionals. Our doctors adhere to stringent safety protocols to minimize risks, which are rare but can include infection or bleeding.

What measures are taken to ensure the safety and comfort of the patient during the procedure?

  • To ensure the safety and comfort of the patient during an adult circumcision procedure, several key measures will be followed. First, the procedure is performed in a sterile environment by an experienced, board-certified surgeon to minmize the risk of infection. Local or general anesthesia is administered based on the patient’s health and preference to ensure a pain-free experience. Throughout the procedure, patient vital signs are closely monitored, and the surgical technique is tailored to minimize discomfort and promote quick healing.

How can I assess the qualifications and experience of my circumcision surgeon?

  • To ensure you are choosing a highly qualified and experienced circumcision surgeon, there are several key factors to consider. First, verify the surgeon’s medical credentials, including their board certification. Board-certified surgeons have met rigorous standards in their specialty, ensuring they possess the knowledge and skills necessary for safe and effective care.

Benefits and Considerations

What are the benefits of getting circumcised as an adult?

  • Choosing to undergo circumcision as an adult can provide several significant benefits. Health-wise, adult circumcision has been associated with a reduced risk of urinary tract infections (UTIs), sexually transmitted infections (STIs) including HIV, and penile cancer. The removal of the foreskin can lead to better hygiene, as it eliminates a space where bacteria or viruses could proliferate, making it easier to keep the area clean. Furthermore, circumcision can offer relief from conditions such as phimosis and balanitis. It’s important to note that while circumcision offers these benefits, the decision to undergo the procedure is personal and should be made after careful consideration and consultation with a healthcare provider.

Can circumcision improve personal hygiene and sexual health?

  • Circumcision often leads to improved personal hygiene by simplifying the cleaning process of the genital area, reducing the buildup of bacteria under the foreskin that can cause infections. In terms of sexual health, studies have shown that circumcision can reduce the risk of sexually transmitted infections (STIs), including human immunodeficiency virus (HIV). The impact on sexual experience varies among individuals, with some reporting improvements and others noting no significant change. It’s important to discuss these aspects with a healthcare provider to understand how circumcision might specifically benefit you.

Can adult circumcision affect sexual function?

  • The impact of adult circumcision on sexual function is a topic of interest and concern for many. Research in this area suggests that the effects vary among individuals, but the majority of studies report minimal negative impact on sexual function. In fact, some men experience improvements in their sexual satisfaction and function post-circumcision.

Can I get circumcised at any age?

  • While circumcision is technically possible at any stage of life, the Center for Circumcision specializes in procedures for adults aged 18 and above.
