Most people who reach out to our clinic have already decided to get circumcised or to circumcise their son. So, many of them ask, how much should spend on an adult circumcision operation? Well, the cost depends on the individual case, and there are several primary affecting factors.
Here’s what you should know to approximate the right price for you.
Average Cost of Adult Circumcision
A traditional circumcision operation for adults at The Center for Circumcision costs $2,000 and $2,400 if you’d like to use nitrous oxide (a.k.a., laughing gas) to minimize anxiety and fear. We also offer corrective circumcision for $800 to $3,000.
In general, we’ll bill your procedure in two parts: one for the operation and the other for the doctor’s fee. And remember, your insurance may reduce the price for you.
While ours is still a significant price for many people, we’re one of the most affordable places for circumcision, considering the market average of $3,000 to $4,000. Plus, with so many benefits the procedure offers, it can be worth the price.
For example, studies have found circumcision to:
- Reduce the risk of urinary tract infections
- Lower the chances of transmitting or contracting sexually transmitted diseases
- Help in protecting against penile cancer
- Improve one’s sexual satisfaction
- Help in correcting foreskin issues
With that in mind, let’s see what’s often included in circumcision pricing to know what cost to expect.
What’s Included in the Cost
When you decide to move forward with a medical procedure, it’s vital to be aware of the cost associated. After all, nobody likes spending money on something they don’t understand—and, let’s face it, most of us have no idea what goes into pricing a medical procedure.
The best way to get an idea of everything that goes into your procedure’s price is with a cost breakdown. Alternatively, if you want to keep things simple, opt to find a clinic that provides an all-inclusive fee.
An all-inclusive package typically includes consultation, anesthesia, and facility fees, so you don’t have to pay for them individually. As a result, you only see one bill at the end of the procedure, there won’t be any hidden or surprise costs, and you can make informed decisions beforehand.

Duration of the Procedure
Many people are anxious about undergoing medical procedures, but the good news is that circumcision procedures only take less than an hour. Plus, the recovery time and aftercare are minimal—especially if you take good care of your body.
Moreover, those who understand precisely how the procedure works and what to expect before going in, feel much more comfortable throughout the process. So if you’re considering circumcision, inform yourself as much as you can about preparing for, experiencing, and healing from the operation.

Recovering from an injury or surgery often involves careful monitoring, appropriate rest, and the right rehabilitation program. Fortunately, recovery times are generally short, and individuals can typically resume normal activities within a week or less.
Work closely with your doctor to follow the steps for your unique recovery plan. Our team will brief you on the healing process and recovery steps before you leave the clinic and provide a hotline number in case you have any concerns.
Having a minor surgical procedure can be relatively worry-free, but there are still risks associated that patients should understand. Unfortunately, there are no surgeries that are risk-free.
Complications to the procedure, though uncommon, can include infection, bleeding, and pain. Discuss these with your doctor before undergoing the operation, especially if you have pre-existing conditions that may hinder the process and cost you to reverse.
Take charge of your surgery’s success by finding a good doctor and team to work with you.
Depending on your insurance policy, part or all of your circumcision could be covered.
Some health insurance plans provide coverage for more than just the surgical fee and include preoperative lab tests and follow-up visits. Read through your policy and contact customer service representatives if you have questions or need help understanding what‘s covered by your policy.

Circumcision Benefits Outweigh the Cost
The price of adult circumcision is based on factors like your age, the clinic’s fees, operation complications, the type of procedure you choose, how long the operation takes, and how well your healing process goes. Though no surgery is cheap, the price of circumcision is worth it to you, considering its benefits.
