Hello doctors, what does a 4 year old circumcision entail?

Dr. Lane Childs
33 years experience in Urology
Outpatient : This is a brief outpatient procedure under anesthesia. Four-year-olds heal quickly. A small bandage may be placed and the stitches are small and dissolve in 2 weeks, but the boy will be up and about within a day. Healing will be mostly complete in a couple of weeks.
