Circumcision: Removing excess foreskin in an adult is like repeating the circumcision procedure again. If this skin is not causing problems why do it. You will incur the cost of a surgery center, cost of the physician doing it and possibly anesthesiologist. It will cost several thousand dollars, which insurance can cover part of it depending on your deductible.
