No, but...: Most circumcisions are done for poor hygiene and recurrent local irritation and infection so the patients like and appreciate it. But, its related complication does happen to very few, such as too much foreskin removal, slow-healing from post-circumcision bleeding, etc. Occasionally, personal unusual mental hang-up can be difficult to solve, but a decent professional counseling will help.
