Circumcision: 12 days is a little long for a circumferential dressing. I think it's safe to say its not going to "fall off" at this point. I would recommend you carefully unwrap the bandage and start applying neosporin ointment several times daily. I assume you have absorbable sutures which don't require removal

12 days post op: Ask your doctor. No dressing after that long, not a pressure dressing either.
