Corrective surgery: A circumcision revision is a procedure done after a circumcision (removal of foreskin) to correct a problem with the original procedure. This can include a cosmetic issue with the appearance or leaving too much of the foreskin behind after circumcision. It is important to consider whether or not the appearance is truly that bad as another surgery may not always improve the results.

Parents often think that circumcisions require Revision, when in fact none is required. Babies & young children often develop a prominent fat pad (chubbiness) over pubic bone, this combined with looseness of penile skin can sometimes give penis an uncircumcised or incompletely circumcised appearance. Most such boys do NOT require revision, they will grow into it & look normally circ'd by puberty

Talk to your: Urologist. My best bet is once the redness or raw area is gone, then it's safe to go back to the pool - roughly 7-10 days.
