Unfortunately, : Unfortunately, circumcision will not increase the size of your penis. Furthermore, by removing the foreskin, your penis may actually appear shorter than it was before. Depending on your weight and how much foreskin is actually removed it may look quite a bit shorter (see buried penis). If you are unable to pull back your foreskin, sometimes a topical steroid cream can help you to pull it back. It is generally a good idea to clean underneath your foreskin regularly. The procedure can be done under local anesthesia. Pain generally lasts for a few days after the procedure. Sutures take 2-3 weeks to dissolve and you can resume sexual activity about 3-4 weeks following the procedure.
