Why would someone need a circumcision revision? What happens during that?

Why would someone need a circumcision revision? What happens during that?

Seldom required: In kids. Should be done if there is secondary phimosis or area of shaft skin is fused to glans, this is penile skin bridging rather than the very common penile adhesions. Needs not be done just for excess skin left behind in child's circumcision because he will grow into it & will look normal by puberty. Very common request in my practice & seldom necessary, i.e. Unnecessary cosmetic procedure. ...Read more

How safe is baby boy circumcision?

How safe is baby boy circumcision?

Mostly very safe: Provided the surgeon, pediatrician, obstetrician or mohel is well trained and careful. I believe plastibell method, where the redundant foreskin is tied off over a small plastic ring is the safest because risk of bleeding is very slight. Correct size plastibell ring must be selected and a frenular bleed should be cauterized. (check google. Com). Clamp method usually safe, but risk of bleed more. ...Read more

I got a circumcision a month ago on June 21 and now that it's been a month I'm having allot of trouble getting erections during sex please help

Adult circumcision: Your sensitivity level has changed and you likely have become self-conscious which interferes w/spontaneous responses such as erections. If your doc says your health is fine, consider seeing a licensed sex therapist for a few educational sessions. W/out foreskin the head of your penis may feel less sensitive because the tissue thickens but will function just fine. Peace and good health. ...Read more
