What Can I Do To Repair My Circumcision
Here are some...: The timing to take shower depends on how long the surgery is done and what the surgeon prefers. The "best" answer is following the surgeon's postoperative advice; so, call to confirm. But generally speaking, start taking shower after all dressing & the catheter are removed-roughly in 1 week; before then, taking sponge bath is the right thing to do, which, though inconvenient, patient has to cope. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Controversial: Religous and personal reasons aside, do the medical benefits outweigh the risks? All reading of the data seem to support the benefits.But is that enough? Should we be doing procedures to minimize very rare conditions such as penile cancer? We need, i think, more substantial research data. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Circumcision: Circumcision would only be done on an urgent basis if paraphimosis was present. This happens when the foreskin gets trapped in the rolled back position and swells to the point of compromising the glans penis circulation.

More than 2: PlastiBell device is safest & best method in my opinion, glans is protected by a plastic ring & bleeding controlled by a string compressing cut skin & prevents bleeding. Other methods are Gomco or Mogen clamps. Both quite different & preferred by many OB Drs. However risk of post circumcision bleeding greater. Gomco looks like a mini-torture device, Mogen looks like film director's clamp. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
No: I recently had cause to check the actual numbers, as best they can be determined. According to what i found, about 1/3 of the men in the world are circumcised, and about 2/3 are not. Since only a tiny fraction of the world's people are found in the United States, and less than half of these are male, clearly circumcision happens elsewhere. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
Really none: There are no true benefits of circumcision. Old beliefs that circumcision may confer better care of the penis have not been substantiated, as most males do well being uncircumcised.
