CIRCUMCISION SURGERY

Comments ( 0 )

Circumcision can be done for a variety of reasons. They can be medical, cosmetic,  ethnic or religious.

What is circumcision surgery?

Prior to having a circumcision surgery done it is good to understand exactly what the operation is and how it will benefit you. When you do this you will be able to have your operation with confidence, knowing that you will know what to expect.

So what is the procedure when you come for a circumcision?

Circumcision is a minor operation that takes around an hour to complete.  It is done to remove the foreskin of the penis. You will be able to go home the same day.

The circumcision operation itself is quite simple and when done by an experienced doctor in clean sterile conditions is usually not painful.

The days when the village elders performed this as a ceremonial rite are long since gone and the procedure takes place in a sterile clean environment with a professional doctor doing the operation.  This will decrease the risks of infection and complications and ensure that you are more comfortable.

There are concerns from people going to get the circumcision done that there may be some scarring or infections after the operation.  However there is usually nothing to worry about if you have this done by an experienced doctor in a proper hospital environment.

It is good to understand the post operative procedures, because this will help you to heal and reduce the risk of complications and infections.

You will be allowed home after the procedure but you should try to take bed rest for about a day. If you do this you will then be able to reduce the chances of excessive bleeding and allow your body to heal.

You can take a shower but be sure to keep the wound area dry.  This can be done by covering the penis with something like saran wrap to protect it. You will reduce the chances of infection when you do this. If the wound gets wet remember to just pat it dry and not to rub it or it can get inflamed.

It is good to check on the wound site and be sure that there is no bluish color or discolorations around it. If you see anything like this you should inform your doctor.

It is wise not to have sexual intercourse until about 3 to 4 weeks after the circumcision surgery. You should not have any problems after your operation as long as you keep the area clean and dry.

The dressing should be changed regularly and the wound will heal in about 7 days.

When you understand about the procedure you will not be apprehensive about having it done.
