Risks in circumcision surgery

Although the circumcision procedure is considered to be relatively safe there are some risks involved in circumcision surgery if the circumcision surgery is not done properly.

Therefore, it is very important to get the surgery done by an experienced surgeon who does circumcision surgeries on a regular basis and is able to explain you the pre-operative and post-operative care procedures.  Do not get this surgery done by a non-medical professional or by an inexperienced surgeon.

Before you have this surgery done you should be aware of the risks and problems so that you can be careful to watch out for any signs indicating you have problems.

Some minor problems can occur which will usually clear up in a few days. This includes possible slight bleeding or a little oozing around the penis.

Some infection can be experienced around the wound area, or some irritation at the tip of the penis due to contamination from urine or stool if proper precautions are not taken.

Other complications if the circumcision operation is not done properly, include:

The opening of the urethra may sustain damage.
Scarring of the penis. This can occur from poor surgical techniques or infections.
Some other risks in circumcision surgery include a skin bridge forming when the foreskin is not completely removed. This can cause painful erections.
The scar tissue can grow over the opening of the urethra and impede urination.
Excess bleeding, which may require stitches.
Acute infection, which can be a threat to your life. This is quite rare but should be considered.
If too little skin is removed from the penis the foreskin cannot retract properly.

If you observe good post operative care of the area when you have had the surgery done you will reduce the risks in circumcision surgery.

Always keep the area clean and dry and be sure that you cover the penis when you shower so that it remains dry until it heals. This will cut down the risk of infection.

Some things you should check for are; any discharge from the tip of the penis. Any sores that are oozing and any bleeding that may occur.

If you notice any discoloration around the area you should inform your doctor.  Any severe pain that lasts longer than a day should also be reported to your doctor.

Therefore the best way to reduce the risks of circumcision is to have it done by a skilled and experienced surgeon who has successfully performed several circumcisions.

Usually there are few problems if any when you have this procedure done by a skilled and experienced surgeon.  Although there are some risks in circumcision surgery there are usually not any problems.

If you have the operation done when you are an adult it is still considered minor surgery.

You can return to work and get back to your normal lifestyle in short time. You should not have intercourse for around 4-6 weeks after the procedure.
