What is Circumcision?

During a circumcision, the foreskin that covers the tip of the penis is removed. This procedure is performed for a variety of reasons, including medical, religious and cultural preferences. Typically, circumcision is performed on newborn babies, but sometimes can be performed on mature males.

Also Known As:

  • Penile surgery

Conditions Treated with Circumcision:

Circumcision can be performed in order to meet preferences for appearance, religion, or culture. Medical conditions that can be treated with circumcision include foreskin inflammation or a tight foreskin.

Non-Surgical or Other Surgical Alternatives to Circumcision:

There are no comparable non-surgical or surgical alternatives to circumcision.

Anesthesia with Circumcision:

When circumcision is performed on newborns, local anesthesia is used. For older males, either local or general anesthesia can be used during the procedure.

Potential Complications from Circumcision:

Possible risks of circumcision include pain, infection, bleeding and scarring. It is also possible for the penis to be injured during the procedure.

Prognosis after Circumcision:

The prognosis for a positive end result following circumcision is good. However, some critics of the procedure challenge whether or not the benefits of circumcision outweigh the potential complications.

Recovery from Circumcision:

It takes about seven to 10 days to recover from a circumcision.
