Circumcision is the removal of the foreskin from the human penis. The foreskin is opened, adhesions are removed, and the foreskin is removed from the glans. Local anesthesia is used to reduce the pain during the procedure. In some cases, it may be done for the treatment of certain medical conditions or preventive measures. Medically it is a treatment option for phimosis and balanoposthitis.
Circumcision is a relatively simple procedure. The foreskin is removed just back to the head of the penis using surgical scissors. bleeding can be stopped using heat cauterization, and the remaining sides of the skin will be stitched together using dissolvable stitches.
Local anesthetic is used to numb the area
The procedure generally takes about 10 minutes
It's best to avoid full-body bathing until the second day after surgery
