What is a Circumcision?
Circumcision is a surgical procedure that can take between 30 minutes and an hour.
Depending on the patients preferences, it may be performed under general anesthesia or localized anesthesia.
During the procedure, the Surgeon will use a scalpel or a scissors to cut the foreskin and then the skin edges will be stitched back to the shaft with sutures. The penis is wrapped in a protective dressing for 24 hours The stitches will be dissolved in few days.
In the immediate hours and days after the surgery, you’ll likely experience swelling and bruising on and around the penis. This is to be expected.
Recovery from circumcision typically takes two to three weeks.
You may be able to return to normal physical activity, including exercise, four weeks after the procedure. Sexual intercourse and masturbation may need a bit longer — up to six weeks.
