As of 2013 the fee for first-time circumcisions and revisions is $2500. If the foreskin is non-retractable, the fee is $3000. We do not accept insurance for these services.
Circumcision procedures are performed on Mondays.
If you are not comfortable with having the procedure performed using local anesthesia given by injection in the penis, please contact us to speak with someone about the costs and requirements for having the procedure performed under general anesthesia.
All patients 50 years of age and older must obtain a statement from a primary care physician stating that he is an appropriate candidate for a minor procedure under local anesthesia.
At the time of scheduling, a 50% deposit will be required. This payment is accepted via major credit card and is non-refundable. Your balance will be respectfully requested on the day of your procedure and can be paid via cash or credit card. No personal checks please.
To make an appointment, please call (678) 904-0833
We will work with you to schedule a convenient time for your consultation and procedure, which both can be on the same day if you so wish.

You will not be given general anesthesia (you will not be put to sleep), Therefore it is recommended that eat before arriving. Closely trim all of the pubic hair from the base of the penis.
It is recommended that you have supportive underwear, such as briefs or boxer briefs to wear after the circumcision. Feel free to bring reading material or a personal stereo with headphones.
Wear supportive underwear and elevate the penis on your abdomen to minimize swelling. It is also recommended that you limit fluid intake to that amount which satisfies your thirst. Excess fluids may lead to more swelling. Also, limit salt intake.
Post Operative Instructions
The dressing with which you leave the procedure holds the healing wound in place. Without it, the wound will become disrupted. You will be told how long to leave the dressing in place after the procedure. The dressing must be left in place for the full amount of time specified. Cover the dressing with waterproof material for showering. The dressing may cause the urine stream to spray. Use a hair dryer to dry the dressing if it becomes wet.
To remove the dressing, first sit in the tub to saturate it with water and then unwrap it. You should not expect the sutures to be ready to come out at this point, though in some cases they may be. The sutures will break down and dissolve under the skin line such that it will not be obvious that they are dissolved. You should gently pull on the knots of the sutures with tweezers, and when they have dissolved, the sutures will pull out easily and painlessly. If it hurts when pulling on them, then stop and wait a few more days before trying again. Soaking in the bathtub and keeping the suture line lubricated with Neosporin and/or Vitamin E ointment will help the material dissolve more quickly. Some sutures will not be ready to come out until three or four weeks after the surgery.
Do not expect the wound to have a good cosmetic appearance when the dressing is removed. Be patient and it will improve dramatically. The wound will improve dramatically over 4-12 weeks. Come in for an examination, text, or email photos if you have questions about healing.
Sexual activity may be resumed after one month.
