When patients walk into our Circumcision Center, there are several reasons why we recommend the procedure to men. As you go through this post, we would like to address some frequently asked questions and what makes our surgery a preferred choice among men in Atlanta. Rest assured that we perform the circumcision procedure under local or general anesthesia, depending on the patient’s choice.
For adult circumcision surgery, we use the sleeve resection technique. In some of the patients who battle with phimosis, we use the dorsal slit technique. However, we prefer the sleeve resection method because it offers better control in the case of heavy or over bleeding. This is especially common in those patients who have large subcutaneous veins. This is something that also depends on how well a patient cares for the incisions.
Here are some of the common questions we hear our patients ask us at Circumcision Center.
Before the surgery, our advice is that you should have a consultation visit. The consultation and the time we take is about thirty minutes. The procedure and the consultation could be in the same office, and often is on the same day.
At our clinic, the common reasons why men opt for the surgery include some medical reasons like posthitis, paraphimosis, balanitis. There are other non-surgical reasons such as cosmetic / aesthetic reasons, religious reasons, social and cultural reasons.
Although lasers are a good choice for some other surgical procedures, for adult circumcision, a laser has no benefit as such and potential issues or problems. The job of the laser is simply to cut and nothing else. With the laser, the surgeon will not be able to control the cut depth. In adult circumcision, it is important that a surgeon should be able to control the cut depth to a good degree. With a laser, too much depth of cut or injury to the urethra could result. At our clinic, we use a scalpel for the procedure.
Although the recovery period all depends on how well you care for the incision, we recommend a week of complete rest. In addition, this week should include less activity and less travel.
Not at all. Keep in mind that the penis structure in anatomy has a length and deep girth than the skin. In the circumcision surgery, it’s only the skin that we alter, hence there is no chance to alter the penile size with the adult circumcision.
