Finding Someone to Perform Your Circumcision
"I got a very good looking, very low and tight cut. (Shaft skin right up behind the glands. The skin is smooth when flaccid and very tight when erect.) He used a double set of sutures to hold everything together. He'll do whatever style you suggest." Click here to read more...
Circumcision is the surgical removal of the foreskin and is the most commonly performed operation in the world. Some religions require this, and many parents prefer that their boys be circumcised for sanitary reasons.
The American Academy of Pediatrics has stated there is no absolute indication for routine circumcision. However, a study involving 2,500 babies determined that the uncircumcised male is 20 times more likely to develop a urinary tract infection than the circumcised infant. The Academy has modified their statement to say there are potential benefits and risks.
Adult circumcision should be performed with delicate sutures that results in level of healing comparable to a newborn circumcision. Individuals with urethral (urinary channel) defects should postpone circumcision as the foreskin may be used in repair of a congenital defect.
