Circumcision Q&A

What is circumcision?

Circumcision is the surgical removal of the foreskin covering the head of the penis. In most cases, male babies undergo circumcision when they’re born. Some parents choose not to circumcise their children due to religious beliefs or other personal reasons. 

So, if you’re an adult who was never circumcised as an infant, you might want to have the procedure now. 

In an adult circumcision procedure, your Modern Urology surgeon creates precise incisions in the foreskin. They then unwrap and detach it before placing tiny absorbable sutures to close the skin. 

What are the reasons for adult circumcision?

Men may choose adult circumcision for many different reasons, including: 

  • Unhappiness with the appearance of the penis
  • Difficulty keeping the penis clean
  • Phimosis: Foreskin that is too tight
  • Paraphimosis: Foreskin that stays in a retracted position
  • Balanitis: Swelling and irritation of the penis head
  • Genital warts on the foreskin
  • Cancer of the penis

Even if you don’t have one of these issues, circumcision offers benefits that could influence your decision to have the procedure.

What are the benefits of adult circumcision?

Circumcised men can experience some impressive benefits. A circumcised penis may be easier to clean, and some people prefer the appearance of a circumcised penis. In addition, circumcision can lower your risk of: 

  • Penile cancer
  • Female partners developing cervical cancer
  • Human immunodeficiency virus (HIV)
  • Herpes
  • Human papillomavirus (HPV) 
  • Urinary tract infections (UTIs)
  • Syphilis

Circumcision is a very personal choice, and each man’s benefits may be different based on lifestyle, health, beliefs, and individual needs. 

Will adult circumcision affect my sexual function or sensation?

Circumcision doesn't affect your sexual function or sensation. Once you’re healed, your sexual experiences will be just as they were before the procedure although you might experience a big confidence boost, which could lead to more pleasurable encounters overall. 

How long does it take to heal after an adult circumcision?

After an adult circumcision, you heal gradually over the coming weeks. You generally have a bandage over your penis in early recovery, for at least the first few days, to keep it clean and prevent germs from reaching the healing tissue. 

Your Modern Urology provider gives you specific instructions about recovery, including guidelines for when to return to sexual intercourse or masturbation.
