Circumcision is excising an amount of the foreskin around the penis.
This procedure is performed on babies, children and adults, each for different reasons (Religion, complications or, indeed hygiene).
After the skin and mucosa is removed (wrongly named mucous membrane) we stitch around the skin and mucosa with self dissolving sutures.
The procedure is performed as day surgery and the patient is advised to avoid sexual excitement otherwise he may bleed.
Sedatives are sometimes given for 3-4 days after the operation, depending on age, to prevent erection
