Circumcision Before and After

Circumcision is the surgical removal of foreskin from one’s penis. This problem majorly occurs in adults of any age. Circumcision is the most common surgery among males. More and more people are opting for circumcision as it is safe and  decreases the risk of any infection that may lead to penile cancer or any other disease. Circumcision is one of the world’s most widely performed medical procedures. Approximately 37% to 39% of males worldwide are circumcised. Circumcision Before and After precautions should be taken.

There are various surgical options available for circumcision such as 

1. Laser CircumcisionA laser device is used to cut the skin. The advantages are early recovery and minimal blood loss. The dressing required is minimum. Number of follow-up required is minimum. This is by far the most modern method of treatment available for circumcision.

2. Anstomat or Stapler Circumcision An anstomat or stapler device is used to perform the surgery. Most commonly second generation ZSR device is used for the procedure. An anstomat or stapler circumcision device is applied over the penis to remove the foreskin. After the procedure you are left with a ring of small metal clips which fall of automatically within few days. While the rings are there they may cause some irritation or pain which is easily covered by painkiller and anti-inflammatory medication.

3. Silicon ringA third generation device which uses a silicone ring is also available, here instead of metal clips, silicone rings are utilised for holding the cut layers of the skin together. After few days, the silicone ring falls off automatically.

4. Conventional surgery- In conventional surgery a surgical knife or blade is used as the cutting tool to perform the procedure. The chances of bleeding are relatively higher and the cosmesis is relatively inferior to other methods of surgery. However  before opting for surgery one should also  know about the  before and after surgery affects.
