Circumcision vs. Uncircumcised: Which is Better?

Being circumcised or uncircumcised is a personal choice. For some men, remaining uncircumcised is preferable. However, many men choose to undergo adult circumcision because of the advantages of being circumcised, which include:

Types of Circumcisions for Adults

There are different ways to circumcise an adult male. Each of these different circumcisions produces a different result. Types of circumcision vary with regard to their position and tightness. Methods of circumcision include:

If a man opts for a tight circumcision, it is important that the circumcision it not too tight. However, there is nothing wrong with being circumcised tight as long as it is comfortable. Alternatively, some men prefer to be loosely circumcised.

Regardless of the man’s preferences, it is important to note that each person’s individual anatomy will affect the outcome of the procedure. When determining how much to circumcise a man, doctors must take this anatomy into account. Prior to the procedure, the doctor will discuss this issue with the patient so that he has realistic expectations and can make the best choice.
