Adult Circumcision Q & A

What is adult circumcision?

Many men who weren’t circumcised as children decide they would like to undergo circumcision in their adulthood for a number of reasons.

There’s some evidence that adult circumcision could protect your female partners from infection with human papillomavirus (HPV), which causes cervical cancer and other STDs. Some potential partners might like to have a partner who’s circumcised. 

You might simply prefer the way a circumcised penis looks or want to make it easier to keep your penis clean and prevent infection. Whatever your reasons for wanting an adult circumcision, Dr. Pittman and the team at Gentle Circumcision can help.

Is adult circumcision safe?

There’s no denying that circumcision is a far more straightforward procedure in an infant. However, adult circumcision is still a very safe operation, as long as you go to someone who specializes in performing the procedure in adults, like Dr. Pittman.

Newborn and infant circumcision is something many doctors have experience in, but the procedure is more complex in teens and adult men. Therefore, even if your primary care provider has experience with circumcising babies, for adults, it’s best to seek expert treatment at Gentle Circumcision.

How is adult circumcision performed?

There are several ways to perform adult circumcision, and each method produces a different outcome. Methods of adult circumcision include:

High and tight circumcision

With high and tight circumcision, Dr. Pittman removes more of the foreskin. This produces a scar line that’s closer to the middle of the shaft. The skin is tighter during an erection after having a high and tight circumcision. 

Low and tight circumcision

With low and tight circumcision, the scar line is closer to the glans, but the skin is still tighter during an erection. 

Low and loose circumcision

With low and loose circumcision, the scar line is closer to the glans, but Dr. Pittman removes less of the foreskin. The result is looser skin during an erection. 

High and loose circumcision

Similar to a low and loose circumcision, there’s less foreskin removed. However, the circumcision scar is closer to the middle of the shaft and further from the glans. 

If you opt for a tight circumcision, it mustn’t be too tight, or it could make erections uncomfortable.
