Adult Circumcision Q & A

What is adult circumcision?

Many men who werenʼt circumcised as children decide they would like to undergo circumcision in their adulthood for many reasons.

Thereʼs 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 whoʼs 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, the medical team at Gentle Circumcision can help.

Is adult circumcision safe?

Thereʼs no denying that circumcision is a far more straightforward procedure in an infant. However, adult circumcision is still a very safe and uncomplicated procedure, as long as you seek out experienced professionals who specialize in performing the procedure in adults. Dr. Malholtra, a graduate of the Columbia School of Medicine and the Stanford University Urology program, meets all the criteria as an expert in this area.

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:

A High and tight circumcision

With high and tight circumcision, Dr. Malholtra removes more of the foreskin. This produces a scar line thatʼs 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. Malhotra removes less of the foreskin. The result is looser skin during an erection.

High and loose circumcision

Similar to a low and loose circumcision, thereʼs 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 mustnʼt be too tight, or it could make erections uncomfortable.

What about Pain Management?

Gentle Circumcisionʼs goal is to achieve a virtually painless procedure and recovery for you.

Adults should take a pre-circumcision loading dose of extra- strength acetaminophen at bedtime before, and again, the morning of their procedure. The doctor first administers buffered lidocaine as a local anesthetic. Alternating between acetaminophen and ibuprofen is usually sufficient to address any discomfort. Or as a matter of choice, you may request the doctor to prescribe a narcotic analgesic.
