Adult Circumcision: What to Expect at Home

Circumcision is the surgical removal of the foreskin. The procedure takes about thirty minutes and is performed under general anesthesia. The entire foreskin is removed using an incision just behind the head of the penis. This leaves the head of the penis completely exposed. Local anesthesia will be used to relieve discomfort after the operation. Circumcision is usually performed on newborns for medical, social, or cultural purposes.

You may have a condition that requires circumcision. Or, you may want to be circumcised for personal reasons. Either way, you will want to know what to expect. Tell your doctor about all medicines you take and any allergies you have. Cream to numb the skin of the penis may be applied 30 to 60 minutes before the procedure.
