Under local anaesthesia, the foreskin will be cut with surgical scissors and stitched to the remaining skin using absorbable sutures.

Is Adult Circumcision Painful?

The procedure is done under local anaesthesia.

The only pain you will feel is from the injection of the local anaesthesia. After which, you will not feel any pain during the procedure.

After the procedure there will be minimal pain and painkillers will be prescribed to you.

You may experience some discomfort for the first few days after procedure from nocturnal erections.

Can I pee normally?

For the first few days, some may notice some blood in the urine, spraying of urine or some discomfort during urination.

It will go away once the bandage has been removed and the wound has healed. After which you will be able to pee normally.

Like any surgical procedures, circumcision also comes with its own risks.

Potential risks include bleeding, pain, injury to the penis, wound dehiscence and hematoma formation. However, these risks are low and are manageable.
