When is circumcision recommended?

Circumcision has been performed for thousands of years in many communities all over the world. Medically, it is also a recommended form of treatment for conditions like phimosis (tight foreskin), recurrent balanitis (penile infection) and premature ejaculation. – Singapore Circumcision Clinic

WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF MALE ADULT CIRCUMCISION?

BENEFITS OF CIRCUMCISION

The Benefits of Circumcision include:

Prevention of balanitis

Better hygiene

Reduced risk of HIV and other STDs

Fewer risk of urinary tract infection

Prevention of phimosis (inability to retract foreskin) and paraphimosis (foreskin retracted and unable to return to original position)

How is Adult circumcision performed?

There are several methods normally performed for adults.

Here at our clinics, we utilize two methods: Shang Ring method and the Stapler Method

Shang Ring Method

Under local anaesthesia, the Shang Ring will be inserted in the foreskin. The outer clamp is then applied externally. The foreskin above the ring is then removed using surgical scissors.

The ring will be left in place for 10-14  days. The patient will then come back to the clinic for removal of the ring. The Shang Ring method is considered one of the safest methods of circumcision by many medical professionals worldwide.

Stapler method

After applying numbing cream for 30 mins, the foreskin is numb and will be ready to start.  The Stapler device is made up of two components. The outer and the inner bell. The inner bell is designed to protect the glans. The outer bell comprises a circular blade to cut the foreskin and staples to close the wound for simultaneous hemostasis. First, the inner bell is placed inside the foreskin to cover the glans; The outer bell is placed over the inner bell. Once secured tightly, the handles are triggered to cut the foreskin and the wound is closed by staples at the same time. The device is then  unscrewed and removed.  A bandage will be applied for 3-4 days.

The staples will drop out on its own by the second week. The patient will then come back for a follow up review.

Is Adult Circumcision Painful?

The procedure is painless. It is done under local anaesthesia using numbing cream only.

No injections are required. The numbing cream will take 30 mins to 1 hour to take effect.

After which you will not feel any pain during the procedure.

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

What are the Advantages of the Shang Ring and Stapler Method?

It is a revolutionary circumcision device that shortens the procedure duration down to 5 minutes only instead of the usual 45 minutes or 1 hour via conventional circumcision methods.

  • No sutures necessary
  • No injections
  • Short procedure time (around 5 minutes)
  • Minimal bleeding
  • Frenulum preserved
  • Very low risk of complications
  • Excellent cosmesis
  • High satisfaction rate among patients

Can I pee normally?

Yes, you can. The procedure does not affect your ability to pass urine. In fact, for some patients with severe phimosis, you may be able to pass urine more easily after the procedure. You can also shower normally.

Is Circumcision Dangerous?

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. -Singapore Circumcision Clinic

Can I still perform normal activities?

Right after the circumcision procedure, you are able to walk normally. There’s no need for hospitalization. You are however advised only to start exercise 4-6 weeks after the procedure.

Sexual intercourse and masturbation can only resume 4-6 weeks after the procedure. – Singapore Circumcision Clinic
