Circumcision is surgery to remove the skin that covers the head of the penis. This is called the foreskin. Your doctor "pushed" the foreskin from the head of the penis and trimmed it off. He or she sewed down the edges using small stitches that will dissolve. Your doctor may have used any one of a number of techniques to do this. Most men go home the same day as the surgery.
Circumcision is the surgical removal of foreskin. Foreskin covers the head of a flaccid penis. When the penis is erect, the foreskin pulls back to reveal the penis. During a circumcision , a doctor cuts away a portion of the foreskin and reattaches the section that remains to create a shorter section of skin. Circumcision in infancy is performed for several reasons , including religious, social, medical, and cultural purposes. For example, in Jewish and Islamic communities, this procedure is common as part of religious standards. Newborn circumcision is more common than circumcision as an adolescent or adult.
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.
It is one of the oldest and most common surgical procedures. A male may undergo this procedure for religious, social, medical, or cultural reasons. However, not all health authorities agree, and the recommendations remain somewhat controversial.
