Preparation and procedure of Circumcision
Circumcision is simply the surgical removal of the outer foreskin in the male reproductive organ. In the usual procedure, the entire foreskin is removed, adhesions get removed, and the inner foreskin is gently separated from the head. Then a simple and non-intrusive technique called “sanding” is done, and the intact foreskin gets cleaned. Afterwards, a small glistening device called a retractor is placed, and the exposed skin is pulled away from the head.
Crepuscular disease (phimosis of the prepuce) can cause problems in men. This condition can be life threatening, so it is important to treat this condition as soon as possible, before it causes serious damage. Phimosis does not usually cause pain during masturbation, but in some cases, it can lead to pain during sexual intercourse. If you think that you might have this condition, consult your doctor and he will guide you through the process of obtaining a good and reliable phimosis treatment.
Two options are available to a man for phimosis treatment. The first is “circumcisional excision”, while the second is “banding”. The doctor will remove the skin from the shaft of your penis. This is where the head meets the shaft. The entire foreskin and pubic hair are removed. With this method, there are less chances of recurrence of problems with the urinary tract infections.
The second is “banding”, which doctors often recommend as the preferred option. The patient is placed in a restrain ring and a band is tied around the head and shaft of the penis. This method requires fewer risks, as the skin is not removed entirely, leaving a small opening for the head to heal. With this method of genital surgery, less skin is removed and therefore fewer chances of infection occur. However, both techniques are performed at one Hatfield hospital.
Before and after the circumcision treatment, a new retractor is required to be fitted for each penis. This device serves as a slip, which keeps the penis tightly in place and prevents any leakage. The reactor is then secured with a plastic ring. This ring is later removed after the treatment, to allow the penis to heal. This is an effective genital hygiene treatment that can reduce the risk of recurrences of urinary tract infections in men with phimosis.
Even though the method of genital hygiene is highly recommended for men with phimosis, only a few doctors practice it. For example, Dr. Samir Melki, who is a consultant at the Abraham Michael Roth Israel Medical Center in Jerusalem, does not recommend this procedure for men with phimosis. He stated that circumcision can prevent phimosis recurrences and other skin diseases. He also added that there are some risks during and after the circumcision procedure, such as skin abrasion, bleeding, or even injury to the glans.
There are also three other procedures that can be done to treat a man with phimosis. One involves creating a “cavity” in the head of the penis, to make it easier to surgically remove the prepuce or foreskin. Another technique is called “dorsal-slits”. The doctor will create a small opening at the center of the scrotum and slits on each side. With this procedure, a new skin will grow along the newly created slit. A third procedure called “foreskin grafting” creates a graft from the patient’s own skin, which is used to cover the scrotum and the dorsal slit.
All these procedures are designed to re-introduce penis into the recipient’s body. It is important to note that the preparation for the surgical procedure should begin several weeks before the actual circumcision procedure. After the surgery, the doctor will instruct his patient how to care for his penis. The doctor may recommend some products to aid in healing.
