Many of the patients I see in consultation for circumcision have in fact, been circumcised previously. They present for revision surgery with complaints of incomplete circumcisions, skin bridges and difficulty with erections secondary due to too much penile skin being removed during the prior circumcision resulting in the scrotum being pulled up onto the penile shaft. All of these problem are correctable. In addition, I have modified the standard procedure with several innovative techniques to assure the best cosmetic result.
Most patients experience minimal discomfort during the first 24 to 48 hours after the procedure. Usually, only acetaminophen is utilized after the procedure. A small surgical dressing is applied to the penis which is left in place for 24 to 48 hours. Most likely your penis will be tender and sensitive to physical contact for 1 to 2 weeks. However, your ability to urinate should not be affected.
Although every person’s recovery time is different, you should be able to resume most of your daily activities within 2 to 3 days after the procedure. Sexual relations can be resumed usually 3 weeks after the procedure. Remember to be patient, and try not to rush your recovery time. Should any problems occur after your procedure, immediately contact me. This is especially important if you have a high temperature, or if your penis becomes excessively swollen, painful, red or inflamed.
