FAQs

What does a circumcision involve?

Circumcision is carried out under general anaesthetic and usually takes around 30 minutes. The Consultant will remove the foreskin and stitch the edges of the skin together.  You will then be transferred back to your room to rest, and you should be able to return home on the same day.

Does circumcision hurt?

It is normal for the penis to be bruised and sore after the operation, and this should subside after a week. You should not drive or operate machinery for 24 hours after the operation, and you should be able to return to work after about a week. Your Consultant will advise you further on your recovery during follow up consultations.
