Circumcision

What is Circumcision ?

It is not normal for every infant or kid to be circumcisied. Circumcision is a surgical treatment to remove the foreskin covering the penis’s end in a kid. Sometimes a child is born with two instead of one flaps covering. In such an instance it becomes essential for a kid to have circumcision surgery.

It is done for medical, personal and religious reasons.

Fun Fact: Did you know that a baby boy’s foreskin will not pull fully till the child reaches the age of 5.

What causes circumcision in my child ?

  • Prenatal issue- If a baby is born before the full term of 9 months.
  • If the baby develops penile issues in the womb itself.
  • Paraphimosis.
  • A tightened foreskin.

What is the optimum line of treatment for circumcision ?

It is a wrong belief that circumcision treatment is harmful. On the contrary, it is safe and we do any surgery only after studying the cause of circumcision in a kid. If it’s for a medical reason we conduct a proper diagnosis before the surgery.

How to diagnose a circumcised penis ?

There are many ways utilised by us to check if a baby has a circumcised penis. These are always used and recommended by our Doctor.

Physical examination- The Doctor can find the circumcised penis by looking at the penis of a baby. If the foreskin doesn’t pull back till the age of 5 then he recommends the surgery.

How to treat a circumcised penis ?

We use the surgical method to remove the penis foreskin and recommend it to be performed by the age of 1 year. At this age, it is easy to care for a child’s penis. The surgery we do is painless and the child will remain sedated till the surgery is complete.

The surgery is recommended normally 72 hours after the child’s birth.

There are 4 major steps involved in a circumcision surgery which are:

  • The baby’s arms and legs are restrained on a bed to avoid any movement
  • The anaesthesia is administered in form of an injection or skin cream on the child’s penis.
  • A special clamp is placed around the foreskin to cut all the blood supply. And the pediatric urologist removes the foreskin.

How do I care for my kid after circumcision surgery ?

We recommend you to follow these steps after a child’s surgery to quicken the healing process.

  • It is best to avoid giving a bath to the child till 1 week after the surgery as the wound is in a healing process.
  • Always clean the area with a soft cloth. And reapply the petroleum jelly on the penis and cover it with a loose and new gauze cloth and change the diaper.
  • Place the baby gently in and out of the tub while the penis is healing.
