A circumcision involves removing the penis’ skin and leaving the penis open. A Gomco clamp is
a special device used by doctors to circumcise the penis. It reduces blood flow to the foreskin to
prevent bleeding after the foreskin has been cut. There are many methods of circumcision. A
scalpel or a Gomco clamp may be used by the doctor to circumcise.
Your child might cry or show signs of stress after the circumcision. These may include changes
in blood pressure and oxygen saturation as well as cortisol levels. Your baby might also
experience changes in behavior such as crying and sleeping irregularities. These changes
should go away within 24 hours. However, analgesia is recommended for a baby who may
experience pain during the circumcision procedure. After the circumcision, your baby will likely
need to be covered with a diaper.
Your child should stop eating for a few days before undergoing circumcision. Although you won’t
feel any sensations during the procedure you will still be aware. The anesthetic will temporarily
stop your body’s reactions and you may vomit. Wear loose clothing that won’t cause irritation to
the area around the procedure. If possible, arrange for someone to drive you home after the
During the first few days after the circumcision, your son must wash his foreskin. It may be
difficult to remove the foreskin during the procedure, but you can help your son prevent this by
teaching him how to clean it properly. After the circumcision, your son will be shown by his
healthcare provider how to clean it. After the circumcision, you will need to wash your foreskin
with warm water.
Once your child is well enough to undergo a circumcision, your healthcare provider will prepare
his penis for the procedure. After he has anesthetized his penis and cleaned it thoroughly, he will
attach plastic clamps to the penis. The clamp will keep the penis from moving while the doctor
cuts the foreskin. After cutting the foreskin your healthcare provider may apply petroleum jelly, or
ointment, to the penis. Then, he will wrap it with gauze. The entire procedure should take only 10
minutes. A hospital circumcision can take several hours.
If your child experiences any complications following the circumcision procedure, you should
consult a pediatric physician immediately. In some cases, the urologist may be able to lyse the
adhesions in the clinic with local anesthesia. If the skin is not healing properly, the urologist may
need to perform a revision of the circumcision. There may be complications with the plastic ring
such as bleeding or infection.
There are many benefits to circumcision, regardless of age. Uncircumcised penis can cause
UTIs and inflammation in infants. Uncircumcised men are also at increased risk for prostate
cancer and penile cancer. The foreskin can encourage colonization by human papillomavirus.
This is the most common type of cervical cancer. These risks can often be reduced with proper
Once the foreskin has been removed, the area is numbed with local anaesthetic, such as creams
and injections. A bell-shaped tool is used to separate the penis from the foreskin. The skin is
then removed by scalpel or scissors. Circumcision is an important part in a man’s overall health.
However, it requires special skills. The procedure should take approximately four to seven days.
Some cultures do not require that a boy be circumcised. A newborn boy who is stable and
healthy may have the procedure performed within his first 10 days. While most circumcisions are
performed in the pediatrician’s office for routine procedures, religious rituals can be performed at
home. The doctor will explain the procedure to parents and discuss possible risks and
complications. However, if the circumcision is performed during an early child’s first month, the
risks are greater.
