Adult circumcision can be performed on a male adult. It is similar to a circumcision for a child but done on an adult. Minor bleeding may occur during the circumcision procedure. Some may notice bleeding around the incision area days after the procedure. Because a wound is created during the circumcision, infection may occur. To reduce this risk, follow the postsurgical care instructions provided by your surgeon. Some people may experience complications due to anesthesia. These include allergic reactions, vomiting and difficulty waking.

Preparation of circumcision

The man should be completely clean before undergoing adult circumcision. He should avoid alcohol, as well as other substances that could dehydrate him. Also, he should avoid wearing tight clothing that might cause discomfort. The day before the procedure, he should shower and wear loose-fitting boxers. He should also bring over-the-counter painkillers such as Ibuprofen or Co-Codamol. The man should not have sex for the first few days after his circumcision. Six weeks after the procedure, the patient can resume sexual activity.

The entire procedure takes approximately 15 minutes. The procedure takes about 15 minutes. The man can go home, but the stitches need to be kept clean. To prevent infection, the man should use petroleum jelly to wrap the circumcision. To prevent blood from accumulating, the patient should remove his underwear. The doctor should ask the man for permission to keep the dressing on until the procedure is complete. The doctor should ensure that the male is prepared for the healing process. Fluids should also be available.

Procedure

Adult circumcision involves the removal and resection of the penis. The procedure is performed in one day. This means that you won’t have to stay in hospital overnight. You may be asked not to eat for six hours prior to the procedure. Before the procedure, a medical team will examine you. The doctor will answer your questions about the procedure. After the procedure, you are able to resume your normal activities. However, you should refrain sexual activity for six week.

A local anesthetic is injected near the base of the penis, making the procedure painless. Local anaesthesia is also used if possible, as this makes the procedure less invasive. Your doctor will then make an incision at the base of the penis, and cut off the entire foreskin using a scalpel or surgical scissors. The doctor will close the incision with dissolvable stitches. The doctor may give you a dressing to use until the stitches are gone.

Complications

Routine circumcision is considered to be a low-risk procedure, but complications can still occur. Complication rates may depend on factors such as the patient’s age, weight, and experience of health care providers. Listed below are the most common complications that can occur during adult circumcision. The AAN website has a complete list of possible complications. While complications can sometimes be avoided, there are still risks that must be understood.

Bleeding, infection, and hematoma are some of the most common complications that circumcision can cause. Poor cosmesis can lead to tearing of sutures and increased sensitivity when intercourse is performed. Infection is typically treated with local antibiotics and/or parenteral antibiotics. Bleeding diathesis may require the use of intravenous clotting factors. Regardless of the risks, circumcision can be considered a safe procedure for most patients.

Results

Recent research examined the results of adult circumcision. The study included 123 circumcisions of men, 64% of which were for medical reasons. The other 17% had circumcisions for nonmedical reasons, such as posthitis or redundant foreskin. The majority of men were satisfied with their results. Only six men reported a negative experience. Adult circumcision may cause a decrease in erectile function, decreased penile sensitivity, and a decrease in sexual activity. The study also showed that males who reported no adverse effects were happier with the procedure than those who participated in the control group.

The study’s design is described here. Participants were recruited from youth groups, workplaces, and sexually-oriented organizations. Participants were then assigned to a study group and given an appointment. For the study to be eligible, men must be HIV-negative, between 18 and 24, and residents of Kisumu District. Those who were ineligible included those with less than half of their glans or who had undergone previous circumcision. Participants who did not meet the inclusion criteria were also excluded, as were those with bleeding disorders, keloid formation, or other medical conditions that might interfere with the procedure.
