Many adult men request circumcisions. Although circumcision is a painful procedure, men feel
better about their bodies after the procedure. Many men want circumcisions because they don’t
want to be labeled as pedos, or “pets” by their peers. Men who undergo circumcisions are free
to wear less-revealing clothes and become proud of their new bodies. A few reasons may be
listed below. Read on to learn about the risks and benefits of circumcision for men.
The recovery time from an adult men circumcision varies, but is generally two to three weeks.
Some people take a week off work following their circumcision. Others may not be able to return
to normal activities for longer. Some people may experience pain while masturbating for six
weeks. Your doctor will guide you on the recovery time. Afterward, the pain is usually mild and
temporary. Your doctor may prescribe an antibiotic to prevent infection.
Adult circumcisions take about 30 minutes. The procedure requires local anesthesia or general
anesthesia. During the procedure, the surgeon will move the foreskin away from the head of the
penis. They will measure how much skin they need to remove. The excess skin is then cut away
with a razor. The remaining skin will be stitched back onto the shaft. After the procedure, the
patient will be given a protective dressing to protect the area.
One of the benefits of circumcision is that it can protect men from HIV infection. According to
three studies, circumcision can reduce the risk of HIV by 60 percent. However, it is not an ideal
solution and many ethnic groups have strong cultural traditions against it. Circumcisions also
require abstinence for six weeks, and do not replace other forms of protection. But circumcision
does not solve every problem. In addition, many men cannot access clean water to bathe
Before having an adult men circumcision, Dr. Bidair will thoroughly review his medical history
and examine the foreskin to assess whether the procedure is right for the patient. He will also
discuss with the patient his expectations, any medical complications, and answer any questions
that he may have. The procedure does not just remove the foreskin; it also involves skillfully
repositioning and reducing the foreskin. Once he has assessed the risks, the patient will receive
a cost estimate.
In addition to genital warts, circumcision is also effective for treating lichen sclerosus, a type of
immune-mediated skin condition. This condition results in tightening of the foreskin, which can
lead to infections of the penis and urinary tract. Surgical circumcision can also help prevent the
development of lichen sclerosus, a condition that can cause the foreskin to be scarred and cause
infections. In addition, the procedure can cure infections resulting from phimosis, which occurs
when the foreskin becomes overly tight, and the foreskin becomes inflamed.
While there is no evidence to support the use of circumcision in preventing the spread of HIV
among circumcised men, the benefits of circumcision are worth considering. According to the
World Health Organization (WHO), circumcision has been shown to be effective in reducing the
risk of herpes and HPV on the penis. Furthermore, circumcision may protect against syphilis.
Regardless of the benefits, circumcision is a common procedure in the United States.
Health education is essential for safe male circumcision. UNAIDS and WHO recommend group
education sessions for men about sexual health and HIV. During these sessions, men should
receive basic information on hygiene, personal hygiene, HIV, and sexual health. A group health
education session for men should also cover circumcision-specific information. This includes
information on the health benefits of SMC, possible complications, and when to resume sexual
activity afterward. Additionally, health education should address myths about circumcision
A study in Zambia found that men’s readiness to undergo SMC was influenced by women’s
attitudes toward their partners’ bodies. While women in Botswana and Tanzania claimed that
circumcision was an essential step in their lives, these women had a limited influence over
men’s decisions. In addition, they often used “soft” language to influence their partners’
circumcision decisions. Moreover, men often sought circumcisions for social or romantic
reasons, which may be related to their partners’ expectations.
Another reason to get a circumcision for adult men is for cosmetic reasons. It preserves the
foreskin and permanently retracts it from the penis. To perform this procedure, Dr. Bidair
removes a portion of the skin from the base of the penis and pulls back the rest of the skin along
the shaft. He then sutures the base incision closed. Dr. Bidair’s office in San Diego offers
