What Does Partial Circumcision Look Like?

When it comes to circumcision, there are a few different options to choose from. One of these options is partial circumcision. Partial circumcision is a quick, simple procedure that can help alleviate many conditions related to the penis’ foreskin. It can help to treat conditions like phimosis, paraphimosis, balanoposthitis and frenulum breve, all of which are uncomfortable or painful for men. Circumcision can also reduce the risk of infections in this area. However, a number of people have religious or moral objections to the procedure and may not be able to undergo circumcision.

During the procedure, the doctor cleans the penis and places sterile drapes around it. Then, he uses a skin-marking pen to mark the area where the foreskin will be removed. The doctor then removes the foreskin, leaving behind the inner mucosal layer and some of the outer foreskin, securing the two with glue and a few stitches to prevent complications such as infection.

After the procedure, your son may experience some pain, bruising and swelling in the area. The swelling is normal and usually subsides within a few days. Your son should avoid sex for about a month. Applying antibiotic ointment to the head of the penis several times a day will minimize discomfort and keep it protected from urine and feces. The site should be washed with water a few times a day and after each diaper change.

In some cases, a circumcision can cause problems such as tight foreskin (phimosis) on the penis’ glans or significant scarring that requires circumcision revision. If your son experiences any of these symptoms, it is best to consult with a pediatric urologist.
