For adult circumcision, I use the sleeve resection technique in which the foreskin is removed as a single ring of tissue utilizing a scalpel. In my opinion, this gives a symmetrical, fine incision line. In addition to a refined scar line, this technique allows the final result to be customized to the patient's specifications if he has a particular outcome in mind. Many urologists perform adult circumcisions with general anesthesia. This is a more complicated and expensive procedure than local anesthesia. I perform almost all of the procedures for my patients utilizing local anesthetics.

Frank -- he'd prefer not to reveal his last name -- knows his foreskin is gone forever, but he's angry he was circumcised as a newborn when he was too little to say yay or nay to a procedure that changed him forever, and that he believes left him with decreased sexual sensation compared with men who aren't circumcised. As the American Academy of Pediatrics prepares to update its policy statement on circumcision, the debate rages on over whether boys should be circumcised at birth. On the one hand, recent studies show circumcised men have lower rates of some sexually transmitted diseases, including HIV, and they're less likely to transmit diseases to their sexual partners. On the other hand, circumcision involves pain for the baby -- how much is debatable -- and babies are incapable of saying whether they want it.
The surgical procedure to remove the foreskin covering the tip of the penis is called male circumcision. Circumcision can be done at any age, although infant circumcision is common, as it may be less risky than teen circumcision. The acceptability of circumcision may vary in teenage boys, and informed consent is mandatory for this procedure. Read this post to know more about teenage circumcision, its advantages, and the recovery after the surgery.
