Deciding to Undergo Adult Circumcision
Circumcision is a religious or cultural ritual for many Jewish and Islamic families, as well as certain aboriginal tribes in Africa and Australia. Circumcision can also be a matter of family tradition, personal hygiene, or preventive health care. Sometimes there’s a medical need for this procedure, such as when the foreskin is too tight to be pulled back (retracted) over the glans.
In other cases, particularly in certain parts of Africa, circumcision is recommended for older boys or men to reduce the risk of certain sexually transmitted infections. The American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) says the benefits of this surgery outweigh the risks. However, the AAP doesn’t recommend routine circumcision for all male newborns. The AAP leaves the decision up to parents — and supports the use of anesthetics for infants who have the procedure. Circumcision doesn’t affect fertility, nor is it generally thought to enhance or detract from sexual pleasure for men or their partners.
A repeat circumcision may be necessary if there is circumferential scarring of excessive residual skin or incomplete removal of the preputial skin during the initial surgery. Dr. Elist performs the procedure and repeats the procedure in the OR under general anesthesia or in the office with local anesthesia. Both options have the same great result, and the pain with local anesthesia is minimal to not present.

Making the Cut
If you are looking forward to undergoing a penile enlargement procedure with the Himplant to achieve a simultaneous increase in penis size, going through circumcision is a must. First, the skin at the base of the penis is cleansed with alcohol and allowed to dry.
Dr. Elist uses an index finger to palpate the lateral side of the penis to determine the position of the root of the penis. With a tuberculin syringe and needle, the anesthetic is injected parallel to the root of the penis. While the penis is stabilized by gentle downward or ventral traction, the needle is inserted at the base of the penis and inserted beneath the skin surface. The anesthetic is injected, and the needle is withdrawn. An incision is made around the base of the foreskin, the foreskin is pulled back, and it is cut away from the penis. Stitches are usually used to close the skin's edges
When it comes to adult circumcision, the results you experience will depend largely on the reason you had the procedure in the first place. You may never have to deal with these problems again in the future. It's important to remember that everyone's experience with adult circumcision is different, and you may find that you are affected in other ways. However, for most individuals, the surgery has no lasting impact on sexual function, urination, or sensitivity.
Take Time to Rest
Dr. Elist uses a unique surgical technique that minimizes discomfort and promotes faster healing. The procedure is typically performed under local anesthesia and typically takes about 30 minutes to complete. After the procedure, Dr. Elist will provide you with personalized aftercare instructions to ensure a smooth recovery. He will also be available to answer any questions or concerns you may have during your recovery period.
Adult circumcision is a safe and effective procedure; however, some risks include bleeding, infection, foreskin issues, or wound complications. However, Dr. Elist will monitor your recovery and be available for any concerns you have.
After an adult circumcision, recovery usually takes about two to three weeks. You may need to take a week off work during this time, and some people may require additional time before returning to normal activities. If your doctor gives you the green light, you can resume physical activities like exercise four weeks after the procedure. However, any type of sexual activity may need to be avoided for up to six weeks. Following your doctor's guidance on the appropriate timeline for resuming activities based on your individual healing and overall health is essential. Doing so can ensure a smooth recovery and optimal results from your adult circumcision*.
Please note that individual results may vary. The potential complications, risks, benefits, and alternatives, including no surgery, will be discussed with you extensively before proceeding with any procedure with your full consent in advance.
