Circumcision Clinic in Singapore

Male adult circumcision is the removal of the foreskin from the human penis.

When is it done?

Circumcision for adults is a medical treatment option for patients with recurring foreskin infections and phimosis (tight foreskin opening). Circumcision is also done for religious reasons.

 

How is adult circumcision performed?

Several circumcision methods are available for adults.

DTAP clinics utilize two methods: Shang Ring method and the Stapler Method

 

Shang Ring Method

The Shang Ring method is often considered one of the safest methods of circumcision by many medical professionals worldwide.

Under local anaesthesia, the Shang Ring will first be inserted in the foreskin. An outer clamp is then applied externally. Penile Foreskin above the ring is then removed using surgical scissors.

The Shang Ring will be left in place for 10-14  days, after which, the patient will return to the clinic for ring removal.

 

Do you need to fast before the circumcision procedure?

There is no need to fast as the Shang Ring method is done under local anaesthesia. You are advised to have a light meal before the circumcision procedure.

This procedure may be eligible for Medisave (up to 10%) and Insurance claims (up to 100%). For more information about the claims process, please contact DTAP Clinic.

 

Is the procedure painful?

No injections are needed for local anaesthetics. Topical anaesthetic cream is used during the procedure. The excess foreskin will be removed, and stitches along with glue will be used to close the incision.

After surgery, the patient will be prescribed oral painkillers. As absorbable stitches are used, there is no need to remove them a week after the procedure.

 

Will I be able to pass urine normally after the circumcision procedure?

Some people may experience mild discomfort when passing urine right after the circumcision procedure. This is normal and will usually ease off over the next few days. Male circumcision is a common and usually safe procedure.

What are the things you need to look out for after the procedure?

There is a chance of unusual bleeding or wound infection. This is minimised by stopping the bleeding during surgery and completing a course of antibiotics after the circumcision procedure.

Besides that, males usually get multiple erections at night while asleep, and if this happens right after the surgery it may cause your sutures/adhesive to break and cause your wound to open up. You can apply a frozen bag of peas on the penis when an erection that causes severe pain occurs.

This complication is uncommon and if this happens, you will need to consult your surgeon.

Will I be able to live an active life right after the procedure?

It is advisable to avoid any activities that may cause pressure or friction at the surgical site for 2 weeks. It’s is advised to put on a brief to hold up the penis and reduce swelling.

Usually, after 4 to 6 weeks, you can start being sexually active.

Also, a medical certificate is usually given for 1 to 2 weeks to recover.
