Circumcision Clinic in Singapore –
Dr. Tan and Partners @Somerset.
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 recurrent foreskin infections, phimosis (tight foreskin opening), and for religious reasons.
Do you need to fast before the circumcision procedure?
No. There is no need to fast. It is done under local anaesthesia. You are advised to have a light meal before the circumcision procedure.
Is the procedure painful?
Under local anaesthetic, the excess foreskin will be removed, and stitches along with glue will be used to close the incision. In other words, you will only feel the prick of the needle which is used to administer the local anaesthetic.
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 after the procedure?
There is a chance of bleeding more than usual or the wound getting infected. 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 occurs and causes a lot of pain.
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?
You are advised 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.
What is the cost?
Circumcision for adults (>21 years old) is currently available at Dr Tan and partners@Somerset.
The surgical cost for the circumcision procedure is $1500.00 and inclusive of follow up to review AFTER surgery.
