Adult circumcision is an uncomfortable topic for many, however whatever the reason for undergoing a circumcision, it is almost certain Dr Read is familiar with it and you should not be embarrassed to attend and discuss it with him.
There are many reasons why a man may choose to undergo circumcision. Many adult men and teens seek circumcision for medical, health, sexual, cultural, religious and cosmetic reasons. Other men may decide upon adult circumcision because most males are circumcised, making them feel like they want to fit in with the majority.
The surgery itself will usually take an hour. Shaving of the scrotum and pubic hair is performed pre-operatively. On completion of the procedure a fine, skin-coloured, absorbable stitch is used. Every endeavour is taken to ensure a good cosmetic outcome.
It is important to note that some of the disadvantages of adult circumcision have conflicting data. For example, there is evidence that recovering from pain following circumcision is rapid. Complications following the procedure are rare and typically no greater than a temporary infection.
In spite of numerous studies, there is no conclusive evidence to definitively prove or disprove most of the purported benefits or disadvantages of adult circumcision surgery.
