How do we perform foreskin removal
– described by doctor Agnieszka Chomicz
The patient should be adequately prepared for circumcision. Before the procedure, the patient should see a doctor who will perform it. The doctor will carry out an extensive interview and ask you, among other things, about the diseases, medications and will carry out additional tests. Before the planned procedure, the patient should be in full health, during this period one should not take antibiotics, and after consulting the doctor one should also discontinue anticoagulants. Before the procedure, pubic hair should be removed.
The scope of the surgical removal of the foreskin depends on the degree of its narrowing, it may run as a plastic surgery, and in more advanced cases as a complete circumcision. During the procedure, the urologist makes a longitudinal incision in one or several places along the axis of the penis. Proper formation and sewing of the skin with a special stitch results in a desired widening of the foreskin.
