Circumcision Toronto

Also Serving North York, Mississauga, and Scarborough Ontario

Many men have never been given the chance to decide whether or not they want to undergo circumcision, which is the surgical excision of the foreskin which covers the head of the penis. Their decisions would have been made for them before or immediately after birth by their parents based on perceived hygiene benefits and/or religious or cultural practices. For example, male babies of Muslim or Jewish heritage are much more likely to be circumcised than in any other culture. However, more and more uncircumcised adult males are seeking surgical intervention. Unfortunately, many hospitals and private clinics in Toronto are unwilling to dedicate operating room time for this procedure, leading to a waitlist of up to two years for a consultation. Thankfully, Dr. Hong’s office will try their best to see you as soon as possible.

Why get circumcised as an adult?

Adult males may choose to get circumcised for both cosmetic and clinical reasons. Some men may experience chronic infections under the foreskin, painful erections, or an inability to fully retract their foreskins from the head of the penis (this is called phimosis). For these clinical reasons, circumcision may be covered by health insurance. However, many men also choose to get circumcised as a part of Cosmetic Surgery . One survey found that 90% of women thought circumcised penises looked better, and this appeal to the opposite sex may be a quite a large influence on a man’s decision to get circumcised. Many men also think that circumcision would improve hygiene, as they would not have to worry about cleaning the area underneath the foreskin. Finally, some men who undergo conversion of faiths (such as into Judaism) may need to seek circumcision as well.

What are the benefits of circumcision?

There are many studies that have found benefits to circumcision. They have found that there is a reduced risk of urinary tract infections, sexually transmitted diseases and penile cancer. In addition, it prevents cases of inflammation of the head of the penis and the foreskin. It also prevents cases where there is an inability to retract the foreskin (phimosis) or return it to its original location (paraphimosis). It also makes it easier to keep the end of the penis clean. However, regular good hygiene techniques can help prevent uncircumcised penises against many of these problems, and condoms will help prevent STDs and other infections.

What are the risks of circumcision?



Code: Circumcision is a relatively simple procedure performed in around an hour. After administering either local freezing or general anaesthetic (see next section), Dr. Hong will push the extra foreskin from the head of the penis and clip off the excess. The two remaining edges of skin will be stitched together using small, dissolvable stitches. You can go home the same day as the surgery, though if you were put under general anaesthesia you will need someone to drive you home. Your penis may be bruised and swollen for the first two days, but it will generally be healed in 5-7 days. You will likely not feel much pain, but Dr. Hong will prescribe Tylenol 3 just in case. You will have a dressing over the area, and you should not shower while you still have one on. Strenuous exercises should be avoided for four weeks, and intercourse or masturbation should be stopped for six weeks.
