Common Questions About Adult Circumcision in Ireland

Common Questions About Circumcision for Adults

Our circumcision doctor will evaluate your case and determine which adult circumcision method is best. All of our techniques can deliver a good result, and the decision will be made based on our physician’s experience and professional judgment.

Some patients have a preference, but given that the end result is the same, the recommended approach is to let the doctor decide the circumcision technique most applicable to your procedure.

The procedure itself usually takes about 15 – 30 minutes once the anesthetic has taken effect. Generally, plan to be in our office for about 1.5 hours.
We employ a highly effective local anaesthetic to ensure you are numb prior to proceeding.
The morning of your circumcision we recommend that you avoid coffee and other caffeinated beverages or stimulants. It is best if you are calm. Follow your normal breakfast routine (except for minimizing coffee) so that you will feel your normal self.
In all cases, the minimum length of time will be 6 weeks before the wound heals.
For those with an office job, you may return in 2-3 days. For those who work physical jobs, we suggest you rest for 5-7 days.
After your first week of taking it really easy, you may resume regular activities as long as you are pain-free, including sports or going to the gym. You should avoid any activity that puts pressure on the penis or scrotum for at least 3 weeks (biking etc.). No contact sports for 6 – 8 weeks.
You should not have sex or masturbate for 6 weeks after getting circumcised as an adult.
Most adult circumcision patients find that there is minimal pain post-operatively. Expect some mild discomfort after your procedure for a couple of days just like with any surgery, after which there may be some discomfort during the first 2 weeks with nocturnal erections but they are generally mild and relieved with paracetamol or ibuprofen.
