Laser circumcisions


Laser Circumcision is a surgical procedure used for the excision of the foreskin, which is the skin covering the penis's tip

It is distinct from the traditional method that uses healthcare scissors or a scalpel. It is a non-invasive procedure that causes no bleeding and allows faster healing. In this case, the wound doesn't irritate as much as it does in the traditional method. 

Basic Consideration for Circumcision

Laser Circumcision is a surgical procedure used for the excision of the foreskin, which is the skin covering the penis's tip.

  The  benefits of the procedure are

  1. It’s a short procedure and usually takes 20 minutes to operate
  2. Local, general, or spinal anaesthesia is given to the patient after performing a few medical tests.
  3. In the case of local anaesthesia, the patient may get discharged after 3-5 hours of observation period as recommended by the practitioner. 
  4. The procedure does not cause any discomfort to the patient.

Various problems associated with the Foreskin

  1. There exist several foreskin-related problems that can be treated via circumcision. These include:
  2. Phimosis: The inability to retract the skin (foreskin or prepuce) surrounding the head (glans) of the penis.
  3. Paraphimosis: It is a disorder where the foreskin becomes lodged behind the tip of the penis, obstructing  the blood circulation to the penis. It causes painful urination, infections, or intercourse (dysuria).
  4. Balanitis: An infection of glans of the penis. Symptoms of these are skin rashes, thrush, or other skin problems that cause the head of a penis to become inflamed or swollen. 
  5. Foreskin problems can be caused due to several reasons like:-
  6. Including overly tight foreskin
  7. Poor hygiene: Not keeping the pubic area dry and clean may cause infections and ultimately balanitis.
  8. Infection: Infections like genital yeast infections are common in men. This fungal infection leads to balanitis.
  9. TYPE-2 Diabetes.
  10.  Sexually transmitted infections, foreskin inflammation, and so on.

Recovery and Post op care after laser circumcisions procedure
