Boys & Teenagers
Every patient reacts differently to anaesthetic and there is no definite rule as to when your son should return to school. Most take at least a week off. Many parents often opt for their sons to be circumcised during the school holiday, this way there is little disruption to their academic and sporting activities. In addition, it also means your son is not having to explain his treatment to other colleagues at school – something he may find awkward and embarrassing. They also have ample time to rest and recover during the school holidays. Please do not let your son return to sporting activity for at least 4 weeks after the operation.
We recommend planning ahead and ensuring you call and book your appointments with the clinic well in advance to avoid disappointment.
If there are any abnormalities such as Hypospadias or a severe buried penis then circumcision will not be performed.
Hypospadius is when the opening to the urethra (where urine exits from) is not at the tip of the head of the penis but instead is running along the base of the head of the penis and in some cases the shaft.
A buried penis is defined as when there is a large amount of pelvic fat sitting just behind the base of the penis and gives the illusion of the penis being shorter in length than it actually is. The result is that it is partially or completely hidden below the surface of the skin.
We do not routinely prescribe antibiotics after the procedure. We do, however, prescribe you an antibiotic cream to apply to the wound 3 times a day in the week following the procedure.
At Circumcision Pro, we believe our clients are clients for life and we are always on hand to help answer your questions and address your concerns. At the initial consultation, we will go through the entire aftercare process with you. We will also provide you with a comprehensive pack consisting of relevant prescriptions, a summary sheet of the aftercare instructions, a letter to be handed into your son’s GP stating what specific procedure has been performed, as well as our 24/7 contact details.
