Boys & Teenagers
You need to arrive at the clinic one hour before the circumcision for your son to have topical anaesthetic cream applied.
On the day, we will first explain the procedure and discuss any potential complications. Then, we will go through the details of the immediate aftercare and provide contact details should you have any further questions once you get home. You will have our support through every step of the process.
We will need both parents to sign the consent form with verbal approval noted from your son.
The circumcision is carried out in 2 steps. Initially, he will be taken to the operating room to have the local anaesthetic nerve block administered. We will then allow the anaesthetic to effect in and subsequently call you back in for the main procedure. The procedure is likely to take around 45 minutes to 1 hour.
Once we have completed the circumcision we will ask you to remain in the clinic for a further 15 to 20 minutes so that we can check to ensure there is no bleeding. We will also answer any final questions and concerns you may have. You will be given access to our 24/7 aftercare service, allowing you to return home with your minds at ease.
