Circumcision can be an anxious time, both for the patient as well as the parents. Here at Circumcision in London, we take out the worry as you can be sure that your son will receive the best possible care. We perform circumcision under local anaesthetic, so that your son will not feel any pain during the circumcision. When you come in to the clinic, there will be a consultation where we will explain what we are going to do step by step and answer any questions you may have. When you are comfortable, we begin by giving your son local anaesthetic. We wait a few minutes for the anaesthetic to work and then test him before starting the circumcision, showing you exactly how he does not feel any pain. It is only once you say that you are happy that your son does not feel any pain, we begin the circumcision. Once we finish, you will be able to put on his underwear and his trousers and take him back home normally. You will also have our aftercare instructions to take home which explains to you everything you need to know on how to care for your son.
Forceps Guided Circumcision Method
This procedure is usually used for older children and adults. After application of local anaesthetic, the foreskin is pulled in front of the head of the penis (glans). Special forceps is applied just in front of the head of the penis (glans) and the foreskin is removed using thermal cautery, guided by the smooth surface of the special forceps. This will give a clean and tidy cut. There is minimal bleeding and may sometimes not require any sutures.
Preparation for Circumcision
The circumcision will be carried out under local anaesthetic and preparation is very minimal. You will be required to bring the following with you:
Clean underwear - preferably tight briefs
Your son's red book
The aftercare we give our patients is very comprehensive, yet simple. Once we finish the circumcision, we will show you how to apply your son's underwear which can be placed immediately. The aftercare sheet will also explain how to wash your son and what to expect over the coming days. There are simple instructions to follow and we are always available for contact if you have any further questions or concerns. We can be reached via phone, email or in person with our free follow ups.
