Improved Hygiene: Circumcision facilitates the cleaning of the genital area, which can reduce the risk of infections and hygiene-related issues throughout life.
Reduced Risk of Urinary Infections: Circumcision in infants and children can decrease the likelihood of urinary tract infections compared to those who are uncircumcised.
Lower Risk of Sexually Transmitted Diseases: Some studies suggest that circumcised men may have a lower risk of contracting certain sexually transmitted diseases, such as HIV.
Reduced Risk of Penile Cancer: Circumcision can decrease the risk of developing penile cancer in men.
Prevention of Phimosis and Paraphimosis: Circumcision can prevent issues like phimosis (narrowing of the foreskin) and paraphimosis (strangulation of the penis by the foreskin).
Improved Sexual Function: Some men report increased sensitivity or improved sexual function after circumcision.
Public Health Benefits: Circumcision in some cases can contribute to public health by reducing the risk of certain infectious diseases.
Laser circumcision is a modern and effective procedure used to remove the penile foreskin more precisely and with fewer risks compared to traditional methods. During the surgery, a high-precision laser is used to cut the foreskin tissue in a controlled manner, resulting in less bleeding and faster recovery. Furthermore, the laser technique provides greater precision in tissue removal, which can reduce the risk of complications and enhance aesthetic outcomes.
Circumcision is a surgical procedure in which the foreskin, the fold of skin covering the tip of the penis, is surgically removed.
Circumcision is performed under local or general anesthesia, which helps minimize pain during the procedure. Babies typically receive local anesthesia to reduce discomfort.
The benefits of circumcision can include improved genital hygiene, reduced risk of urinary and reproductive tract infections, as well as a decreased risk of certain sexually transmitted diseases.
Circumcision can be performed on infants, children, or adults, but the recommended age may vary based on personal preferences and medical reasons.
After the procedure, it’s important to follow the doctor’s instructions, which may include using ointments or creams in the area, keeping the penis clean, and avoiding activities that could stretch or irritate the wound.
