Why laser circumcision for adults?

Laser circumcision is usually advised to adults as it is the most advanced treatment in order to remove the foreskin of the penis. Laser Circumcision Surgery is performed by a urologist who is also a laser specialist. S/he uses a laser beam with high intensity to cut the skin tissues precisely. The urologists generally recommend laser circumcision to adults than traditional circumcision methods for the following advantages, such as:

Diagnosis & Procedure of Laser Circumcision

The urologist will conduct a thorough diagnosis that includes a physical examination regarding your medical history or current medication if you are taking any. If the circumcision is performed for a medical reason like foreskin infection, the urologist may recommend a few diagnostic tests such as blood test, urine culture, and a swab taken from the infected glans of the penis to detect the root cause of the condition. After a thorough diagnosis, the doctor will schedule the day of the surgery for laser circumcision.

Laser circumcision is performed under the effect of local or general anesthesia depending on the extent of the foreskin that needs to be removed from the foreskin of the penis. The anesthesia makes the area numb and painless when the urologist conducts laser-assisted circumcision. An electrocautery device is used with the help of a laser beam to remove the excess shaft of the foreskin from the penis. Through the high intensity of the laser, the skin is precisely cut while securing the skin edges in order to prevent bleeding. After the circumcision surgery is completed, you will be shifted to the observation room, where the nurse will check your vitals. Once the anesthesia wears off and the patient is not showing any odd signs, the urologist may advise discharge, and you can go home on the same day of the surgery.

Recovery after laser circumcision

As suggested by urologists, the patient resumes basic activities within the same day of the laser circumcision surgery. However, the complete recovery may take 10 to 15 days. There is a possibility you may feel little discomfort post circumcision operation that can be managed by the prescribed medication and given instructions by your urologists, such as:

  • Keep your body hydrated to promote the healing process
  • Refrain from taking a hot bath to avoid complications after circumcision
  • Keep the surgical site clean and dry to eliminate the risk of infections
