With the advancement in medical science, circumcision can now be done by laser procedure. Furthermore, Laser Circumcision is different from the traditional method of circumcision, which uses medical scissors or a scalpel.
The surgical removal of the foreskin, the skin which covers the tip of the penis is called circumcision. The procedure is a fairly common religious practice for newborn boys in various parts of the world.
The procedure of laser circumcision is a minimally invasive procedure with no bleeding, which makes healing faster and easier. It is a 20-minute procedure and is performed under local, general or spinal anesthesia.
After reaching the hospital, the patient is immediately taken for pre-surgery medical tests and given anesthesia. In case the patient is given local anesthesia, he may be discharged the same day after the procedure. In such cases, the doctor advises the patient to stay in the hospital for 3-5 hours after the procedure. After that, the patient can go home easily.
In laser circumcision, the laser cuts through the foreskin. Because of this, the patient has no bleeding or pain during the procedure.
