The patient can have intercourse after 3-4 weeks of his procedure. Sutures used during this procedure are self-dissolvable in 12-15 days after the procedure. Avoid strenuous physical workouts and traveling for long hours for 7-10 days after the procedure. Laser circumcision has no effect on fertility or male sexual health.
What will be the results of Laser Circumcision?
The results of the procedure broadly depend on the reason the patient had the procedure.
If the patient chose to have circumcision to stop or prevent infections or physical problems such as phimosis, the procedure is 100% successful. The patient would not face the problem again as there is no risk of recurrence after the laser procedure.
Each patient’s results are different. For most, the surgery does not have any impact on sexual function, urinating, or sensitivity.
Laser circumcision is a simple procedure with no risks or complications.
