What is laser circumcision?

Laser circumcision is one of the most advanced circumcision procedures. During the procedure, the surgeon cuts off the foreskin using a high-energy laser beam. Since a laser is used to create the incision, there is no bleeding, and the wound edges are clean. It also completely preserves the surrounding tissues and is best for tissue conservation.

The surgery only takes 10-15 minutes and has a much shorter recovery time compared to other circumcision procedures. Laser circumcision is also preferred over other procedures as there is very little postoperative pain or discomfort associated with it.

      Diagnosis

      You can get a circumcision for religious or cosmetic circumcision or if you are unhappy with the size, shape, or appearance of the foreskin. If you have any pain, inflammation, or infection on your foreskin or the tip of your penis, then you might qualify for medical circumcision. 

      Your urologist will retract your foreskin to examine your penis glans for any signs of infection, injury, or inflammation, and its extent, if any, to determine whether surgical treatment is necessary.

      Common diagnostic tests performed before circumcision are:

      • Urinalysis for UTI detection by checking the appearance, concentration, and content of the patient’s urine
      • Tissue culture/swab tests to examine the foreskin for bacterial/fungal infection in a laboratory
      • Random blood sugar and glucose urine tests to find the glucose levels (for diabetic patients)

      How to prepare for laser circumcision surgery?

      How to prepare for laser circumcision surgery?

      You have to follow the given instructions to prepare yourself for laser circumcision surgery:

      • Inform your surgeon about your complete medical history, including any chronic conditions you are suffering from and regular medicines you are taking. Blood thinners and similar medicines increase the chances of hemorrhage during the surgery, so your surgeon will give you instructions to prepare for the surgery accordingly.
      • If your surgery is being performed under general anesthesia, then you should avoid eating anything for at least 6-8 hours before the surgery. 
      • Arrange for someone to drive you home after the surgery as you may be discharged on the same day and it is not advisable to drive on the same day as the surgery.
      • Avoid alcohol for at least 48 hours. Stop tobacco consumption, such as gutka, smoking, etc. before the surgery as they may interfere with the healing process.
      • If your job entails manual labor, you should take at least a week off from work, especially if you are undergoing open surgery.

      What to expect after laser circumcision?

      What to expect after laser circumcision?

      Recovery after laser circumcision is often faster and involves fewer complications/side effects as compared to conventional circumcision. Laser circumcision is completed in less than 30 minutes and patients are discharged from the hospital after a few hours on the same day. There is very minimal pain or discomfort after the surgery, which can be managed by NSAID painkillers. The patients may also need to take antibiotics to prevent infections. 

      The patient may have penile swelling and discomfort for about 3-4 days, and most patients are able to return to regular life and office routine in 1-3 days (6-7 days for people performing manual labor). Typically healing takes about 7-10 days.

      When is laser circumcision required?

      When is laser circumcision required?

      You may require a laser circumcision if:

      • you are unhappy with the look, size, or shape of your foreskin.
      • you have pain or discomfort while peeing.
      • you can’t retract your foreskin.
      • your penis is releasing a foul-smelling discharge.
      • your penis is swollen.
      • you notice blood on the tips of your penis.

      Although circumcision is an elective procedure, any pain or discomfort of the penis should be taken very seriously and treated promptly as any delay in the treatment can lead to irreversible damage to the penis.

      Benefits of laser circumcision

      Benefits of laser circumcision

      A laser circumcision operation is an effective way of permanently removing the foreskin from the penis with the least amount of postsurgical complications. The surgery does not require any hospitalization and can be easily performed under local anesthesia which reduces the risks of postsurgical anesthesia-related complications.

      It also has a much quicker and painless recovery period as compared to open circumcision surgery. It is more precise than stapler circumcision surgery and helps prevent complications such as regrowth of the foreskin. It also has a clean scar which provides good aesthetics after the surgery.

      Recovery after laser circumcision

      Recovery after laser circumcision

      You should follow the given tips to enhance your recovery after laser circumcision surgery:

      • You should clean and shave your pubes to maintain hygiene. Wear tight-fitting underwear or compression undergarments immediately after the surgery to keep the surgical gauze in place.
      • Avoid sex and masturbation for about 6 weeks after the surgery to allow your penis to heal completely.
      • While recovering, apply petroleum jelly to the tip of the penis, to avoid it sticking to your underwear.
      • Wear light, loose-fitting clothing to avoid irritation to your penis while healing.
      • Avoid heavy lifting and physically strenuous work during recovery.
      • Take good care of your wound.
      • Clean your wound twice every day.
      • Do not pull or scratch your penis while healing.
      • If you have any pain, take over-the-counter pain medications. If your pain is not manageable through those, consult your urologist.

      FAQs

      How soon after laser circumcision can I have sex/masturbate?

      Depending on the type of the surgery, most men are recommended to avoid sexual activity for at least 6 weeks as any sexual activity before that can cause complications with wound healing and increase the chances of contracting STIs.

      How long will I stay in the hospital for laser circumcision?

      It depends on the circumcision technique. For laser and stapler circumcision, you will only be hospitalized for 3-4 hours and can go home on the same day but for open circumcision, 1-day hospitalization may be required.

      How soon after laser circumcision can I return to work?

      If you have a desk job, you can return to work within 2-3 days of the surgery, however, if your work entails physical labor, you may need to wait about a week or so before returning to work.

      Will I be catheterized after laser circumcision surgery?

      No, barring any complications, you will not be catheterized after the surgery, since circumcision does not affect kidney function at all.

      How will I know if there is an infection after laser circumcision?

      The most common signs of infection after circumcision surgery include the presence of discharge and pus (cloudy, yellowish/white, foul-smelling fluid), hot skin, and/or spreading redness around the wound site.
