In newborn babies, circumcision surgery can be performed in several ways. The doctor will determine which method is appropriate according to the situation. The three most common circumcision techniques are described as follows:
In this procedure, a special instrument which is known as a probe is used for the separation of the foreskin from the head of the penis (they are generally joined with a thin membrane). Then, a bell-shaped device is fitted over the head of the penis and under the foreskin (i.e., an incision is made in the foreskin to allow this). The foreskin is then pulled in the upward direction and over the bell and then the clamp is tightened around it for reducing the blood flow to the area. A scalpel is finally used to cut and remove the foreskin of the penis.
This procedure also involves the removal of the foreskin from the head of the penis with the help of a probe. The foreskin is then pulled out in front of the head and inserted through a metal clamp with a slot in it. The clamp is then held in place while the foreskin is cut with the help of a scalpel, holding the clamp for a few minutes to make sure that bleeding is now controlled. After which the clamp is removed.
This method is quite similar to the Gomco clamp technique. After the separation part with the help of a probe, the plastic bell is then placed under the foreskin and then over the head of the penis. A piece of suture is then tied around the foreskin, which totally stops the blood supply to the foreskin. A scalpel is then used to remove the extra foreskin, but the plastic ring is left on. After 6 to 12 days the plastic ring falls off on its own.
