Even though circumcision is often associated with infants, the procedure is commonly performed on men of all ages.
We perform all of our circumcision procedures on site at our clinic in Adelaide — no need for a doctor’s referral or hospital visit. Looking for adult circumcision Adelaide?
Why should I get circumcised as an adult?
At this point in your life, getting circumcised will likely be due to the health benefits it can bring. Some of the main motivations can be:
- Phimosis. This is a condition where the foreskin of your penis is too tight, making it difficult to pull back. You should see a GP in this case, who may recommend circumcision.
- Paraphimosis. If you have a tight skin and force it over the head, you could end up with it getting stuck. This is an urgent medical condition.
- Balanoposthitis. If you commonly get bacterial or fungal infections, this can lead to inflammation and discomfort.
Sexually transmitted infections/ sexually transmitted diseases. Having your foreskin removed can mean that there is less chance of contracting an infection from a sexual partner.
You may also want a circumcision for cosmetic or personal reasons. Regardless, we will be willing to consult with you and provide the procedure you need.
How painful is adult circumcision?
Though there may be more discomfort and pain when getting the procedure as an adult, as opposed to an infant, the pain is still mild. We use a local anesthetic to numb the area before operating.
Getting an adult circumcision with us is simple. We apply an EMLA cream to numb the penis area around 30 minutes before the procedure. The circumcision itself takes no more than 20 minutes, unless more stitching is needed.
After that, all you have to do is wait for another 30 minutes in the sitting area and you’ll be good to go!
