Phimosis is a condition in which the foreskin can’t be retracted (pulled back) from around the tip of the penis. A tight foreskin is common in baby boys who aren’t cicumcised , but it usually stops being a problem by the age of 3.
Phimosis can occur naturally or be the result of scarring. Young boys may not need treatment for phimosis unless it makes urinating difficult or causes other symptoms. As these boys grow up, the need for treatment may increase.
If you or your child has pathologic phimosis (which is caused by some type of condition), there are various reasons it might develop, including:
Your healthcare provider can diagnose phimosis during a physical examination. In addition, they might order tests to find out if there’s an infection present in urine or penis discharge
Physiological phimosis (congenital) typically doesn’t need treatment. Usually, your child grows out of it. Your provider might also call this primary phimosis.
Pathological phimosis, also called secondary phimosis, does need to be treated.
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.
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.
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.
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.
No, barring any complications, you will not be catheterized after the surgery, since circumcision does not affect kidney function at all.
Frenuloplasty surgery can help relieve tightness of foreskin without the need to remove the foreskin but laser circumcision is more effective because the healing is faster and easier and the patient can resume their daily activities within 2-3 days.
