Adult Circumcision, Right Here in Spring Hill, Underwood & Toowoomba

There are a number of reasons why men may choose to get circumcised at an adult age. Some require circumcision as a cure for conditions like Phimosis (an overly tight foreskin) while others choose circumcision for cosmetic and personal reasons. Whatever the reason for your choice to have circumcision later in life, we will be pleased to consult with you and schedule a surgery at your convenience.

With our skin glue closure method, in addition to the standard suture technique, we are able to obtain an improved cosmetic outcome without the typical multiple suture track marks in the skin. Adult circumcision procedures in our clinic offer optimal results with the least discomfort.

For more information please contact us today, appointments are generally available within a short time and no referral is required.

Before Adult Circumcision at our Clinics

  • The morning of your circumcision we recommend that you avoid coffee and other caffeinated beverages or stimulants. It is best if you are both physically and mentally calm. Bring your headphones and listen to your favourite relaxing music on your phone or other small music player during the surgery.

Take it easy the night before

  • Do your best to have a good sleep the night before and minimise coffee intake. Some patients find it stressful to skip coffee and if you are one of those people who really need their coffee in the morning maybe just have one cup. We know what it’s like to need your coffee!! The goal is to minimise your stress, so have a cup of coffee if skipping it is will cause distress. We recommend you have a support person with you and for them to drive you home.

The Surgery

The procedure itself will take about 15 minutes once the penis has been anaesthetised.

Due to Covid our post-operative process is that you are provided with Dr Hunt’s direct mobile phone number for you to speak with him when you need and to answer any questions you may have during the healing phase. You are more than welcome to see Dr Hunt at the location of your choice.

There will be a necessary period of rest and healing after an adult circumcision procedure. Even with our skin glue closure technique you will want to plan on a few days of reduced activity, and several weeks before fully resuming your normal routine.

Please see below for more information on post-procedure care and recovery.

Your may have some swelling in the first 2 days, this is generally not very painful, and over-the-counter pain relievers are all you usually need.

You will have a dressing over the head of your penis, please follow the doctor’s directions about when to remove it. Wear snug fitting underwear that will hold the penis upright, this will help the swelling go down.

You can return to work and your normal routine when you feel ready to. Some men return to sedentary work as soon as 2 – 3 days after circumcision. You will need to wait longer before returning to physical work.

You will be emailed on the day of your appointment aftercare instructions with specific instructions to follow after your operation. The information on this page gives you a general idea about how long it will take for you to recover, but each person recovers at a different pace.

Follow the aftercare instructions to heal as fast as possible. Dr Hunt will address your specific case and your detailed questions.

Rest when you feel tired. Getting enough sleep will help you recover fast. You may shower when you no longer have a bandage on your penis. Pat the cut (incision) dry. You may also take short baths if you wish.

Avoid strenuous activities, such as bicycle riding, jogging, weight lifting, or aerobic exercise, for 4 weeks or until your doctor says it is okay. You can return to work and normal activities, including driving, when you are comfortable doing them.

What to eat after circumcision as an adult

You can eat your normal diet. If your stomach is upset, try bland, low-fat foods like plain rice, broiled chicken, toast, and yogurt. Drink plenty of fluids (unless your doctor tells you not to). There is no medical reason to change from your usual meals in the days after getting circumcised. You will likely prefer to eat at home at least for the first day or two to maximize your comfort.

Incision care

Remove any dressing when your doctor says it is okay. Do this by soaking it off in a warm bath. Wear underwear that is comfortable for you. After the first few days, some men continue to prefer a snug fit for support, while others prefer loose-fitting briefs. Do what feels best for you.

Ice and elevation

Put ice or a cold pack on your groin for 10 to 20 minutes at a time. Try to do this every 1 to 2 hours for the first day. Put a thin cloth between the ice and your skin. Position your penis so that your underwear keeps it upright.

Sex After Circumcision

Do not have intercourse or masturbate for 6 weeks, or until your doctor says it is okay. An occasional erection is not harmful as long as you leave it alone. Do not stimulate the penis.

Medications After Adult Circumcision

Your doctor will tell you if and when you can restart your medications. He will also give you instructions about taking any new medications.

If you take blood thinners, be sure to talk to your doctor. He or she will tell you if and when to start taking those medications again. Make sure that you understand exactly what your doctor wants you to do.

Take pain medications exactly as directed. If the doctor gave you a prescription medication for pain, take it as prescribed.

If you are not taking a prescription pain medication, ask your doctor if you can take an over-the-counter medication.

Do not take two or more pain medications at the same time unless the doctor told you to. Many pain medicines have paracetamol, which is Panadol. Too much Panadol can be harmful.

If you think your pain medicine is making you sick to your stomach:

  • Take your medicine after meals (unless your doctor has told you not to).
  • Ask your doctor for a different pain medicine.

Adult Circumcision FAQ

The procedure itself usually takes about 15 minutes once the anaesthetic has kicked in. Generally, plan to be in our office for about 30 to 45 minutes.

We employ a highly effective local anaesthetic to ensure you are numb prior to proceeding.

In all cases, the minimum length of time will be 6 weeks before the wound heals.

For those with an office job, you may return in 2-3 days. For those who work physical jobs, we suggest you rest for 5-7 days.

After your first week of taking it really easy you may resume regular activities as long as you are pain free, including sports or going to the gym. You should avoid any activity that puts pressure on the penis or scrotum for at least 3 weeks (biking etc.). No contact sports for 6 – 8 weeks.

You should not have sex or masturbate for 6 weeks after getting circumcised as an adult.

Most adult circumcision patients find that there is minimal pain post operatively. Expect some mild discomfort after your procedure for a couple days just like with any surgery, after which there may be some discomfort during the first 2 weeks with nocturnal erections but they are generally mild and relieved with paracetamol or ibuprofen.
