Dr. Roland Sing – Mississauga Urologist & Surgeon
Circumcision revision is a surgical procedure that addresses undesirable outcomes from a patient’s original circumcision. At Gentle Procedures Toronto clinics in North York and Mississauga, the circumcision revision procedure can be done under local anesthetic right in our procedure rooms, often without stitches, using our unique skin glue closure.
The first step is to consult with the doctor to review your options. After an assessment of the existing circumcision, Dr. Sing will recommend a revision procedure if appropriate. You can call us at 888-950-2472 to schedule your consultation, or go ahead and use the Appointment Request Form is you prefer.
For infants, boys, teens and men, we offer a fast and effective response to issues related to a previous circumcision from another facility.
What is Circumcision Revision?
Circumcision revision is a procedure that responds to what is called an “incomplete circumcision.” When too little foreskin is removed during the initial circumcision, the appearance of the penis is affected.
The great majority of circumcisions are performed without complication. However, if you have concerns about foreskin remaining on the penis after circumcision, it’s recommended the condition be assessed and addressed as soon possible. If untreated, the issue can develop into medical problems and the excess foreskin left on the penis will minimize the benefits circumcision offers.
Circumcision revision is a corrective procedure we offer in at our GTA clinics for males of all ages. Call to schedule an appointment at 888-950-2472. The first appointment will be a consultation with Dr Sing – one of Toronto’s experienced urological surgeons.
At Gentle Procedures Clinics in the GTA, we provide circumcision revisions for boys, teens, and men of all ages, from infants to adults. We’re equipped to serve patients who may desire or require circumcision revision with minimal stress or discomfort.
Most commonly, circumcision revision is related to cosmetic concerns from the original procedure. The appearance of the penis is often of concern for parents with religious or cultural motivations. The medical benefits of a complete circumcision, such as a reduction in urinary tract infections, lower STD risk, etc., may also be affected. Boys and men of all ages are candidates for a circumcision revision procedure if these issues are present.
In the case of neonatal circumcision, it’s suggested that any issues from the original procedure be addressed as soon as possible. For older boys and men, it’s never too late to correct an issue with an imperfect circumcision.
Not Enough Foreskin Removed
When not enough of the foreskin is removed during the original circumcision, it results in a condition known as redundant foreskin. It is also considered the outcome of an “incomplete circumcision.” When the penis is flaccid, the foreskin will still cover the glans, so the organ appears as if it is uncircumcised.
For families who chose circumcision this defeats the purpose of the original procedure. Plus, though the foreskin is not entirely removed, it is shortened. This can lead to discomfort, rubbing and a build-up of scar tissue, with a heightened risk of phimosis as your child grows.
Some parents assume as their child develops physically, the problem will resolve itself. Unfortunately, this is not the case. It is highly recommended that this issue be addressed as soon as possible.
Too Much Foreskin Removed
This is a very rare occurrence in North American circumcision procedures, though first-time parents may harbor worries. Dr. Sing is sensitive to those concerns, so don’t hesitate to ask questions. If you need to correct a procedure that was done elsewhere, Gentle Procedures is here to help with a safe and gentle circumcision revision in our Toronto clinics.
