Frequently Asked Questions
If performed by an experienced doctor, there is minimal risk. One to three per cent of circumcisions can result in minor complications such as bleeding or infection, though this can usually be managed by your doctor. Issues such as scarring or larger consequences are incredibly rare. To ensure your safety, we schedule a follow-up shortly after the procedure and your doctor will be on call in case you have concerns.
That being said, circumcision is still a surgery. You should weigh your options and consult with a specialist to ensure that you are making the right choice.
Babies can recover from the procedure within 7-10 days. Older boys and adults typically take longer (2-3 weeks), but should wait 4 weeks before engaging in physical exercise and 6 weeks before engaging in sexual activity. Your doctor will be able to better outline your recovery timeline during your appointment and follow-up.
