Circumcision is a simple surgical procedure that removes the foreskin – a sleeve of skin covering the tip of the penis. Dr Alam of AMSC offers this surgical procedure to men in his professional surgical suites. Dr Alam has operated on numerous males of all ages however, in order to make an informed decision about male circumcision, make an appointment at AMSC to discuss your circumstances so you can make a careful, considered decision. AMSC will ensure you are treated with great care and professionalism.
If an uncircumcised man has a problem with his foreskin (the loose skin that covers the end of the penis) such that it is very tightly attached to the undersurface of the glans of the penis, it can cause difficulty in movement of the skin as well as pain during erections. A foreskin that is tight enough to restrict movement is commonly known as a frenulum breve. This is remedied by a procedure called a frenuloplasty, where the tightness and restriction is removed.
While circumcision helps this condition, frenuloplasty is a specialised technique that treats the condition while preserving the foreskin. After a few weeks and the incision healed, the patient will experience reduced or no pain with erections, and will experience an increase in the range of motion for the penile skin. After the short surgery, there will be some discomfort, but very little severe pain.
Patients return home within two hours of the procedure and while there will be several sutures involved in the procedure, they usually dissolve or drop out within 3-4 weeks of the procedure.
The wound may be washed 48 hours after the surgery. Soreness may be experienced for a few weeks, but after two to three weeks a normal level of activity should be expected, with sexual activity possible within four to six weeks. Complications are rare, and are usually no more serious than a slight bleeding around the area of the incision.

Penoscrotal webbing can occur as a result of circumcision, whereby the underside of the penis, where is attaches to the scrotum, is lifted up. This webbing can make the penis look much shorter than its actual length and can cause distress and anxiety in some males. At AMSC, patients can undertake a minor surgical procedure to rectify this issue in their professional surgical suites located in Brisbane.
