Preparation for Adult Circumcision, Frenuloplasty or Preputioplasty

Pubic Hair

There is no need to completely shave your pubic hair, but it is desirable to trim it fairly short. This aids asepsis (prevent infection) during the operation and prevents hairs becoming painfully trapped in the bandaging afterwards. Trim your pubic hair a few days in advance of the operation to allow time for the cut ends to soften again.

Sex

There will be a period of up to six weeks after circumcision when you will not be able to indulge in sex. It is desirable therefore that you reduce your desires beforehand. On the morning of the operation either have sex with your partner or masturbate to climax.

Alcohol

Do not take any alcohol, whether with or without a meal, prior to the circumcision as it can dehydrate you and may reduce the effectiveness of the local anaesthetic.

Aspirin and blood thinning medicine

Do not take Aspirin or any blood thinning medicine after your doctor (GP) advice since these thin the blood and have an anti-clotting action which can increase bleeding from a wound after the circumcision.

Hygiene

On the morning of the circumcision ensure that you take a good bath or shower and pay particular attention to your genitals. Retract your foreskin as far as you can and clean well under it. Immediately before the time of the operation empty your bladder.

Underwear

Adult men after the circumcision should bring a pair of tight fitting briefs to wear afterwards which will keep the surgical dressing in place. Continue to wear these at home until the swelling and soreness has eased.

Eat and Drinks

If you are having a local anaesthetic, eat and drink as per normal. Keep your fluids going as this will ensure that you are well hydrated. Vitamin E and C will promote healing.

Smoking

If you smoke, then stop as this interferes with the healing of the wound. Smoking can slow this down and your recovery in general so stop smoking before your surgery.

 Time off from work

Arrange time off work from 2-7 days.
