Infant circumcision, though it is often touted as the safest procedure for circumcising infants, is not completely free of controversy. Some doctors support the procedure and others oppose it. This is because they don’t believe it’s necessary to make such big changes to the male sexual organ. Other than these doctors, there are many opinions on infant circumcision. Are there risks? If so, how should parents address them? Here is a brief look at the pros and cons of infant circumcision.

One of the greatest advantages of infant circumcision, is that it is a permanent procedure. Once the procedure is complete, that’s it. There will be no more “surgeries” and the baby will not need to be re-circulated again or have stitches. This means less pain and scarring, and less risk of infection.

Infant circumcision has many cosmetic benefits as well as health benefits. The newborn’s foreskin is replaced with soft sensitive skin at the time of the procedure. This is usually done before the baby is discharged from the hospital. It is noticeable and parents feel proud of having done it. This is especially true when there is a wide range of colors to choose from: earth tones, light greens, light blues, light browns, and even yellows.

Another benefit of infant circumcision? It removes the foreskin. This is an added benefit. The foreskin can collect and retain urine which can lead to many complications. These complications include bleeding and infections as well as penile cancer. A retractable foreskin allows easier cleaning, eliminates the need to use creams or oils, and eliminates the risk of nerve damage, the source of most painful penile conditions. In addition, most of these complications heal themselves within a few days, although the healing time may vary by individual.

If you are thinking about infant circumcision, it is not a medical procedure. It is not performed only by neonatologists. A doctor who is experienced in newborn procedures, such as an obstetrician, is a good choice. You should ensure that the doctor has performed the procedure multiple times and that they follow the most exact instructions. You should also find out what pain relief medication the doctor has prescribed and whether the baby needs to take prescription medications. If the procedure fails, you should inquire about whether additional surgeries may be necessary.

Dr. Mcauliff has many detailed instructions on how to circumcise infants. You can reach him by email, phone, and in person at the clinic in Toronto, Canada. For a complete account, it is worth visiting his clinic and seeing him in person.

Newborn infant circumcision may require up to four hours. You may require more than one procedure, depending upon your child’s particular condition. For newborns with tight penile skin and floppy skin, you may need three procedures. Sometimes babies have warts, which may need to be removed by excision. Other infants will have normal skin, and won’t need excision.

As with all medical procedures, infant circumcision comes with potential risks and benefits. You should make a careful decision about whether or not this is something that you want to consider for your child. There are some benefits, such as the possibility of preventing painful infections. There are potential dangers, including possible complications and health benefits. It is important to do your research, consult with your doctor, and seek out the advice of your trusted healthcare provider.
