The phimosis op


What is the procedure of phimosis surgery?

Phimosis surgery is performed under anesthesia of the local nerves of the penis.

Different techniques of phimosis surgery (circumcision):

Complete circumcision (complete circumcision)

In this procedure, the foreskin is completely removed and the glans is completely exposed.
First, the foreskin is detached from the underlying skin of the glans and the possibly too short foreskin ligament (frenulum) is cut.
The foreskin is incised at the back of the penis and cut off at the junction of the penile shaft and glans. The outer and inner foreskin are then sutured.

Sparing circumcision (subtotal circumcision)

This form of phimosis surgery preserves part of the foreskin, since the whole foreskin is not removed.

What happens after phimosis surgery?

If necessary, the doctor will apply a bandage, which should be checked and renewed in the days following surgery.
The patient receives tips on daily wound care and dressing changes. As a rule, self-dissolving suture material is used so that no sutures need to be removed. A check-up is recommended after 3-4 months.
