Male circumcision

Circumcision is a minor, short surgical procedure to remove the foreskin, which usually completely covers the glans.

Reasons for a circumcision

Circumcision can be performed for functional, aesthetic or religious reasons. In adulthood, the procedure is usually performed for medical or aesthetic reasons.

Medical reasons for circumcision
  • Tight foreskin (also called phimosis): phimosis can be congenital or can develop in adulthood as a result of recurrent infections or tearing of the foreskin.
  • Recurrent infections: Recurrent infections of the foreskin or head of the penis (balanitis) may require circumcision.
  • Too short foreskin (frenulum breve): Men with foreskin problems often have a frenulum that is too short. Depending on the severity of the problem, the foreskin may need to be lengthened (frenulotomy) or circumcised.
General motivations for circumcision
  • Hygiene: from a hygienic point of view, circumcision is beneficial because it prevents dead skin cells (smegma) from accumulating in the folds of the foreskin.
  • Cultural and religious reasons: in many cultures and religions, circumcision is performed on newborns or children.
  • Aesthetics: Some men find a circumcised penis more aesthetically pleasing than an uncircumcised one. Circumcision can help to achieve this aesthetic goal.
