Circumcision removes the foreskin from a male’s penis. It often takes place in infancy, but circumcision is also popular with older males.
Many men who weren’t circumcised as children decide they would like to undergo circumcision in adulthood for several reasons.
You might simply like how a circumcised penis looks or want to make it easier to keep your penis clean and prevent infections. Some people might prefer to have a partner who’s circumcised.
There’s also evidence that adult circumcision could protect female partners from infection with the sexually transmitted disease (STD) human papillomavirus (HPV), certain strains of which cause cervical cancer.
Whatever your reasons for wanting an adult circumcision, Lone Star Urology can help.
Circumcision is a more straightforward procedure in an infant. However, adult circumcision is still a very safe operation as long as you go to someone who specializes in performing it in adults, like Dr. Aleman.
Newborn and infant circumcision is something many doctors have experience in, but the procedure is more complex in teens and adult men. Therefore, even if your primary care provider has experience with circumcising babies, it’s best for adults to seek expert treatment at Lone Star Urology.
