After the appointment for a treatment is confirmed, you will receive information about the circumcision by e-mail. It contains everything you need to know about the circumcision and the care after, so please read this information carefully.
We have briefly summarized below what you should do before you visit our clinic:
When you arrive at the clinic we hand out administrative forms such as the declaration of the informed consent for the circumcision. After the payment is completed an intake interview follows.
During this interview we ask questions about your health and you receive information about the method and the care before, during and after the circumcision, including the possible complications (even though the chances are small). Please ask any questions and if everything is clear, the informed consent form must be signed.
The local anesthetic is given through small injections at the base of the penis. The penis will be completely numb after a few minutes. The circumcision will take place after the anesthesia is checked. This will approximately take 15 to 20 minutes.
In adults, the classic method is used with sutures. This ensures that you see immediate results after the circumcision and that you no longer have to return for a follow-up. The classic method applied in our clinic is a minimally invasive method, ensuring that the safety is guaranteed and the blood loss kept to a minimum.
For the healing of the wound, it is important to follow the aftercare instructions carefully. However, we understand that you cannot remember everything on such an exciting day. All follow-up instructions are included on paper. This allows you to read everything at home. If you still have questions you can always contact BesnijdenisPunt during office hours through the general number. In case of emergency, you can always reach us 24/7 through the emergency number. Generally, a follow-up does not take place. However, if you prefer to have a follow-up, you can make an appointment by calling or e-mailing us.
A circumcision is basically a safe and minor surgical procedure, however, as with any surgical procedure, complications can occur even though this is rare. In the informed consent form all complications are described and during the interview these are pointed out again.
Listed below are the possible (and also very rare) complications:
