Adult Circumcision

Circumcisions are most often performed in adults for a medical reason, such as a tight foreskin (phimosis) that no longer retracts for lack of flexibility. Phimosis is most often the result of inflammation or recurrent infections of the foreskin (balanitis). Diabetic patients frequently have this problem. The foreskin can also become whitish, thick and hard.

Circumcisions are also performed for a sexual reasons, especially in young men, since they might have pain during erection (without any obvious pathology). Some men also have hypersensitivity of the glans, which makes sexual activities rather unpleasant; they have difficulty retracting the foreskin completely.

Finally, circumcisions can be performed for personal, aesthetic or religious reasons.

Why choose Les Cliniques Marois for an adult circumcision?
For the whole experience!

Dr. Marois' clinics are equipped with complete minor surgical rooms, with all the technology needed for urology. It conforms to the standards established by the Collège des Médecins du Québec.

Dr. Marois is a specialized surgeon urologist who masters various techniques of circumcision, in order to offer the most appropriate technique depending on the anatomy and complexity of the underlying problem (if applicable).

Dr. Marois is a meticulous surgeon who cares about aesthetics. For most men, the appearance of a circumcision is important.

All patients have telephone follow-up by one of our nurses in the days following the procedure.
How does the circumcision unfold?
Initially, an Ativan may be offered to anxious patients about 30 minutes before the start of surgery. Anesthesia is performed by a penile block. This involves the administration of an anesthetic to the skin around the base of the penis.

This is usually the most unpleasant part of the surgery. It lasts only a short time, about 15 seconds. The patient is then returned to the waiting room for 10 minutes to wait for the penile block to set in.

In a second step, the patient is placed on his back. We administer a Chlorexidine aseptic and sterile drapes are put in place. Anesthesia is verified. If necessary, we use extra Xylocaine. We may sometimes mark the skin. Then, a circular excision of the skin is performed with a scalpel and the bleeding is stopped using electrocautery.

Thereafter, we proceed to the excision of the preputial mucosa, and there is a second hemostasis with electrocauter. If necessary, we use more Xylocaine.

Subsequently, Dr Marois performs the excision of the prepuce mucosa, and there is a second hemostatic electrocauterisation. We attach the penile skin to the prepuce using absorbable sutures.
Sutures or glue?
What wound closure technology will be favoured: threads or glue?

Finally, an aesthetic closure is performed. It can be achieved with continuous resorbable threads. This technique leaves less scar marks than with the use ofseparated sutures of the standard technique.

The closure may also be performed by surgical glue without any apparent sutures. This closure technique is only possible if the edges of the closure can be perfectly aligned. Obviously, there will be no secondary scar marking as for skin closure!
