Laser Treatment for Circumcision

Laser circumcision is a surgery in which the doctor removes extra foreskin using a surgical laser from the penis. Laser usage in surgery offers a range of benefits, including lower bleeding, narrower injuries, and faster recovery. Adults may be circumcised if certain medical disorders are developed that create issues with the foreskin, such as phimosis, paraphimosis, balanitis, etc.


Dr. Narendra Chopde notes the entire medical history of the patient during diagnosis by asking a few questions about prior infections or penile injury. The doctor also questions whether there is an effect on the patient’s sex life. Then the doctor examines the penis and the foreskin physically.

The Doctor may additionally prescribe urinary testing or the presence of harmful bacteria via a foreskin swab.

Laser Circumcision Procedure:

The laser circumcision method is a minimally invasive, bleeding-free process, which facilitates recovery. The treatment takes 20 minutes and requires local, general or spinal anaesthesia.

The patient is taken for medical pre-operative testing and anaesthesia after reaching the hospital. In the case of a local anaesthetic, the patient might be discharged following the surgery on the same day. In these instances, the doctor recommends that the patient wait 3-5 hours after the procedure. The patient can then simply return home.

The laser cuts through the foreskin in laser circumcision. Due to this, during the operation, a patient does not have any bleeding or pain. The doctor will use a local anaesthetic in laser circumcision to numb the tissue, wait for it to take effect, and then forceps are used to grasp the foreskin and keep it in place. She stretches it over the head of the penis and leads a small operating laser along to make a clean incision. Lasers cauterise while they are cutting, and the patient should experience minimal bleeding. After the operation, a few dissolvable sutures are needed to keep the tissue in place while it heals.

General anaesthesia for circumcision is also available, however, it is generally not recommended as it has some risks. If the patient requires it for another operation, the physician may propose concurrent circumcision, such as if a urologist is doing surgery in the genital area.

The patient would experience pain, redness and sorrow after laser circumcision. The doctor may give mild pain treatment to make the patient comfortable, and anti-inflammatory medicines are also advised to reduce swelling. If the patient has significant swelling, it can be reduced by applying ice to the groin. The doctor does not often have to view the incision again but may advise it if problems are anticipated. For example, if the patient reports changes in skin colour or a weird discharge, this might be proof of an infection.

Recovery After Laser Circumcision Surgery:

In less than 30 minutes your laser circumcision is complete and you are discharged from the hospital that same day. You will have no pain or discomfort. The urologist will also prescribe antibiotics and pain medicines for infection prevention and pain and discomfort management. You should take all of your medications recommended and follow the doctor’s recommendations for a smooth recovery.

Mild swelling or redness is normal and resolves in 1 to 2 days following the laser circumcision. You should tell your doctor if these symptoms continue. Your surgeon is going to advise you not to have sex until you fully heal, for 3 – 4 weeks following circumcision. Also, avoid exercising for 7-10 days following the surgery. On average, patients will recover fully within 3 to 4 weeks.
