Worried about phimosis which is not going away, am 24

Dr. Reed, Have serious phimosis.  Unable to retract my foreskin over my head.  I am 24 and worried.  What is the best ways to manage this and any alternatives?  I am very nervous.  Kent

Dear Kent,

Phimosis is a normal situation for newborns and by the time a man reaches 18 years of age, only 3% still have phimosis.  The others can retract fully without difficulty. The best treatment for phimosis is adult circumcision.  Others will mention steroid creams which may work temporarily but the phimotic tendency will return again and again.  With each stretching event the elastic fibers of your foreskin are replaced with scar fibers, which only when stretched and  broken reform with more scar.

If you wish to maintain semblance of a foreskin, you need at least to have the scarred portion removed.  Another procedure called a preputioplastycould be considered, but if you look at the medical illustrations, I can’t imagine you’ll be happy with that.

Please see before and after phimosis pictures on our web-site  adult-male-circumcision.com/photographic-examples/  Start at Phimosis Example: 10/1 – 10/3 and scroll down.

Here’s an article re: preputioplasty on children.  Note this was written in 2003 and from the UK  J R Soc Med. 2003 Sep; 96(9): 452–453.

23 boys (mean age 5 years; range 1–10) underwent preputioplasty as a day case under the care of two consultant urologists in the course of 3 years. The procedure was offered to those who had a problematic irretractable prepuce with a clear tight band and no evidence of balanitis xerotica obliterans (lichen planus et atrophicus). Under general anaesthesia, a dorsal longitudinal incision is made through the tight preputial band. After haemostasis, the wound is closed horizontally with a 4/0 Vicryl Rapide suture (Figure 1). Parents were asked to begin retraction of the foreskin the next day, placing 2% lidocaine gel behind it, and to continue for three days. The questionnaire (available from the authors) asked parents to address nine questions concerning the outcome and their satisfaction.

My circumcision doctor said I am too fussy, of course there’ll be a noticeable circumcision scar

Dr. Reed, How delicate a circumcision scar should I expect after wound healing?  Harry Dear Harry, Please understand adult circumcision wound healing can take up to 4 months, although you most likely can resume penetrating sex in about 8 weeks. Do ask your circumcision doctor if he/she has a web-site with photos of mature results…Continue Reading

Dr. who did my adult circumcision left a long suture inside. Can you remove it?

Dr. Reed, The doctor who did my adult circumcision closed the skin with a continuous suture which never dissolved.  Can still feel it and there is a disturbing circular indentation all the way around.  Neil Dear Neil, Please try to obtain a copy of the operative report, as this is an unusual way to close…Continue Reading

Had an adult circumcision with misalignment of the midline raphe

Dr. Reed,  Had an adult circumcision with misalignment of the midline raphe.  Can you correct this and would it be like going through a circumcision all over?  Burt Dear Burt, We see this not infrequently.  Malalignment of the midline raphe is fairly easy to correct.  We would try to stay in  the original circumcision line…Continue Reading

Will adult circumcision make my penis longer?

Dr. Reed,  Will adult circumcision make my penis longer?  If so is there a circumcision style that you would suggest. Henry Dear Henry, Unless you have an inflammatory phimosis which may restrict the length of your penis, an adult circumcision should have no effect on your erect or flaccid length.  That leaves you free in…Continue Reading

Penile length lost after my circumcision

Could you discuss the options?   Adrian Dear Adrian, Please see after and before circumcision pictures some posted below. Assuming you have not gained any weight during the interval, the most likely explanation is an overly…Continue Reading
