Wishing to recreate a pigmented circumcision scar

Dr. Reed, Seeking a pigmented circumcision band.  Had an adult cosmetic circumcision and my critique is that the junction between the inner and outer skin is too perfect.  Would like to know if there is some way you can reproduce the wider pigmented band you sometimes see with new-born circumcisions?


Dear Pat,

The easiest way I know is to have a technician who does micro-pigmentation (medical tattoo) do a band width and color to your liking.

There are about 130 shades of skin colors available.  If you need further help, you can call our office for some local recommendations.  However, most plastic surgeons in any major city are familiar the technicians who do this work.  Please provide a followup and try to get some before and after photos.  Would like to see how your adult circumcision revision turned out.
