SRS miami MTF GRS Adult Circumcision Stories

David's Journal After careful consideration and many years of research, I decided to contact Dr. Harold Reed in Florida.  I visited this website and filled out the online questionnaire.  I immediately received a pleasant response from the doctor himself answering some of my questions and telling me what things I should consider.  After so many years on CIRCLIST, I had already considered each item he mentioned, but none the less, it was good of him to give me a bit of homework before my planned visit.  I called his office and spoke to Anne to make the appointment in 2 months time.

Finding Someone to Perform Your Circumcision "I got a very good looking, very low and tight cut. (Shaft skin right up behind the glands. The skin is smooth when flaccid and very tight when erect.) He used a double set of sutures to hold everything together.  He'll do whatever style you suggest."  Read more...

Circumcision - The Procedure

Dorsal Slit Technique

This technique is preferred for use in patients with phimosis or paraphimosis. In the patient presenting with acute paraphimosis, gentle, steady pressure on the prepuce decreases the swelling. The physician may then reduce the paraphimosis by pushing on the glans with the thumbs and pulling on the foreskin with the fingers. If this step is unsuccessful, the dorsal slit can be performed to relieve the pain, and the remainder of the circumcision can be performed at a later time.

To perform the dorsal slit, the physician needs to identify the corona of the glans and determine the extent of the dorsal slit. This is the most important step in removing the correct amount of prepuce. The slit should extend from the meatal opening 75 percent of the distance to the corona. Counter-traction on the edges of the foreskin while the physician makes the slit with scissors is helpful. The preputial skin should then be held perpendicular from the shaft of the penis and excised at its base with scissors. Large superficial veins are then ligated.

The frenulum is reapproximated first, as it can be a site of problematic bleeding. We prefer to use a subcutaneous "U" stitch for good cosmesis and to help avoid bleeding. The cut edges of the foreskin are closed with multiple simple interrupted stitches using 4-0 or 5-0 absorbable sutures (chromic: Dexon or Vicryl) spaced evenly every 4 to 7 mm. Excess bleeding is controlled with direct pressure and electrocautery. A sterile dressing of petroleum gauze can then be applied over the sutures.
