Dr. Reed, I live in the Miami area and have been following your web-site and blogs on adult-male-circumcision.com. What are the medical reasons for circumcision and does this limit circumcision style options.? Trying to see if my insurance company will help pay.
Among the more common reasons include phimosis or inability to easily retract your foreskin for daily hygiene, chronic inflammation of the foreskin or glans (head), and recurrent tears, a short tight frenulum which causes the head of the penis to tilt down during erections (the SST deforming) also called “frenulum breve.” Correction of that would involve removal of the frenulum which most men opt for when being circumcised. If the foreskin is too tight, all constrictive tissue has to be removed, which means you may not necessarily have a high circumciosion with preservation of most of your foreskin’s inner tissue. Usually this does not effect looseness too much.
Hoping that is of help,
Harold M. Reed, M.D.
