Laser circumcision For Phimosis Treatment
Our team of super-specialty doctors are well trained to perform risk free circumcision procedure. Visit Intimate Clinic for laser-assisted treatment of Phimosis.
What is Phimosis?
Phimosis is the inability to retract the foreskin covering the head of the penis. A tight foreskin causes several issues with sexual intercourse and fertility. Treatments for phimosis vary depending on the child and severity of phimosis. Treatments may include: gentle daily manual retraction or circumcision. Intimate Clinic specializes in laser circumcision. This allows patient phenomenal recovery and also excellent cosmetic appearance. The treatment takes 15-20 minute.
Common indications for male circumcision are:
• Phimosis – a condition where the foreskin is not easily retracted (pulled back) from around the tip of the penis.
• Paraphimosis – This occurs when the foreskin can be retracted, but cannot be moved back into its normal position. This may require emergency medical attention.
• Balanitis –An inflammation of the glans penis is a common condition affecting an estimated 3-11% of all men at any age.
• UTI – Repeated infections of the urinary system due to abnormal urinary tracts or unhygienic conditions.
• Trauma – Isolated injuries to the foreskin such as Zipper injuries and foreskin tearing may require a circumcision to prevent scarring and adhesion formation.
• Prevention of sexually transmitted infections and penile cancer are also reasons for considering circumcision in men.
Laser treatment causes minimal pain as compared to traditional procedures. So, it is now considered the best treatment for phimosis. It can be done in both infants and adults. It is beneficial for patients who are hemophilic or have blood-related issues.At Intimate Clinic the entire surgery through laser technique takes around 15 to 20 minutes and involves a quicker recovery.
Circumcision can be done immediately with a newborn or a few days after the baby is born. For many people around the globe, circumcision is considered as a religious ritual. The same encompasses the complexity of the treatment and can be a concern for the family due to its tradition or a matter of personal hygiene.

We also use circumcision stapler. The disposable circumcision stapler is a sterile, hand-held, manual surgical instrument preloaded with non-bioabsorbable skin staples intended to be used to perform a circumcision. It is designed to cut the foreskin and apply a circular row(s) of staples proximal to the cut line. The stapler portion typically consists of a dome intended to be inserted under the foreskin over the glans penis and a circular cutting stapler mechanism with a manual lever intended to connect over the outside of the foreskin.
Stapler circumcision is reported to be associated with fewer complications than conventional or Shang Ring circumcision, especially with respect to severe oedema and wound dehiscence. These advantages of stapler circumcision may be due to the short operative time, minimal tissue injury and lack of electrocautery. It is associated with a shorter operative time, lower blood loss volume, and fewer postoperative complications than other methods of circumcision. Stapler circumcision is an easy and patient friendly device for performing male circumcision.
Frequently Asked Questions
HOW IS THE PROCEDURE DONE?
The circumcision surgery can be performed in 25 minutes while the patient is under local anaesthesia. After surgery, the patient will be under observation for 3 hours; and after that, the patient can walk home. The circumcision method can be completed in 15 minutes, hence faster than the surgical procedure. After a brief 15 minutes of recovery and follow up, the patient can go home.
ARE BLOOD TESTS REQUIRED BEFORE SURGERY?
Laboratory tests are required only for surgical circumcision. Circumcision doesn’t require any laboratory tests. A Doctor’s Consultation is mandatory before the surgical procedure. The consultation can coincide with your circumcision appointment, which in all may take about 30 minutes.
IS THERE AN AGE LIMIT FOR CIRCUMCISION TO BE PERFORMED?
No. Circumcision can be performed on a person from infants to older adults. It can be performed easily by the Stapler. Under 18 years of age, the patients require a guardian’s consent
HOW LONG WILL I TAKE TO RECOVER?
We assure you that you will be able to walk home after recovery and follow up with only slight discomfort, which will subside quickly. For the first week after surgery, we suggest that you keep your physical activities to a moderate level, including the amount of exercise and sexual intercourse. You can resume all physical activities after four to six weeks
WHEN CAN I HAVE SEX AFTER CIRCUMCISION?
Below instructions should be strictly followed for Sexual intercourse after Circumcision Surgery:
After surgery, strictly abstain from sexual intercourse for six weeks or forty-five days. After six weeks – sexual intercourse may be performed with the use of a condom for protecting the healing wound from infection. A condom is a must for every sexual intercourse that happens in the first month after surgery for complete healing. After one month, you can resume having sex without a condom.
WILL I BE AWAKE DURING THE PROCEDURE?
Yes. You will be awake. Under the effect of the local anaesthesia, the numbness will make it a painless procedure.

WHAT IS A "HIGH AND TIGHT" COSMETIC CIRCUMCISION?
when the penis is limp. “High and tight” is the most common desired look by most patients. That is provided under cosmetic circumcision.
WILL IT AFFECT MY SENSITIVITY?
No. A lot of patients have not reported any change in sexual sensitivity after the procedure. Some websites report an increase or decrease in sensitivity in the head of the penis, but again, we haven’t received any such complaints.
WHAT HAPPENS IF I GET AN ERECTION WHILE I AM STILL HEALING?
For the first few days after surgery, there is a likelihood to feel some discomfort or minor pain while you have an erection. It is normal to feel some discomfort, but there won’t be any bleeding. You will be given pain killers after the procedure to alleviate pain. As recommended, you must take medicines before going to bed, in case you have an erection while you are asleep.
