adult circumcision arlington, texas, ft worth, metroplex, greater dallas northAdult circumcision is performed here at the Gentle Procedures Clinic location in Plano, Texas. No hospital visit or doctor’s referral is required.

Adult men come to our specialized circumcision clinic from all over the state of Texas, and beyond.

With our combination of local anesthetic, our quick surgical technique, and our use of skin glue, we provide what may be the most comfortable adult circumcision procedure available in the USA, or anywhere in the world.

The Adult Circumcision Procedure

Our clinic offers the advantage of being focused on circumcision procedures. Our internal processes are optimized to deliver the best possible care to men requiring a circumcision.

Dr. McAuliff uses a device that is similar to one that has long been used for infants.  Because of the use of this device, the procedure results in:

  • less bleeding (if any.)
  • more rapid healing.
  • greatly reduced chance of infection.
  • minimal discomfort during the procedure.
  • less cost to the patient.
  • one visit for the consultation and the procedure.
  • follow-up visits to ensure good outcome, then very little patient time.
  • if pre-procedure complications such as phimosis exist, the procedure can help eliminate them.

The details here provide an overview of how your surgery will be performed and what to expect afterwards. You will receive detailed written instructions for post-surgery care as well as consult one-on-one with Doctor Tim McAuliff. All your questions and concerns will be addressed before you decide to get circumcised.

The Week Before Your Procedure

Starting seven days before the procedure, you must entirely avoid taking any aspirin, NSAIDs, fish oil, or other anti-inflammatory medication. These thin the blood somewhat and increase the risk of bleeding. You can still take other pain relief medication like Tylenol.

You must entirely avoid aspirin and non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs such as Ibuprofen, Motrin, Aleve, Advil, Naproxen, Diclofenac, and others because they may thin the blood and cause unnecessary bleeding.

Tylenol (acetaminophen) is acceptable because it does not impact your risk of bleeding during and after surgery. Don’t take aspirin and the other anti-inflammatories for your own safety.

The doctor may not perform your procedure if you have taken these drugs recently. If you have a medical requirement to do so, please discuss with Dr. McAuliff prior to your appointment.

Preparing for Your Circumcision

Take it easy the night before your procedure. Do your best to have a good sleep the night before and follow your normal breakfast routine (except for minimizing coffee) so that you will feel your normal self. Some patients find it stressful to skip coffee, so if you are one of those people who really needs his coffee in the morning  – maybe just have one cup.

The goal is to minimize your stress, so have a cup of coffee if skipping it is will cause distress. If you have taken the prescribed Valium, we recommend that the patient have someone come with them to drive them home as well.

The morning of your circumcision we recommend that you avoid coffee and other caffeinated beverages or stimulants. It is best if you are both physically and mentally calm. You may bring your headphones and listen to your favorite relaxing music on your phone or other small music player during the surgery, if you wish.

The Surgery

The consultation and appointment will take about an hour.

The procedure itself is virtually painless.  A numbing cream is applied to the penis and scrotum to freeze the nerves in the tissue. The removal of the foreskin itself is typically removed in about 10 minutes.

We ask you to go eat lunch or get a cup of coffee and then come back in about an hour for a check to ensure there is no post-operative bleeding.

Follow-up is required 2 times during the 5 or 6 days following the procedure.

After the Procedure

Your penis may swell in the first 2 days. It is generally not very painful, and over-the-counter pain relievers are all you usually need.

Put ice or a cold pack on your groin for 10 to 20 minutes at a time. Try to do this every 1 to 2 hours for the first day. Put a thin cloth between the ice and your skin. Position your penis so that your underwear keeps it upright.

You will have a dressing over the head of your penis. Please follow the doctor’s directions about when to remove it. Wear snug fitting underwear that will hold the penis upright. This will help the swelling go down.

The day after the procedure, you can return to work and your normal routine depending on the type of work you do. Some men return to sedentary work as soon as 2 – 3 days after circumcision. You will need to wait longer before returning to physical work.

A detailed care sheet will be provided with specific instructions to follow after your operation. The information on this page gives you a general idea about how long it will take for you to recover, but each person recovers at a different pace. Follow the care instructions to heal as fast as possible.

Dr. McAuliff will address your specific case and your detailed questions.

Post Circumcision Activity & Care

Rest when you feel tired. Getting enough sleep will help you recover more quickly. Follow Dr. McAuliff’s instructions regarding showering and bathing. You may take baths after the bandage is removed.

You can return to work and normal activities, including driving, when you feel you are ready.

Avoid strenuous activities, such as bicycle riding, jogging, weight lifting, or aerobic exercise, for at least 2 days after the procedure. Two days after the procedure, you may return to these activities at about half strength for a couple more days and, if that activity is well tolerated, then back to normal.

What to eat after circumcision

You can eat your normal diet. If your stomach is upset, try bland, low-fat foods like plain rice, broiled chicken, toast, and yogurt. Drink plenty of fluids (unless your doctor tells you not to). There is no medical reason to change from your usual meals in the days after getting circumcised. You will likely prefer to eat at home at least for the first day or two to maximize your comfort.

Incision care

Remove any dressing when your doctor says it is okay, following his instructions. Wear underwear that is comfortable for you. After the first few days, some men continue to prefer a snug fit for support, while others prefer loose-fitting briefs. Do what feels best for you.

Ice and elevation

Put ice or a cold pack on your groin for 10 to 20 minutes at a time. Try to do this every 1 to 2 hours for the first day. Put a thin cloth between the ice and your skin. Position your penis so that your underwear keeps it upright.

Sex After Circumcision

Do not have intercourse or masturbate for 3 weeks, or until your doctor says it is okay. An occasional erection is not harmful as long as you leave it alone. Do not stimulate the penis.

Medications After Circumcision

Your doctor will tell you if and when you can restart your medications. He will also give you instructions about taking any new medications.

If you take blood thinners, such as warfarin (Coumadin), clopidogrel (Plavix), or aspirin, be sure to talk to your prescribing doctor. He or she will tell you if and when to start taking those medications again. Make sure that you understand exactly what your doctor wants you to do.

Take pain medications exactly as directed. If the doctor gave you a prescription medication for pain, take it as prescribed. If you are not taking a prescription pain medication, ask your doctor if you can take an over-the-counter medication.

Do not take two or more pain medications at the same time unless the doctor told you to. Many pain medicines have acetaminophen, which is Tylenol. Too much acetaminophen (Tylenol) can be harmful.
