Circumcision Surgery for Adults
Adult 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.
Here is a summary below of the adult circumcision process. In addition to the steps below, adult circumcision clients will have an initial consultation in our clinic.
Please contact us today if you would like a consultation and please read on for detail on what will happen on the day of your eventual procedure:
After receiving local anesthetic to the genital area, the circumcision is performed in a completely painless manner.
After the procedure, you will be asked to leave the clinic briefly, to eat lunch or get a cup of coffee, then return for a quick post-procedure checkup.
Follow-up is required 2 times during the next week for dressing changes, etc.
Somebody with sedentary work can return to their job within 48 hours. Surgery and follow-up visits are done in the comfort and privacy of our circumcision clinic.
You will have access to Dr. McAuliff’s 24 hour phone to answer any concerns.
Please go ahead and call 469-931-0684 for an appointment with Dr. McAuliff if you are considering getting circumcised as an adult.
There are a number of reasons why men may choose to get circumcised at an adult age. Some require circumcision as a cure for conditions like phimosis (an overly tight foreskin) while others choose circumcision for cosmetic and personal reasons. Whatever the reason for your choice to have circumcision later in life, we will be pleased to consult with you and schedule a surgery at your convenience.
With our skin glue closure method, in addition to the standard suture technique, we are able to obtain an improved cosmetic outcome without the typical multiple suture track marks in the skin. Adult circumcision procedures in our clinic offer optimal results with the least discomfort.
For more information, or to schedule to speak with our doctor, please contact us today. Appointments are generally available within a short time and no referral is required. Our experienced doctor specializes in circumcision for men of all ages.
Getting Circumcised at Any Age
We are often asked; “Am I too old to get circumcised?” and the answer is pretty much always “no”. Men and teens have the surgery in our adult circumcision clinic. You can also find additional information regarding circumcision for babies on a dedicated page on our site.
We perform circumcisions on newborns, and toddlers up to age two. Boys over nine, teens and men of any age are excellent candidates for the procedure.
The most common age range for adult circumcision is 18 – 40 years old, but the procedure is regularly performed on a much larger age range as requested for medical and personal reasons. We have circumcised men aged in their seventies.
The medical team at our clinic are experts at circumcising men of all ages, and we have collectively performed over 100,000 circumcision procedures in our affiliated clinics around the world. Gentle Procedures Clinics deliver premium circumcision care from coast to coast.
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.
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.
Our team is available after surgery as required to answer your questions and to react quickly in the unlikely event that there are any problems. After post-procedural observation you will go rest, with quick access to us for any concerns.
Dr. McAuliff will be reachable anytime in the days following your adult circumcision procedure. You will have his direct personal phone number.
The Week Before Your Procedure
Starting seven days before the procedure, do not take any aspirin, ibuprofen, 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.
Our 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. 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. Bring your headphones and listen to your favorite relaxing music on your phone or other small music player during the surgery.
The procedure and consultation will take about an hour. 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.
CIRCUMCISION APPOINTMENT REQUEST
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.
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.
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.
Rest when you feel tired. Getting enough sleep will help you recover fast. You may shower when you no longer have a bandage on your penis. Pat the cut (incision) dry. You may also take short baths after the bandage is removed.
Avoid strenuous activities, such as bicycle riding, jogging, weight lifting, or aerobic exercise, for 4 weeks or until your doctor says it is okay. You can return to work and normal activities, including driving, when you are comfortable doing them.
What to eat after circumcision as an adult.
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.
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 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.
If you think your pain medicine is making you sick to your stomach:
Take your medicine after meals (unless your doctor has told you not to).
