Silicon Valley Urologist – Dr. Jonathan C Hu

Adult Circumcision

Only if you don't have insurance (call for pricing if you have insurance)

An Elective cosmetic procedure

It’s important to recognize that having a retractable foreskin on the penis is entirely normal and a sign of good health. There is no medical necessity to remove the foreskin, and your penis is perfectly healthy as it is. The prevailing trend in the medical community has shifted away from routine circumcision in babies, emphasizing the importance of maintaining the natural state of the foreskin for most men.

Pricing

Hospital Outpatient Setting: When performed in a hospital outpatient setting, the cost is usually higher due to the additional facilities and resources involved. This may include the use of an operating room, anesthesia, medical staff, and follow-up care. Costs can vary widely, but they often range to several thousand dollars.

Office Setting: Circumcision performed in a urologist’s office may cost less compared to a hospital outpatient setting. In-office procedures might entail fewer overhead expenses, potentially resulting in a more cost-effective option. Generally, the price range could be several hundred to a few thousand dollars.

Frequently Asked Questions

Is circumcision necessary for me?

If the foreskin remains free from conditions such as infection, inflammation, or scarring (phimosis), surgical removal may not be deemed necessary.

Is there any pain during or after the procedure?

The vast majority of our patients have reported experiencing minimal discomfort throughout the procedure, largely attributable to the effective utilization of various local anesthetics, which effectively desensitize the area. General anesthesia is not employed; however, for individuals experiencing pre-procedural anxiety, we offer the option of a sedative.Following the procedure, patients may encounter mild to moderate discomfort once the effects of anesthesia subside. To address this, we administer suitable medications prior to the patient's discharge from the clinic.

Can I go to work the next day?

While our general recommendation is to allow for two days of rest post-procedure, certain patients may find themselves sufficiently comfortable to resume work on the day of the operation. However, this decision may hinge upon the nature of one's employment responsibilities. If your occupation entails physical exertion or heavy lifting, we advise consulting with your employer regarding the necessity for time off. We are equipped to furnish any requisite documentation to support such requests.

Will the procedure impact the size or sensitivity of my penis?

No, the removal of the foreskin will not alter the size of the penis, whether erect or flaccid. Moreover the majority of nerve endings are concentrated in the penile head.

How long is the recovery?

After our procedures performed under local anesthesia, patients usually feel comfortable enough to walk and, in many cases, can resume driving immediately afterward. Additionally, we provide prescribed medications to manage any discomfort or erections on your journey home.Post-procedure, patients can anticipate a clean and aesthetically pleasing result, with a seamless line where the foreskin was. Optimal healing is important, so we recommend abstaining from sexual activity for up to 6 weeks, ensuring adequate time for complete healing. We understand the importance of a smooth recovery period, and our team is here to guide and support you every step of the way.

Do you do frenulectomies?

A frenulectomy involves the removal of the frenulum, the skin ridge connecting the underside of the penis head to the shaft. Often performed alongside circumcision, this procedure is opted for by many patients seeking an enhanced aesthetic appearance, typically incurring an additional fee.
