Adolescent Circumcision

Chesapeake Urology offers circumcision for older children and adolescents. Whether circumcision is done either for cultural reasons or preference, or for medical indications including pathologic phimosis, it is a brief outpatient plastic surgical procedure performed under anesthesia.

If you would like to inquire about a circumcision for an older child or adolescent, please schedule an office consultation with Chesapeake Urology for Children.

Caring for the Circumcised Penis

Follow these steps post-circumcision:

  • Apply ointment, such as A&D or Vaseline, to the penis several times a day for the first three weeks following the procedure.
  • Keep the area dry.
  • Watch for any signs of infection such as a green/white drainage and redness extending from the shaft of the penis up on to the stomach wall.
  • Call your pediatrician or your surgeon immediately if you notice any sign of infection.
