Dear Dr. Reed, Have phimosis. Will this be cured with a circumcision? I am 32 years old and have had difficulty retracting my foreskin for several years. Sometmes I swab with a Q-tip[ but it’s a nuisance.
Yes, a properly performed circumcsiion will be a one step-solution. You may think of phimosis as a tight ring on the end of your foreskin, but the scarred area extends back a lot further toward the rim or corona. All of that has to be excised as well lest a contraction ring (paraphimosis) like a tourniquet.will produce distal and unsafe swelling of your shaft.

Please look at photographic examples on our web-site http://penisdoctor.com/adult-circumcision click on photographic examples.
Having done over 8000 circumcisions since the Reed Centre – Miami opened its doors, anticipate you’ll be shown every courtesy and skillful care.
