Adult Circumcision Procedure in St. George, UT
Circumcision is the surgical removal of the foreskin covering the tip of the penis. It is most commonly performed on infants; however, some adults choose to have the procedure for religious, cultural, cosmetic, personal hygiene, or medical reasons.
If circumcision would alleviate a medical problem, for example problems retracting the foreskin, insurance may cover the procedure. When a medical problem isnít present, the procedure is considered elective. Most insurances do not cover the cost of an elective adult circumcision, although each plan is different.
Testing and Treatment
Adult circumcision is more complicated than infant circumcision, but it is still considered a minor surgical procedure.
The procedure is performed in an out-patient surgery center while the patient is under general anesthesia (completely asleep). The man will leave the surgery center the same day as the operation. Most men return to work after a week and return to sex after 4-6 weeks, when the area has fully healed.
