Adult Circumcision, Right Here in Sydney

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), inflammation (balanitis), and infection, 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.

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 performs circumcision for men of all ages.

Adult Circumcision Costs in NSW – Medicare Coverage?

The public health insurance program – Medicare – partially covers adult circumcision only in cases where the procedure can be classified as medically necessary for the man. This means that the great majority of adult circumcisions performed at our NSW adult circumcision clinic are paid for directly by the patient.

You can consult with your private health insurer to determine if any coverage may be available in your case, if you have a private health plan.

If you would like more detail on adult circumcision costs, please use the Circumcision Cost Confirmation form to send us your inquiry and we will reply fast with the detail you require.

Getting Circumcised at Your Age

We are often asked; “Am I too old to get circumcised?” and the answer is pretty much always “no”. Men and youth of all ages have the surgery in our adult circumcision clinic. You can also find additional information regarding circumcision for babies, older boys and teens on dedicated pages on this website.

The most common age range for adult circumcision is 18 – 50 years old, but the procedure is regularly performed on a larger age range as requested for medical and personal reasons. 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 in Australia, Canada and the United States.

If you are travelling interstate or from overseas it is best to plan to stay 2 days in Sydney to be on the safe side.

The Sydney Adult Circumcision Procedure

Our clinic offers the advantage of being focused on circumcision procedures. Our internal processes are optimized to deliver a high quality of care to men requiring a circumcision.

The details below 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 Mohammad Sharier.

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.

Dr. Sharier will be reachable anytime in the days following your adult circumcision procedure. You will have his direct personal phone number.

The surgical procedure followed for the circumcision itself largely depends on the patient’s clinical problem which of the three methods offered by Gentle Procedures Sydney is employed. The three methods are the Pollock Technique™, the use of a Stapler Device, and the Traditional Dorsal Slit and Sleeve Resection Surgical Technique.

The morning of your circumcision we recommend that you avoid coffee and other caffeinated beverages or stimulants.

The goal is to minimize your stress, so have a cup of coffee if skipping will cause distress. You cannot drive for at least 6-8 hours post procedures. So our advice is to take a taxi, catch a train, or get picked up by family or friends after the procedure.

At Gentle Procedures Clinic, we tailor the circumcision technique to the individual, considering factors like age, body mass index, orientation of genitalia, medical issues, and the nature of any chronic conditions. Dr. Sharier will consult with you in detail about your medical history and the techniques he would use to ensure the best outcome in terms of healing time, cosmetic result, and patient satisfaction. Depending on these factors, Dr. Sharier may use the Pollock Technique™, a stapler device, or traditional surgical techniques.

 This method uses a combination of local anesthetic and quick surgical technique, with the mogen clamp and use of skin glue.  Following the procedure, the area is bandaged to achieve homeostasis.

Follow-up is required on day two for dressing changes and then a week later etc.

With the skin glue closure method, we have been able to obtain improved cosmetic outcomes without suture track marks in the mucosa and skin. In addition, glue closure is faster than sutures.

Adult circumcision procedures with the Pollock Technique™ can offer good results with limited discomfort.

This procedure lasts 15-20 minutes and promotes faster healing, less blood loss, and a lower risk of post surgical complications. There is however the risk of discomfort or complications from the clamps.

This method of circumcision employs devices such as the CircCurer, ZSR, or Touchstone for a quick and a less painful procedure.
After applying local anesthesia, the foreskin is placed in the device which then simultaneously cuts the foreskin and applies staples to close the wound.
This procedure also lasts 15-20 minutes and promotes faster healing, less blood loss, and a lower risk of post surgical complications.
However, there is a risk of the possible need to remove the staples should they not fall off naturally within 2-4 weeks. Other potential complications include discomfort from the staples as well as potential issues arising from an incorrect placement of the stapler device.

This is a more traditional type of circumcision involving the use of a scalpel. The foreskin is held in place and separated from the glans with artery forceps. A slit is then made in the foreskin and it is pulled back to the desired location. A  circumferential incision is made around the shaft as far back as the scar line is to be placed, usually distal to the corona. A second circumferential incision follows, with a longitudinal cut between them to remove the strip of skin. The raw edges are then sutured.

Adult Circumcision FAQ

The procedure itself usually takes about 15 minutes once the anesthetic has kicked in. Generally, plan to be in our office for about 1.5 hours.
We employ a highly effective local anesthetic to ensure you are numb prior to proceeding.
In all cases, the minimum length of time will be 6 weeks before the wound heals.
For those with an office job, you may return in 2-3 days. For those who work physical jobs, we suggest you rest for 5-7 days.
After your first week of taking it really easy you may resume regular activities as long as you are pain free, including sports or going to the gym. You should avoid any activity that puts pressure on the penis or scrotum for at least 3 weeks (biking etc.). No contact sports for 6 – 8 weeks.
You should not have sex or masturbate for 6 weeks after getting circumcised as an adult.

Most adult circumcision patients find that there is minimal pain post operatively. Expect some mild discomfort after your procedure for a couple days just like with any surgery, after which there may be some discomfort during the first 2 weeks with nocturnal erections but they are generally mild.

After the Procedure

Your penis will be swollen for the first few weeks. It is generally not very painful, and simple 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 when you feel ready to.

Dr Sharier advises taking 1-2 weeks off for office/sedentary work and 2-3 weeks for manual/physical work. Some men return to sedentary work as soon as 3 – 4 days after circumcision.

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. Sharier will address your specific case and your detailed questions

Post Circumcision Rest – Activities to Avoid

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 if you wish.

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. 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.

Incision care

Remove any dressing when your doctor says it is okay. Do this by soaking it off in a warm bath. 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 if you are uncomfortable in first 24 hours. Generally most patients tolerate the first 24 hours post procedure very well with only over the counter Panadol as needed. Position your penis so that your underwear keeps it upright.

Sex after circumcision

Do not have intercourse or masturbate for 6 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.

Care 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, or aspirin, be sure to talk to your doctor. Dr Sharier 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 paracetamol, which is Panadol. Too much Panadol 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).
  • Ask your doctor for a different pain medicine.
