Quoting Kathy101:" Hi! I will be having a baby boy in the near future, and my husband and I want to have him circumcised. ... [snip!] ... in this manner? Or are they almost all done without removing enough skin now? Thanks for any help anyone can provide!! -Kathy"
hi Kathy, your post sounds the same as me and my husband feel..
My husband and me hav been studying alot on the internet about male circumcision. we did this for our own reason and now for our baby boy due next month. Our biggest frustration and sadness seems to be "common" or repeat comments on websites from parents and not really true comments also. probably the main ones are
Every circumcised penis is the same and requires no care.
we were told nothing or didnt think to look / check our sons penis after it healed.
The plastibell is best as it involves no foeskin cutting. the foreskin will fall off after 1 week like magic
We have seen many similar storys like yours about boys having loose circumcisions and the skin sticking or doctors not understanding or telling parents how much care a circumcision can be. I think its mainly due to how circumcisions are done now and the device used. basically "old style" circumcision was done with a gomco clamp or mogen clamp which normally removes all the foreskin leaving a very tight circumcision. now many doctors hav chosen to use the plastibell because it leaves more foreskin for the growing penis. but because of this alot of care and extra attention is needed to stop the leftover foreskin reattaching. This means pulling the penis skin back tightly to expose back to the circumcision scar and covering this whole area with vaseline at least 2 times everyday. this may need to continue until 2-3yrs old and the fat pad is gone. me and my husband both prefer a circumcised penis and for it to be done at birth. we pity and are sadnneded to see circumcised penises in boys and men deformed due to something as simple as pulling the skin back for your son after his circumcision.
During our time researching we hav found and collected alot of circumcised penis images from new born to adult showing good and bad or botched circumcisions and problems which are not easliy accessable or available.
Unfortunatly we cant sure them due to copyright but more so "naked children images". I understand this but wonder why this subject is so taboo in western culture.??
I saw my first newly circumcised penis and after healing( Besides my husband) when i started working in a daycare centre in Australia. I was surprised and interested how every boy especially the circumcised babys penises were all so different. My husband had never seen circumcised baby boys until we watched utube videos of baby boys bathing. He was also surprised but understood wot i had been trying to tell him. i feel and hope more truthful education about circumcision is given or available to new parents. Its too late for many boys but maybe other boys will have normal circumcised penises as parents learn.
Sorry for the long blog
... i hope if anyone wants to ask or take with me pls msg me.. thank u and good luck
