Adult Circumcision

At South Side Circumcision Clinic, we treat patients of all ages. Our experienced doctors know how to minimise your discomfort during the procedure and ensure that your circumcision is performed to the highest standard.

It can be a tough decision, deciding whether or not you wish to be circumcised. We’re here to help you through the process and give you the support and guidance you need. Looking for adult circumcision Adelaide?

Why get circumcised now?

If you were not circumcised as an infant, then chances are that you are considering the procedure due to medical reasons. In certain cases, your GP may recommend getting a circumcision to treat conditions such as:
  • Paraphimosis – This is when the foreskin gets stuck and can no longer be pulled over the head of the penis. Eventually, this may stop the flow of blood to the tip and is thus considered a health emergency.
  • Phimosis – This is when your foreskin is too tight and cannot be fully retracted, or retracted painfully.
  • Balanitis – This refers to inflammation of the foreskin or head of the penis. Though this is typically a minor issue that can be treated with antibiotics, frequent or severe infection may necessitate circumcision.

Circumcision is also known to decrease the chances of penile cancer (and cervical cancer in female partners), as well as the risk of contracting urinary tract infections and sexually transmitted infections

Will my circumcision hurt?

Although adult patients experience more discomfort/pain than our infant patients, we have refined our procedure to minimise any pain. We will use a local anaesthetic to numb the area and a general anaesthetic if needed. Your doctor may also be able to prescribe additional painkillers to help with pain management.

The process

Getting an adult circumcision with us is simple. We apply an EMLA cream to numb the penis area around 30 minutes before the procedure. The circumcision itself takes no more than 20 minutes, unless more stitching is needed. 

After that, all you have to do is wait for another 30 minutes in the sitting area and you’ll be good to go!
