Used with permission from DrMomma.orgThese comparison photos will give you some idea of what to expect from circumcision. In the first pair of images, the one on the left is a normal, healthy infant penis and on the right, a circumcised penis about a week after the surgery.

Used with permission from DrMomma.orgIn the second pair, the left image shows an adult intact penis with foreskin pulled back and the supple head of the penis (glans) exposed. The image on the right is of a circumcised adult. Note the calloused texture of the glans, called keratinization, the result of rubbing daily on clothing.1
