Circumcision Not Recommended

Amputating the foreskin is not required for adhesions. Adhesions are the result of injury, and they are a common complication of circumcision. See Phimosis.

There is much confusion, even among trained medical professionals, between true adhesions (abnormal) and attachment (normal). The foreskin is initially attached to the glans before birth and slowly separates in the years following birth.

Adhesions occur only when raw foreskin tissue and raw glans tissue join together following an injury, such as a forced foreskin retraction, commonly done or recommended by naïve medical professionals. Adhesions often resolve by themselves. Treatment for adhesions includes gently retracting the foreskin, or having a plastic surgeon separate the adhesion. Both have the advantage of retaining the foreskin.
