Circumcision Partially Recommended

Changing how your body looks has become very popular, and not surprisingly this sometimes includes the genitals.1 2 Most of these modifications are minor, but circumcision is surgery and the permanent removal of healthy tissue. The loss from circumcision is irreversible and it will affect your sex life for the rest of your life. You might also want to talk with a therapist regarding your body-image issues in order to get a clear picture of why you want circumcision. Adult men very rarely choose circumcision for non-medical reasons.3 Should you decide for circumcision, it should be performed only by a physician experienced in this surgery.
