Laser circumcision uses energy generated from a Carbon Dioxide (CO2) laser to cut the excess foreskin. It also seals the small blood vessels along the surgical incision, resulting in less bleeding and quicker recovery.
Phimosis is the excess foreskin that forms a tight constriction, preventing retraction of foreskin to expose the glans (head) of the penis. It can be congenital or a result of previous infection or injury to the foreskin. Repeated traumatic attempts to forcibly retract the foreskin in adult can lead to ‘cracks’ at the foreskin and healing with scar formation and phimosis.
Circumcision surgery removes this tight ring of constriction.
