How long does it take for circumcision to fully heal?

June | 2021

Adult circumcision and infant circumcision might be required for health, hygiene, religious purposes and in certain medical conditions. Usually, it takes about 7 to 10 days to fully heal after a circumcision procedure but House of Doctors explains every aspect of circumcision to better understand the process and healing.

What is Circumcision?

Circumcision involves the surgical removal of the foreskin- a loose blanket of skin which covers the head (glans) of the penis. Foreskin distinguishes the head from the penile shaft and has the ability to retract (can be pulled back). However, in certain medical conditions like phimosis, the foreskin becomes stiff and loses the elasticity to retract. This then requires circumcision.

The surgery is simple and an expert healthcare service panel like that of House of Doctors carries the procedure within a few minutes at one of the best surgery hospital in Mumbai.
