Post baby circumcision

Up until the age of one month, analgesia is less necessary and often bottle feeding, breastfeeding and cuddles from the parents are enough to calm your child. Cleaning is normally done as usual with soap and water. The medical ring falls off within 14 days in babies around 4-6 days. The older the child the thicker the skin is and the longer this falling process will be delayed: typically about 14 days after the operation The return home can be done directly after circumcision. The first bath can be given the next day. Complete cure occurs one month after surgery. It is not necessary to wear special pants after circumcision, but cream is advised the first two weeks to avoid clinging of the foreskin to the diaper.

In the case of urinary problems

Normally, there are no urinary complications, but, if the ring is too tight, there may be difficulty in initiating urination. Different reasons that can cause post-circumcision urinary problems include: swelling, tight dressing, or analgesia.
Proper hydration is essential. If the child is still unable to urinate, he must go to the children's hospital (Ste Justine or MCH).

Cases of particular concerns

Swelling, discoloration and blisters on the penis are normal reactions. After the ring has fallen off, the swelling will gradually disappear.
If you have any questions or concerns, you can call the office or our assistant Gilles (514) 441-3234 who will be able to answer you or you can contact our doctors.
If you are fully satisfied one month after circumcision, there is no need to return to the clinic. Otherwise, regardless of anxiety, you can make an appointment to see the doctor again. In case of emergency, you should visit the children’s hospital.

Medical emergencies

Significant bleeding. Check the pressure by pressing your finger at the site of bleeding for 20 minutes: if it persists, go to the nearest children's hospital.
If it is impossible for your baby to urinate after eight hours despite good hydration, this may be a case of urgency and you should go directly to the hospital.

Summary: a step-by-step breakdown of circumcision on D-Day and follow-ups

  • 1 - Circumcision is initiated by the patient or consented to by the parents
  • 2 - The explanatory documents are given before circumcision. Physicians answer questions from parents or patients.
  • 3 - Consent for circumcision is signed.
  • 4 - Analgesia: We perform an anaesthetic procedure at the base of the penis. After 10-20 minutes, the desired effect is achieved.
  • 5 - Medicine removes pain during circumcision
  • 6 - The baby is immobilized during circumcision to avoid possible movement.
    We proceed with circumcision. The foreskin adhesions are removed from the glans.
    A ring is placed on the glans and a string holds it in place at the circumcision site. This helps to prevent bleeding.
  • 7 - A small amount of skin will be removed and the rest will fall like an umbilical cord.
  • 8 - We place Vaseline at the tip of the glans to prevent the glans from sticking to the diaper.
  • 9 - The ring falls with the string between 2-16 days depending on age. It is from this moment on that the swelling will disappear.

  • 11 - In most cases, urine remains unchanged. Pain in this area is rare.
