Circumcision in Penrith
Circumcision is performed to remove the foreskin of the penis. The foreskin is the continuation of the skin that covers the whole penis. The retractable thin layer of the skin covers the end of the penis. Medical and Fitness Centre hosts some of the most experienced doctors performing circumcisions with safe and excellent care.
Foreskin in uncircumcised males – It’s normal for the foreskin of baby boys to not pull back (retract) for the first few years of their lives.
In some boys, it takes even longer for the foreskin to separate, and it does not indicate any problem; the foreskin will simply detach at a later stage. However, as the foreskin starts to separate, you might notice the foreskin “ballooning out” whenever your son passes urine. Occasionally it can lead to infection of the foreskin, but it usually settles down with time. You should never try to force your son’s foreskin back as it may be painful and damage the foreskin. Nonetheless, uncircumcised males must maintain good genital hygiene to prevent possible infections.
