What is Low and Tight Circumcision?
Circumcision removes the foreskin that covers the head of the penis. Usually, newborn babies have this done shortly after birth. However, men can have it done at any stage in life. Adults may elect to do so for medical, health, and aesthetics reasons. Before we go any further, it is important to understand the basic anatomy of the penis.
About the Prepuce
Also known as the prepuce, the foreskin has both inner and outer layers of skin that become exposed when the penis becomes erect. During the circumcision, cuts are made in both layers. And the remaining skin is stitched back. Depending on how much skin is removed, Dr. Bidair can easily control the length of the remaining foreskin and its tension.
Styles of Circumcisions
A low and tight circumcision simply refers to a specific method that repositions and reduces the foreskin in a highly specific manner. The overall length of the shaft and the foundation of the existing foreskin will determine what kind of method Dr. Bidair will perform to achieve an appealing result that works for you.
Circumcision is an important decision. Men who are taking a proactive step and scheduling an appointment for this procedure are exercising their personal choice to achieve a look that works best for them. Men cite religious or cultural grounds as some of the main reasons. Notwithstanding, men opting for this treatment have seen the following benefits as well:
- Minimizing difference is skin tones in the lower and upper shaft
- Exposed glans lets you feel greater sensations during sex
- Greater confidence during intimacy
- Decreased risk in urinary tract infections
- Lower risk in sexually transmitted infections
- Reduction in penile cancer

During your casual consultation, the doctor will ask you questions about your medical history and will note any medications or supplements you take. After that, he will examine your penis. He will check the features of your shaft to see which method of circumcision may be right for you. While he is doing this, he will ask for your input on what you may prefer. Next, we’ll educate you on the different types of treatment methods for adult circumcision. Based on your aesthetic concerns, he will make a recommendation that will either be a high or a low cut. Once done, our friendly staff will set up your appointment and provide you a few to-do items to complete just before the circumcision.
We want to make sure you have a good and efficient experience with us. Just before your procedure, please complete the detailed, customized set instructions given to you at your consultation. Some necessary things to take care of:
- Arrange for a ride home if driving more than 4 hours
- Avoid smoking for a few days before
- Do not take blood thinners and anti-inflammatory medications like ibuprofen
- Refrain from consuming tobacco and alcohol
- Get a good night’s rest and eat healthy
- Eat a light meal before coming to the office
When you arrive we ensure your comfort so that you have a good experience under our care. When you arrive you will be shown to your treatment room where you’ll be asked to put on a gown. Once that happens, you will be resting comfortably so that you will feel cozy. Next, Dr. Bidair will perform the low and tight circumcision if that is your style choice. Here, he will make an incision that will be closer to the head of the penis. Some foreskin may be left as determined by your treatment plan. Once complete, the incisions are closed up and dressings will be applied to the treated area. The entire procedure should take about an hour.
Patients may experience swelling in the first few days following surgery. Pain is minimal and can be eased by taking OTC medications. However, pain medications are also prescribed. You will have a dressing that will be at the head of the penis. Please follow Dr. Bidair’s directions on when to remove it. Wear comfortable, snug underwear that will hold the penis upright. This will help the swelling to go down. Patients who have sedimentary work can return to work in 2-3 days. Those who have physical work may have to wait longer to return. Sexual activity can be resumed within 2-4 weeks.
In 1-2 weeks after your procedure, the bandage will no longer be needed and can be removed. Full results will start to show in 1-2 months. Each man’s decision for circumcision is different. If you chose it for health reasons like phimosis, the procedure is highly successful in correcting that. If you’ve done it for religious reasons, you may have a deeper connection about your decision. The reasons may be different but the results provide rewarding and profound benefits for men opting for circumcision.
Costs for circumcision will depend on a few factors determined by Dr. Bidair including the patient’s age, body type, and other factors. All these details will be given to you during your initial consultation. If you have questions about financing your treatment give us a call at (619) 486-5005. We are more than happy to help you see this through.
Is circumcision safe?
Getting a circumcision is a safe procedure that has roots dating as far back as the fall of the Roman Empire. There is a low risk of complications.
Will a circumcision have any effect on the size of my penis?
No, circumcision will not alter the girth or length of your penis. Dr. Bidair will make sure there is enough skin along the penile shaft to stretch over the length of the penis when it becomes erect.
How does circumcision prevent infections?
The inside of the foreskin is a warm and damp environment where bacteria can grow fast. The lack of proper hygiene can cause bacteria overgrowth which leads to irritation or infection. Painful swelling of the glans (balanitis), the foreskin (posthitis), or even both (balanoposthitis) can happen as a result. These ailments give way to a condition known as phimosis. This is when the foreskin is can’t be retracted over the swollen head of the penis. Circumcision simply removes the foreskin and can prevent all of this from happening.
