Circumcision, also called casino lipoplasty or cosmetic surgery to remove skin around the glans,
is cosmetic surgical procedure that removes skin from the glans. The process is quite common
for newborn males in some parts of the west, such as the United States. The initiation of
mopping or sucking the newborn’s fats usually leads to circumcision. Circumcision after birth is
possible, though it is a more complicated procedure. If done incorrectly complications can arise
which can lead to permanent injury or even death.
Most medical experts recommend routinely circumcising infants for newborns and toddlers to
reduce the chance of disease and infection. There are also opposing views to this practice.
Some pediatricians and medical experts believe that the use of a plastic ring during this
procedure serves an important purpose, and should not be abandoned. This is based on the fact
that there have been cases where newborn babies who were circumcised with a plastic ring
developed infections later on in life. In some cases, such infections can lead to death.
Another argument against circumcision concerns the reduction in complications. This argument
states that circumcision is safer than the alternative procedure which leaves the penis exposed.
Experts agree that it is safer than the alternative procedure because there are less complications
such as scarring and pain, fewer infections, less bleeding, and less nerve damage. The
likelihood of developing infections in the future is also reduced by removing skin. Also, leaving
the penis open to the elements can lead to the growth of bacteria and other infections. This is
contrary to the advice of some doctors who recommend keeping the penis closed for at least
The opponents of circumcision argue that although complications are less common, the
procedure still has its risks. They point out that when done at an advanced age, the possibility of
contracting a disease like HIV increases. Exposed organs can cause skin irritations that can lead
to infection. There are also risks associated with the procedure, such as bleeding, penile
abnormalities, and even death. You can reduce or eliminate all of these risks by choosing safer
Pediatricians agree that circumcision has many medical benefits. This is yet to be confirmed.
Opponents believe that public opinion and publicity have fueled the debate about circumcision.
Many parents feel the same way. They believe that the increased public attention has blurred
the fact that the procedure in most cases is safe. Critics of circumcisions argue that rubber
gloves are safer than no gloves.
There are many reasons to believe that the procedure should not been used for religious
reasons. One of these is that a baby with a circumcised foreskin will naturally have a greater
interest and knowledge in religion than those who are not. The proponents of this position argue
that this is because the baby’s religious community sees the foreskin as a symbol of God’s love.
As such, they argue, it is essential that infants be kept away from the procedure until they have
outgrown the habit of being covered with a foreskin.
An elasticized bandage should not accompany circumcision. The reason for this is that the
bandage could hinder wound healing. Instead, it is better to have the procedure done before the
use of this gauze dressing. This can be achieved by placing an absorbent bandage on the penis
prior to the procedure and removing it afterward.
Critics of circumcision say that HIV is more common among uncircumcised people. The practice
of circumcision in newborn males has many health benefits. The procedure can delay the onset
and progression of AIDS. The procedure also makes the man’s organ less vulnerable to
infections like warts. Another benefit of newborn male circumcision for HIV-positive partners is
that it lowers the risk of contracting HIV
