What is Circumcision Revision?

Same Day Adult Male Circumcision Revision

Circumcision revision is a procedure designed to correct the appearance of the penis after a prior circumcision. About 5-10% of men experience problems after circumcision that may require correction.  

At New York Urology Specialists, we have extensive experience with some of the most complex surgeries on the penis including circumcision revision. 

We perform most circumcision revisions in our office under local anesthesia with quick recovery. Read what to expect before and after circumcision revision at New York Urology Specialists.  

Surprisingly to many of our patients, we keep circumcision revision costs affordable by saving you hospital fees and anesthesia fees.  Patients who are not from New York City can usually fly back the next day.

Did you know?  Dr. Shteynshlyuger has performed over 1,000 penile surgeries including circumcisions, circumcision revisions, frenuloplasty, penile implants, correction of Peyronie’s disease and congenital penile curvature.  He performs 150-200 penile surgeries a year.

Reasons for Having Circumcision Revision

Many men who have been circumcised at birth or later in life are unsatisfied with the appearance of their penis.  

Circumcision revision is a plastic surgery procedure customized to the anatomical needs of each individual patient to provide the best results.  Circumcision revision can be performed in our office under local anesthesia or in a surgical center under general anesthesia.

Some men have very prominent stitch marks from prior circumcision; some men have ‘bumps‘ in the scar tissue that sometimes may cause pain, sensitivity or discomfort.  Some men have too much skin left after circumcision, in other words, the circumcision is too loose, or the frenulum was not removed.  Circumcision revision can often correct these problems.  Still, other men had either too much skin removed which can make the penis feel tight with erections or developed ‘turtle-neck‘ or penoscrotal web after circumcision.

Penile skin bridges are another reason to have circumcision revision. In this case, the removal of penile skin bridges often solves the problem.   Penile cysts can also infrequently occur within the circumcision scar. Depending on the size and location of penile cysts, cyst excision or circumcision revision can be performed. 

At New York Urology Specialists, We Correct the Following Problems with Prior Circumcisions

Circumcision Scar Revision

Some men have uneven, very pronounced circumcision scar that may be very noticeable and desire to have circumcision scar removal.  This is what is called a hypertrophic scar. 

Some men feel chronic and constant pain, discomfort, or irritation of circumcision scar. Depending on the problem either medical treatment or circumcision scar removal may help with the problem. 

Sometimes one side of the penis has excessive or uneven skin which can be corrected with circumcision revision.  Excessive, wide and uneven circumcision scar edges can also be corrected with circumcision revision

Incomplete or Partial Circumcision

Occasionally incomplete circumcision can cause trauma and pain during sex; occasionally we have seen phimosis-like appearance after partial circumcision.  Some men experience poor hygiene as a result of incomplete circumcision. It is not uncommon for men to experience embarrassment or decreased self-esteem due to the appearance of the penis.  As a result, men can experience difficulty in establishing and maintaining intimate relationships. We offer affordable correction of incomplete or partial circumcision in our office under local anesthesia. 

Removal of the Frenulum of the Penis After Circumcision

Sometimes a very prominent frenulum, if not removed during circumcision or if only partially removed, can cause unsightly appearance or discomfort during sex.  Some men have large and unsightly frenular skin on the underneath of the penis that affects the appearance of the penis and sometimes causes irritation and pain during sex.  We offer frenuloplasty after circumcision as well as frenuloplasty revision.  The procedure is done in the office under local anesthesia with minimal discomfort.

Types of Circumcision Revision

Circumcision revision is a surgical procedure performed to correct or improve the appearance of the penis and penile skin after a prior circumcision.  The most commonly performed revision is the straightening of the circumcision scar or removing the excessive or uneven foreskin.

A more complex surgical procedure may be required in some men to correct the appearance of the penis after prior circumcision.  This may require using advanced plastic surgery techniques such as flap rotation or grafting skin from other areas.

Reasons Men Choose to Have Circumcision Revision:

  • improve the appearance of the scar
  • remove excess foreskin
  • hygienic reasons

Does Insurance Pay for Circumcision Revision?

Circumcision revision may or may not be covered by insurance coverage depending on whether it is for aesthetic reasons (not covered) or functional reasons (usually covered). We offer an affordable price for circumcision revision.

Cost of Circumcision Revision

The cost of cosmetic circumcision revision at New York Urology Specialists is $2,400 ($2,400 * (Includes facility fee, surgical assistant fee, supplies fee and 3 post-circumcision follow visits for routine circumcision revision).  Learn more about the cost of circumcision revision.  This saves anywhere from $2,000-$8,000 compared to hospital-based circumcision revision.

Recovery after Circumcision Revision

In general, recovery after circumcision revision is similar to recovery after circumcision.  In our practice, most men are able to resume work within 1-3 days after circumcision revision.  Many men do not require pain medications beyond over-the-counter anti-inflammatory pain relievers.

Care at NY Urology Specialists
by on Jul 06, 2019

I am a 54 year-old male who is extremely happy with my care at New York Urology Specialists. I came to see Dr. Alex out of near desperation after consulting with three other urologists. Literally over one night, I began experiencing severe penile pain and burning. None of the other urologists were able to help diagnose what my problem was and seemingly didn't take my problem very seriously. In fact, one of them specifically told me at it had nothing to do with my prostate. After 6 weeks of suffering, I saw Dr. Alex. He examined me and gave me some tests and lab work. He very quickly ascertained that my problem was due to an enlarged prostate. He proscribed medicine to deal with my pain in the short-term and keep my prostate size in check over the long-term. My problem quickly disappeared. Today, 5 years later, I feel great. Dr, Alex listens to you as a patient, takes your opinion and health concerns seriously and knows his field inside-and-out so that you can get proper treatment for your problem. I can't thank him enough for diagnosing and solving my malady - you sometimes can't appreciate a problem until you have it. Getting rid of it and getting back to normal is so important - I am so glad that I saw Dr. Alex for my problem.

Hello, I wanted to simply thank you for your help. My condition has improved. I saw my regular Urologist yesterday and he agreed with everything you said. I am most appreciative of the speed and efficiency with which I was able to see you. I will be using the cream for another 2-3 weeks and hopefully that will be the end of my trouble. However, if not you can be assured that I will visit your practice again. Thank you for seeing me yesterday. In many ways my mind was put at ease. The operation is very efficient and professional.

"Cannot express how thankful I am I found Dr. Shtetnshlyuger. After undergoing surgery to correct a penile torsion I couldn't be happier with the results. A great doctor who is clearly good at what he does. With something as important as your private area, It's nice to be able to rest easy and know you are in good hands.." via 12/5/2017

Thanks again Dr Alex from my family.

Good Dr. who cares about his patients
by on Aug 18, 2017

Received circumcision from Dr. Shteynshlyuger. Dr. Shteynshlyuger is a very good specialist who cares for his patients. He was always concerned with my physical and mental comfort prior, during and post-operation. Dr. Alex is very thorough in his work to assess any problems and provide the necessary solution. Being that he has recently moved to a new location, this may afford for speedier appointments and easier flow of patients in and out. In addition, more personal space for waiting patients. If there was any con, it would be, the lack of space at his prior office and being able to see his patients at the appointed time, but a necessary sacrifice for good, careful work. I would recommend him as a very good doctor.
