London Circumcision Centre
Price starting from £150
The London Circumcision Centre is run by Dr Khan, who has performed more than 3000 circumcisions on babies and children in the UK. He is at the top of his field with excellent results.
Circumplast or PLastibell method
These are called ring method circumcision. Circumplast has better results than Plastibell.
Circumcision (ring method) is the cutting off of the extra fold of skin that normally covers the head of the penis with the application of a plastic ring. After circumcision, the tip of the penis is always exposed.
We use the Circumplast circumcision device of Australian origin, which has the special advantage that the ring cannot migrate proximally. Such migration has, over many years, been reported as a potential problem with the nominally similar Plastibell device. The Circumplast device also protects the glans (tip of penis) and leaves less inner skin, which gives a neater look of tight circumcision.
We have also experienced of stich and glue circumcision in children, Gomco clamp circumcision, Alisklamp circumcision (Turkish Clamp) and Plastibell circumcision.

Procedure and Risks
ASSESSMENT BEFORE OPERATION
Each child is assessed and a consultation is necessary before the operation. If there is a problem or contra-indication for circumcision a Specialist Paediatric Urologist referral is advised.
Parents may wish to have their boy circumcised for religious, social or cultural reasons. Sometimes circumcision is recommended for medical reasons such as Balanitis Xerotica obliterans (BXO) foreskin.
We perform circumcision on male children using a local anaesthetic which provides safe and effective pain-relief. We employ the Circumplast or Plastibell technique (a ring method). A plastic ring is tied around the end of the penis at the foreskin. Top of foreskin is removed. The ring stays on the end of the penis and prevents bleeding after the surgery. The surgery takes approximately 10-15 minutes.
We normally use the Circumplast circumcision device of Australian origin, which has the special advantage that the ring cannot migrate proximally. Such migration has, over many years, been reported as a potential problem with the nominally similar Plastibell device in cases where that design has been used for tight styles of circumcision. The Circumplast device also protects the glans (tip of penis) and leaves less inner skin, which gives a neater look of tight circumcision.
CIRCUMCISION FOR BABIES AND BOYS
After the operation the penis will look slightly swollen for a number of days. The swelling will gradually settle but might take a few weeks.
There might be some discomfort so we recommend medication for pain relief that can be taken orally (usually Paracetamol) for the first 48 hours. Always read the instructions on the bottle.
The wound must be kept clean to avoid infection. Bath daily using 1-2 tablespoons of salt in the bath. A good clean with running water if the area is soiled. Put Vaseline on the head of the penis with each nappy change.
The plastic ring will fall off within 3 to 14 days (average 7 days). You must contact us if the plastic ring has not fallen off within 14 days or if it has migrated to the body (shaft) of the penis.

RISKS AND SIDE-EFFECTS
In common with any other surgical procedure, circumcision has risks, including excessive bleeding, infection, complications from anaesthetics and excessive or inadequate skin removal. In rare cases a child might require a redo operation, which is more common in cases of buried or hidden penis. Please contact us directly or telephone Doctors who provide 24 hour support. Consultation can be arranged if required.
