Is it common to have to go back and fix the circumcision?
My son has a little skin that didn't get snipped or grew back hard to know. A friend had to have her son's fixed.
Is this the norm or more uncommon?

My pedi said that some of the skin can grow back. He recommends pushing the skin back at every diaper change until it's healed all the way. Then if anything does grow back he'll just take it back off for free.

From what I've learned it has become a pretty common occurrence. Nathan had to have his fixed. One side grew back almost over his urethra....so it really wasn't a choice to just watch it or have the dr. yank the skin back forcefully like some do. he had to go to the hospital as an outpatient surgery...it was over in like 20 minutes but oh so stressful (for mommy).....Our nephew had to have the dr. yank the skin back as his was doing the same thing. My DH's middle brother had to have his fixed at 41 years old! Now that would suck!

How did I miss this thread? I'm completely blind, I guess!

Yes, it's fairly common, unfortunately. No one in my family (that I know of) has had to go back, but I see it at JM all the time.

*edit* Oh, I see... the circ board just merged with this one. I thought I was losing my mind. Welcome, ladies!

I work at a medical center, circumcision complications are very common. Anytime you have a surgical procedure done, even a simple one, there are always plenty of possible complications.

adhesions occur in 71% of circumcised boys - very common complication. The body is trying to heal itself, so the skin will reattach.

Studies have shown that almost all adhesions will release on their own, and there is no need to rip them back, as it is painful and can cause scar tissue and even more problems down the road. The only time it can really cause a problem is if the adhesion is involving the circumcision line itself. But otherwise, just like the bonds break down in an intact boy, allowing the foreskin to retract in time, the bonds will release in the areas that adhered in a circ'ed boy.

Penile adhesions after neonatal circumcision. [J Urol. 2000] - PubMed result

Also, if your son was left with what appears to be a lot of skin, it is a good thing - so many boys in past decades had "tight" circs done, and it resulted in many men not having enough skin as they got older to accomodate an erection (thus, skin from the body is pulled up onto the shaft, which is why some circ'ed men have hair on the shaft, and in bad cases, the penis can actually be curved or skin split open).

I have known two that needed surgery to correct IRL & plenty that had adhesions. I think it is quite common as well. It is part of the reason I started to look into not having it done.
