Circumcision Clinic: Older Babies Circumcision Causes and Procedure
Older Babies Circumcision Causes and Procedure
Circumcision can be performed at any age, even on older babies. There are many reasons why a baby may not have undergone circumcision at birth. However, it is never too late to have this procedure done. This article will discuss the causes for circumcisions in older babies and the procedure involved at our circumcision clinic.
Causes of Circumcision in Older Babies
Most advocates recommend that circumcision should be performed at birth. That is because the procedure is easier and less painful for the baby and the healing process is also faster. However, in some cases, this may not be possible and here are some reasons why.
It is not uncommon for parents to be unsure about whether they want to circumcise their baby immediately after birth. They may have heard different opinions from friends and family, or they may have concerns about the procedure itself. In these cases, they may decide to delay the circumcision until they have had more time to research the topic.
In some cases, a baby may have a medical condition that prevents circumcision from being performed at birth. For example, if the baby is born premature, it may be necessary to wait until the baby is stronger before undergoing circumcision. Additionally, the baby may experience breathing problems during delivery, and thus, their health and well-being take priority over circumcision.
Older Babies Circumcision at Easy Circumcision
At Easy Circumcision, we understand the unique challenges and uncertainties that come with circumcising older babies. That’s why we offer a gentle and compassionate approach to circumcision, using the traditional Mohel procedure. Our procedure is performed in a safe and sterile environment, and the baby is held securely in the loving hands of their parents or guardians, rather than using a circumstraint board. The procedure itself takes only 30 seconds. Our mohel will insert a thin instrument to break the adhesion between the foreskin and the glans, gently pulling the foreskin forward and using a special shield to close off the nerve endings and blood vessels. With a scalpel, the parent or Rabbi Mike will then remove the foreskin, following which the area is cleaned and a loose wrap with numbing medicine and healing powder from Israel is applied. The circumcision procedure is followed by a straightforward recovery process. Rabbi Mike will provide detailed aftercare instructions to ensure the best possible outcome for your baby.
If you are considering circumcising your older baby, we encourage you to contact Rabbi Mike, he will provide you with all the information you need to make an informed decision and ensure that your baby receives the best possible care. Get in touch with us today!
