For adult circumcision, I use the sleeve resection technique in which the foreskin is removed as a single ring of tissue utilizing a scalpel. In my opinion, this gives a symmetrical, fine incision line. In addition to a refined scar line, this technique allows the final result to be customized to the patient's specifications if he has a particular outcome in mind. Many urologists perform adult circumcisions with general anesthesia. This is a more complicated and expensive procedure than local anesthesia. I perform almost all of the procedures for my patients utilizing local anesthetics.
