What is Circumcision?

Circumcision is a safe procedure for men which generally involves a surgical intervention to provide relief from a range of conditions, including:

  • balanitis (swelling of the foreskin)
  • balanoposthitis (inflammation of the tip and foreskin of the penis)
  • paraphimosis (inability to return a retracted foreskin to its original position)
  • phimosis (inability to retract the foreskin)

How common are Circumcision?

30% of men are circumcised Worldwide.
On average 56% of men in America are circumcised compared with only 8.5% of men in the UK
In Ireland, that number is even lower, and this is generally thought to be a result of embarrassment. We aim to change this and to help many thousands of Irish men who are suffering with easily treatable conditions.

What are the reasons?

In Europe, these are the most common reasons:

A persistent medical condition
Phimosis or tight foreskin
Paraphimosis
Chronic Balanitis
Lichen Sclerosa (white depigmentation of foreskin with/out phimosis)
Painful Erections
Recurrent infection of foreskin
Injury with or without painful scarring
Chronic medical conditions with increased risk of infection i.e. Diabetes
Elongated foreskin in flaccid state
Foreskin discoloration
Cosmetic appearance of a circumcised penis
Hygiene or perceived hygiene reason

How can it be fixed?

Under normal circumstances the foreskin should be able to retract over the glans when the penis is in a flaccid state, as well as when in an aroused state.
If this isn’t the case and foreskin doesn’t retract, you most probably have a phimosis
After examination of your presentation and condition, we will inform you of the different options available, accommodating your preferences
The narrowing foreskin is fixed through either a partial or classic circumcision

What are my options?

Full or Classic Circumcision:

In this case, the entire foreskin is removed
The glans is completely exposed at all times
Either have a narrow or wide cuff behind the glands, depending on examination findings

Partial Circumcision:

The most popular procedure
Only remove the mechanical stricture – correcting the concern
It is executed exactly like a classical circumcision, except less foreskin is removed
The procedure is slightly more complicated and takes a little longer to perform
Recovery is a bit slower, requiring more focused after care.
A more natural appearance afterwards, compared to a classic circumcision

Frenuloplasty / Preputioplasty / Frenulectomy:

Frenulum breve presentation (short frenulum)
This could be natural, or due to scarring
Most of the time its part of a bigger problem i.e. tight phimosis or paraphimosis
Surgical correction with a special technique allows lengthening of the frenulum to appropriate size.

Outstanding

Got the partial circumcision from doctor Sam and I have to say that the service was outstanding. Initially, I sent an email explaining my query and Sam got back to me super fast and even offered me a phone call to discuss everything fully. I was provided with a date for my appointment within days and had the op done in no time. Sam and his receptionist are really nice and genuine people who are really easy to talk to which makes you feel really comfortable on the day of the operation. The operation was painless and the recovery was far easier than I had anticipated. I was even provided with a free meal afterwards. My only regret is that I didn’t get the operation sooner. Anybody who is considering getting it done or is hesitant to get any issue of this nature checked out, don’t waste any more time. 5 star service, would recommend to anybody:)

You’re treated so well, l they make you feel like a friend

For years I’ve suffered from extremely tight foreskin, it took me a long time to go about getting it sorted. I’m only sorry I didn’t find Dr Sam sooner as I’ve gone years in silence with this issue. I got a partial circumcision as my choice and I’m so happy with the results it’s a couple of weeks since the surgery. I’ve never felt as happy with the result. In the process I needed part of skin tested as lesion was found Dr Sam had it tested and all was ok. Another thing I have to say about Dr Sam is that he stays in touch with you regularly to make sure you are doing good and recovering well. I really liked that and it showed the good character this man has. I have a generalised anxiety disorder for as long as I can remember. I’m an extremely nervous person in my daily life we won’t go too much into that here. Going for this procedure I was beyond the point of tears I was so anxious but I knew deep down I was in good hands with Dr Sam after our previous consultation few weeks prior. He calmed me so much and reassured me everything will be ok. Played my favourite music allowed a friend to come in beforehand which made me even more relaxed. He is a true gentleman and he takes his work very seriously. A lot of places you call or attend for consultations is very in and out we want your money bye type vibe. By no means is this the case at this practice. I love a good distance from Malahide and I’m happy a made the trip. You’re treated so well, l they make you feel like a friend in a relaxed environment. I’m sorry I didn’t find you sooner Dr Sam thank you for everything forever grateful to you.

Amazing Results

This was my very first operation and it was a smooth and quick experience. Dr Sam is an intelligent and caring doctor who knows how to get the job done. I am very pleased I went to NuaCell and I am glad he treated me with utmost care. I highly recommend going to NuaCell if you need to receive circumcision or any male anatomy issues that is needed to be resolved. Thank you very much Dr Sam for treating me with utmost excellence.

I had a classical circumcision

I had a classical circumcision as I was suffering from balanitis and phimosis and it was really uncomfortable and hurt pretty bad. I was left on a public waiting list for over a year to even see a urologist and when I discussed the problem with him he told me that I might have to wait for almost a year again and to get the procedure done and that’s when I said enough is enough. I paid 1050 euro and I think the price is very reasonable I would definitely recommend this clinic to anyone who has this problem. After been told I had to wait a year to see a urologist and maybe another year to actually get the circumcision procedure done, I decided to go to a private clinic and I was surprised how friendly and relaxing the experience was. Dr. Sam was excellent and very welcoming I didn’t even feel like I was going to have an operation. Dr. Sam described everything about the procedure and after care and possible effects as well as giving his own opinion and experience. I would highly recommend this clinic.

The only regret I have is I didn’t get it done any sooner. Would highly recommend

Had been putting it off for a long time and finally decided to inquire about it and from the very start. Dr. Sam was very helpful and responded to all my emails very quickly and gave me all the information I needed. Booked my treatment and within a week it was done. I was made feel at ease from the very start and am really happy with the results. Had the procedure 3 weeks ago, went back to work the next day with no issues and literally no pain. The only regret I have is I didn’t get it done any sooner. Would highly recommend.
