Where Do I start?

Circumcisions in modern times are mainly performed to correct or remedy medical concerns. Circumcising dates back as far as ancient Egyptian times, and the principles of the procedure have not changed much over the centuries.
We aim to share our knowledge with you here, covering all the topics related to circumcision: what it is, why it is done, how it is performed; the side-effects and complications; the fears, truths, half-truths, and the lies; along with anything in between.

How common are Circumcisions?

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

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.

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

CLIENT REVIEWS

I’m now 2 weeks post-op and happier than ever with the results

So I had suffered from Phimosis and only up until recently did read up about what it is via the website that is linked with Arte Novi Clinic. I booked a consultation for a Friday afternoon to find out more about the treatment involved and about recovery etc. I left the clinic and arranged the following week to have the treatment done. One of my main concerns was when I could resume work and return to exercising. The procedure we had agreed to do was Partial Circumcision and Frenuloplasty. When I went to the clinic I received a local anaesthetic which made me feel like I dozed off for 5 mins however 1-hour passed and the procedure was done! No pain at all, only a little nauseous that evening from the local anaesthetic which is a common side effect that lasts only about 20 seconds. I had no complications and by Tuesday morning I was able to resume to Spinning classes with zero pain or discomfort! The stitches dissolved within 7 – 10 days and I’m now 2 weeks post-op and happier than ever with the results. Dr Sam was always accessible through call or text with any concerns I had day or night. I would highly recommend this to anybody interested and to just book a consultation! The clinic was very welcoming and easy to find. The staff made me feel really comfortable, relaxed coming in for the consultation and then

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

Grateful for excellent care and attention to my situation.

I have been suffering from phimosis for many years now and I always thought there would be no way to eradicate it. I stumbled across this clinic on the internet and decided to make a consultation with Dr. Sam. I was apprehensive prior to my consultation because of my feeling of embarrassment but Dr. Sam possesses an approachable and extremely friendly manner that diminished any negative feeling I had. Dr. Sam talked me through the procedure of partial circumcision and gave me an operation date scheduled the week after my consultation. The operation went perfectly and it was over before I knew it. Since then I have been recovering quickly with no issues arising. Dr. Sam has been consistently in contact with me regarding my recovery. This is something I greatly appreciate given the difficult nature of the situation, having Dr. Sam guide me through the motions has made the whole process so easy. I’m now a little over a week since my surgery and my recovery is going perfectly. Dr. Sam is still in regular contact with me and any questions I’ve had have been answered quickly with great effect. I would definitely recommend Dr. Sam to anyone struggling with a similar condition, I already feel like a new person. All I can say is I wish I did it sooner! I cannot stress how grateful I am of Dr. Sam’s constant care and attention to my

The results was a lot better than I
