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

A top doctor, top clinic and very comfortable, painless experience

Classic circumcision and frenuloplasty. For years I had been suffering from ongoing infections/balanitis under the foreskin despite keeping myself clean. Post intimacy give or take a few days, balanitis would rear its ugly head constantly (excuse the pun). A number of years back I was sent to a urologist and I booked in the surgery but pulled out at the last second. A number of my buddies had adult circumcisions done and said it was going to be a painful recovery. Fast forward a few years and I wanted not to go through the whole process of waiting for surgery for months (again), but started looking online and came across Arte Novi. I am 1 week post my op and I can honestly say I have had ZERO pain since I first sat in the comfortable operating chair. The only bit of discomfort (minimal discomfort) is being awoken in the early hours with nocturnal tumescence. I was given a cream for these occurrences which I haven’t had to use once! Would highly recommend Arti Novi to anyone looking for a top doctor, top clinic and very comfortable, painless experience and really fast recovery! I told some folks at work I was getting an up on my leg, to preempt a limp I may have had on my return to work a few days later but there is no limp whatsoever! I chose Arte Novi because of the reviews I had read online on Whatclinic.com and I am glad I had my procedure done here. The clinic is in a beautiful location of Malahide. It is a spotless, friendly clinic and Dr. Sam is the man! A top surgeon, top guy. He is very friendly and makes his patients feel at ease from the very first discussion on the phone. A genius with that laser used to do the procedure (which ensures much much faster recovery) and I know Dr. Sam is a top hair transplant surgeon too. I have a bald patch so that could well be next on the list.

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.

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 situation.

Quick Resolution

I made contact with Dr. Sam due to a long standing phimosis problem I had. Within just 7 days of initial contact, this problem I have carried with me for many years appears to have been resolved with minimal fuss. I had a partial circumcision procedure carried out. Everything was clearly explained prior to the procedure and I honestly didn’t feel the slightest bit of pain during or after it. I am now almost 72hrs post procedure and everything is running smoothly so far. I would highly recommend Dr. Sam.

Excellent service and game changer for me personally

My experience with NuaCell was a really good one to sum it up in a few words, it was a life changer for me. I had circumcision with NuaCell – the staff were very welcoming and they took good care of me. My procedure was smooth and quick. NO PAIN and I was fully recovered within 3 weeks. The results was a lot better than I imagined
