Circumcision

Gold Coast circumcision clinic

Circumcision - general information:
Circumcision is one of the oldest surgical procedures. It may be performed for cultural, religious, or health reasons. It may simply just reflect your personal preference. Adult circumcision is an option for men who were not circumcised when they were infants. Dr Than Tun performs adult male circumcisions at Chevron Advanced Medical.


How to book:
You can book your Gold Coast circumcision online with Dr Tun - no referral needed. Please ensure you have read the information below before booking.


Fees: 
The fee is $850
(you will get a rebate of $115 from Medicare, resulting in an out of pocket expense of $735)


Before the procedure:
There are some simple things you can do to get ready for your appointment.
  • Shave pubic hairs around the genital region. 
  • Shower thoroughly. 
  • Wear comfortable, supportive underwear. 
  • Arrange for someone to drive you home. Whilst this is not a necessity, it is probably best for your comfort and safety. 
  • If you are a new patient to the clinic, please arrive 5 minutes in advance to fill in a "new patient registration form" as well as a "consent form". 


Aftercare:
The local anaesthetic will wear off after a couple of hours, after which you will start to feel some discomfort and pain. Do not take Aspirin as it may worsen bleeding. Here are a few tips to facilitate recovery time...
  • Go directly home and rest. 
  • Use pain killers. Panadol or Panadeine Forte is advised. Never use more than directed. 
  • Plan to stay off your feet as much as possible for 2 days. - Wear comfortable underwear/briefs that are supportive. 
  • If you have any concerns, book an appointment to see Dr Tun. 


Risks and complications:
The following risks are rare but possible with circumcision. If you have any concerns, please book an appointment to see Dr Tun.
  • Excessive bleeding. 
  • Wound infection and delayed wound healing. 
  • The foreskin is cut too short or left too long. 
  • Reattachment of the foreskin to the penis, which may require further minor surgery. 
  • Decrease in sensation of the head of the penis.
