According to a report by CBS News, sheath removal in male infants has been consistently trending down. As seen in information compiled by the Mayo Clinic, sheath removal has dropped from 83 percent in 1977 to 77 percent in 2010. While the percentage of male babies is still quite significant, more parents are questioning sheath removal, even with 50 percent of uncut males experiencing some sort of medical condition in relation to their sheath. As sheath removal experiencing less “social norm” status for babies, some men choose as adults to get cut. Let’s discuss what those men can expect from a sheath removal before and after. |
Why Adult Men Have Their Sheath Removed
Sheath removal is the surgical removal of the sheath, which is the skin covering the tip of the male organ. Most often done in the first few days of life, men who have not been cut may choose to have the procedure later in life. Of course, bringing a scalpel, or anything sharp towards a man’s member, is a big deal to most men so the reasons to willingly enter into the procedure would be considerable. Some men are changing religions, perhaps converting to Judaism, where clipping the sheath is a symbol of entering into that covenant with God. Other men choose to switch to a trimmed male organ for hygiene reasons, medical conditions like balanitis, or just because they prefer something a little more aesthetically normative to look at. Whatever the reason, men should manage their expectations before and after the process.
Adult Sheath removal: Before
There are several pros to having a sheath removal. Here is a list of the five most common benefits of sheath removal.
1) Adult sheath removal is performed under local or regional anesthesia. While it rarely requires an overnight stay, patients should bring a friend to drive them home and get them settled in.
2) Keep the member in healthy shape prior to sheath removal. ‘Nuff said.
3) Good grooming is appreciated. The pubic hair will not be shaved for surgery; however, coming in with a neatly trimmed region is a consideration that is not only polite but another way to inhibit bacteria.
4) Be ready for inspection. The doctor will inspect the male organ to be sure there are no causes for concern or counterindications for the procedure.
Adult Sheath removal: After
There’s some good and some inconvenience that happens after sheath removal. However, with a little foresight, some of the discomforts can be lessened.
1) There will be some pain, discomfort, and swelling for up to three weeks. The older the man, the sorer and more uncomfortable a sheath removal tends to be. Over-the-counter pain medication and cool compresses can help reduce pain and swelling.
2) Most men will want to take one to two weeks off work to heal. The bright side? No awkward, forced coffee conversations with Brenda from accounting and sweats are the new wardrobe.
3) Take a break from intimacy and self-pleasure. Erections can be painful for the newly unveiled member, so take it slow and follow doctor’s orders.
4) Sensual sensations will also change as the member no longer wears its sweater for sensual time. Men may find themselves becoming aroused faster and releasing faster as well. It takes a little time to get used to a new groove.
5) Washing the male organ will surely be easier after a sheath removal. However, that’s not a reason to get lax about it! Still, perform regular cleansing with the same care and thoroughness.
Now that the member is unsheathed, consider adding a specially designed male organ health creme (health professionals recommend Man 1 Man Oil, which has been clinically proven safe and mild for skin) to the mix. This type of crème will keep the member soft, smooth, and invigorated with vitamins and minerals essential to member health. Use a crème packed with vitamins A, C, D, and E, which are well-known for their skin-soothing, antibacterial, cell regeneration, and healing properties. Also, choose a crème that has a natural base like Shea butter which will lock in moisture while being gentle on the skin.
