Hi doc, my 4 1/2 month son had a circumcision when he was 10 days old - i didnt know at the time that there was 2 types of circumcision the cap and the stitches - a doctor gave him the old fashion way, stitches - now his penis looks funny at the bottom, u can see the place where it was stiched and the hanging skin - would it look better once he grows or would i need to take him again to get it done properly

Your baby is very young still and this usually sorts itself out with time. If you are still concerned about the apppearance of your baby son's penis at 12 months he should be taken back to the surgeon who did the circumcision.

It seems as if my son'' skin has been stiched onto his penis head. The penis does not seem to be growing properly and my concern is that the circumcision stiching onto the head is the cause. I would like to know if this problem can be rectified.

Hi Anon

It sounds normal - all 3 my boys are circ''ed. and it looks better with as they grow. What WJA said is true.

The hanging skin is what is left of his frenulum which is highly sensitive and will contribute significantly to his sexual pleasure in the future.
Don''t destroy what little he has left for the sake of appearance.
