What is Circumcision?
Circumcision is the surgical removal of all or part of the foreskin (skin covering the head of the penis). The decision to be circumcised is very personal and should only be made after careful consideration. We encourage you to discuss any questions or concerns with your health-care provider.
Reasons for circumcision generally fall into three broad groups:
- To treat a medical condition
- To prevent future disease
- To fulfill a religious/cultural tradition

Circumcision Melbourne — Your trusted doctor for circumcision at all agesVictoria Circumcision Clinic specialises in performing circumcisions for males of all ages in Melbourne — from newborns to older men. Your comfort is our main priority and we ensure you will receive the highest quality care and support. Circumcision is the surgical removal of the foreskin from the tip of the penis, usually for health, religious or cultural reasons. We perform a variety of circumcision procedures, depending on our patient’s unique needs.
What you need to know before the procedureCircumcision is a surgery, even if it is low risk. As such, it is important for the family to deliberate on whether they want their son to be circumcised and consider the pros and cons. Dr. Hajoona will go over all the main concerns in your consultation and will be able to answer any questions about the procedure; below are some of the most common queries we receive from our Melbourne patients and other information you may find useful for your decision.
What age is best for circumcision?Circumcision is usually performed on babies and young boys; however, the procedure can be performed for men of all ages, including adults. That being said, newborns experience the least amount of pain from circumcision and recover faster than older patients, typically within 2 weeks. If you intend to have your son circumcised, we recommend having a consultation in the first couple of months after your child has been born. Not only will this minimise discomfort and allow him to quickly recover, but it is also the most affordable option for circumcision in Melbourne.
What are the benefits of circumcision?Circumcision is mostly performed for religious or cultural reasons; however, there are several recorded health benefits of the procedure.
- Lowers risk of urinary tract infections
- Prevents phimosis (tightening of the foreskin)
- Prevents balanitis (infections under the foreskin)
- Lowers risk of developing penile cancer
- Lower risk of sexually transmitted diseases such as HIV
- Improves hygiene of penis area
What are the risks of circumcision?Circumcision is a surgery and is not completely risk-free. Below are some of the risks that are known to be associated with the procedures; most, however, can be mitigated by having the foreskin removal performed by a Melbourne specialist like Dr Hajoona.
