Ring Method

0-12 Years Circumplast/Plastibell Procedure
When boys are born, they have a piece of skin that covers the end of the penis, called the foreskin. Circumcision is the surgical removal of the foreskin to expose the tip of the penis. A newborn must be stable and healthy to be circumcised. If a parent decides to have her baby circumcised, the procedure is usually performed in the baby's first few days of life (assuming the procedure will not be taking place during a religious ceremony).

To perform the procedure, the doctor places the baby on a special table and cleans the baby's penis and foreskin. A special clamp is attached to the penis, and the foreskin is removed. Finally, ointment and gauze or a plastic ring are placed over the cut to protect it from rubbing against the diaper.
The procedure is done relatively quickly and smoothly. The baby may cry during the procedure and for a short while afterward. Local anaesthesia can greatly reduce your baby's discomfort

Forceps Guided Method

This procedure is for is for children over the age of 10 years and adults, and will take around 40 minutes.  
To perform the forceps guided method, the foreskin is retracted to free the head (glans), a clamp is carefully placed across the foreskin, the foreskin is then removed. After stopping any bleeding, the skin edges are sutured using dissolvable sutures. The wound is then cleaned with antiseptic before a dressing applied.
