My neighbors son is going to have surgery on his penis (he is only 2 yrs. old) poor baby, only because when he was born he did get circumsized but I guess they did not do enough snipping, Now you can not see the rim of the head.
So they are going to correct it. What are your thoughts on this?
Is this common? The mom is pretty nervous about this...I don't blame her.

It is very common for doctors today to remove less foreskin than they used to. They leave more to prevent erection problems in adulthood. Many parents don't seem to realize that a childs penis looks very different than an adult one, and it can take quite a while for the boy to "grow into" the remaining foreskin. At 2 years old, it might look like he has too much foreskin, but at 5 or 7 his penis may look like how the parents are used to seeing a circumcised penis look. I wouldn't have cosmetic surgery performed on my child once, let alone twice.
