  • Does your child have these or are you scared that he will have these? What is your question?

  • there is no large incision to make a scar...you can't even notice it unless someone totally botches it....if you go to a pediatric urologist who does them often, ti will look fine...and the adhesions usually come from NOT being circed if you dont know how to care for it....if he has scars after a circ then you should talk to your doctor...if it's done correctly youwon't see a scar.

  • I AM WORRIED THAT HE WILL HAVE A LARGE CIRCUMCISION SCAR AND ADHESIONS
    THAT WILL CAUSE DISCOMFORT AND MAKE HIM SELFCONSIOUS

  • Well, have you researched both sides? Are you sure you want to circ? If so, then that might be an issue you are going to have to deal with. Its something you wont know until it happens. If you circ and he does have scars will you be okay with that?

  • As far as I know (2 boys and a husband) there is no circumcision scar. Adhesions are possible of course. If you decide to do it, then just keep it pushed back at every diaper change. Make sure its clean, and youll be good. Its nothing to get worked up over and get paranoid about. My son actually did have an adhesion and his doc fixed it in one little push. Kina annoying, but it was really no big deal. Research both sides, talk to mature moms that have experienced it and make an informed decision. Thats all anyone can do. Good luck.
