How should I prepare for circumcision surgery?

There are a few things which you need to do before undergoing circumcision, these include:

Avoiding eating or drinking at least 6 hours before surgery. You are allowed small sips of water up till 2 hours before.

Clean and shave the pubic area the night before your surgery and bring a pair fitted briefs to wear afterwards to keep the surgical dressing in place. Continue to wear these at home until the swelling and soreness has eased.

Arrange for someone to accompany you home after the operation. 

You will need to stop smoking prior to surgery as this interferes with the healing of the wound. Smoking can also slow this down your recovery in general. Your surgeon will advise timeframes in your consultation.

You should not consume alcohol at least 48 hours before surgery as it may reduce the effectiveness of the anaesthetic and dehydrate you.

You should not need time off work unless absolutely necessary; but you may experience some pain and discomfort the first few days after surgery which can be a distraction, so arrange with your employer accordingly.
