Many practitioners view the circumcision as the whole of the procedure. In fact, it is just the most controlled part of the process. Parental care of the newly circumcised penis and the course of healing play a big part of the final result. Setting reasonable expectations, providing as good an experience for the parents as possible and diligent aftercare will increase the likelihood of an excellent result.
