No further bandaging is necessary. One may continue to apply ointment as needed to enhance further healing. Each child is unique and the techniques of performing circumcisions vary. Cosmetic results will vary from child to child and cannot be guaranteed (i.e. adhesions, scar tissue, curvature, asymmetry, unevenness, etc.) Siblings or twins may not look the same even if the bris was done with the same technique or by the same mohel. During the healing process, the head (glans and corona) should remain completely revealed. The following may occur during the healing process:
For babies who gain a lot of weight quickly, if the weight is located in the thighs and/or abdominal areas, the fat may cause the head of the penis to retract completely. Slide or gently push the skin back and apply ointment to avoid adhesions. This may need to be done for many months in order to prevent adhesions. If there is any question about the healing process or appearance of the circumcision site, DO NOT WAIT—email me immediately at firstname.lastname@example.org. You may email me one or two digital pictures of the area or arrangements will be made to see the baby.
