The foreskin that covers the penis head is removed during a medical procedure called circumcision. Usually, this operation is carried out for ethical, spiritual, or medicinal reasons. Circumcision is a customary practice that is said to improve sanitation and offer health benefits in some cultures and faiths. Medical disorders like phimosis, in which the foreskin is excessively tight and causes pain during erection or urine, may be treated with circumcision. Both newborns and adults can have circumcisions, which are commonly done under local anesthesia. Most people can return to their regular activities within a few days, however, recovery times can vary based on the patient’s age and the technique used for the treatment.
