Laser circumcision is a surgical procedure that uses a laser (typically a carbon dioxide (CO2) laser) to remove the foreskin from the penis. The procedure is similar to traditional circumcision, but instead of using a scalpel to make the incision, a laser is used to cut and cauterize the skin. This method is more precise when compared to traditional circumcision and also has a comparatively shorter recovery time.
Laser circumcision can be performed on both infants and adult males, and it is typically performed under local anesthesia. Laser circumcision is used to effectively manage issues such as phimosis, balanitis, paraphimosis, etc. It helps in the prevention of future penile problems like sexually transmitted infections (STIs), urinary tract infections (UTIs), etc.
Laser circumcision may be recommended in specific situations where it is deemed appropriate by a healthcare professional or urologist. The procedure may also be performed for religious reasons in some individuals. While the decision ultimately depends on the individual case and the preferences of the patient, here are some scenarios in which laser circumcision may be considered:

Both laser and stapler circumcision requires only 3-4 hours of hospitalization. You can go home the same day. Open circumcision, however, may need you to stay in the hospital for a day.
It depends upon the type of surgery performed. Generally, it is advised not to engage in any sexual activity for at least 6 weeks to avoid complications with wound healing and to prevent the chances of contracting sexually transmitted infections (STIs).
The most common signs of infection will be discharge and pus (yellowish/white, cloudy, foul-smelling fluid), redness spreading around the wound site, and/or hot skin.
Because of being a medical necessity, laser circumcision is covered by health insurance in most cases. However, it is advisable to talk to your insurance providers to know all terms and conditions of the policy.
