Male circumcision is the surgical removal of the fold of the skin covering the glans penis. A very ancient tradition, circumcision is a routine procedure in neonatal infants. It is a fairly complex procedure and usually done for the well-being of the child. It is also performed in adults. The penile skin is smooth and hairless, covers the glans and continuous with the lower abdominal wall. It is folded to form a prepuce at the corona, overlying the glans. Recreation of a circumcised penis is not possible. Circumcision does not affect fertility.
