Circumcision for cultural or religious reasons is performed at the birth of a male child — which is the surgical removal of the foreskin of the penis. It may not be medically necessary after birth; however, it is important to many religions for men to have circumcised foreskin. At Atlanta Cosmetic Urology, we provide circumcision for boys (age 10 and up) and men. Our board-certified urologist, Dr. Tariq Hakky, skillfully performs circumcisions for men with medical or aesthetic reasons.
A well-defined circumcised foreskin can be healthier and more hygienic as there are fewer areas of the penis for bacteria to hide. This also means that there are some risks for skin or urinary tract infections (UTIs), which are common complaints of men with foreskin. There are also medical studies going on right now to determine if circumcision provides some protection for women from an HIV infection who have sexual intercourse with circumcised men. If you are constantly developing bacterial infections or UTIs, it is understandable why you would choose to have this procedure later in life. Dr. Hakky understands that this is a personal choice that can be beneficial to your sexual health — there is no need to be embarrassed to ask for this procedure. Call today and schedule a one-on-one consultation in Atlanta, GA with Dr. Hakky for his recommendations.
Atlanta Cosmetic Urology provides circumcision services for older boys (above the age of ten) and adult men only. Dr. Hakky will perform a circumcision revision surgery from a previous doctor or for an initial circumcision.

"I've been Dr. Hakky's patient for a bit more than a year now for Low T. In that time, through multiple appointment's he's shown care, professionalism and knowledge above any medical professional I've worked with. He sat next to me with his ipad, wrote out my concerns, his thoughts, the plan moving forward and a directive to direct contact him with any concerns. He then sent that all directly to my email. I am EXTREMELY confident my health is in good hands, and I cannot give him, or his staff enough glowing praise."- Z.B. / Google / Jan 09, 2020

"Dr. Hakky is such a great doctor. We first found him at a Urology practice in Snellville and were SOOOO happy to hear he was opening his own practice. My husband had an abnormal semen analysis and has Low T, so treatments were typically go to fertility specialist for IVF or IUI. Dr. Hakky introduced us to a newer way to treat both and we are now pregnant with our 2nd child and my husband feels great hormone wise. I am a nurse at a OBGYN practice and we now send all of our abnormal semen analysis patients to him. He has a great personality and knows his stuff. Highly recommend!!"- L.J. / Google / Dec 04, 2019
A candidate for circumcision will have foreskin on the penis to be removed or have a penis without foreskin that needs a revision surgery from a previous circumcision. Also, please call for a consultation with Dr. Hakky if a previous circumcision has led to the following conditions:
- A buried penis where there was too much or too little foreskin removed
- A curved penis or chordee of the head of the penis (in an upward or downward position)
- A thickening of the foreskin (skin bridge)
- A narrowing of the opening at the end of the penis (meatal stenosis)
- Chronic skin cracking and infections
You may be a candidate for a circumcision just because you feel that your penis just does not "look right." Let Dr. Hakky advise you on the next steps to improve the appearance of your penis (with or without foreskin).
On the day of your circumcision, Dr. Hakky will perform this while you are under anesthesia. You will not be able to feel any part of the surgical process. The incision type and circumcision style will be implemented as discussed in your treatment planning. Once the foreskin is removed and incisions closed, you will be taken to recovery for observation and pain management.
- High and tight circumcision style
A majority of the outer foreskin is removed with an incision placed high on the shaft of the penis. This will cause an erect penis to feel and look tight without any loose skin.
- Low and tight circumcision style
Less of the foreskin is removed in this style. Also, the scar line is closer to the head of the penis.
- High and loose circumcision style
With a high and loose circumcision, you would have a scar further away from the glans and looser skin on the shaft.
- Low and loose circumcision style
A circumcision with a low and loose style would have much more loose skin on the shaft of the penis with the incision made close to the head of the penis.
If you are unhappy with your original circumcision, there are revision techniques that Dr. Hakky can employ to improve the skin on your penis. You may have leftover skin that should have been circumcised, too much taken off in the initial surgery, or adhesions that have developed at the circumcision site.
What to Expect
Dr. Hakky will provide you with a prescription medication for your circumcision healing period. There are minimal risks to this surgery. However, you do need to watch for infection at the incision sites. After your circumcision, Dr. Hakky will provide you with aftercare instructions on how to best care for your penis post-op. Please follow his instructions as directed and make your four-week follow-up appointment before leaving our office. If you have any questions between appointments, please call our office. You can expect your recovery time to be about 2 – 4 weeks. Your erectile functions should not be disrupted in any way after recovery.
