What are the benefits of stapler / ZSR circumcision vs conventional suture method?
Stapler circumcision is a modern alternative to conventional circumcision that has gained popularity in recent years due to its many benefits. Unlike traditional circumcision, which involves removing the foreskin with a scalpel, stapler circumcision utilizes a medical device to cut and seal the foreskin in a single step.
One of the most significant benefits of stapler circumcision is its reduced risk of bleeding and infection. Since the device seals the wound as it cuts, there is less risk of bleeding or infection than with a conventional circumcision. Additionally, stapler circumcision typically requires less time to perform and has a shorter recovery period.
Another advantage of stapler circumcision is its cosmetic outcome. The procedure produces a clean, smooth result with less scarring than traditional circumcision. This can improve self-esteem and sexual confidence for patients.
Stapler circumcision is also associated with less pain during and after the procedure, as well as reduced risk of complications such as skin bridges or excessive skin removal.
