Circumcision

The foreskin (flap of skin that covers the tip of the penis) may be removed for cultural, religious or medical reasons.

The foreskin is pulled away from the body of the penis and cut off, exposing the underlying head of the penis (glans). Stitches may be required to keep the remaining edges of the foreskin in place.
