The need of circumcision in most cases is based on culture, religion, and tradition in Australia (AU). Some religion, particularly Islam, Coptic Christianity and Judaism have their various views about its importance. However, some people have raised claims and debate on its barbarism involving the subjection of newly born infants to extreme pains, both physically and psychologically, just because the parents won’t let go of their old beliefs.

Planing on having circumcision procedure in Australia?
Here is some General Information about Australia:


Australia History

The continent of Australia was apparently first settled more than 40,000 years ago with successive waves of immigration of Aboriginal peoples from south and south-east Asia. With rising sea levels after the last Ice Age, Australia became largely isolated from the rest of the world and the Aboriginal tribes developed a variety of cultures, based on a close (spiritual) relationship with the land and nature, and extended kinship. Australian aborigines maintained a hunter/gatherer culture for thousands of years in association with a complex artistic and cultural life - including a very rich 'story-telling' tradition. While the 'modern impression' of Australian Aborigines is largely built around an image of the 'desert people' who have adapted to some of the harshest conditions on the planet (equivalent to the bushmen of the Kalahari), Australia provided a 'comfortable living' for the bulk of aborigines amongst the bountiful flora and fauna on the Australian coast - until the arrival of Europeans.

However circumcision has evolved from the domestic routine for a newly born child to a standard procedure that is ardently learned and practiced by professionals in the medical field. In the medical line circumcision has been more useful other than to improve the appearance of an individual. It is used as a surgical therapy for phimosis, paraphimosis (whereby the foreskin of the penis entirely covers the anterior portion and difficult to retract) and balanitis (enlargement of the penis due to infection).

Nevertheless it’s most common usage in improving the appearance and facilitating social acceptance has been the primary reason most surgeons carry out this procedures, for it is not advisable to allow the domestic hands to tamper with the delicate penile tissues. Its importance has also been debated among men, for it is believed that it facilitates penile enlargement.

Circumcision is excision of the penile foreskin. It is usually done in the newborn babies before they leave the hospital. It involves the use of a local anaesthesia (xylocaine) to numb the skin as the Ring-type clamp and tourniquet is applied to reduce the bleeding while the foreskin is carefully cut away. The clamp may be metal or plastic-like which falls away after some few days after the procedure.

In older male children, this procedure is carried out under general anaesthesia. Here. The foreskin is removed and stitched to the remaining part of the penis. Absorbable sutures are used in this case, in which they will blend with the skin after a while of healing.

Conversely, there has been body procedure that involves restoration of the foreskin, wherby a skinflap is created that will cover the frontal aspect of the shaft.
