Objective : To evaluate a modification of the free hand technique of circumcision for achieving better cosmetic results
Methods : The prepuce is first divided at the 12 o'clock and then at 6 o'clock. Two preputial flaps are thus obtained which are then divided from ventral, i. e., 6 o'clock to dorsal i.e. 12 o'clock aspect from below upwards. The mucosal collar is thus cut under vision and a good cosmetic result is obtained. Circumcision was done in 126 cases using this modification of the free hand technique.
Results : Good cosmetic result was obtained in all cases. No complications were seen
Conclusions: The modification described makes the free-hand technique of circumcision a simpler and safe operation that gives very good functional and cosmetic results.
