Re: If one were going to circumcise
they slice the foreskin and pull it back then they put a plastibell on the exposed glans and pull back up the foreskin. A ligature is tied in the ridge of the bell, as tightly as possible around the foreskin. the foreskin is sliced off at the distal edge of the ligature using a knife or scissors. The surgeon trims as much tissue as possible to reduce the amount of necrotic tissue and the possibility of infection. The handle of the bell is snapped off at this time. The rim of tissue will become necrotic (dead) and separate with the bell in 5 to 10 days.
