Thank goodness they never experienced any complications from it and they all healed quickly and without incident. They are 4, 5, and 6 years old and they have plenty of skin left for growth. Had I know better at the time, Plastibell wouldn't have been an option. Then again, if I knew what I know now, circumcision wouldn't have been an option... period.
This is my case exactly. Until I began cloth diapering and reading here on diaperswappers, I didn't educate myself on circumcisions at all. I have 3 boys, 13, 9 and 2 and they were all circ'd with the plasti bell method (I thank God we have not had any problems). I don't even think that I was ever asked if there was another procedure I preferred to do the circumcision. Looking back, there are many things that I have read deeper into that I wish I had read before I started having children ~ circumcision being one of those.

But to answer the question, yes, our dr circ'd using the plastibell method with all three of my sons. We have had no issues with any of their circs. Would I do it again? NOPE!
