It takes roughly 30 minutes in-clinic, and we do a dorsal penis block, which is a local anesthetic provided to the base of the penis, which can numb the entire area. This way you do not feel anything during the procedure.

This procedure is all done under local anesthesia. I find that this is generally sufficient enough, and we also offer nitrous oxide (i.e. laughing gas) if you are at all nervous prior to coming in. We can also prescribe sedatives that will give you a calming experience throughout the procedure.
