Frequently Asked Questions
At Atlanta Baby Circumcision we use the Mogen technique, which is quick, precise, and leaves an aesthetic appearance. You can take a look at an animation of the procedure on our website if you would like to see what to expect.
The procedure only takes about two minutes. We will put your baby on a soft blanket covered with a sterile field. Most often, you can hold your baby again within five minutes of putting him down, including a diaper change, marking the area, bandaging, and checking that everything went perfectly.
We perform circumcisions for newborns almost everywhere, including at your home or our home in Atlanta.
We recommend performing the procedure in the first month of the baby's life, although the second or third month is also acceptable.
Yes, we can perform the circumcision for newborns on day 8 after birth if requested, and we also perform it on other days that are more convenient for the family.
Absolutely. We are available by phone, text, email, or video chat to address any concerns or provide any guidance you may need.
We recommend applying an over-the-counter 4% lidocaine cream such as Aspercreme 60 minutes before the appointment. We also recommend Infant Tylenol. This is at your discretion, however--many families skip the Aspercreme and Tylenol and this is perfectly fine. Since the procedure is so quick, we don’t usually give injections to numb baby, but we offer this when parents request it.
No, we do not use straps during circumcisions. Someone, usually mom or dad, gently holds baby on a soft blanket covered by a sterile field.
Our fee for baby circumcision is $500 at our home in Atlanta. If we visit you at your home, there is a travel surcharge of $2/mile each way. We believe this is competitive with any other provider of infant circumcision services and strive to keep it as affordable as possible.
We do not accept insurance for infant circumcision, but we can provide you with a receipt for billing purposes. Your insurance company may reimburse you for the circumcision or apply the fee to your deductible.
We don’t but we offer a discount for families who receive Medicaid or PeachCare.
