Abstract
Introduction: Circumcision is the surgical removal prepisyum on the glans that is the oldest known in the history and still the most common operation in the world. Circumcision can be done with different surgical methods. We aimed to compare the two most widely used circumcision techniques in terms of the duration and complications of the operation.
Materials and methods: The records of 148 circumcised patients were retrospectively reviewed in the pediatric surgery clinic. 73 of the patients were circumcised by the same surgeon using the guillotine method. Seventy-five patients were surgically circumcised by another surgeon. All of the patients were circumcised under local anesthesia and sedation. Patients' operation time, complications after circumcision were compared.
Results: Complications seen; pain, edema, hemorrhage, abrasions on the glans, color change due to local anesthesia and infection in the circumcised area. There were no late complications in both groups. There were no significant differences between the two groups in terms of complications.
Conclusion: The techniques used in circumcision may vary from surgery to surgery. Eventually, they all reach the same result. The important thing is to pay attention to protect from complications.

Key words: Circumcision, complications, glans
