Corrective procedures are fairly rare in regards to circumcisions. The most common correction occurs when the original circumcision did not remove enough foreskin. When this occurs, there is a risk of the extra skin fusing to the glans, which can lead to aesthetic and, potentially, medical issues. This is the type of correction that should be dealt with as soon as it is noticed. Of course, there are other types of corrections that may need to be performed.
