    Has anyone had the Pollock Style circumcision done in Canada? I’m considering getting it done but am wondering if anyone has had this style done and what they think of it? He is based in Vancouver BC

    Hi Brian,

    I asked this question a few weeks ago under the circ styles heading. Its been 3 weeks and no one has given any feedback yet. So kinda just have to hope for the best. How soon were you looking to getting it done. Im going to try and get in before the end of February.

    Hi Kyle
    I’ve been thinking about it for a while now but haven’t committed. Please post back here with how it goes and how things turn out I am very interested! He does lots of children and everyone seems to be happy with the results and he’s been doing adults for a while now and there doesn’t seem to be any bad feedback out there so it must be good!

    I am 18, uncut and considering getting cut. What should I go for in style? What is a Pollock style circ? Any help would be appreciated? Thanks, Alden

    Hi Brian,

    I will be sure to keep you posted. He seems to be the only one to do adult circ. in the vancouver area.

    Hi – I live in Vancouver and was circ’d by Pollock in October 2014. Let me know if you’ve got questions.

    Hi Sam,

    What was your recovery period like time wise? Were you happy with the procedure and recovery? Anything you were unhappy about? Cost?

  • #1531 Reply


    Hey Kyle,

    Recovery period was pretty quick, I cant remember an exact timeline but it went quickly, about 2 weeks for the skin to heal together. Completely pain free, never had to take any ibuprofen (or tylenol) or anything aside from the one given right after the surgery. Cost was $150 or so for the initial consultation, the circumcision was an additional $2000 i believe.

    Pretty happy with the result so far – was extremely convenient (I dont know anywhere else in van that does adult circs for cosmetic reasons). Only wish would have been the removal of the frenulum as mines a bit short to begin with, but pollock doesnt do that – only the clamp, cut, and glue.

    Hi, Sam
    Thanks for the info.
    Where did your scar end up, is it close to the head? Do you have any inner foreskin left or was it all removed during the circumcision? Did you end up with a tight or loose cut?
    I was also looking at Pollocks website and it looks like he now offers frenulum removal if your still looking to get this done.

  • #1533 Reply


    Hey Brian, whereabouts on Pollock’s website does it mention Frenulum removal? I would still be interested in having that procedure done.

    As for my circumcision with Pollock, my scar ended up about an inch and a half behind the head (when erect). Since he uses the mogen clamp, I’d say the result is a high and medium cut (since done in adulthood). It’s loose when soft but when hard is a little taughter. There is still inner foreskin left since all clamp circumcisions leave some behind.

    Hi Sam,

    Thanks for the info! Glad to hear a first hand experience from someone who has gone to Dr. Pollock as an adult!

    Hey Sam,

    One last question… Did they use a local or general anesthetic for your procedure?

  • #1538 Reply


    Hey Kyle,
    It was a local anaesthetic that was used. They apply some sort of numbing cream and then wrap it up in saran wrap then send you back to the lobby for 10-15 minutes while it numbs things. Then they bring you back in and apply the local. Definitely felt the pricks of the needle but after a few seconds was totally fine.

    I went in for a consultation today and booked the appointment. He showed me pictures of how it looked after, but only flaccid. He showed me one that had excessive swelling that he said wouldn’t go away and then how it looked normally If things went fine. Has anyone else went in and got it done? Are you happy with the way it looks flaccid and erect?

    Hi, does Dr.Pollock do fren removal at the same time? If so is it for extra cost or the same?

  • #1604 Reply


    I was circumcised in Vancouver, BC in 1999. The best way to get it done is to go to your doctor and ask for a referral for a urologist. Many urologists will do it and if they won’t (there are some that won’t) then ask your doctor for another referral. I think I paid $500 for my circumcision when I was 20. It’s an elective surgery so is not covered by healthcare costs in Canada unfortunately. But sounds like much cheaper than the $2000 asked by Dr. pollock. However if he does a good job, then the price is worth it. You only have one penis. My surgery was also done at VGH and under local anesthesia. It was done in an hour or so and I was awake for the entire process. Healing was ok except for the nighttime erections. I might have popped a stitch but your body adjusts to it and any opening will heal as a scar.

    Overall I don’t regret getting circumcised as an adult. I love the way my penis looks and am not ashamed showering at the gym. In Canada it’s 50/50 those who are cut and uncut. I prefer being clean and the look of the cut penis. No one complains about having a circumcised penis for sex, though for being uncut, there are those against. To each his own.

    Got a pollock style circ a few weeks ago, Turned out High and loose.

    Hello Paul,

    Which pollock clinic did you go to? Did you also get your frenulum cut? How are you doing so far?

  • #8140 Reply


    Hey guys,
    So I figured Id post since I found it really hard to find info when I was thinking about doing it. I just got circumcised by Dr Pollock this morning. Cant comment on how it looks bc I cant take the bandage off til tmrw.
    They are great at the clinic, super friendly nurses.
    They charge 2000 for the surgery and 150 for the consult. I thought there would be taxes on top of that but there werent. After I had the consult and chose to go ahead with the surgery the actually waived the consult charge so I only ended up paying 2000 flat.
    The worst part is the needles they give for freezing, but then after that I literally didnt feel a thing. Still waiting for the freezing to wear off, so cant comment on the pain yet.
    Overall, so far, its been a good experience. I had it done due to phimosis ps.
    If you have any other questions Id be happy to help.
    Good luck!

    • #8142 Reply


      Wow. That’s pricey. I may have to re-think the procedure. Can you follow-up after it has healed and let us know hot it looks? I’m worried about the scar line. Also, does the Pollock style remove the frenulum?

  • #8149 Reply


    Hey Matt,
    Yeah it wasnt cheap, but from what I tead online he is supposed to be really good and that made me a bit nore comfortable. The other thing I notice is that all the info online from guys who got it done with stitches complain about intense pain during erections, and I have to say with the skin glue Pollock uses its nothing more than a bit of discomfort. Plus apparently the scar line looks better due to not having stitches.
    I’ll try to keep posting in the coming weeks, but if I forget feel free to drop me an email to remind me – blake.peets@outlook.com

    Hello everyone,

    I’m considering the pollock Circumcision but I want to make an informed decision. How was the procedure? How was the healing process? Did you experience any loss of sensitivity after? How does the scar look/how far below the head is it? Which circumcision style it it (high and tight)?

    Any details help.
    Thank you!

    Cheers James

    Hey Guys:

    I can’t answer you about the Pollock Circumcision since I was done some years ago. But I can answer you on some of the others as to my own personal experience. The healing process was simple for me as the bandage was changed daily along with some cream to keep everything moist. My scar was quite small, very thin, and just below the head. I had a high and tight with the frenulum removed completely and I gained in sensitivity and did not lose any. The recovery took about four weeks and I was shown how to jackoff with lotion which I do need now for that particular sexual function. I don’t need it for regular sex and the one thing that happened for me was that I came harder circumcised that I did before I was clipped. Back in the day it was better to be clipped but today it is a matter for each individual. Good Luck and enjoy the sex.

    Hey everyone, just wanted to gain some in-site as some time has passed between threads, Looking to get a pollock style circ. Have the consultation booked for next week. My main question for the gents that have had this technique done is how it turned out cosmetically after adequate healing time, how long it took to get back to work specifically in an active job and if you had any regrets or complications arising from it. Thanks

    Are there any outcome images?

    Is the shaft tight when erect? How far back is the scar both flaccid and erect?

    Cosmetic results out of 10?
