Photos of A Healing Bris

Don't worry.

It's not what you think.

At least not here.

I don't put pictures of brisses - before or after - for a variety of reasons, most of which you can probably imagine. But as it is helpful to know what you will be seeing, I am happy to share with you a link of a pdf, put together by Dr. David Bolnick, Mohel, which contains one picture of a pre-bris penis, and 4 pictures of the healing process over a few weeks' time.

Here is the link. The photos are on page 16.

The swelling, as you can see, can get pretty ugly. It is not always that extreme, and, in some cases, if much of the membrane is removed in the process, most of that swelling will not be present.

Every baby is different, and every bris has a different outcome. Hopefully it all works out the same in the end for everyone!
