Late complications included meatitis and a buried penis.
The common complications are: hemorrhage, infections, meatitis (inflammation of the opening of the penis), meatal stenosis (constriction of the urethral opening), bridging (adhering of the cut edge to the glans creates tunnels), pubic hair on penile shaft pulled onto shaft after removal of too much foreskin, tight scar on shaft, curving of penis (due to removal of too much skin, often not apparent until an erection), pain with erection, bleeding during sexual intercourse, concealed or hidden penis (cut surface of remaining skin adheres to itself, burying glans), removal of too much skin, wound separation, and urinary retention [41].
