Re: types of circumcision

there is a wide latitude in how much skin is removed in circumcision. there is no standard, and doctors (or often interns) do it differently. those with a lot of skin removed are called 'high and tight'. what you have is a looser circumcision, with more movable skin.
none is "right" or "wrong", just like there are foreskins of different lengths, and they are neither right or wrong.
