what part do they cut off when circumsize a boy?

A guy who is circumcised has had his foreskin removed. The foreskin is the retractable tube of skin that covers and protects the head (glans) of the penis. All healthy boys are born with a foreskin. In the United States, if a boy is going to be circumcised, it’s usually done at birth or shortly after.More than 50 percent of baby boys in the U.S. are circumcised, which means more than 40 percent have intact foreskins. However, in most countries — African, Asian, European, and South American — it’s much more common to have an intact foreskin (not be circumcised).
