Circumcision looks incomplete

The circumcision usually is fine but the baby fat around the penis pushes the skin out to the tip.  The parent comes in thinking that not enough skin was cut off.  It will look good later with the child looses the baby fat around the pubic bone.  See these pictures.  Each series of three pictures is the same baby.

Child #1                                        Child #2

Keep pulling the skin back and clean it.  Put Vaseline on it to keep the skin from getting stuck to the head. It will look fine later.
