Part of the bris ceremony is metzitza.
I was told that after a certain age (of the boy) it is not done (meaning an adult who gets a bris does not get metzitza).
Is this true?
What is the age?
Source please

    @chacham dignity wouldn't matter either for a Deorayta obligation. (Of course if it's just an archaic health suggestion there's no reason to do it to infants either)
