New scientific evidence shows the health benefits of newborn male circumcision outweigh the risks of the procedure, but the benefits are not great enough to recommend routine circumcision for all newborn boys

This is why there is a distinct difference between FGM and circumcision. This why one is considered mutilation and the other is not.

Mutilation: Mutilation or maiming is an act of physical injury that degrades the appearance or function of any living body.
