Where will my Cosmetic Gynecologic Surgery be performed?

Surgery is done on an outpatient basis. Two options are available: you can schedule your surgery at our fully accredited Plastic surgery office under local anesthesia with conscious sedation, or request surgery to be done under general anesthesia at Center for Ambulatory Surgery ( http://www.ascbuffalo.com ). Because your safety is our first concern, our surgeons always use board certified anesthesiologists to ensure your surgery is as safe as possible.

The average length of time is usually between 1 and 2 hours. May be little longer if multiple procedures are performed. An additional hour or so is spent in the recovery room afterwards.

Yes. Several surgeries can be combined and done at the same time.

Cosmetic Gynecologic Surgery recovery time and expectations?

Shortly after surgery you may experience mild discomfort and swelling. You will be provided with pain medications and antibiotics to be used if needed. All sutures that we use are absorbable and therefore do not need to be removed. Return to work is usually within a few days to one week, depending upon your activity level. Sexual activity usually can be resumed at six weeks after the surgery. Tampon use is restricted for four weeks on average. You may resume exercise approximately four weeks after the surgery.

The most frequently reported risks of vaginal surgery may include bleeding, infection, scarring and decreased clitoral sensation. Complications are possible but with our experience and surgical techniques they are uncommon.
