Genitalia major surgery is performed under general anesthesia and takes place in an operating room. It is an operation that requires a prior consultation with the anesthesiologist and does not require hospitalization, which means that you can go home the same day. Two techniques can be used, depending on the problem to be corrected:
– If it is an excess affecting the size of the genitalia, the surgeon simply removes the excess skin and mucous membrane, being very careful not to damage the vessels and nerves. The resulting scar is rarely visible because it is located along the upper lip.
– If the volume of the genitalia is too large and the lips are too thick, the surgeon performs a liposuction to remove the excess fat.
In some cases, the surgeon combines the two techniques to obtain an optimal result.
An infusion is usually performed after the procedure to prevent the patient from feeling pain.
