Girth enhancement procedures can potentially be performed on individuals with a history of sexually transmitted infections (STIs), but there are important considerations to keep in mind:
- STI Treatment: Individuals with a history of STIs should ensure that they have received appropriate treatment and follow-up care to address and manage their infections. Active STIs should be treated and resolved before considering any elective procedures.
- Safe Sexual Practices: Girth enhancement procedures are cosmetic in nature and do not protect against STIs. Individuals who have a history of STIs should continue to practice safe sex and use appropriate protection methods, such as condoms, to prevent the transmission of STIs to themselves and their sexual partners.
- Consultation with Healthcare Provider: It’s essential to consult with a qualified healthcare provider, preferably a urologist or plastic surgeon experienced in girth enhancement procedures. During the consultation, the healthcare provider can assess the individual’s overall health, discuss their goals and expectations, and evaluate whether girth enhancement is a suitable option given their medical history and sexual health.
- Risks and Complications: Individuals with a history of STIs may be at a slightly higher risk for certain complications related to girth enhancement procedures, such as infection. These potential risks should be thoroughly discussed with the healthcare provider, and precautions should be taken to minimize the risk of infection during and after the procedure.
- Follow-up Care: Postoperative care and follow-up appointments are essential to monitor healing progress and address any issues that may arise, especially in individuals with a history of STIs.
