Yes, girth enhancement can be performed for individuals with a history of urinary incontinence. However, there are some things to keep in mind.
First, it is important to choose a qualified and experienced plastic surgeon or urologist who is familiar with the special needs of patients with urinary incontinence.
Second, it is important to discuss your urinary incontinence history with your surgeon in detail before undergoing any girth enhancement procedure. This will help them to determine the best course of treatment for you and to minimize the risk of any complications.
There are a number of different girth enhancement procedures available, including both surgical and non-surgical options. The best procedure for you will depend on your individual circumstances, including your urinary incontinence history.
Some girth enhancement procedures, such as fat grafting and dermal fillers, may be less likely to cause problems with urinary incontinence than others. However, it is important to discuss all of your options with your surgeon to make sure you choose the procedure that is right for you.
Here are some additional things to consider:
- If you have urinary incontinence caused by stress incontinence, your surgeon may recommend that you have surgery to repair your sphincter muscles before undergoing any girth enhancement procedure.
- If you have urinary incontinence caused by urge incontinence, your surgeon may recommend that you take medication or undergo other treatments to control your symptoms before undergoing any girth enhancement procedure.
- It is important to note that any type of surgery, including girth enhancement surgery, carries some risks. These risks may be increased in patients with urinary incontinence.
Girth enhancement procedures, whether surgical or non-surgical, are generally not intended to treat or address urinary incontinence. Urinary incontinence is a medical condition characterized by the involuntary loss of urine, and its causes and treatment options are typically unrelated to girth enhancement.
Individuals with a history of urinary incontinence should prioritize addressing the underlying causes of their condition and seeking appropriate medical evaluation and treatment from healthcare providers, typically urologists or specialists in urinary incontinence. Treatment options for urinary incontinence may include lifestyle modifications, pelvic floor exercises, medications, and, in some cases, surgical interventions.
