Gender-affirming surgery Risks That Face by Ricky Valerie Kolle
Like any surgical procedure, gender-affirming surgery carries certain risks. It’s essential for individuals considering such surgeries to have a comprehensive understanding of these potential risks and discuss them with their healthcare provider. While the risks can vary depending on the specific procedure, here are some general risks associated with gender-affirming surgery:
- Infection: There is a risk of developing an infection at the surgical site, which can range from minor to severe. Strict post-operative care and adherence to hygiene protocols can help minimize this risk.
- Bleeding and hematoma: Surgery involves cutting and manipulating tissues, which can lead to bleeding. In some cases, blood may collect and form a hematoma, requiring drainage.
- Blood clots: Prolonged immobility during and after surgery can increase the risk of developing blood clots, particularly deep vein thrombosis (DVT). This risk can be mitigated through the use of blood thinners, early mobilization, and compression stockings.
- Scarring: All surgeries leave scars, and gender-affirming surgeries are no exception. The extent and visibility of scars can vary depending on the procedure and individual healing processes. Surgical techniques have improved over time to minimize scarring, and scar revision procedures may be an option in some cases.
- Nerve damage: Nerves can be affected during surgery, leading to temporary or permanent loss of sensation or altered sensation in the operated areas. This risk is minimized by employing experienced surgeons who are well-versed in nerve preservation techniques.
- Urinary complications: Surgeries involving the genital area can carry a risk of urinary complications, such as difficulty urinating, urinary tract infections, or urinary incontinence. These risks are typically managed through pre-operative evaluation and post-operative care.
- Anesthesia risks: General anesthesia carries some inherent risks, including allergic reactions, adverse reactions to medications, and complications related to being under anesthesia. An anesthesiologist will monitor the patient’s vital signs and overall well-being during the surgery to mitigate these risks.
