“You are as young as your self-confidence, as old as your fears;

as young as your hope, as old as your despair.”

Surgery can be performed to alter the body, either by means of an incision or destruction of tissues. Surgical techniques can include the use of probes, ionizing radiation, scalpels, ultrasound, needles and lasers in order to treat various diseases or conditions. These instruments are used to cut, burn, vaporize or otherwise manipulate or alter tissue, including high-frequency operation.

High Frequency Surgery Technique

Vaginoplasty using high frequency surgery tecniqueThis has a number of benefits, especially when applied to procedures such as vaginoplasty. High-frequency radio waves are used to both incise and excise tissue as well as coagulate tissues.

This requires less time in the operating room, recovery is generally much faster and the risk of complications is dramatically lowered. In most cases, this method requires only local or short-term general anesthesia in order to complete it; however, at times, a caudal block may be used.

An important part of the use of high-frequency method for vaginoplasty is the ability to shorten hospital stays. In fact, the procedure is mostly performed on an outpatient basis without the need for an overnight stay in the hospital. Additionally, wound care is minimized to topical analgesics and antibiotics, as needed.

While most complications are minimal, there have been occurrences where patients or operators have experienced burning from the unintended activation of the hand piece. In addition, when deep dissection is needed, healing can take longer and scarring might be more noticeable. Fortunately, with an experienced surgeon, you can stay away from such accidental happenings.

High-frequency surgical operation can be an effective and safer technique; however, this should never be performed on a patient who has a pacemaker.
