Post-operative Visit

After surgery, making it to your post-op appointments is very important. For larger surgeries like Metoidioplasty and Vaginoplasty, we suggest an average of 2-4 weekly post-op visits. For smaller surgeries like Glansplasty, Fistula Repair, and Urethroplasty, we recommend 1-2 post-op visits.

Contact the office for post-operative symptoms that concern you and don't wait for your scheduled post-op visit. Classic concerning symptoms are delineated in the post-op instructions that are provided electronically and verbally. As a reminder, symptoms that require urgent evaluation include a combination of the following:

  • Worsening pain

  • Worsening swelling

  • Worsening redness (redness that extends beyond the suture line)

  • Fever of 101 F or more

  • Loss of appetite with nausea and vomiting, especially if you are not able to drink liquids

  • Any symptoms that concern you
