Women requiring gynecological treatments will find the answers to most of their questions in the dedicated sections of this page. You will find a description of the various surgeries we offer for the intimate parts of the body, performed either for purely aesthetic or medical purposes.
Gynecological surgeries for women
Our expert surgeons offer surgical procedures to meet aesthetic needs, such as Labiaplasty (vaginal lips reduction), or medical needs such as hysterectomies and myomectomies, and other personal needs such as hymenoplasty (reconstruction of the hymen) and vaginoplasty (tightening of the vagina).
Our Procedures :
Gynecology is divided into several branches. Obstetrics is supervising the progress of pregnancy and childbirth. It is the diagnosis and treatment of diseases of the genital tract and breast (uterine, ovarian, breast, sexually transmitted diseases), screening of gynecological cancers by smears and mammograms in collaboration with radiologists, management of infertility treatment, birth control (contraception or abortion) and the treatment of menopausal disorders. All gynecological pathologies are treated by specialists with new technologies whose purpose is to provide each patient with a therapy adapted to their case by systematically prioritizing the least invasive procedures. The use of surgical endoscopy and other techniques meet these requirements.
This is a surgical procedure intended to put an end to an unwanted pregnancy.
There are two techniques for performing an abortion (IVP): the medication method, and the surgical method, by aspiration. Surgical abortion, also called instrumental IVG or IVG by aspiration, lasts only ten minutes and requires most of the time a hospitalization of a few hours, which allows the patient to return home during the same day. It can be considered an outpatient procedure. Technically, this method involves dilating the cervix with the help of medication (the same as those used in drug-induced abortion), then aspirating the contents of the uterus with a catheter (adapted to the stage of pregnancy). In general, light bleeding occur after the abortion procedure and it lasts for about ten days. But if they are abundant, it is strongly advised to consult the doctor, because a hemorrhage is a possible complication after an IVG by aspiration.
The doctor and the patient have the choice between a laparotomy, a laparoscopy or a natural myomectomy. This choice is generally influenced by the type of fibroid, its location and its volume. In a laparoscopic myomectomy, the surgeon must open the abdomen to reach fibroids. Small incisions in or near the navel and the umbilicus are essential for laparoscopy. When the fibroid is in the uterine cavity, it is possible to treat it by natural means by operative hysteroscopy. Like any surgery, these procedures involve risks; such as secondary hemorrhage requiring surgical revision and transfusion, risk of pulmonary embolism or phlebitis, digestive occlusion, urinary infection, hematoma of the abdominal scar, etc. After the procedure, the infusion is maintained for 24 to 48 hours. Analgesics may be needed to diminish pain. The installation of a urinary catheter and/or a drain for 24 to 48 hours is also very common. Anticoagulants will be given to the patient to avoid the risk of thrombo-embolic complications. In the weeks following the surgery, the patient should rest for at least three weeks and avoid any tiring activities.
Hysterectomy surgery involves removing the uterus. Depending on the age of the patient and their pathology, the technique differs. It lasts between 1 and 3 hours.
We can state different methods: The subtotal hysterectomy which consists of removing the diseased part from the uterus, but retains the cervix. The total hysterectomy; the ablation concerns the diseased part and the cervix. Total hysterectomy with salpingo-oophorectomy during which the uterus, ovaries and fallopian tubes are removed. Radical hysterectomy: performed in the case of invasive gynecological cancers. This is a total hysterectomy with the fallopian tubes as well as the ovaries and holding tissues around the uterus.
After the surgery, premenopausal women will not have their period and will not be able to become pregnant, even if the ovaries are preserved. If the ovaries are removed, signs of menopause may occur such as hot flashes, irritability, vaginal dryness, decreased libido, weight gain, and night sweats.
