Gynaecologist advises patients to do their research before vaginal reshaping surgery
A cosmetic gynaecologist has spoken out about the importance of knowledge and research for those patients considering vaginal reshaping surgery. During an interview with a television network in Miami, Florida, Dr Mark Scheinberg had the chance to warn women that a lack of familiarity with the procedure could lead to complications.Talking about cosmetic surgery performed by an unqualified surgeon, Dr Scheinberg said: “Since the damage caused by the surgery [can be] so severe, the patient will require several surgeries to rectify the problem. However, even then we can’t guarantee the end result.” he said. As well as having a good understanding of the procedure, Dr Scheinberg stressed the importance of finding a recognised, qualified, registered and experienced surgeon to carry out the operation. “If you are thinking about such a procedure, do your research. Discover what training your doctor has received and find out the number of similar procedures he or she has done,” he added.
