Anterior Repair

Roughly one out of every ten women who have gone through childbirth will end up requiring surgery to deal with vaginal prolapse. Prolapses in the anterior wall of your vagina due to a weakening of the fascia. It can cause sagging or fullness near your vagina that protrudes beyond the vaginal opening, which can be uncomfortable under clothing or make it difficult to go to the bathroom. If you are experiencing discomfort due to vaginal prolapse, you can schedule your anterior repair with I Need A Surgery at an Ambulatory Surgery Center near you.

How do I know if I need anterior repair?

You may be a good candidate for the procedure if you:

  • Are uncomfortable in certain clothing and pants
  • Having difficulty using the restroom due to excess or drooping skin
  • Are self-conscious about the appearance of your vagina

The goal of anterior repair is to help alleviate symptoms relating to laxity and bulge, as well as improving overall bladder function without causing issues with sexual functions.

How is the anterior repair procedure performed?

Your surgeon will either use general, local or regional anesthetic, depending on your individual situation. Incisions will be made in the front wall of the vagina, from the entrance to the top. The skin is separated from the underlying fascia. Absorbable stitches are then used to repair the fascia. At times, the excessive skin will have to be removed. Your incision will be closed with dissolvable sutures.

A synthetic mesh might be needed to help repair the vaginal wall. Normally, a cystoscopy is done to make sure the bladder wasn’t injured.

What is recovery like after an anterior repair?

After the surgery, you will be given a drip to provide you with fluids. A catheter is often inserted into your bladder as well. Packs are often put inside of your vagina to help reduce bleeding. The catheter and pack are removed within two days of having the surgery. For four to six weeks following surgery, you may experience a creamy discharge. As the sutures are absorbed by the body, the discharge will go away. If you notice a strange odor, you should contact your doctor.

How much does an anterior repair cost?

I Need A Surgery schedule your anterior repair through the Surgery Center Network for $6,785, versus having to pay $67,850 in confusing medical bills. Pricing is exclusive of any implants or other hardware and is only an average. Your actual cost might be higher or lower.
