Risks of Surgery
The indications, techniques, alternative
treatments and anticipated results are discussed with each patient.
My duty as your Doctor would not be complete until you are made aware
of the possible reasonable risks, complications, and consequences of
Many activities of daily life –
driving, flying, swimming, bicycling – carry a certain amount
of risk of bodily harm. Both minor and major injuries can cause pain,
deformities and suffering. Similarly, any surgical procedure carries
some risk. Just as we cannot predict when or whether any of us will
ever experience a stroke, heart attack, or other major medical condition
in our lives, neither can we predict neither their occurrence before,
during or after surgery. However, the occurrence of complications during
and after cosmetic surgery is rare. Although many patients do not really
want to know these possibilities, it is necessary for you to be informed
and aware of them. Thus, in addition to the above, the following are
some of the possible risks, complications and consequences associated
with surgery in general and specific for phalloplasty, again very rare:
- Preoperative medication and
local, regional, or general anesthesia.
- Allergic reaction to one or more medication (s).
- Unusual sensitivity reaction to one or more of the medication
- Death (if an anesthetist is in attendance, he or she will
further discuss this).
- Hematoma (blood collection)
- Infection, either localized or generalized, with or without
- Surface irregularities, or areas of elevation/depression
- Collection of fluids such as hematoma (blood) or seroma, which
yellowish to clear fluid; these may be long lasting and require repeated
- Persistent edema (swelling)
- Thrombophlebitis – a blood clot can migrate and cause
pulmonary emboli (i.e.,
blood clots to the lungs).
- Skin problems
- Variations in pigmentation, with color either too dark or
too pale in operated areas
- Necrosis or sloughing, including skin breakdown, loss of tissue
(skin and fat) due to poor blood supply.
- Scars – either hypertrophic, keloid, dark or light
- Nerve damage – sensory (numbness) or motor (paralysis)
SPECIFIC for MISL and FREE FAT TRANSFER
Because other surgeons use differing
techniques and large studies indicating the rate of complications are
not yet available, I can only speak for my procedure.
However since my experience is over 15
years and several thousands of phalloplasties, I feel these statistics
The following is a list of the more serious, although rare, complications
that one should be aware of:
Complete, permanent erectile dysfunction
that is uncorrectable – I am not aware of any of the above in
my series, so a reasonable risk would be 1/2000. However, I have seen
tragic results by other surgeons resulting in the above complication,
Complete Permanent Uncorrectable Partial E.D. – Same as above.
Correctable E.D. – 1/1000 is a reasonable figure.
Permanent loss of full or partial sensation – 1/1000 – again a reasonable figure.
Bleeding – during surgery – 1 /2000
Bleeding – after surgery 1/700
Infection – Deep 1/1500, Superficial 1/200
Keloid or large visible scars or pigment problems – African
American - less than 3%, Asian less than 3%, Caucasian undetermined
Complete loss of fat transferred – 1/600 (usually able to
Incidence of lumps, or uneven appearance of fat – less than
5% - easily correctable.
No gain in length – about 3-4% usually because instructions
are not followed properly.
Actual loss of length – less than 1%- again usually because
instructions are not followed correctly or some unforeseen circumstances,
e.g., bicycle or auto accident, etc.
Poor Outcome- If you as a patient
and I both agree that you did not get a
reasonably good result through no fault of your own- (less than 1/700)
then this will be corrected free of charge.
The above figures are accurate to the best of my knowledge. Although
this list is extensive, it is not exclusive. Other factors can play
a role in the outcome and satisfaction you feel with the procedure,
- Emotional or personality changes and mental difficulties
such as excitement or depression can develop even when the operation
has been otherwise successful and can adversely affect the outcome.
- Additional operations may be necessary to improve
- SPECIFIC: - If you have any predisposing factors
such as heart disease, high blood pressure, smoking, diabetes, etc.,
these will be discussed with you.
Since it is well known that most people recall only a fraction of what
is discussed during the consultation, should you have any specific concerns
about any of the above, I will be happy to discuss it with you further.
This information is given to my patients before surgery is decided
upon, so an informed consent can be given.
