Vaginal Rejuvenation and Risk of Blood Clots
Vaginal surgery done under local anesthesia or intravenous sedaton has the lowest blood clot risk. The risk is higher under general anesthesia because the blood flow through the legs (where blood clots would most likely form) is slower under general. Longer surgeries have higher blood clot risks than shorter surgeries. If there is a history of blood clots in your family, mention it to your surgeon so that appropriate testing and preventive measures can be taken.
