Introduction | FAQ
Anal deformities are common and may be caused by a wide range of conditions; Most conditions are benign, commonly due to prolapsed internal hemorrhoids, external hemorrhoids, anal tags, anal polyp, sentinel pile, anal skin folds, and anal warts. Laser anal cosmetic surgery is a cosmetic procedure developed by the anorectal expert, Dr. Steven Shu, to specifically address anal deformities in a painless fashion.
Patients undergoing anal cosmetic surgery will first meet for a consultation and may choose to receive the muscle relaxant 1-2 weeks prior to the procedure. The procedure is typically performed in an office under a local anesthetic.
If the patients have significant internal hemorrhoids, they should consider treating internal hemorrhoids with infra-red coagulation (IRC) and banding before considering anal cosmetic surgery. Anal fissure patients may directly benefit from anal cosmetic surgery without a separate surgery.
