Are Cosmetic Gynecological procedures painful?

The surgical procedures are usually done under anesthesia, so the procedure itself is not painful, but the patient might feel some pain and discomfort after the surgery due to edema and bruises, which are managed with painkillers and cold packs and these resolve within a few days.

Nonsurgical procedures or laser treatments are also not painful, as local anesthetic creams or ointment are applied. Some might complain of slight irritation or a tingling sensation during the procedure.
