Many women opt for urethral bulking as a treatment for their SUI over invasive surgery because the procedure is minimally invasive, can be done under local anaesthetic, usually takes around 10-15 minutes and there is a short recovery time along with less risk of serious complications. See the important safety information for the full list of potential complications. Furthermore, having Bulkamid does not exclude you from pursuing other treatment options in the future.
Bulkamid is unique to other agents because the gel maintains its volume over time, meaning that most women see durable, long-lasting results.
The procedure itself only lasts around 10-15 minutes. The majority of women are able to resume normal daily activities within 24 hours.
