    Causes

    • Sagging may be due to various reasons, such as age, physical health, injury, etc.

    • The Transobturator Tape Surgery is performed to restore the urethra to its original state, and to keep it that way for as long as possible.

    • Sometimes, it may be due to infection to the bladder itself.

    Length

    Post surgery
