The labiaplasty treatment surgery has become more and more popular among women and it is recommended for the ones who are annoyed by the excessive size of the vaginal lips, for whom wearing tighter lingerie feels uncomfortable, and also for women who feel embarrassed during the sexual intercourse. The causes for excessive development of vaginal lips are mostly related to genetics, natural birth, gaining weight or getting old. Labiaplasty is suitable and recommended for women who passed puberty, when the growth period of the sexual organs is completed. The labial reduction surgery will not affect a future pregnancy in any way or the normal course of a sexual act.
Labiaplasty is an important surgical procedure used for reduction, symmetrization and harmonization of the labial area, by changing the size and shape of the labia minora (inner labia) or labia majora (outer labia). This genital cosmetic or medical procedure can significantly improve the aspect of the vaginal area, without affecting its functionality. The labial reduction surgery lasts between 30 minutes and 1 hour, involving the reshaping or shortening of the labia, by cutting away the unwanted tissue with a scalpel, after which the lose edge is stitched up using dissolvable stitches. The labial reduction surgery is usually performed by a gynecologist or a plastic surgeon. The intervention itself can be done using either a general or local anesthetic, but the specialized doctors will recommend you the one that fits you best, in order to get the best medical care possible.
For several days after the labial reduction treatment, the vaginal lips will be swollen and the patient can feel some minimal pain and discomfort that can be controlled with medication. Downtime is usually minimal to none and complete recovery is achieved in 7 to 10 days. Regarding post-surgery risks and complications, the most frequent are immediate bleeding after the procedure, infections and scarring of tissue, but due to our practitioner’s expertise in the field, these are reduced to a minimum or eliminated whatsoever.
