Every woman wants to feel good with her own body and is not a mystery that plastic surgery is well received these days, not only because it corrects certain parts of the body that we want to improve, but also because it makes you feel good on the inside. A certain type of cosmetic surgery that has become very popular among women is labiaplasty. The labial reduction treatment addresses all women who feel embarrassed or ashamed of the aspect of their labia, whether enlarged, or too loose, and therefore, their intimate life is severely affected.

The CAUSES

Heredity, natural childbirth, local infections, age, gaining and losing weight are the main causes for asymmetric growth or development of the labia minora. The excess growth of the labia can make women feel pain during intercourse, when doing sports such as cycling, when wearing yoga pants or other type of tight pieces of clothing and it may cause difficulty with hygiene.

The SOLUTION

At Renew Health and Clinic in Leamington Spa, our specialized doctors are more than thrilled to walk you throughout the entire designer vagina surgery, to give you all the information that you need before undergoing this highly effective cosmetic procedure. With our state-of-the-art medical equipment, the labiaplasty surgical treatment has never been easier, and more and more women tend to undergo it because of its excellent cosmetic results and because it involves minimum risks, is painless, safe and it requires no downtime.

The HOW

There are two different techniques for labiaplasty performed at Renew Skin & Health Clinic, namely the trim or amputation or edge resection technique and the central wedge resection technique that can last between 30 minutes and one hour. The edge resection technique consists in the simple resection of the tissue that is located at the free edge of the labia minora, by placing a clamp over the tissue that needs to be resected, stopping the blood flow, performing the actual resection, and then suturing the labia minora. The advantages of the edge resection technique for labia reduction include the ablation of the darkened, irregular edges of the labia, leaving a smooth, linear scar. Sometimes, after the application of this method, reconstructive procedures might be necessary. But if there are professional doctors performing the labiaplasty, the results will be indeed the ones everybody is expecting.

The other technique used for labial reduction surgery, namely the central wedge resection technique, implies cutting and eliminating a portion from the thickest part of the labium minus, protecting the “wrinkled” edge of the labia minora. This method is used more often as it leaves the patient with a less noticeable scar and it reduces the risks of complications. An important benefit of trying the central wedge resection technique is that it leads to a natural, fine look and contour, making the end result satisfying.

The AFTER

After a designer vagina surgery, certain side effects or complications may occur. That is why the doctor’s expertize is of high importance, because if the incisions have not been made carefully, the patient can be left with highly unaesthetic scars. As it is a sensitive topic to begin with, the labiaplasty surgical treatment itself being a delicate procedure, the risks, side effects and possible complications must be well-known by every woman who wants to undergo this efficient female genital cosmetic surgery (FGCS).

If you have just undergone a labial reduction surgery at Renew Skin & Health Clinic in Leamington Spa, you may experience a bit of dizziness due to the administration of the local or general anesthetic. However, the sensation disappears when the effects wear off. But once this happens, you will start to feel a little pain that can be relieved with the help of medication. Some pressure around the treated area, irritation and itchiness may also be possible, and in order to prevent bleeding, you should restrain from any type of physical activity, even walking, for a couple of days. The doctors, nonetheless, will advise you to start walking as soon as possible, but with minimal effort, in order to reduce swelling and prevent blood clots.

Infections and inflammation could lead to other conditions including wound disruption or deformation, scars, non-proportional labia minora and rough wound edges, so you need to respect the doctors’ guidance on the letter.

Other input regarding aftercare includes incision care, which is actually very important. You will have to skip showers the first two weeks, and replace the activity with mildly washing the intimate area with water and soap. Also replace tampons with feminine napkins and keep the treated area clean and dry. After a labial reduction surgery at Renew Skin & Health Clinic you must avoid heavy lifting, and practicing sports for one month, so you can heal properly and avoid bleeding.

You should also stop smoking for a while, restrain from swimming and sex for 6 weeks, and from driving while you are under medication. Returning to work will not be possible for at least 1 week.

Labiaplasty is an outpatient procedure which means that you can return home the same day. However, it might take some time before being able to go back to work, and the experienced doctors will advise you to wait because they aim a proper, clean and risk-free recovery, the outcome they desire being a new, youthful appearance of your intimate area.
