Labiaplasty is a minor surgical operation to reduce the size of the Labial Minora. An oversized labia is generally defined as Labial Hypertrophy. Women with Labial Hypertrophy show an oversized Labial Minora compared to the size of the Labial Majora. This can in turn cause painful intercourse, problematic hygiene and low self-esteem.
Labial Hypertrophy can be caused by several factors such as genetics, aging, mechanical stress such as child birth, disease or infection. This condition generally isn’t treated medically unless it’s caused by a disease or infection. Surgery is the first and best option for women who are looking to reduce the size of their Labia Minora for either aesthetics or medical reasons.
The surgery is considered a minor procedure and since the pain and care are minimal the client can usually go home on the same day. The procedure is performed in a discreet setting, under local anesthesia, in about 30-45 minutes. The use of a hygienic pad is recommended for comfort for the first few weeks. Like other surgeries, post-swelling is usually experienced. Your doctor will most likely schedule a follow up appointment 1-2 weeks after your procedure. Physical activity can generally be resumed 3-4 days after the surgery; however, the client should refrain from wearing tampons, tight clothes or underwear and abstain from sexual intercourse for at least 4-6 weeks.
Labiaplasty is a great procedure to consider if you want to revamp and renew your genital area. Recovery time is very short and it’s known to have a very high rate of patient satisfaction. Don’t be afraid to get specific with your doctor. The more information you can give them about your desired results the more they can help.
Many women believe that the best option is an OB/GYN, because they treat gynecologic problems. However, they do not have the same training that a plastic surgeon has, when dealing with blood, flow, preservation of sensation, and an overall eye for aesthetic beauty. If you would not trust your breasts or face to other surgeons, why would you trust your most sensitive and private of areas. You deserve the best, most delicate and precise surgeons available.
