Understanding Labiaplasty

Labiaplasty is a cosmetic surgical procedure designed to reshape or reduce the size of the labia minora (inner vaginal lips) and/or labia majora (outer vaginal lips). Women often seek this procedure to address discomfort, irritation, or self-consciousness due to the size or appearance of their labia. Labiaplasty can improve comfort, boost confidence, and enhance the overall appearance of the genital area.

Qualification and Consultation

Before undergoing labiaplasty, patients will have a comprehensive consultation with our experienced gynecologists. During this consultation, the surgeon will review the patient’s medical history, discuss their goals and expectations, and determine if labiaplasty is the appropriate procedure. The benefits, risks, and the procedure itself will be explained in detail to ensure the patient is well-informed and comfortable with the decision.

Indications for Labiaplasty
Labiaplasty may be recommended for various reasons, including:

  • Physical Discomfort: Experiencing irritation, chafing, or discomfort during physical activities, sexual intercourse, or while wearing tight clothing.
  • Aesthetic Concerns: Dissatisfaction with the appearance of the labia, affecting self-esteem and confidence.
  • Functional Issues: Difficulty maintaining hygiene or experiencing recurrent infections due to enlarged labia.
  • Post-Childbirth Changes: Changes in the labia following childbirth that affect comfort and appearance.

The Labiaplasty ProcedureLabiaplasty is typically performed as an outpatient procedure under local anesthesia with sedation or general anesthesia. The steps involved in the procedure include:

  • Preparation: Patients receive pre-operative instructions to prepare for the procedure.
  • Surgical Technique: The surgeon carefully trims and reshapes the labia minora and/or labia majora to achieve the desired size and contour. Excess tissue is removed, and the remaining tissue is sutured to create a natural and symmetrical appearance.
  • Duration: The procedure usually takes about one to two hours, depending on the extent of the surgery.
  • Completion: Once the labiaplasty is complete, the area is closed with dissolvable sutures, and the patient is monitored in the recovery area before being discharged.

Recovery and Post-Operative CareThe recovery period following labiaplasty is typically short and manageable. Most patients can resume normal activities within a few days, with full recovery expected within a few weeks. Our team at Neo TrueNorth provides detailed post-operative care instructions, including:

  • Pain Management: Recommendations for managing any discomfort with over-the-counter or prescribed pain medications.
  • Activity Restrictions: Guidance on avoiding strenuous activities, sexual intercourse, and swimming for a specified period to ensure proper healing.
  • Hygiene: Instructions on maintaining proper hygiene to prevent infection.
  • Follow-Up Care: Scheduling follow-up appointments to monitor recovery and ensure optimal healing.
