Labiaplasty - What You Need to Know

Everything You Need To Know About Labiaplasty

Labiaplasty is a surgical procedure that is being offered to women worldwide that can be for either cosmetic reasons or hygienic reasons alike. The procedure is fairly simple and it is the removal of any extra tissue from the labia region. Over time and as women start to age, the labia can become elongated or enlarged which may indeed cause discomfort when wearing undergarments or tighter fitting clothing. This procedure may often be combined with another procedure called a vaginoplasty procedure, which in combination with each other would be considered a vaginal rejuvenation.

You Are Not Alone!


Whatever the reasoning is behind your wanting to undergo the procedure, do not ever feel that you are alone and there is no longer a need for you to feel embarrassed about your nether regions. Many women whether they have children or not, have endured an accident or were just born with an elongated labia, may cause women to feel self-conscious about themselves. We are here to help you out! A Labiaplasty permanently corrects the issues and plastic surgeons have been performing this type of procedure for years. Under local anesthesia, this procedure can be done as an outpatient procedure allowing you to go home a couple hours after it is completed.

Risks Associated

Of course, the healing process is going to be the most sensitive part during this whole procedure and it is important to follow the doctors’ orders precisely. Excessive bleeding can occur and it is recommended to free the body of any aspirin-based medications prior to the procedure. Proper hygienic routine will greatly diminish your risk for infection and no strenuous activity is suggested until clearance from the doctor has been received.

Before undergoing any surgical procedure, it is recommended to speak with your physician and go through a full consultation with the plastic surgeon prior to considering any reconstructive/corrective procedures. Knowledge is power!
