Labiaplasty at BeautyFix Plastic Surgery is the cosmetic enhancement of the labia minora or majora for cosmetic purposes. Everyone is born with a different size and shape of labias, but sometimes the size or shape can make a person feel insecure or cause discomfort in daily life. In addition, childbirth can affect the appearance of a person’s labia, and many women turn to labiaplasty as a method to restore their body after birth.
There are two main surgical methods to labiaplasty. The first method is trimming the outer edges of the labia to remove portions a patient may consider to be excess. This method can often remove sections of the labia that are darker. The secondary method to labiaplasty is to trim sections of the labia out in wedges and attach the remaining portions together using dissolvable sutures.
In addition, some people may opt to inject fat or fillers into the labia to restore fullness, which is another form of labiaplasty or vaginal rejuvenation. Liposuctions can also be used to remove undesired fullness from the labia.
This procedure works by trimming “excess” skin on the labia to make it smaller, either by cutting off the excess on the ends or cutting out wedges of the center and sewing the remaining pieces of the labia back together with sutures. The unwanted skin can be removed using a scalpel or a laser.
It is completely normal for everyone’s labia to look different, however some people would like to alter the appearance of theirs to make it more visually appealing, restore their body post-birth, or lessen pain during sex or exercise. Labiaplasty can help to improve the overall appearance of the labia.
Labiaplasty candidates are typically over the age of 18, in good health and have an enlarged labia minora that they find bothersome or causes pain during sexual activities, exercise or other daily activities. In addition, a good candidate is one who has realistic expectations for the procedure. Book a consultation with BeautyFix Plastic Surgery to find out if labiaplasty is the right procedure for you.
This procedure is typically for cosmetic reasons only, however it can also be done for pain and discomfort caused by an enlarged labia minora. A labiaplasty is very rarely needed for medical purposes. At BeautyFix Plastic Surgery, labiaplasty is only performed for cosmetic purposes.
After a labiaplasty, it is recommended to avoid sexual activities for at least four weeks. Women who receive a labiaplasty can usually return to work after a week, but it can vary. People who chose to get this procedure done can expect their labia to be very swollen and sore post-operation. Salt baths can help to reduce soreness, but make sure to follow your own surgeons aftercare instructions to get the best recovery possible. Wearing loose clothing to avoid friction on the area as it recovers is typically recommended as well.
The full results of the surgery will be visible immediately, however the labia will likely be very swollen right after the procedure, which will impact the appearance until swelling goes down.
A labiaplasty typically takes under two hours to perform. While the surgery is performed, you would usually be under general anesthesia for your own comfort. Make sure to arrange for someone to drive you home after the surgery.
As with all surgery, there are risks associated with labiaplasty. Some risks include decreased sensitivity in the vulva or scarring that causes pain during sex. Going to a trusted surgeon with experience performing labiaplasties will reduce the risk of complications during your procedure.
The results of labiaplasty are permanent, however the appearance of the labia may change again after child birth.
