What is Labiaplasty?
Labiaplasty is a surgery that reduces the size of the labia minora, which are the internal, smaller vaginal lips that cover the vulva. Labiaplasty can be performed solely for aesthetic reasons, but can also help improve the function and comfort of the labia. If the vaginal lips cause pain while engaging in intercourse, wearing tight clothing, or exercising, then labiaplasty is an option to consider.
Labiaplasty is typically done on an outpatient basis and the anesthesia used can vary from sleeping sedation to a combination of local injections and anesthesia. The method of trimming the labial tissue is based on the patient’s needs. Care is taken to only remove the excess material while making sure enough laxity of the stretchable tissue is kept before it is reattached in an aesthetically pleasing manner. The incisions are very well disguised and sealed with dissolvable sutures. The whole procedure takes about 1-2 hours, depending on the extent of the patient’s case.
After labiaplasty surgery, you may experience swelling, bruising, and a certain level of discomfort, which can be managed with medicine. Applying ice bags, wearing loose clothes, and using absorbent pads can also help. Sitting for a long time or moving around may not feel pleasant during the initial days. Most patients are able to go back to their regular activities after a couple of weeks. It is important to note that the healing area is sensitive and you should refrain from putting anything in your vagina for a period of six weeks, or participating in any physical activities that involve stretching or applying pressure to the genital area.
