Labiaplasty is a vaginal rejuvenation surgery that women may seek to enhance the appearance of the vaginal lips. This procedure is also helpful to those who experience discomfort or functional issues caused by enlarged or misshaped vaginal lips. Plastic surgeon Dr. Paul McCluskey provides labiaplasty to patients in Atlanta, Marietta, Georgia, and surrounding locations.
Labiaplasty is an outpatient procedure that is performed under general anesthesia. This procedure typically involves trimming away or reshaping the vaginal lips, then stitching the area closed with dissolvable sutures. The patient may experience increased sexual pleasure in cases in which the clitoral head is more exposed after treatment.
Sensation Following Labiaplasty
Loss of sensation is a large concern for women seeking labiaplasty, however, this procedure does not disturb the nerves. Patients may actually experience enhanced pleasure after surgery, as any excess tissue obstructing the clitoral head is removed during labiaplasty.
Discomfort, inflammation, and swelling are to be expected after surgery. Pain medications and cold compresses over clothing can help alleviate discomfort. Sex and strenuous exercise will need to be avoided for 4 – 6 weeks. Discharge and spotting may occur during the first few weeks of recovery and should be reported to your surgeon. To have a successful recovery, you’ll need to attend all your post-op appointments, discuss any concerns you may have with your surgeon, and follow the instructions given to you. The vaginal area will appear fully rejuvenated after the swelling subsides and healing is complete.
