What Is Labiaplasty?

In some cases, the labia minora can become exposed outside the labia majora, leading to undesirable outcomes. Labiaplasty is a plastic surgery procedure that reduces the size of the labia minora to achieve greater proportions with the labia majora for a more youthful appeal.

Who Is a Good Candidate for Labiaplasty?

Labiaplasty is a cosmetic procedure that can not only make you feel more comfortable in general but will also make you feel better about your body. There are many reasons to consider this procedure, and you may be a great candidate for the procedure if you experience any of the following:

  • Discomfort during sex due to sagging skin
  • Chronic UTI’s
  • Discomfort from sitting for too long
  • Tugging or discomfort when wearing certain clothing
  • Discomfort when playing sports or participating in certain physical activities

What Can I Expect after Surgery?

Patients can expect to set aside a specified period of downtime to ensure a proper recovery. Usually, you will need to take a week off from work to recover and allow the operated area to heal. Most patients may apply a cold compress in a rotational process– twenty minutes applied followed by twenty minutes off– to the area to help reduce any possible swelling or discomfort from the surgery. Our specialists will advise any other methods you may opt for to promote a faster recovery.
