Candidates for Labiaplasty

Ideal candidates for labiaplasty may be unhappy with the appearance of their labia, experience irritation or pain during daily activities or intercourse, or have difficulty maintaining cleanliness in the area. Candidates should be in good overall health and not planning to have (more) children, as childbirth can cause the operated tissue to reopen.

The Labiaplasty Procedure

Labiaplasty is typically performed shortly after the patient’s period. Anesthesia or IV sedation is administered, along with medications, to block nerve signals and minimize bleeding. The surgeon trims excess labial tissue using scissors, a scalpel, or a laser, closes the incision with absorbable stitches, and applies antibiotic cream. The procedure takes 1 to 2 hours, and most patients return home the same day.

The 5 Benefits of Labiaplasty

Women can benefit from lipoplasty in a variety of ways. Here’s a concise overview of its key advantages:

  1. Comfort: Alleviates discomfort during daily activities and exercise.
  2. Sexual Experience: Reduces labial pain during intercourse, enhancing satisfaction.
  3. Confidence: Improves self-esteem by creating a balanced and aesthetically pleasing appearance.
  4. Hygiene: Reduces infection risk by making it easier to maintain cleanliness.
  5. Reduced Irritation: Minimizes chafing and discomfort caused by large or uneven labia.

Our team can answer your questions and help you determine whether labiaplasty is the right procedure for you.

Recovery from Labiaplasty

Labiaplasty patients can expect mild-to-moderate pain and swelling, for which painkillers are prescribed. Post-operative care includes gently washing the area and applying antibiotic creams to prevent infection. Most patients return to work within 2 to 4 days and can resume using tampons or engaging in sexual activity after 6 weeks.

Risks of Labiaplasty

Though complications are rare, labiaplasty carries certain risks. These include bleeding, infection, poor healing, labial asymmetry, undesired labial size, loss of sensation, and the potential need for a second surgery.
