Labiaplasty Reclaim your body
What is a labiaplasty?
A labiaplasty is a vaginal rejuvenation procedure that reduces the length of the labia minora. This surgery can relieve symptoms of twisting and tugging of the labia, itching, and irritation and can refine the outward appearance of the labia.
Is a labiaplasty right for me?
The best way to determine the answer to this question is to meet with a trusted plastic surgeon to discuss your treatment options. The plastic surgeons at CAPS will take the time to get to know your unique medical history and current symptoms before helping you to determine if a labiaplasty is right for you.
What should I expect during my consultation?
At CAPS, the satisfaction of our patients is our priority. That’s why we place a great deal of importance on your consultation. The goal of the consultation is to determine if a labiaplasty is the right choice for you. During your consultation, your doctor will explain the full procedure to you and will ask you several questions, including:
Why do you want a labiaplasty?
Are you suffering any irritation or pain due to overly long labia minora?
What are your expectations for the procedure?
What is your desired outcome?
Do you have any drug allergies?
What previous medical treatments have you received?
Have you had any previous surgeries? If so, what were they?
In addition to asking these questions, your plastic surgeon will use your consultation to evaluate your general health status and any preexisting health conditions or risk factors you may have, discuss your labiaplasty options, recommend a course of treatment, discuss likely outcomes of a labiaplasty and any risks or potential complications, and answer your questions.
What should I expect before my labiaplasty?
Before your labiaplasty, you may be asked to get lab testing or a medical evaluation, take certain medications or adjust your current medications, stop smoking, and avoid taking aspirin, anti-inflammatory drugs, and herbal supplements that may increase bleeding.
We will also give you special instructions about what to do the night before and morning of your surgery and regarding your post-operative care and follow-up appointments.
What will happen during my labiaplasty?
First, you’ll be administered local or sedative anesthesia. Your plastic surgeon will recommend the anesthesia option that is best for you. Then, your plastic surgeon and skilled, well-trained staff will perform the procedure to reduce the length of your labia minora. The exact procedure will vary depending on your unique needs. Your doctor can walk you through every step of the procedure when you meet for your consultation.
What should I expect after my labiaplasty?
Your doctor will give you instructions regarding your post-operative care. Following these instructions is absolutely vital for the success of your surgery. You will experience some swelling and discomfort following your surgery and will need to avoid wearing tampons and having intercourse for up to six weeks.
What will my results be like?
The results of your labiaplasty will be long-lasting. Usually, a labiaplasty results in a shorter labia minora that no longer hang below the labia majora. Patients who had suffered from twisting and tugging of the labia generally find relief. By trusting the skilled plastic surgeons at CAPS to perform your labiaplasty, you can be confident that you are in good hands.
